I apologize for this not being craft related but am hoping maybe it can reach someone who might know something, thanks.

On Saturday morning (4/7) Mon Henk was hit and run by  black SUV and was left brain dead. She has been taken off life support and now they are desperate to find her murderer. She was an extremely talented tattoo artist.
The accident occurred on the corner of Kent & Flushing Ave. in Brooklyn, New York at about 7am on Saturday, April 7th, 2007. Police now believe it is a 95-97 Black Chevy S-10 Blazer. It is missing the front bumper from the accident, and one of the headlights was smashed out.

If you have any information about this accident or the vehicle in question, please contact Dan Henk at (917) 554-1341 or call New York State Crimestoppers [link] at (800) 577-TIPS. There is a reward from Dan & Monicas family for any information leading to the arrest and capture of the hit & run driver.

Monicas web site is located at www.monhenk.com and you can visit her MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/monhenk

7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Eraser Clay and Bake n' Bend clay, buy 'em while you can on: October 14, 2006 07:05:37 PM
Some new info that came thru one of my lists today...

Polyform Products has recently discovered that our Eraser Clay and
Bake n' Bend open
stock 2 oz. bars are reacting with the ink on the film wrap of the
packaging. This reaction
causes the package graphics to smear and, in most cases, results in
the product
merchandising poorly at retail. While the product inside the package
is fit for a customer's
normal use, we feel strongly that the affected packaging will result
in poor sales of these
items and could impact other items.

It is important to note that these two products share a unique
formulation that enables
them to maintain their flexibility after they are made permanent.
This is a complex
formula and these are the only two clays in the world that have this
characteristic. At this
time we do not have a short term solution to correct the reaction
between the product and
the ink on the package for these two items.

There is no problem with kits or sampler packs, as they don't have
printing right on the
clays. For now, however, Polyform will not be producing (or
shipping) any more of the
'open stock' 2 oz pieces of either of these items.

How did this happen?
We were recently forced to reformulate these products for two
1) A key supplier ceased producing one of the ingredients and,
2) The factory of another supplier blew up (literally)!
The actions from our suppliers above happened within a short time of
one another and
came without warning. The result was a quick reformulation on our
part to insure supply
for our customers, and while the product remains in line with what
the customer would
expect to touch and feel, the reaction with the printed packaging
was unforeseen.

Will the product be "fixed" and shipped again at a later date?
Because of Polyform's commitment to excellent quality, you should
work on the
assumption that this product is being discontinued and will not be
re-launched. We are
continuing to investigate opportunities to solve this issue going
forward, but we will not
ship again unless we can be absolutely certain to have corrected the
problem, which at this
point, we cannot.

//////////// /////////

** Again, both formulations are fine - and will remain available in
kits and sampler packs.

8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Potsticker Dude on: June 28, 2006 03:00:41 PM
Here's my latest.  I painted his beard and cheeks with liquid sculpey mixed with irridescent powder.  The centers of the flowers are glass beads as well as two glass beads for his eyes.  I tried to match the tiny blue flowers to his eyes and only used the irridescent powder on those.  
9  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Day of the Dead wedding cake toppers on: June 11, 2006 04:43:28 PM
I made these last year for Dixie_Terror's brother.  He was having a halloween wedding with a Day of the Dead theme.  I had a great time with them and want to make some more.  I used crumpled aluminum foil for the body armature and made a hole in the base of them that was the same diameter as a wooden dowel.  The dowel was glued in with plain white glue after they were baked so they could be secured into the wedding cake top.  The dowel could then be removed afterwards so they could be keepsakes.
10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Pins I love, that never sell... on: June 11, 2006 04:37:35 PM
I used translucent clay with a bit of white and ecru mixed in and used a photo transfer technique with clip art, art for the background.  I baked them right in the cabochon setting with the small watch parts and then finished them with a polymer friendly glaze (I can't remember if I used Sculpey brand or another) I finished them with a tie tack back.  Guess they'll end up being Christmas/birthday/arbor day gifts!
