Last week I did a demo at our clay retreat in Prescott. I thought it was called a basket weave but it was actually called Woven Ribbon. It came from the winter of 2003 Polymer Cafe. Not only was it fun, it was a big hit. Everybody was doing it. The Lumiere paints really add dimension to the clay. I sold all the pendants I made even before they were cooked. I had an order for two more so I made some today and a strange thing happened. They stuck to the paper and three of them didn't feel like they were cooked hard enough.
Watch your ovens. Preheat them and check the temps. We did have a lot of items get burned up at camp but mine weren't among them so I thought I was lucky. We did have 6 ovens going at one time and the electric couldn't handle it. As soon as the electric came on the ovens spiked again and what ever was in them burned. Too much hard work not to be careful.
Here's my laugh for the day though.
