: Thank you, Desiree, for inquiring about the subject of "what IS a chip
: chart." I thought I was the only ignorant one. For those of you who want
: to know how to get a hold of Sherry's article in Bead & Button, you can
: write them at: B & B; Back Issues; PO Box 4520; Seattle WA 98104-4520. I
: am not sure which April issue Sherry is talking about, because under
: March/April 1994, I only see the subjects: "collars for cats, fimo faces,
: blackfeet earrings, and victorian purses." And under March/April 1995, I
: see: "Donna Milliron's beads, victorian collars, Barnard Jones, Wire
: clasps, and Amber." Any clue, Sherry? Thanks!!! Carol.
OOOH! It's not MY article, I thingk it was Lindsey Hanaui (or whatever the
heck her name is -- one of the Fimo Famous, but I'm abysmal with names!!)
Anyhow, I saw it at a workshop in the spring, and it belonged to the teacher,
so I'm not sure WHAT issue it was. Maybe older yet than April.
I just took the Tory Hughes Imitative Techniques workshop, and her mixture for
the kind of transparency you need for this is half a block (standard block,
not REAL block, since Art Transparent only come BIG -- so we really mean an
ounce, here) of 00 Art transparent, plus a "pea sized" piece of the other
color/s. A 1:40 to 1:48 ratio.
