3  UNITED STATES / California / Re: Ventura County.. Central or Southern? on: April 29, 2008 05:47:23 AM
I would agree that Ventura is Southern- but when you look at the map- it is Central.

I think  it is hard to split the state into thirds.

After looking at the rules a little further it looks like you are limited to THEIR list of office supplies... but there are still plenty of items to choose from and fabric swatches is among the items listed...
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Cool Contest for Clothing Designers on: January 15, 2007 05:08:41 PM
I saw this press release today and thought it was perfect for craftsters. The contest is to design a dress from everyday objects you would find in an office (tape, bubble wrap, calendars..etc). It is part of a campaign to promote the TV show Ugly Betty. AND You don't have to actually make the dress you can just submit drawings!
I would enter but I can't since I work for the company... but I would LOVE it if a craftster won!!
Here is the site with more info:
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Switching from PMC to Art Clay Silver? on: January 08, 2007 07:51:05 PM
The only type of PMC I've used so far is PMC3, which I understand is different from the other types of PMC because it can be fired at a lower temperature. Anyway, I'm thinking about switching over to Art Clay because of the lack of Canadian suppliers of PMC... and I'm assuming that Art Clay 650 is probably the closest match to PMC3, is this right?  Is there any other major differences between the two clays that I should be aware of??
I haven't used PMC3 much.. but I remember it being very similar to the ACS650. I have read on different msg boards that a lot of people find them very similar. I am curious what you think if you end up making the switch

I received a starter kit for Christmas and have been slowly getting used to it.  This is my first pendant I made and I also made a letter N key chain for a friend.

I've read that PMC3 can be fired on a gas stove top but have not found any info on that.  Anyone familiar with that technique?   Do you know if there is a method for leaching the clay , like you can with polymer to make it more firm and manageable? Thanks for all the info, I've read through this whole thread!

I think your pendant is amazing!! I have not fired on a gas stove. I have used a butane torch and a kiln to fire my pieces. As far as the stickiness issue goes - if the clay is very wet it can be too sticky but it will always have a certain amount of stickiness to it. you can use a little bit of olive oil or badger balm on your hands to act as a barrier and that might help the clay from sticking to your hands. you can also rub a small amount of Olive oil on your tools to help with the stickiness. Hope that helps! Have fun experimenting!
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: Wicked Party (broadway <3) on: January 01, 2007 09:31:58 AM
I love this idea for a theme!
I think you could have lots of different green colored foods.... green punch, green cake, ice cream... pizza with green peppers lol.

you could give everyone a red glitter pen (ala dorothey's shoes) to decorate their shirt with their names...

what a fun idea!
