[MUSIC PLAYING] >> "CREATIVE LIVING," UTILIZING
TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY WITH THE BEST OF THE PAST TO BRING YOU
INNOVATIVE IDEAS AND UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION FOR CREATIVE
LIFESTYLES IN TODAY'S ACTIVE WORLD. WITH YOUR HOST, SHERYL
BORDEN.
>> WELCOME TO "CREATIVE LIVING" TODAY. WE'RE GOING TO LEARN HOW
TO USE RUBBER STAMPS ON VELVET TO MAKE A PHOTO BOOK. 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. WHO KNEW YOU COULD STAMP ON ELEGANT
FABRIC WITHOUT RUINING IT?
LISA LIVES IN VICTORVILLE, CALIFORNIA, AND HER COMPANY
IS STAMPING QUEEN CREATIONS.
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.
THIS IS A PROCESS OF TEACHING RESPECT AND COMPASSION FOR
ANIMALS, HOW TO CARE FOR ANIMALS, AND HOW TO RECOGNIZE
SIGNS OF ABUSE AND NEGLECT, AND THEN HOW TO REPORT IT IN
THE PROPER MANNER.
IF YOU REALLY WANT TO IMPRESS YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS, BE SURE
TO WATCH NEXT TIME AS MY GUEST DEMONSTRATES MAKING A REGAL
RAINBOW RUFFLE CAKE.
IT ALMOST LOOKS TOO GOOD TO EAT, BUT NOT QUITE. AND, FINALLY,
A GUEST WILL DEMONSTRATE HOW TO USE THE SIMPLE CURVES TOOL AND
CREATE CURVED FABRIC PIECES, WHICH ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE WAVES
WHEN THEY'RE SEWN TOGETHER AS A TABLE RUNNER.
ALL OF THESE TOPICS WILL BE FEATURED ON THE NEXT "CREATIVE
LIVING" SHOW. IF YOU EVER HAVE COMMENTS OR SUGGESTIONS OR
IDEAS FOR SHOWS, YOU CAN E-MAIL ME AT SHERYL.BORDEN@ENMU.EDU.
I'D ALSO LIKE TO ASK YOU TO BECOME A FAN OF "CREATIVE
