WE'LL LEARN HOW TO MAKE SOME CUTE FONDANT ANIMALS AND SHOW SOME HOME DECOR ITEMS FEATURING LOTS OF GLITZ AND GLITTER. ONE OF MY GUESTS IS LISA ROJAS, AND SHE'S A MIXED MEDIA ARTIST AND DESIGNER, AND SHE'S GOING TO SHOW HOW TO MAKE A BEAUTIFUL VELVET-STAMPED PHOTO BOOK.

ANOTHER GUEST IS LAURA HASELDEN, AND SHE'S A SELF-TAUGHT CAKE DECORATING WONDER. LAURA'S GOING TO DEMONSTRATE USING FONDANT TO MAKE A VARIETY OF ANIMALS INCLUDING PIGS. SHE'LL SHOW HOW TO FORM THE BODY PARTS, ATTACH THEM, AND USE EDIBLE MARKERS FOR DETAIL WORK. HER CAKE DECORATING BUSINESS IS SIMPLY SWEET CAKES BY LAURA, AND SHE'S CURRENTLY LIVING IN GERMANY. AND MY FIRST GUEST IS BARBARA TROMBLEY, AND SHE'S THE PRESIDENT OF ART INSTITUTE GLITTER, INCORPORATED. BARBARA WILL SHOW HOW TO USE VARIOUS GLITTER PRODUCTS TO DECORATE PLATES, ORNAMENTS, BOOKS, CANDLES, CANDLE HOLDERS, AND EVEN TISSUE BOXES. SHE'S FROM COTTONWOOD, ARIZONA. BARB, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING TO BE HERE WITH US TODAY. I CAN REMEMBER AS A CHILD USING SCHOOL GLUE AND GLITTER AND GLOBBING THAT STUFF ALL OVER CARDS AND MAKING MOTHER'S DAY GIFTS FOR MY MOTHER, AND WHO WOULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT USING GLITTER WOULD HAVE EVER COME AS FAR AS IT HAS? >> I KNOW, AND, ACTUALLY, THAT WAS THE ONLY GLITTER THAT WAS ON THE MARKET WHEN I STARTED, SO I DEVELOPED THE ULTRAFINE AND THE MICROFINE GLITTER FOR THE ENTIRE CRAFT INDUSTRY. >> AND THAT'S WHAT'S SO DIFFERENT IS WHEN WE USED TO USE THE GLUE AND YOU'D PILE THAT GLITTER ON, IT WAS SOMETIMES A QUARTER OF AN INCH HIGH, IT WAS SO THICK. >> IT IS, STILL, AND I'M A CALLIGRAPHER, AND SO I WANTED TO DEVELOP A DIFFERENT TYPE OF ADHESIVE THAT WAS GOOD FOR CALLIGRAPHY AND PRECISION APPLICATION. >> OH, I SEE. THAT'S HOW IT STARTED. WELL, LET'S GET EVERYBODY EXCITED ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO SHOW US AND LOOK AT SOME EXAMPLES, STARTING WITH THE BOOK. YOU WANT TO TALK TO US ABOUT THAT? >> THAT HAD A GOLD LEAF STAMPING ON THE FRONT OF IT, AND WE JUST EMBELLISHED IT WITH BEADS AND GLASS GLITTER. >> OH, I CAN FEEL IT, UH-HUH. AND THEN THE LITTLE ORNAMENT? >> THAT WAS A FOUND OBJECT FROM GOODWILL OR SOME PLACE LIKE THAT, AND YOU JUST COAT IT TWICE WITH ADHESIVE AND THEN PUT ON GLASS GLITTER. >> TWICE. OKAY. AND THIS PLATE-- AND THIS IS WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO SHOW US HOW TO DO. I LOVE THE PLATE. >> THAT IS A PRESSED GLASS PLATE, AND WE'RE GOING TO EMBELLISH THE BACK OF IT. >> MM-HMM. AND THE LITTLE ITEMS IN FRONT ARE JUST AS CUTE AS THEY CAN BE, A LITTLE SHOE AND A LITTLE ROSE. >> MM-HMM. IT JUST SHOWS THAT YOU CAN USE THIS ADHESIVE ON A LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS. >> LOTS OF SURFACES. ANY SURFACE YOU CAN'T USE IT ON? >> JUST UV COATED SURFACES, MAYBE LACQUER-COATED SURFACES. >> THIS CANDLE IS JUST GORGEOUS WITH ALL OF THE FINE GLITTER ON IT. >> AGAIN, WE COAT IT TWICE WITH THE ADHESIVE AND COAT IT WITH THE GLITTER, AND THEN FILL IN WITH AN ULTRAFINE GLITTER. THAT HAS THE GLASS GLITTER ON IT. >> UH-HUH, AND THIS KLEENEX BOX WITH BUTTERFLY--GOSH, BUTTERFLIES ARE POPULAR, AND YOU CAN JUST ENHANCE ANYTHING WITH THEM. >> RIGHT. THAT IS JUST A PAPER CARD STOCK BUTTERFLY THAT WE'VE EMBELLISHED WITH GLASS GLITTER. >> WOW. OH, THAT'S BEAUTIFUL. AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST, A FABRIC. YOU CAN USE IT ON FABRIC. >> IT LOOKS FANTASTIC. THIS IS ULTRAFINE GLITTER IN TRANSPARENT AND A FEW OPAQUES, AND IT'S ON TAPESTRY. GORGEOUS. >> OH, IT'S SO PRETTY WHEN THE LIGHT CATCHES IT. IT'S JUST GORGEOUS. >> IT IS. >> OKAY, WELL, WE PROMISED THAT YOU'D SHOW US HOW TO DO THIS, SO FIRST OF ALL, THE GLITTERS THEMSELVES ALMOST LOOK LIQUID, THEY'RE SO FINE. >> THEY ARE, AND I BROUGHT ULTRAFINE TRANSPARENT AND ULTRAFINE OPAQUE, AND ON THE-- THIS IS A PRESSED-GLASS PLATE SO THAT THE PATTERN IS ALREADY ON THE PLATE. >> UH-HUH. >> AND SO I'M JUST--THAT'S WHAT MAKES IT SO SIMPLE. YOU JUST SIMPLY TOUCH THE ADHESIVE BOTTLE TO THE PLATE AND JUST START SQUEEZING. >> IT'S KIND OF A WHITE, I MEAN, SO YOU CAN SEE WHERE YOU'RE PUTTING THE ADHESIVE. >> EXACTLY, UH-HUH. >> AND AS THICK AS YOU WANT. >> THICK OR THIN, AND THEN YOU JUST SIMPLY TAP IT ON, AND I BLOW IT OFF AT THAT POINT. >> UH-HUH. >> AND YOU CAN JUST KEEP GOING AND GOING UNTIL YOU'VE GOT ENOUGH ON THERE THAT YOU'RE COMFORTABLE WITH IT. >> AND SO IS IT BETTER TO DO SEVERAL THIN COATS THAN TO MAKE IT SO THICK? > NO, THIS ONE IS--YOU REALLY JUST PUT THE ADHESIVE ON, AND THE GLITTER THAT TOUCHES THE ADHESIVE FIRST IS THE WINNER. >> OH, OKAY. >> BECAUSE IT'S THE VIEWING FROM THE OTHER SIDE THAT YOU'RE GOING TO SEE. >> OH, AND SO THESE COULD BE USED FOR SNACK TRAYS OR SOMETHING. I MEAN, THEY'RE USEABLE. >> THEY ARE USEABLE. YOU CAN COVER THIS WITH A CLEAR COAT ON THE BACK AFTERWARDS IF YOU LIKE, BUT THE FRONT IS COMPLETELY GLITTER-FREE WHEN YOU TURN IT OVER ON THE OTHER SIDE. YOU CAN SEE IT IS WHITE GLUE THAT DRIES CLEAR. >> OH, IT DRIES. >> IT DRIES ABSOLUTELY CLEAR. >> AND SO YOU WOULD PUT THE CLEAR COAT ON THE BACK JUST MOSTLY TO PROTECT IT. >> JUST TO PROTECT IT, AND IF YOU DIDN'T, YOU COULD STILL WASH THIS PLATE BY HAND AND WIPE IT DRY. >> UH-HUH. >> IT'S NOT DISHWASHER-PROOF. >> OKAY, SO HAND WASH, BUT WHEN YOU'RE HAVING SOMETHING SPECIAL, THAT'S OKAY. >> IT'S FINE. YES. >> WE'LL SET THIS OVER HERE, AND THIS IS A TOTALLY DIFFERENT TECHNIQUE. WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE POPULARITY OF BUTTERFLIES. >> AND YOU CAN USE THIS AS I DID ON THE OBJECT THAT THE GLASS CANDLE IS IN OVER THERE. >> I NOTICED YOU HAD BUTTERFLIES ON THIS, UH-HUH. >> RIGHT, SO I JUST SIMPLY TOOK A PERMANENT INK AND STAMPED IT, AND THEN I DRIED IT WITH A HEAT TOOL. >> ON THE OUTSIDE. >> THIS IS ON THE OUTSIDE. >> WHY DO YOU HAVE TO DRY IT? COULD YOU JUST LET IT SET? >> UH, YOU NEED TO DRY A PERMANENT INK. >> OH, OKAY. >> IT'S NICE AND BLACK, THE PERMANENT INKS ARE. AND THEN YOU CAN OUTLINE IT, AND THEN YOU CAN ADD--OUTLINE IT AND PUT ON THE BLACK GLITTER, AND THEN WHEN THE BLACK GLITTER IS DRY, YOU JUST SIMPLY ADD THE COLOR. >> YOU MAKE THAT LOOK SO SIMPLE. >> THANK YOU, AND SO YOU CAN JUST PUT THREE COLORS ON. WE JUST PUT THE GLUE ON AND A COUPLE COLORS OF GLITTER. >> AND YOU HIT IT ON THE SIDE, SO THAT YOU DON'T WASTE ANYTHING. >> RIGHT, I'M JUST GOING TO TRY TO POP IT BACK IN THE TRAY. >> UH-HUH. IS YOUR WORKROOM JUST COVERED WITH GLITTER? >> IT IS. AND IT CLINGS, AS YOU CAN SEE. >> UH-HUH. >> BUT IT WILL NOT CLING. I BLOW THAT OFF, AND IT WILL NOT CLING AFTERWARDS. AGAIN, YOU CAN COAT IT WITH CLEAR NAIL POLISH OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, BUT IT REALLY WILL STAY PERMANENTLY THERE. >> OKAY. SO ONCE YOU BLOW THIS OFF, AND THEN ON THE INSIDE AGAIN, IT STILL LOOKS MILKY WHITE, BUT THAT DRIES CLEAR. >> IT DRIES CLEAR AND THE COLOR WILL POP THROUGH. >> WOW, THAT'S AMAZING. >> IT'LL BE BEAUTIFUL. >> WELL, GOSH, IS THERE--YOU SAID ANY SURFACE, JUST ABOUT, CAN BE USED WITH THESE FINE GLITTERS. >> RIGHT, THIS IS DESIGNER DRIES CLEAR ADHESIVE, AND SO WE'VE USED IT HERE ON PAPER, ON METAL, ON GLASS. >> CANDLES. >> MM-HMM, ON WAX CANDLES, ON LEATHER BOOKS, AND ON METAL. THE CANDLESTICK IS METAL. >> OH, YOU KNOW, I FORGOT TO SHOW THIS, BECAUSE THIS IS THE CANDLE AT THE TOP, AND THEN YOU'VE USED IT ON THE METAL ON THAT, TOO, SO I'D FORGOTTEN ALL ABOUT--I THINK YOU NEED TO LEAVE THAT HERE, IT LOOKS SO PRETTY, BY THE WAY. >> IT DOES LOOK GOOD, AND THAT'S GLASS GLITTER. THE ORANGE IS GLASS GLITTER, AND THE GREEN IS AN ULTRAFINE POLYESTER. >> AND ARE THESE JUST IN ALL OF OUR CRAFT STORES? >> A LOT OF THEM, YES. >> OKAY, SO WE CAN GO AND GET ALL THE--HOW MANY DIFFERENT COLORS ARE THERE? >> I HAVE ABOUT 450. >> I THINK WE CAN ALL FIND SOMETHING. >> INCLUDING THE GLASS, ABOUT 700. >> WOW! WELL, YOU'VE COME A LONG WAY FROM WORKING WITH GLITTER AS A CHILD THEN, HAVEN'T YOU? >> OH, YES, MY FIRST EXPERIENCE WAS A CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT, AND IT WENT FORWARD FROM THERE. >> WELL, YOU JUST DO BEAUTIFUL WORK. THANK YOU FOR SHOWING US HOW TO DO THIS. >> YOU'RE WELCOME. THANK YOU.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

>> LAURA, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE. I WAS SO SURPRISED WHEN I FIRST MET YOU AND YOU TOLD ME YOU HAD NOT TAKEN FORMAL TRAINING OR GONE TO A CULINARY SCHOOL OR ANYTHING. YOU'VE JUST GOTTEN INTO CAKE DECORATING ALL ON YOUR OWN, WHICH IS NICE, BECAUSE IT GIVES THE REST OF US HOPE THAT WE CAN DO THAT, TOO, BUT I WANTED TO ASK YOU, WHAT'S THE HARDEST? PEOPLE? ANIMALS? WHAT'S THE HARDEST THING YOU DO? >> I THINK THE HUMAN FIGURE IS THE HARDEST, JUST MAKING THEM ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE A PERSON. IT'S REALLY DIFFICULT, AND I'VE BEEN DIVING INTO THAT LATELY, AND AM PROGRESSIVELY GETTING A LITTLE BETTER. >> SORT OF A NEW CHALLENGE FOR YOU. >> RIGHT, IT IS, AND I DO ENJOY A CHALLENGE. >> WELL, AND YOU SAID EVEN WHEN YOU DECIDED TO MAKE PIGS, TO SHOW US HOW TO MAKE AN ANIMAL, WHICH I THINK THOSE WOULD BE KIND OF HARD, TOO. BUT YOU SAID A LOT OF TIMES, YOU LOOK AT CLIP ART OR COLORING BOOKS OR THINGS LIKE THAT, SO IT WOULD BE EASIER IF YOU'RE DOING A CARTOONISH VERSION OF SOMETHING. >> CORRECT. CORRECT. A LOT OF TIMES IF I'M DOING A MORE REALISTIC VERSION OF A PIG, IT'LL JUST BE ONE-DIMENSIONAL, AND THEN I'LL HAND PAINT IT WITH THE FOOD COLORING. >> OH. UH-HUH. >> SO I'LL SHADE IT AND ALL THAT GOOD STUFF. >> WELL, YOU'RE SORT OF THE FONDANT LADY, BECAUSE YOU DO EVERYTHING WITH FONDANT, AND, EVIDENTLY, YOU LIKE WORKING WITH IT. >> I DO. I ENJOY IT. >> WHAT ARE THE OTHER ADVANTAGES TO IT? >> IT DRIES. IT'S VERY PLIABLE. YOU CAN MOLD IT INTO ALMOST ANY SHAPE THAT YOU WOULD LIKE, AND THEN IT KEEPS ITS FORM AFTER YOU HAVE IT THERE AND LET IT DRY FOR A WHILE, AND THEN YOU CAN TINT IT DIFFERENT COLORS. YOU CAN USE FOOD COLORING MARKERS ON IT TO GIVE A LITTLE BIT MORE DEFINITION AND DIMENSION AND SHADING. >> WELL, I KNOW WHEN I FIRST SAW IT, AND I THINK IT WAS WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT, IT WAS ALWAYS WHITE, AND YOU HAD TO COLOR IT AND KNEAD THAT COLOR IN. >> CORRECT. >> IT WAS KIND OF HARD THEN, BUT NOW YOU CAN BUY ALL SORTS OF COLORS. DO YOU HAVE A PREFERENCE? >> I PREFER JUST BUYING THE PLAIN WHITE FONDANT, AND THEN I COLOR IT MYSELF. THAT WAY YOU CAN MATCH IT. >> SO DID YOU COLOR THIS PINK YOURSELF? >> I DID. I COLORED THAT LAST NIGHT TO GET IT READY FOR TODAY, AND YOU CAN MAKE PIGGY PINK IF YOU WANT. YOU CAN MAKE IT MORE OF A DUSKY ROSE, IF YOU'D LIKE. IT JUST DEPENDS ON THE COLOR AND THE LOOK THAT YOU'RE GOING FOR. >> I SEE. WELL, LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT THIS. THIS IS WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO TEACH US HOW TO MAKE, THIS LITTLE PIG. >> RIGHT. >> AND DID IT TAKE A LONG TIME? >> IT DIDN'T. >> AND I NOTICED THAT THE LITTLE HOOVES ARE PAINTED, SO YOU PAINTED THOSE. YOU DIDN'T PUT MORE FONDANT ON. >> RIGHT. I MEAN, YOU CAN USE-- DO LITTLE CIRCLE CUTOUTS OF FONDANT ON THE FEET FOR ANY TYPE OF ANIMAL, OR YOU CAN USE FOOD COLORING MARKERS, WHICH I ENJOY QUITE A BIT. IT JUST DEPENDS ON THE LOOK THAT YOU'RE GOING FOR. >> EVEN HAS THE LITTLE TAIL, THE LITTLE COIL TAIL ON THE BACK. VERY REALISTIC. NOW THIS IS A DIFFERENT VERSION, AND I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S THE SAME PIG AT ANOTHER STAGE, BUT-- AND I WOULD ASSUME THE THICKER THE ANIMAL OR PERSON OR WHATEVER, THE LONGER IT TAKES TO DRY, IS THAT CORRECT? >> RIGHT. THIS IS JUST ONE SOLID PIECE OF FONDANT THAT I JUST MOLDED AND GAVE HIM LITTLE HOOVES AND DEFINITION, SO IT LOOKED LIKE HE HAD LITTLE LEGS AND THE MOUTH AND EVERYTHING, SO I JUST MOLDED HIM BY HAND. >> FREEHAND. >> PRETTY MUCH, AND THIS ONE IS PIECED TOGETHER. I MADE ALL THE PARTS SEPARATELY. >> I SEE, AND IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO TODAY TO SHOW US HOW TO MAKE THIS? >> CORRECT. CORRECT. >> SO YOU'VE GOT YOUR FONDANT, AND YOU TINTED IT THE COLOR PINK, PIGGY PINK THAT YOU WANTED. >> THAT IS CORRECT, AND THEN YOU JUST KNEAD IT TO MAKE SURE IT'S NICE AND PLIABLE, AND THEN YOU JUST PULL OFF THE AMOUNT OF FONDANT THAT YOU WOULD LIKE FOR--OOH! THROWING IT. >> JUST LIKE PLAY-DOH, ISN'T IT? >> IT IS LIKE PLAY-DOH. WE PLAY WITH LOTS OF PLAY-DOH AT MY HOUSE. MY DAUGHTER LOVES IT. >> YOUR KIDS LOVE TO DO THIS, TOO. DO THEY EVER HELP YOU CREATE? >> SOMETIMES, IF IT'S A FAMILY CAKE. >> I SEE. >> IF IT'S SOMETHING FOR A CUSTOMER, THEN I KINDLY REQUEST THAT... >> THEY GO WATCH TV OR PLAY GAMES OR DO HOMEWORK. >> THAT'S CORRECT. SO I JUST START OFF WITH, UM... >> THE BODY. >> RIGHT, A LITTLE CIRCLE FOR THE BODY, AND IT CAN BE AS BIG OR AS LITTLE AS YOU WOULD LIKE IT TO BE. NORMALLY, I LIKE TO DO A LITTLE INDENTION THAT YOU'RE GOING TO PLACE THE HEAD. >> OH, OKAY. KIND OF LIKE BUILDING A SNOWMAN. >> PRETTY MUCH. >> AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO COVER THE FONDANT THEN WHILE YOU'RE WORKING WITH IT. IT DOESN'T DRY OUT THAT QUICKLY. >> NO. SOMETIMES WHEN I AM WORKING ON IT AT HOME, IF I KNOW THAT I'M GOING TO BE MESSING WITH ONE PARTICULAR, JUST PIECE OF FONDANT, I WILL COVER THE REST WHILE I'M WORKING. >> JUST A PLASTIC WRAP OVER IT. >> THAT'S CORRECT. SO THEN YOU MAKE ANOTHER LITTLE BALL FOR THE HEAD. THAT MIGHT BE A LITTLE TOO BIG. AND JUST ROLL IT UP, AND A LOT OF TIMES, I JUST LIKE TO-- YOU CAN EITHER PIECE THE EARS ON. >> THAT'S WHAT I WAS LOOKING AT. IT LOOKED YOU JUST SORT OF PULLED THAT DOWN. >> RIGHT. I LIKE TO JUST... TO FORM THEM... >> MM-HMM. >> ON THERE, AND SOMETIMES, YOU CAN USE YOUR TOOLS TO GIVE IT THE NICE LITTLE INDENTIONS... >> I SEE. UH-HUH. >> THAT YOU'D LIKE. >> I BET YOU LEARN THINGS ABOUT, LIKE IN THIS CASE, PIGS, THAT YOU NEVER OBSERVED BEFORE, DIDN'T YOU? >> RIGHT. >> NEVER PAID ANY ATTENTION TO THEM. >> OKAY, AND THEN AFTER YOU HAVE YOUR BODY MADE AND THEN YOUR HEAD, I ALWAYS PUT A LITTLE BIT OF WATER, AND THEN ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PIGGY. AND THEN I USE A LOT OF TOOTHPICKS TO HOLD, YOU KNOW, STUFF TOGETHER. JUST GIVES IT A LITTLE BIT MORE STRUCTURE. >> OH, UH-HUH. >> I'LL JUST THROW THAT IN THERE. >> I SEE, BECAUSE IT MIGHT DRY, BUT THEN IT MIGHT ALSO, THE HEAD FALL OFF IF YOU DIDN'T HAVE SOMETHING HOLDING THE TWO TOGETHER. I SEE. >> THAT IS CORRECT, AND THEN IF HE'S LEANING BACK A LITTLE BIT, YOU CAN JUST REPOSITION IT. SO YOU'VE GOT YOUR BODY AND YOUR HEAD OF YOUR LITTLE PIGLET. >> MM-HMM, AND AT THIS POINT, IT COULD GO INTO A CAT, YOU KNOW. IT KIND OF HAS THE SAME EARS. >> THAT'S CORRECT, AND THEN FOR THE LEGS, I JUST ROLL IT OUT. EVERYBODY'S MADE A SNAKE WITH PLAY-DOH. >> SNAKE. MM-HMM. >> NOW, THIS IS GOING TO BE THE LEGS OR ARMS? >> THE LEGS. >> LEGS. I GUESS PIGS DON'T REALLY HAVE ARMS. >> A LOT OF TIMES I LIKE THE END THAT I CUT TO BE THE BOTTOM OF THE FOOT, AND THEN I JUST-- >> WHERE THE HOOF IS. I SEE. >> THAT IS CORRECT, AND THEN I JUST PUSH DOWN ON THE OPPOSITE END AND THEN JUST ADD A LITTLE WATER. >> IT'S AMAZING THAT JUST A LITTLE WATER WILL ACTUALLY HOLD THESE TOGETHER. YOU'D THINK YOU MIGHT NEED SOME TYPE OF A GUM ADHESIVE OF SOME SORT. >> WELL, THE FONDANT IS REALLY STICKY, SO ONCE YOU ADD THE WATER, IT ALMOST CREATES LIKE A PASTE OR A GLUE, AND THEN AFTER IT DRIES, IT DOES A REALLY GOOD JOB OF JUST ADHERING. >> IT'S TAKING SHAPE, SO TO SPEAK. >> IT IS. SOMETIMES YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR FONDANT FIGURE WILL START TO KIND OF LEAN BACK, SO JUST REPOSITION HIM TO GET HIM HOW YOU WANT HIM, AND THEN I ALWAYS--I LIKE TO DO LITTLE INDENTIONS FOR THE HOOVES. >> KIND OF HARD TO WORK AT AN ANGLE THAT'S WHERE YOU'RE NOT USED TO IT, TOO. >> THAT'S OKAY. >> SO IT'S JUST A LITTLE INDENTION AT THE VERY TOP OF THE HOOF. >> MM-HMM, FOR THEIR LITTLE TOES, AND THE ARMS ARE EXACTLY JUST LIKE THE FEET. >> UH-HUH. NOW YOU'RE MAKING THE WHAT? >> THE LITTLE SNOUT. >> OH, THE SNOUT, UH-HUH. AND DO THOSE CAKE MARKERS--THEY ARE EDIBLE. I MEAN, WE DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO THINK THEY CAN USE THEIR SHARPIES OR WHATEVER. >> IT'S FOODWRITERS, AND I ORDER A LOT OF STUFF ONLINE, AND YOU JUST--YEAH, YOU DON'T WANT TO USE A SHARPIE. >> RIGHT. >> THAT'S NOT GOOD. SO A LOT OF TIMES, I'LL JUST USE ONE OF MY LITTLE TOOLS TO MAKE LITTLE DIVOTS FOR THE EYES. >> SO YOU'RE GOING TO...? >> MAKE THE SNOUT. >> OH, OKAY. >> YOU JUST KIND OF, JUST FORM IT. >> WHAT DID YOU MAKE THE--YOU MADE THE HOLES FOR THE LITTLE EYES, THEN ARE THOSE LITTLE CANDIES, OR IS THAT OUT OF FONDANT, TOO? >> IT'S JUST LITTLE FONDANT. >> HUH. LITTLE SCRAPS. >> AND THEN I JUST TOOK A BLACK FOOD MARKER AND JUST PUT THE LITTLE DOTS ON THERE. YOU CAN EVEN, IF YOU WANT, GIVE THEM LITTLE LIDS TO MAKE THEM LOOK MORE REALISTIC. IT JUST DEPENDS ON HOW IN DEPTH YOU WANT TO GET. SO WHEN I DO THE LITTLE SNOUT, I ALWAYS LIKE TO DO A LITTLE CUT FOR THE MOUTH, AND THEN THE WAY YOU GET HIM TO LOOK LIKE HE'S SMILING, YOU KIND OF... >> CURVE IT. >> CURVE IT UP. AND THEN YOU MAKE YOUR LITTLE HOLES FOR HIS NOSE. >> OKAY, SO NOW YOU'RE GOING TO ATTACH. >> I AM. >> OH, AND YOU'RE USING ANOTHER PIECE OF TOOTHPICK ON THAT, BUT YOU DIDN'T ON THE ARMS AND THE LEGS. WHY NOT? >> IT JUST DEPENDS. IT HAS MORE SURFACE AREA FOR IT TO STICK. >> OH, OKAY. >> AND THIS IS JUST ON THE FRONT, SO IT MIGHT JUST-- >> FALL OFF. >> FALL OFF. SO I PUT A LITTLE BIT OF WATER AROUND THIS AREA AND ON THE SNOUT, AND KIND OF JUST PUSH IT INTO PLACE. >> THAT MAKES IT A PIG, RIGHT THERE. YOU'VE GOT THAT PIGGY LOOK NOW. >> AND THEN THE LITTLE CURLY TAIL KIND OF HELPS TOP HIM OFF. SO YOU JUST MAKE ANOTHER SNAKE. >> MM-HMM, BUT A TINY ONE NOW. >> RIGHT, AND THEN I JUST ROLL THEM UP KIND OF LIKE A LITTLE CINNAMON BUN.

[SHERYL CHUCKLES] YOU CAN MAKE THEM AS LARGE

OR, YOU KNOW, AS SMALL AS YOU WOULD LIKE, STICKING UP IN THE AIR, I MEAN, THERE ARE REALLY NO LIMITS. YOU JUST KIND OF MAKE THEM YOUR OWN. JUST GOING TO ADD JUST A LITTLE BIT OF WATER ON THE BACK. >> NOW DO YOU NEED TO LET THE FONDANT COMPLETELY DRY BEFORE YOU START COLORING THE PIECES, OR COULD WE GO AHEAD AND DO THAT IMMEDIATELY? >> YOU CAN DO IT IMMEDIATELY. >> YOU CAN? OKAY, SO THAT'S REALLY ALL THAT'S LACKING IS TO PUT THE EXPRESSIONS, THE HOOVES. >> RIGHT. >> THAT REALLY DOES MAKE A CUTE CAKE, AND, YOU KNOW, ADULT OR CHILD WOULD BE HAPPY TO HAVE THAT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR SHOWING US HOW TO MAKE ANIMALS. I APPRECIATE IT. >> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

>> LISA, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE TODAY, AND WHEN YOU COME, I ALWAYS KNOW WE'RE GOING TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW ABOUT STAMPING, BECAUSE YOU LOVE TO STAMP. >> YES. >> AND MAKE ALL KINDS OF THINGS, BUT I THOUGHT PROBABLY IT WAS LIMITED TO CRAFT PRODUCTS AND, YOU KNOW, PAPER, BUT IT'S NOT, IS IT? >> NO. NO. THIS IS A WHOLE OTHER STAMPING AREA. I'M STILL USING MY STAMPS, SO I'M STILL IN LOVE WITH MY STAMPS, BUT I'M JUST USING IT IN A DIFFERENT MEDIUM. >> UH-HUH. WELL, AND THE MEDIUM IS VELVET. >> IS VELVET, YES. >> USING IT ON VELVET. >> THE VELVET STAMPING HAS BEEN AROUND FOR QUITE SOME TIME. >> HAS IT? AND YOU TALKED ABOUT THAT IT NEEDS TO BE A CERTAIN TYPE OF VELVET. >> YES. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I LEARNED VERY EARLY ON IS IF YOU DON'T BUY THE RAYON ACETATE, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GET A GOOD IMPRESSION. >> OKAY. THIS IS THE RAYON ACETATE. >> THIS BLACK IS RAYON ACETATE. >> AND THIS IS THE STAMP. PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE IT A LITTLE MORE. I DON'T KNOW THAT I CAN EVEN SHOW IT ENOUGH TO SEE, BUT THERE'S A BEAUTIFUL FLORAL STAMP PATTERN ON HERE, AND YOU'RE GOING TO SHOW US HOW TO DO THAT. >> YES, AND THIS IS A CHEAPER-- A CHEAPER VELVET, AND THIS IS THE VELVET THAT YOU DO NOT WANT TO USE, BECAUSE IF YOU LOOK AT IT-- >> I CAN'T EVEN SEE THE PATTERN. >> YOU CAN'T SEE THE IMPRESSION, EXACTLY. >> AND ON THIS YOU CAN REALLY SEE HOW IT LOOKS. >> YES. SO WANT THE RAYON ACETATE, BECAUSE IT'S GOT A THICKER, PLUSH...YOU KNOW, THE FIBERS ARE PLUSH, SO IT MAKES IT A LOT NICER TO STAMP ON, AND IT'S VERY EASY TO DO. >> AND THAT'S WHAT THIS IS. THIS IS RAYON ACETATE. >> THAT'S WHAT THIS IS. YEP. >> YEAH, IT'S THICKER. >> AND WHAT YOU DO IS, I GIVE IT A...GIVE IT A LITTLE SQUIRT. NOW THERE'S--YOU KNOW, EVERYBODY HAS THEIR OWN TECHNIQUE OR WAY OF DOING THINGS. A LOT OF TIMES PEOPLE WILL SAY, YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE GOING TO VELVET STAMP, LAY YOUR STAMP DOWN, PUT YOUR FABRIC ON TOP. OKAY, THAT'S A GREAT WAY TO DO IT, BUT FOR ME, I LIKE TO SPRAY IT WITH MY WATER FIRST, AND THEN I PUT MY STAMP DOWN THIS WAY, AND THEN I PICK IT UP AND HOLD IT LIKE THIS, SO THEN I CAN SEE WHERE-- >> EXACTLY WHERE IT IS. >> IT DOESN'T MATTER ON THE FIRST ONE, BUT WHEN YOU'RE ADDING MORE AND MORE DETAIL, YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU DON'T RUN INTO THINGS, SO YOU TAKE YOUR IRON. >> IT'S JUST A DRY IRON? >> IT'S A DRY IRON. YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT IF IT HAS HOLES TO AVOID THE HOLES COMPLETELY, OR USE AN IRON THAT DOESN'T HAVE HOLES. >> OH, I JUST NOTICED THAT. THERE'S NO STEAM HOLES. >> NOPE, NO STEAM HOLES. >> AND YOU DON'T WANT THOSE. >> AND THEN WHAT YOU DO AGAIN IS JUST GIVE IT A QUICK LITTLE SPRITZ. >> UH-HUH. >> AND THEN LAY IT DOWN, AND THEN YOU HOLD IT IN PLACE FOR ABOUT 3 TO 5 SECONDS. DON'T ROCK IT AND DON'T RUB IT. >> NO. OKAY. >> YOU JUST WANT TO GO DOWN AND UP. >> OKAY. >> STRAIGHT DOWN AND THEN STRAIGHT UP. >> LIKE WHEN YOU ADHERE FUSIBLE, YOU DON'T WANT TO IRON IT. YOU'RE JUST PUTTING IT DOWN AND HOLDING IT. >> YES, BECAUSE IF YOU'RE DOING THIS ON IT, YOU'RE GOING TO RUB YOUR DESIGN, AND THEN YOU'RE NOT GOING TO HAVE A CLEAR DESIGN. SO THEN WHEN YOU'RE DONE... >> OH, MY GOSH, HOW PRETTY. >> THIS IS WHAT YOU GET. >> OH, I HOPE WE CAN SHOW THAT, BECAUSE THAT IS JUST BEAUTIFUL ON THERE. OH, YEAH, WE CAN SEE IT NOW. >> YOU SEE IT? >> AND WE COULDN'T EVEN SEE ANYTHING ON THE GREEN. YOU COULD TELL. >> IT'S THE TOTAL DIFFERENCE IN THE VELVET. YOU REALLY NEED TO HAVE THE RAYON ACETATE. >> SO YOU WOULD PUT AS MANY OR AS FEW--IT COULD JUST BE ONE, OR IT COULD BE A WHOLE PATTERN. >> AND AGAIN, IF YOU'RE A LITTLE NERVOUS ABOUT WORKING WITH FABRIC LIKE I USED TO BE, STAMP YOUR PATTERN OUT ON A PIECE OF PAPER FIRST, AND THEN YOU CAN USE THAT AS A GUIDE. >> GET YOUR DESIGN FIGURED OUT. >> GET YOUR DESIGN OUT ON A PIECE OF PAPER, AND THEN JUST GO AHEAD AN DEAL WITH YOUR FABRIC. YEAH, THERE YOU GO. >> AND SINCE THE OTHER ONE WAS ALREADY EMBELLISHED, THIS ONE, WE CAN SEE EXACTLY HOW MANY OF THE STAMPS THAT YOU PRESSED ON AND THAT THEY'RE KIND OF IN A ROW. VERY PRETTY. >> YEAH, AND THEN ALLS YOU DO IS YOU TAKE YOUR VELVET, AND YOU GLUE IT ON. I USE BEACON ADHESIVES, THEIR FABRI-TAC GLUE. GLUE IT ON THE BACK, AND THEN YOU GLUE IT ON YOUR ALBUM FRONT LIKE THIS. >> AND THEN LET'S LOOK AT ALL THE DIFFERENT EMBELLISHMENTS THAT YOU PUT ON IT. >> AND THEN YOU JUST START ADDING YOUR EMBELLISHMENTS. >> THIS IS THE REALLY FUN PART, ISN'T IT? >> YES. YES. >> AND THIS COMES LIKE THIS? >> THIS COMES LIKE THIS, YES. YOU CAN BUY IT LIKE THIS OUT OF THE STORE. THE ONLY THING THAT, YOU KNOW, YOU NEED TO DO AT HOME IS THE SAYING. I DID IT ON A COMPUTER, YOU KNOW, WITH A COMPUTER FONT, AND THEN I JUST ADDED THE FRAME ON TOP OF IT. >> OH, I SEE. >> AND I JUST USED MY FABRIC-- FABRI-TAC, AND I JUST GLUED EVERYTHING ON, AND YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL GIFT. >> AND WHAT A NICE WAY TO USE UP--YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES WE'LL HAVE ONE FLOWER LEFT, OR WE'LL HAVE TWO LEAVES LEFT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, OR JUST A PIECE OF THIS, WHICH IS JUST PERFECT FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS PROJECT. WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHOWING--I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT STAMPING FABRIC, ESPECIALLY VELVET. >> ON VELVET, YEP. >> WELL, IT'S REALLY BEAUTIFUL. THANK YOU, LISA. >> YOU'RE WELCOME. THANK YOU. >> I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SHOW TODAY. NEXT TIME, ON "CREATIVE LIVING," WE'LL LEARN HOW TO TEACH CHILDREN ABOUT PETS, SHOW HOW TO MAKE AN ELEGANT RUFFLE CAKE, AND WE'LL DEMONSTRATE MAKING A TABLE RUNNER. ONE OF MY NEXT GUESTS BELIEVES ALL CHILDREN SHOULD BE TAUGHT HUMANE EDUCATION, AND IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY TO START.
