Fearless Leader: now to reduce again...Oh Eva, explain how you
understand this
bonsaikathy: NJ did you see my last post
Fearless Leader: Let me fix that Kathy, my bad
bonsaikathy: thanks
buci131: I wasn't sure what you meant initially about putting the
pearl together
buci131: after ribbon folding it
buci131: so I see with the pearl in the middle you get the shading on
the outside
buci131: insta-shadow
Fearless Leader: Thanks Kathy, just spaced on it
buci131: no lighting necessary
Fearless Leader: Yes Eva that's right
bonsaikathy: welcome
kmrhodes: gotta take puppy for her walk - be back later
Fearless Leader: for mini scenes don't have the right lighting even
for real metal
bonsaikathy: bye Karen
buci131: later Karen
Fearless Leader: see ya Karen
Fearless Leader: now we can use this highlight and shadow trick with
other colors
kmrhodes left the room
Fearless Leader: anything you're doing, dark green to light green to
Fearless Leader: for a leaf cell that has a highlight and shadow built
buci131: lots of potential with that
Fearless Leader: let's reduce this and cut some pieces out and I'll
show you how it make a flat slice looked CURVED
Fearless Leader: it's just too trippy
Fearless Leader: ready?
buci131: yep
daytonlinda: yes
bonsaikathy: can't wait
buci131: She's showing the end of the cane
buci131: and now she's reducing part of it even more
Fearless Leader: when you reduce, you don't have to reduce the whole
Fearless Leader: it gets crazy, hard to handle
Fearless Leader: reduce one end and work with that
Fearless Leader: also, if you reduce the whole thing like this and
then change your mind and want larger versions you're screwed
Fearless Leader: already reduced
Fearless Leader: ok?
buci131: ok
bonsaikathy: ok
buci131: what did I miss?
buci131: I see a flat sheet of black
bonsaikathy: I was wondering the same thing
buci131: and now she's slicing the cane on the small end
bonsaikathy: bet she's going to put the slices on the black sheet
bonsaikathy: yup, that's it
buci131: and doing just what Kathy said--putting slices on the black
daytonlinda: oh my goodness!
buci131: OK I missed it (child stuff)
buci131: cool--thanks!
buci131: now she's slicing the cane again--looks like the larger size
buci131: side
bonsaikathy: Each time she's put it up for us to see, I"ve missed
getting a good shot, it gets blurry before I can snap it
buci131: and placing those slices on the same black sheet in a diff
buci131: I haven't been able to get a good one of the sheet up close
yet either
buci131: I got one--a little blurry but you can tell the light/shadow
things pretty well I think
Fearless Leader: did you get the close up on that?
Fearless Leader: or should I hold it there a bit longer? Tell me when
you got a good shot
jyladams: did she put the slices on the black sheet on their sides?
not face down?
buci131: No Jyl (is that right?), she put them face down
bonsaikathy: did the cam quit, it stopped moving on my screen
buci131: nope it's still working
buci131: I'm not getting a clear shot right now
buci131: I got two previous that were clearer than this one NJ
misty222bagwell joined the room
buci131: Hiya Misty--you made it!
jyladams: Jyl is right, but it looks like the outer edge that I am
seeing right now
misty222bagwell: Hi
misty222bagwell: Yea
buci131: the outer edge of what?
nor4man93553 joined the room
bonsaikathy: I got a shot but it's not the clearest
jyladams: of the sliced circles
faye_shelton joined the room
Fearless Leader: there
jyladams: what are the silver rings that I am see ing now?
daytonlinda: they are flat slices but look 3D
Fearless Leader: flat slices
bonsaikathy: I think I got a good one NJ
buci131: I took that one NJ--I think it will work.
jyladams: they are oblong, not circles?
buci131: BRB--baby stuff
Fearless Leader: ok Eva
bonsaikathy: for some reason it froze up on me for a minute, but got
it now
buci131: false alarm, heheh
buci131: OK we've got the flat sheet and
Fearless Leader: Ok
buci131: the cane and a couple of other things I don't get
Fearless Leader: What we have here
Fearless Leader: is the cross section of the cane
Fearless Leader: the end cut on top of the cane
buci131: ah
Fearless Leader: and the flat sheet
Fearless Leader: when you build in a highlight with blending in pearl
Fearless Leader: and you build a shadow by blending in black
Fearless Leader: and put the silver in the middle
Fearless Leader: reduce the cane so pearl, silver and black are
Fearless Leader: cut in half
Fearless Leader: then put the pearl sides together
Fearless Leader: so the pearl is the highlight in the middle
misty222bagwell: I can't see what you guys are doing
Fearless Leader: the black is the shadow on the outsides
An Invitation to view your Webcam was sent to misty222bagwell (1/21/03
2:25 PM)
Fearless Leader: Just sent you an invite to see the cam Misty
Fearless Leader: there ya go
Fearless Leader: ok, I'm going to do this again
Fearless Leader: but the effect is a ring or curved metal bit when the
slice is FLAT
Fearless Leader: because we built in the highlight
Fearless Leader: we built in the shadow with the blends
daytonlinda: why did you fold it instead of rolling?
jyladams: You are TOO good at this, It dows look round - not flat!
Fearless Leader: Linda, you mean the ribbon, why do I fan fold it?
daytonlinda: yes
Fearless Leader: if we rolled it we'd get a metal stud, round black on
the outside and the highlight in the middle
Fearless Leader: it's good for a lot of different uses
daytonlinda: i am slow today, sorry!
buci131: I thought it was a good question
Fearless Leader: there's the blend with it done as a jelly roll
Fearless Leader: with the pearl in the middle
buci131: heehee--yep I did the slap on the forehead, too Linda
Fearless Leader: it's not a dumb question, it's a good question
Fearless Leader: that's it with the pearl in the center
Fearless Leader: surrounded by black,
buci131: That's very cool looking
daytonlinda: looks dimensional as well
buci131: Oooh--what's that?
buci131: looks like a flattened Nestle's Cookies and Cream bar
Fearless Leader: that's it with the black in the center and done as a
lace cand done as a wedge, wedges put together like a citrus and then
a bowl shape made of it
nor4man93553: wow that's great
buci131: cut in a circle
bonsaikathy: wow, now that would make a great inside of a shell
frogger70301: So, we could use this to make a basketweave sort of,
too, right? Just change the colors.
faye_shelton: or an exotic mushroom. Hi everyone.
buci131: Hiya Faye
bonsaikathy: Hi Faye
Fearless Leader: Biz-Archive/Canes/HandBlend/002.htm

There's teh close up on that page
Fearless Leader: My typos are getting past me because I'm moving too
fast in time and space
buci131: Just try not to catch up with your future self
Fearless Leader: I'll tell ya, anyway for the Claymates who just
showed up
Fearless Leader: check out the hand blend pages
Fearless Leader: and know you can get nice effects without the pasta
misty222bagwell: how do you guys get it so smooth/
Fearless Leader: I'm going to make another three color blend and do
this again so you know how it's done.
Fearless Leader: Misty, get what so smooth?
misty222bagwell: your clay
Fearless Leader: one way is to only hold on to a sheet going through
the pasta press on the edge
frogger70301 left the room
Fearless Leader: when you get two edges together smooth with a
misty222bagwell: don't have a pasta press
Fearless Leader: then you can still do blends
Fearless Leader: Biz-Archive/Canes/HandBlend/Group.htm
Fearless Leader: there ya are, all the stuff I did on the Hand Blend
page were done this way
Fearless Leader: if there's no questions I'll go and do the cane again
misty222bagwell: Got any tips for detail?
buci131: who's Carolyn?
frogger70301 joined the room
Fearless Leader: I don't think I understand your question Misty
Fearless Leader: Isn't Nor4man Carolyn in Oregon?
buci131: Oh, I thought that was Cheryl D
buci131: Oops
nor4man93553: no it's Cheryl D
Fearless Leader: or do I have Old Timer's Disease?

misty222bagwell: I'm kind of doing two projects at once here
Fearless Leader: Oh I do have Old Timer's Disease, HI CHERYLD

Fearless Leader: LOL
bonsaikathy: Hi Cheryl
nor4man93553: Hi everyone
buci131: Now she's taking the ends from her silver to black cane
misty222bagwell: My dragon is having a little bit of face trouble
Fearless Leader: ok do you want me to do this in silver, black and
Fearless Leader: or gold and pearl and a bit of burnt umber?
buci131: my vote is for the second set of colors
misty222bagwell: gold,....
bonsaikathy: mine too
nor4man93553: I vote the second as well
misty222bagwell: my vote
Fearless Leader: We'll go GOLD
daytonlinda: go for the gold:)
Fearless Leader: GOLD FINGER....
Fearless Leader: LOL
Fearless Leader: ok let me pull out the colors
daytonlinda: i wonder how much of the effect will be lost if i try to
run these through the pasta press to make them all the same height?
buci131: run what thru LInda?
daytonlinda: the slices
buci131: Do you have your webcam on too?
bonsaikathy: it will stretch some out
Fearless Leader: those are the colors we're going to use in this next
three color blend
bonsaikathy: the ones that are higher will get stretched
buci131: I bet it won't lose much of the effect at all--just change it
a little--depending on which way you run it thru
Fearless Leader: I'll save log at this point since we're doing a new
