SHELLEY: Let me welcome Sue - thank you for
CARLA: Shelley, I'm at work and may have to run. May I
ask Sue a quick
SHELLEY: Of course, go ahead
SUE: Fire away
CARLA: Thanks...Sue, I just ordered your Home Decor and
book...when is the Mosaic book coming out?
SUE: I have been sitting in the sun this afternoon
correcting the text,
so it is nearly done. North Light hopes to have it out late this year or
CARLA: Oh, goody...I am very excited as it's a
technique I really want to
SHELLEY: What sort of thing will be in this new
SUE: I used to be an archaeologist, so I studied a lot
mosaics. I have been making PC mosaics for about 20 years and the book
will have lots of
different kinds of mosaic - from Roman to modern!
SHELLEY: Ohhhh, that sounds good. Did you manage to do
lots of travelling
SUE: Ooh yes - Florence and Ravenna were some of the
best spots, but I
also went to Jordan, Lebanon, Jerusalem, and lots of other places.
SHELLEY: Have you tackled micro mosaics at all in your
book? I've always
been fascinated by the very tiny mosaic designs.
SUE: Lots of micromosaic!
TANTAN: Sue, with your mosaic techinque, does it help
"tile" clay is leached a little dryer than the
SUE: And yes, leaching does help alot.
TANTAN: Good....because I'm particularly clumsy!
ALAN: Speaking of clay - will The Claypit be stocking
SUE: If we can - but they won't export yet - I've
ALAN: Oh well - I asked her to remember Europe. She
said she would.
RIA: Ohh, I wanna play with that clay too! I keep on
asking Donna and
SHELLEY: Me, too.
NITEFALCON: I believe in the Kato chat she said they
were working on it?
SHELLEY: Have you had a chance to actually have any
hands on experience
with the Kato clay yet?
SUE: I haven't tried it yet...
SHELLEY: I have been debating about ordering one of the
sample packs from
them, but the cost of the postage is about as much as the goods.
ALAN: Always the way, I'm afraid - and then VAT if they
SHELLEY: Does anyone else have a question for Sue?
DOLLSCROCHET: Yes, please.What is the best way to do a
please? I have read you put it on the end of a pin and bend it.
SUE: Hmmm... daffodil centre. I did daffodils in an
article for the
British mag, Dolls House and Miniature Scene... It is a bit hard to
COUSINS7: Sorry I was late arriving--when will your
next book be
SUE: Next book out in the winter...
ALAN: And you told me you're also writing about
candles - busy, busy!
SUE: By the way, I do have another book coming out in
September - on
SHELLEY: Oh my goodness, you do keep busy!
CARLA: Sue...the Home Decor book looks quite cool...I'm
quite excited to
receive mine from Amazon.
LJCSWARTZ: A quick question.. Could you elaborate on
your transition from
archaeologist to clay to published author?
SUE: I then worked as an archeaological illustrator for
before I found polyclay... This meant that I had lots of publishing
experience already, so
after 6 years of production jewellery in polyclay, I was all set up to
start writing about
it... describe without the illustrations!
SHELLEY: Sue, you say your new book will probably be
out at the end of
the year. Will that be just in the UK, or does that mean in the USA as
SUE: My mosaic book is to be published by North Light
of the USA - so it
will be published in the States before the UK. The Home Decor book was
quite a bit later
coming out here in UK.
SHELLEY: Do you know how much later your book will be
out over here in
the UK then, or will we be able to order advanced copies from you
SUE: It is usually about 2 months later coming out in
the UK - and yes, I
can usually order it for people ahead of time.
SHELLEY: Good - I'll make sure I get my order in early
from you, then
perhaps I can get a signed copy - pretty please!
SUE: Now why do you want a signed copy? It ruins a good
NITEFALCON: What do you have to have ready in order to
pitch a book to a
SUE: To answer Nitefalcon - you have to have an outline
a lot of photographs of your work and samples of your writing. It is a
good idea to have a
lot of magazine articles published first before a publisher will
consider you for a book.
SHELLEY: LOL. Do you think it was much easier to get
published because of
your contacts you already had then?
NITEFALCON: I was wondering if you have more
opportunities to publish in
magazines in UK than in US? Until recently, with the new Expressions, I
opportunities were limited - mostly jewelry oriented.
SUE: I have published an awful lot of mag articles in
the UK - rather
less in the States, although there is plenty of opportunity there
because once you have
books published, magazines keep asking you.
LCJSWARTZ: Back to the candles..... are thes wax or
will they be clay
SUE: Candles - wax entirely. I have done a lot of
candlemaking and my
first book on candles was The Encyclopedia of Candlemaking under my pen
name - Sandie Lea.
LCJSWARTZ: Other than writing books, what do you enjoy
SUE: Other than writing books, I like sailing around
the British coast,
playing in a local orchestra (violin) and I am also writing a musical (2
already) - so lots of stuff...
LCJSWARTZ: You are very talented, to say the least.
JOBO99: Maybe easier to say what you don't like.
ELISE: Wow, Sue! Is there anything you don't do?
SUE: Well... I am a lousy gardner...
LCJSWARTZ: Weather may be a hinderance to
ANITA: I'm sorry I got here late... But how long have
you been working
with polymer clay?
SUE: About 20 years. I first found some Fimo in 1981 in
our local toyshop
and started playing. By 1993 I was running a full time business making
ANITA: And then you discovered miniatures?
SUE: Yes, that was after my first book was published on
jewellery - I was
looking for new directions - hence my second book on minis.
NITEFALCON: Do you still use primarily Fimo?
SUE: I now use all clays - I am determined to stay
impartial and not work
for any manufacturer so I can always recommend the best clay for a
Premo is now one of my favourite clayse, but I use them all.
SHELLEY: Do you still make and sell your polymer clay
creations or is it
mostly books and other things now?
SUE: I avoid selling my work now except for special
commissions. I feel
that if you make to sell, you are likely to hold back when teaching and
writing how to do
it. So everything I design is aimed for teaching or my books.
SHELLEY: For the mosaics, do you find one clay is
better than another?
NITEFALCON: Back to the magazine question for a minute.
What mags do you
publish in in UK?
SUE: I write a regular column for Dolls House and
Miniature Scene. I have
also written for Crafts Beautiful, Inspirations, Dolls House World...
Popular Crafts --
ummm can't remember others right now!
NITEFALCON: Do the British news stands regularly have
any of the American
ones or do people get those only by subscription?
SHELLEY: Some shops, but only the larger ones will sell
magazines - they are sometimes very difficult to get hold of over
NITEFALCON: Same with British magazines here.
SHELLEY: I like the American ones better though!
SUE: Perhaps we should indulge in a mag swap - I did
that once with
people from other countries - we sent each other mags.
NITEFALCON: My favorite photography magazine is
British, although it was
harder to get in Germany than here.
SHELLEY: Now that is a good idea!
SUE: I swapped mags with Porro in Finland - it was
NITEFALCON: The German magazines stank! Too bad I am
not there anymore. I
could have sent you some from Germany.
SHELLEY: I swapped some goodies with her, but didn't
think of magazines.
SUE: I recently went to Fimo factory in Germany - it
fascinating, but they agreed that there is not a lot published in
Germany about Fimo - how
SHELLEY: That really is weird!
NITEFALCON: Germany has a different attitude about
crafts than US or UK.
Fimo is much more (more so than US or UK, generally public reaction)
stuff. Crafts are kind of poopooed and even Fimo was hard to find.
SHELLEY: Are you the only supplier in the UK that you
know of for Premo!?
SUE: Premo is being sold through some dolls house shops
in the UK - which
is a strange thing as it is my clay of choice for jewellery but not for
ALAN: It's just easier to use, I suppose.
NITEFALCON: Is there a reason why you don't like it for
minis as much?
SUE: The colours are not as natural - they are really
wonderful for mixing, but for minis you need subtle leaf green and good
Premo! lacks to a certain extent.
SHELLEY: Do you mix your own colour palette or mainly
use the colours
straight from the packs?
NITEFALCON: Is it harder to achieve the natural colors
SUE: You can achieve subtle colours with Premo!, but a
lot of people find
it is easier to have a nice basic leaf green as a starting point, for
NITEFALCON: Makes sense.
SUE: Anyone have any questions about the Polymer Clay
Pit? Did you know
that it all started on my kitchen table...
SUE: We are now a staff of 3 people.
LJCSWARTZ: More info? Sounds interesting!
SUE: 25 to 30 parcels a week and all over the
world...We have a special
relationship with Polyform, so we order all their clays direct from them
now, which means
fewer delays and we can keep the prices down, too.
ALAN: Ok - how's the TLS situation?
SUE: TLS - we have good stocks and boy, is it selling
ALAN: I'm not surprised.
SHELLEY: And I bet, Alan, you're one of her biggest
ALAN: My next Polynew article may be using it - just a
NITEFALCON: Is Polynews the UK Guild newsletter?
SUE: Yes. Is anyone coming to the BPCG Polyday in
London on April 20th?
SHELLEY: I thought it was 21st???
SUE: I have go a wonderful collection of slides to
show... ooops. sorry.
SHELLEY: Phew! You gave me a fright.
NITEFALCON: Nope, sorry. London is a bit far from here.
:) I am in
Dallas, TX now. :)
SUE: The slides are from many of the great names in the
States and you
should see their latest work! Pier Voulkos... Sarah Shriver, Lindly
Haunani, Kathy Dewey,
NITEFALCON: Sounds great *sniff* ;)
ALAN: Will you be able to put them on the website?
SUE: I don't think I can - they are all copyright of
ALAN: Yes - I understand
SHELLEY: I'll just have to describe them to you
SHELLEY: Any chance of getting any of them over for
teaching at next
SUE: I would love to get some over for next year - we
talking about doing just that at the last committee meeting.
SHELLEY: Sarah Shriver, Sarah Shriver, Sarah
SUE: You should see her latest canes - they are
NITEFALCON: I sense a fan here. :)
ALAN: Who's biassed then?
SHELLEY: Who? Me?
SUE: She is also such a lovely person.
LJCSWARTZ: Back to current magazine articles ......
what US magazines
might have your work?
SUE: US mags - Dollhouse Miniatures, Bead and Button,
Jewellery Crafts -
they all want pc stuff.
NITEFALCON: The online polyclayzine is now paying for
SUE: BTW, I am off to teach in Taiwan again in
November - anyone here
NITEFALCON: No...how did you end up teaching in
SUE: I was invited to Taiwan in 2000 - after my
Techniques Book was
published. It was a great trip and they were so kind to me. Only 2
students out of 17
spoke English, so it was all done through an interpreter. I may go on to
New Zealand after
Taiwan... So far this year I have been to Cincinatti (photo shoot for
Germany (Fimo), France (skiing). I may go to Florence to teach again in
NITEFALCON: Wow, that sounds exciting. I have yet to
visit the far east.
On my list of things to do though.
LJCSWARTZ: Skiing!! A ski instructor here!
SUE: You know, I had not skiied since I was 18 and I
managed a black run
on the 3rd day. Perhaps I am must mad...
LCJSWARTZ: It's just tooo much fun.
NITEFALCON: Black run, ARGHHH!!!! And great
SUE: I seem to spend a lot of time in planes these
days. I have another
pc book lining up, too, for a British publisher, but that is still uner
SHELLEY: I spoke to Petra earlier on today and she said
"hello" to you. She said she'd probably be tucked up in bed at
SUE: I must email Petra soon!
SHELLEY: How long will it be before it can be unwrapped
a little bit?
SUE: When we get the go-ahead!
NITEFALCON: I am curious about your trip to Fimo. Does
Eberhardt have one
big manufacturing facility (they make so much more than Fimo) or are all
pieces of EF separate?
SUE: One big factory. They use the same machines to mix
papier mache, etc - weird!
FIMOMEELMO: Efficient Germans.
SUE: They do say that they clean them out between
NITEFALCON: Wow! I would have liked to visit there. Was
on the other side
of Germany from me, though.
SUE: They make all their pencils (Staedtler) in the
same place, but they
are different machines!
LJCSWARTZ: Can any tourist visit the factory?
SUE: I think they show a lot of school parties
LJCSWARTZ: I hope to go soon.
NITEFALCON: How often do they run Fimo then? Only so
many month of the
SUE: They make Fimo all the time - they sell such a
SHELLEY: Question about the Clay Pit. Have you got any
goodies in the
pipeline that you will be selling soon?
SUE: Claypit - I am just about to order Lazertran silk
which I have
tested for this book and found great. And we will be stocking the new
Sculpey moulds -
SHELLEY: Will you be having a new catalogue then, or
will I be able to
find the new products on your website?
SUE: We will use the website to show the new products -
and an insert for
new catalogues and for those ordering. We have a new catalogue in
October so things have
to wait for that. Has anyone else tried lazertran?
ALAN: Not yet.
NITEFALCON: Not yet.
FIMOMEELMO: Does anyone know what the difference is
between Classic and
Soft Fimo other than one is softer... what makes the Soft soft?
SUE: More plasticiser, I suspect.
SHELLEY: Will you have any of the new goodies on show
at the AGM?
SUE: I will bring the Lazertran and new moulds. Marie
Segal designed the
Celtic and decorative ones.
SHELLEY: I'd better bring some money if you have some
for sale, then!
SUE: I hope to come by car this time so I should be
able to bring a range
of goodies withing reason.
ALAN: I'll send you my credit card, Shelley.
NITEFALCON: If you go by car, within reason generally
means packed to the
ceiling and you are lucky the doors still shut.
SUE: The problem is - I will have to walk the last half
mile or so to the
V&A museum, so I cannot carry that much!
NITEFALCON: I just recently got the book, Images in
Polymer Clay. I have
always used t-shirt transfers and even that was a bit of monkeying.
SUE: I was getting frustrated by the hit and miss
nature of photocopy
transfer and that is why I am so pleased with Lazertran, which seems
ALAN: I'm getting good results with Tshirt papers, but
I would like to
SUE: Can you use T shirt paper with a lazer
SHELLEY: I'd heard that the Hewlett-Packard tshirt
transfer paper was
supposed to be good, but haven't tried it yet.
NITEFALCON: I don't believe so...
ALAN: It's the best I've use. Not cheap, though.
SUE: The fun thing about the Lazertran is that you
transfer it to soft
clay. So you can then pull the clay about to distort the image before
NITEFALCON: I looked through a bunch of brands at the
store and they are
all for ink jet. I believe it's because of the heat from laser, I think.
The Epson works
well, the Avery does not, I believe.
SHELLEY: I want to try some tattoo papers - cheapest
I've seen them is in
WH Smits, but still very expensive stuff.
ALAN: Try Maplin.
SHELLEY: That's an idea.
SUE: The trouble is, all these papers are rather
ALAN: 7 pounds for 2 sheets.
NITEFALCON: For T-shirt transfer?
SHELLEY: Smiths was 8 pounds, I think, for 3 sheets of
LJCSWARTZ. I tried the tshirt paper and the rubbery
layer stayed with the
picture........ should it come off or stay?
LJCSWARTZ: Thanks. Mine too the picture, too.
STARGAZER: I just picked up some tattoo paper - 5
sheets for $10 in the
LJCSWARTZ: So tattoo paper is blank? and transfers the
LJCSWARTZ: Where do I find it?
STARGAZER: In the US, Staples and KMart carry the
Invent It brand of
LJCSWARTZ: Thanks. Maryland resident here.
SUE: Shouldn't you be asleep?
LJCSWARTZ: It's afternoon here.
SUE: Ah no - just remembered, it's morning in the
STARGAZER: heehee. I'm still working on my first cup of
ALAN: The best general source here in the UK is Viking
ROYCE3: I'm curious about the numbers of people
involved with polyclay in
the UK. Are there a lot of guilds?
SUE: There is only really the one main Guild - the
British Polymer Clay
Guild. But we do have local branches that meet from time to time.
ROYCE3: Would you say that the guild has made a
to claying in the UK? And do you have some online only members of the
SUE: I think so - our first Polydays in 1998 (I think?)
drew lots of
people together and it was just fantastic. there are no online only
members - a lot of
members are now online, though.
ALAN: I suppose I'm an online only member of the BPCG.
I don't feel left
ROYCE3: I have thought of joining a guild. I think lots
of folks have.
However, it is a bit hard to justify joining if there isn't a local
chapter. I think there
have been some efforts to cater to those who are only online members,
but it is a tough
LWALSTROM: Sue, I love your "making Miniature
Dolls" book. It's
made my faces so much more controllable. Will you be teaching in the US
in the next year?
SUE: I may well be teaching in the States next year - I
schedule in a stopover on my way to a conference or whatever and teach -
I once did
Seattle, Chicago, San Diego all in one trip!
POLYCLAYNUT: YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 *yawn - stretch* Good
morning. -- This
SUE: Petra! Is that you?
ALAN: Hi, Petra.
SHELLEY: She's my surprise visitor!
PETRA: Hi Sueeeeeeee. I'm going to make a coffee and
sit back and watch
what you've been up to. So nice to see you.
SUE: I was saying earlier that I may make it to NZ in
November - after
teaching in Taiwan. Can I come and see you?
PETRA: HUH!!!!! Really. Ohhhhhhhhhhh, our MINI
convention is on 26 of
OCT. 200 mini folk from aussie and NZ.
SUE: I have a few long lost relatives over there.... Aw
shucks. Just seen
that I will miss your convention...
SHELLEY: Can't you take a longer break and go a bit
SUE: I can't come that week - my latest musical is
PETRA: Oh well, there's another in two years and I know
a place in
Chrischurch where you are welcome to stop over. *grin*
SUE: Yes. Just so I don't get bored, I write the odd
LWALSTROM: My husband and i wrote a musical together
once. Hardly spoke
to each other for a year after.
SHELLEY: Like you don't have enought to do!!
NITEFALCON: Wow? Multi-talented. :)
ROYCE3: Is it possible to make a living from giving
imagine that the travel and all is rather draining.
SUE: Yes, travelling is pretty draining, but I was
trained from an early
age - my parents dragged me all over the place and I can sleep standing
up, just about...
PETRA: Oh, of course you can come and see me (sorry -
missed that bit in
the excitement of you coming here).
SUE: Goody gumdrops, as they say!
PETRA: I could even organise workshops, if you wanted
SUE: Sounds great - helps pay the darned airfare!
PETRA: Well, make sure we keep in touch on that
LJCSWARTZ: A quick technical question.... I am working
with the pens.
Mine are shrinking when fired and the refill does not want to go back
in - let alone
refill it later. My friends all want a pen, but I don't want to give
them anything but the
best. Any ideas?
SUE: What clay are you using?
LJCSWARTZ: A mix, usually.
NITEFALCON: I know a lot of people make a stand with
dowel rods inside
the pens to help retain shape.
SUE: That might be part of the trouble - although all
clay does shrink a
little. My home decor book has a detailed project on making pens...
ALAN: Use brass tubes.
SUE: You have to pull out the BBQ skewer while the clay
is still hot, but
then the refill slides in easily.
LJCSWARTZ: While hot... replace the refill?
SUE: No - just pull out the skewer so that the clay
does not shrink round
it and trap it in. Then slide in the refill when cool. These are for
pens that just use
the refill - not baking round the plastic barrell.
LJCSWARTZ: I get the filler in almost, but the last bit
is too tight.....
oh, I am using the plastic barrell.
PETRA: Are you using a Bic Stik?? If so, put the refill
in when it's
still slightly warm.
LJCSWARTZ: Yes, the Bic Stik.
LWALSTROM: Is there a certain brand skewer that's the
same size as the
SUE: If you just use a BBQ skewer - then you can make
the pens much
slimmer and better looking. As long as the skewer is larger than the
refill - then it
works. You may need to use a dab of glue to hold it in.
SUE: By refill, I mean just the thin tube with the ink
in and the ball
point at the end.
LJCSWARTZ: I need to read your book, I bet.... Does it
cover the skewer
SUE: Yes, it does - and it coveres making pencils, too,
much the same way
using leads. You can sharpen the pencils. It was a project that I did
some years back and
they are great fun to make.
LJCSWARTZ: I saw the pencil idea...... I haven't found
the lead yet,
though I just threw some out while cleaning before using clay.
SUE: Staedtler makes them! They are actually for clutch
pencils - you
need a good art supplies store. They are used by architects and
NITEFALCON: And now there is eraser clay, too, to go
with the pencils. :)
SHELLEY: I was thinking exactly the same thing,
SUE: When I worked as an illustrator, we used them all
the time. They are
about 1/16 inch (2mm) thick.
SHELLEY: Any particular type of lead better than
ALAN: Yes - either 2 or 3mm.
SUE: I like HB - good all purpose lead.
SUE: Staedtler makes coloured leads, too. I did think
of stocking them at
the Clay Pit, but we have to stick to clay related items or I would need
a warehouse the
size of a hangar!
PETRA: heheheheh. No kidding. I've just extended
SHELLEY: Depends how clay related. You can end up with
all sorts of
things that can and does get used with polymer clay!
NITEFALCON: No kidding.
SUE: We are bursting at the seams... I am amazed how
started as sideline to my jewellery business seems to have taken over
part of my life!
SHELLEY: Have you ever thought of supplying rubber
stamps as well, Sue?
SUE: We are now stocking the new Premo Stamplets sets
which are gorgeous.
Haven't got them on the website yet...
NITEFALCON: I've seen them. They are nice.
KALEINOR: Rubber stamps would REALLY use up the storage
PETRA: Ohhhhhhh, they are great and I've been teaching
them to stampers
and they are turning into clayers. YAY!!!!!!!!
PETRA: It is so hard to draw that line sometimes,
though, when so many
things are clay related these days.
SHELLEY: It must be very difficult.
SHELLEY: Sue, do you know of anywhere in the UK that
you can get electric
motors for a pasta machine?
ALAN: Cookshop - online. That's where I got mine, but
the machine's an
SHELLEY: Oooh - I'll pester you later for the URL,
SUE: *Grin* - Now I always thought that the Brits
*liked* doing things
SHELLEY: I like doing things manually, but my elbow
doesn't. It keeps
complaining at me.
SUE: When I teach in the States, I am always amazed
that the noise of the
pasta machine motors is deafening...
NITEFALCON: There is now a device that will cancel
LWALSTROM: Sue, do you have a shop as well as your web
business? I guess
I mean "storefront" as well as mail order.
SUE: No shop - we are purely mail order. Mainly because
this is a very
isolated house in the depths of Suffolk and all customers would be lost
for weeks if they
tried to come here...
KALEINOR: Sounds like my kinda place!
PETRA: heheheh I could enjoy getting lost in the depths
SUE: When are you coming, Petra?
PETRA: Not for awhile again, Sue. Working on Ravensdale
next year and HIA
or ACCI, but not Britain, this time.
SUE: Too bad... I always seem to miss people when they
come over here - I
shouldn't travel so much.
NITEFALCON: Where is Suffolk?
SUE: East - London and then up and to the right a
bit... It is all fields
and leafy lanes and pretty cottages with thatch.
KALEINOR: Sounds gorgeous!
PETRA: Dang, I missed it. And you know I was in a
sparrow's breath of
ALAN: Course, England's all like that.
NITEFALCON: Are there still foot and mouth restrictions
SUE: No - we are all clear now.
NITEFALCON: That's good.
PETRA: Oh. No, I did't miss it, I just missed Shelley.
I took a trip to
Poole to buy some of my other love: Poole pottery.
SUE: You must have circumnavigated Britain!
PETRA: Not quite <grin>
SHELLEY: And of course, I live in a little village just
About 15 minutes from Poole Pottery!
LJCSWARTZ: Sorry to regress, but which book covers the
pen using the
SUE: Creative Home Decor with Polymer Clay - published
by North Light and
easily available in the States, but only available in the UK from the
PETRA: It's a great book, Sue, covering wonderful
techniques, as always.
SUE: Out of interest - when I first went to the States
for a pc
conference (1998), everyone was caning and nothing much else - what is
everyone keenest on
now? Wrong - it was 1996 - how time flies!
NITEFALCON: I think there are still avid caners. I
think the biggest
thing is jewelry in general.
PETRA: TLS, maybe.
LJCSWARTZ: Having just started - I am trying a bit of
it all... beads are
of interest right now.
PETRA: Transfers would be another.
KALEINOR: Sue, personally, I like making jewelry and
SHELLEY: We've only got about 5 minutes left of this
chat (unless Sue
decides to stick around longer). Anyone else have any other questions
that need to be
asked? Or is there anything that you, Sue, would like to tell us
SUE: I find that jewellery makers and miniaturists
never meet in the
States while here in the UK, we all mix up and swap ideas more.
PETRA: Here in NZ, as well. I think it's out of
SHELLEY: If I didn't mix with miniaturists as well, I
wouldn't get to
meet many other clayers!
SUE: True... and some of my best jewellery ideas came
out of playing
about in the miniatures worl...
KALEINOR: Hear, hear! I wish I could meet more people
with my interests
NITEFALCON: I would love to mix it up more, but until
recently I hadn't
met any clayers in person.
LJCSWARTZ: Do you have a photo gallery available for us
SUE: I love exchanging ideas with all kinds of
clayers - And photo
gallery, well, that is really my books. You can see lots of pics of them
on my website. Any doll makers
here? They seem a
PETRA: And getting rarer, wouldn't ou say, Sue?
SUE: I don'tknow. The sales of my doll book are
soaring - isn't that
PETRA: hmmmmmmm. It is.
LWALSTROM: I make dolls. And I'm about to start making
jewelry using the
SUE: That's what I like - cross application of
KALEINOR: I haven't made dolls yet, but plan to try
LWALSTROM: A lot more people are offering tiny polymer
fairies on eBay
than six months ago.
