kmrhodes: Suppsed to be delivered - bought them from the Little League boys
shargoose left the room
shargoose joined the room
shargoose: Whoops
faye_shelton: Velcro the butt, Sharon
shargoose: Sorry, don't know what happened
faye_shelton: Yahoo happened, most likely
shargoose: Tell that to the puter!!
kmrhodes: LOLOLOLOL
shargoose: What are we doing?
faye_shelton: I just got here a split hair before you did
shargoose: OK
shargoose: Looks like a pinch pot
sylsnovelties: NJ is making a pinch pot out of the leaf cane
shargoose: I thoought NJ was going out today to a museum?
faye_shelton: pretty one
kmrhodes: so cool
faye_shelton: yep, I thought so too. surprised to see her here
shargoose: Love that chevron cane!!
auntyalias: it's a hand blend
shargoose: Very pretty
kmrhodes: A true clayer has clay under her nails
auntyalias: has variation because it's not blended to death with the pasta machine
auntyalias: LOL
auntyalias: ya, I gave up trying to keep them clay free
faye_shelton: i love it
shargoose: So true
shargoose: I've got dirt under mine from plantin
shargoose: Will have to clean them before claying
kmrhodes: I won't even talk about mine
faye_shelton: cabbage
shargoose: Oh is that a little cabbage?
auntyalias: when reduced to mini it makes a cabbage sort of thing
shargoose: Great minds
faye_shelton: nice
auntyalias: If I had the colors lighter it would be lettuce, but it's cabbage
kmrhodes: Ohhhh, subs are here
patab12000: I plan to get a manacure at least twice a year if I need it or noe
shargoose: Those are so cute NJ
auntyalias: Now we'll review this hand blend unless there's a request for something else
shargoose: I'd like to see the blend
faye_shelton: me too
frogger70301: hey, my zebra looks good as a pot!
auntyalias: for those who plan to travel, learn to blend by hand
auntyalias: All animal blends make good pots
frogger70301: oh, wow.
auntyalias: still needs sanding and finishing
auntyalias: so the mica shows
auntyalias: doing the wedge pot trick
frogger70301: I think I'm gonna have to redo my leopard cane.
faye_shelton: i like that trick
faye_shelton: i'm killin my Sister with pinchpots
kmrhodes: Very nice NJ
frogger70301: heehee
auntyalias: thank you very much now all y'all go do some of these easy breezy pots
auntyalias: pinch pots have been the bane of the list since the beginning
auntyalias: people pulling out their hair over pinch pots
auntyalias: but these pots made with leaf and flower petal shapes
auntyalias: are just too fun and funky
auntyalias: easy too
frogger70301: Does making the neck on them get any easier?
auntyalias: Yes especially if you use a leaf shape like the tiger cane here
auntyalias: it was already small
auntyalias: think of an orange peeled in 6 cut sections
auntyalias: what would those sections look like
auntyalias: you know that shape, we've all put orange slices in our mouth and smiled goofily for a friend
auntyalias: so we know the shape
auntyalias: if it covers an orange
auntyalias: it's a good shape to build a pinch pot
auntyalias: all you got to do is hook up the seams
auntyalias: and it's nearly round
auntyalias: bowl out the flat areas and round everthing out
auntyalias: and you're done
auntyalias: work from the center bottom and move up
auntyalias: the neck is simplified because it is already narrow
auntyalias: see?
faye_shelton: yep
shargoose: good idea
frogger70301: That must be what I did wrong. I put the points together at the bottom.
auntyalias: Shall we do roll call?
auntyalias: NoraJean, San Francisco
frogger70301: Mitch, Louisiana.
shargoose: Sharon V NH
faye_shelton: Faye, Norfolk VA
kmrhodes: Karen, Gettysburg, PA
sylsnovelties: Syl, Gallup, NM
jude: jude, Tehachapi, CA
patab12000: patricia HouTX
auntyalias: that's nearly everybody, Nancy must be away from the keyboard
auntyalias: ok, Short Order Request Time
auntyalias: we can continue on this hand blend leaf trick
auntyalias: or we can do something different
auntyalias: I'm going to save log here and you all discuss your preferences
kmrhodes: whatever tickles your fancy

shargoose: I'd like the leaf if no one minds
faye_shelton: ok by me
kmrhodes: ok
shargoose: I clayed last time
shargoose: So didn't get many pics
shargoose: this time I'm going to get more
shargoose: I've decided I need four hands and two sets of wyes for the domos
sylsnovelties: Can I ask a quick question?
shargoose: Yes
sylsnovelties: What mix do you use for brown?
kmrhodes: sure
shargoose: Red, smidge yellow and green
kmrhodes: burnt umber
shargoose: or blue
shargoose: You can buy brown
faye_shelton: primaries should pretty much make brown
faye_shelton: and vary the amounts depending on what brown you want
auntyalias: I got a color card tute for brown
sylsnovelties: I don't have the cash to buy any and want to do a mix. Thanks for the mix colors!!
auntyalias: since it's a reoccurring question
kmrhodes: brb
sylsnovelties: Thanks NJ
faye_shelton: sometimes I add a little copper or gold to glow it up a bit, too
auntyalias: back, so what's the decision, review the hand blend and chevron flipped jelly roll leaf?
faye_shelton: for the mica
auntyalias: Love the Mica
auntyalias: yum
faye_shelton: me 2
faye_shelton: yep, the leaf
shargoose: Yes please
auntyalias: okie dokie
sylsnovelties: Since I have screen shots already, I won't take more.
auntyalias: exactly Syl
shargoose: Is that Yellow, green and blue/
sylsnovelties: Yup, that is what NJ used
shargoose: K
auntyalias: one half zinc yellow and cobalt blue for basic green
sylsnovelties: She blended the green
auntyalias: then mix basic green with equal portion of cobalt blue for a blue-green
auntyalias: then a sheet of yellow
shargoose: OK
auntyalias: with the seams are diagonal like this the blend will happen there
auntyalias: if we were just folding it in half
auntyalias: and putting it through the press
auntyalias: but we're going to fold this in half
auntyalias: then roll it like a cigar
auntyalias: then mash it so it's a fat ribbon
auntyalias: then twist that ribbon
auntyalias: then compress that twist
auntyalias: and pull out a sheet
auntyalias: all by hand
auntyalias: and it goes like this
sylsnovelties: NJ, the first time you showed me how to do a blend, I wrote down the steps. I wrote down. roll, twist, smoosh. heeheehee
auntyalias: lol
jude: Smoosh is a good word.
jude: Clay abuse.
sylsnovelties: It's very technical.
auntyalias: now we do it again
frogger70301: gotta head out. gotta make a trip to the store.
faye_shelton: byebye, Mitch
frogger70301: Have fun all, and thnx NJ.
frogger70301: bye.

kmrhodes: very cool NJ
auntyalias: Two leaf shapes
auntyalias: and a half
auntyalias: make a pitcher
auntyalias: reduce the leaves you make, and repeat them
auntyalias: you'll get designs that are in scale for mini
auntyalias: also
auntyalias: what I wanted to show
auntyalias: is I didn't use any tools other than the blade
auntyalias: to cut the sections, slice the cane
auntyalias: the blending, and forming pots and pitchers were done without tools
auntyalias: and with nails too long
kmrhodes: you might have used your nails to cut the clay with! LOL
auntyalias: LOL ya
auntyalias: but I think that sometimes folks feel bad if they don't have a pasta press
kmrhodes: who need blades when they have 2" nails
auntyalias: or can't afford clayshapers
auntyalias: we got to explore the part of clay and minis with only a blade, for it can be done
auntyalias: my coffee went cold, I'm going to save log, heat coffee and be back in about 10 minutes

kmrhodes: I started with just a needle stuck in a piece of wood
kmrhodes: a cut off safety pin
