Fearless Leader: a bad quilt cane
Fearless Leader: look nice as a chop
ladytex49 screams, "They killed kenny!"

Fearless Leader: mixing a lot of cane bits
ladytex49: I live a very sheltered life I guess...
chenoa_2b: Nora Jean, I like the colors you use in the chops. Mine are different. I don't know what it is, but yours just have something
Fearless Leader: that are related in color family
snooks2312: an adult cartoon
Fearless Leader: like this one in purple
Fearless Leader: when made into beads
chelyha: NJ you just pack yours together, and don't roll and twist it, right?
chelyha: Gives a different look
Fearless Leader: no twist
Fearless Leader: that gives lines
buci131: If you roll and twist it will make lines
Fearless Leader: we want our cane designs to show in every bit of chop
chelyha: how do you keep the air bubbles out?
Fearless Leader: don't pull the chop log either
Fearless Leader: compress
Fearless Leader: from the middle
Fearless Leader: and work out to the edges
Fearless Leader: here
chelyha: well mine do, it depends on how much you twist
Fearless Leader: let's show the new folks
Fearless Leader: what a handful of chop looks like
chelyha: I know you know who taught me to do mine, and she twists hers
chelyha: but I like the look of it not twisted
merrie60us: showing chop
merrie60us: looks like a pile of garbage
Fearless Leader: yes
Fearless Leader: take cane
Fearless Leader: put it in a food processor
Fearless Leader: for soft lines
Fearless Leader: it gets rounded
chenoa_2b: Justs saved log. Gotta take a break. Hurting to much! BRB
Fearless Leader: if you slice up your canes
Fearless Leader: with a razor
kmrhodes: or the new tool I have
Fearless Leader: you'll get sharp
Fearless Leader: edges
Fearless Leader: and a different look
merrie60us: maybe heat from processor helps also?
chelyha: what new tool?
Fearless Leader: if you have complex canes
ladytex49 asks buci131 "Do you Yahoo?"
Fearless Leader: you'll have complex chop
Fearless Leader: let's take this log here and make a natasha bead
kmrhodes: Nj - you could use that 5 blade tool
kmrhodes: to chop up clay if you
Fearless Leader: naw, let's take a handful of this chop
chelyha: what new tool, Karen?
Fearless Leader: and make a log
kmrhodes: didn't have a processer
jakmiami left the room
kmrhodes: the 5 blade multicutter shown there
Fearless Leader: that tool
merrie60us: using five blade new tool
Fearless Leader: ok
buci131: is that tool deep enough to do a good chop?
chelyha: ooh looks interesting
dahs512: fredie on whels
Fearless Leader: I'm going to tell you what I'm going to do
Fearless Leader: then I'm going to do it
Fearless Leader: then I'll stop and take questions
Fearless Leader: ok?
Fearless Leader: I'm going to take a handful of this chop
Fearless Leader: and compress the air out only
Fearless Leader: no reduction
Fearless Leader: no pulling or twisting
Fearless Leader: just compress the air out
Fearless Leader: and then I'll slice off a log
Fearless Leader: and that log will be cut three times
Fearless Leader: once in half
Fearless Leader: then each side in half again
Fearless Leader: for four peices
Fearless Leader: each side when cut
Fearless Leader: is opened
Fearless Leader: like a book
Fearless Leader: for the mirror images
Fearless Leader: when they are placed back to back
Fearless Leader: the other two mirror images will be revealed
Fearless Leader: I'll stop at that point
Fearless Leader: are there any questions?
snooks2312: nope, ok here
chelyha: none here
ladytex49 hiccups and then searches for a glass of water
kmrhodes: I'm ready to roll
buci131: not from me
merrie60us: compressing clay
buci131: ok so, she's compressing into a block
Fearless Leader: roll from the edges inward
Fearless Leader: from all directions
Fearless Leader: so you don't stretch it
Fearless Leader: just smooth the sides
ladytex49: I guess that sort of makes it a one of a kind thing huh..I mean it would be awfully hard to duplicate that...
merrie60us: takes rolling pini
buci131: yep, Loretta
jakmiami joined the room
merrie60us: can't type tonight
merrie60us: rolling edges?
ladytex49: neither can I but I dont let that stop me..
ladytex49: type I mean...

buci131: brb--got one of those stupid large errors from an ad not working right
buci131 left the room
buci131 joined the room
buci131: ok, back
buci131: so she's smoothed the chop\
merrie60us: cutting down center
buci131: now she's cutting the block in half
merrie60us: with tissue blade
merrie60us: opening like book
merrie60us: see mirror images
chenoa_2b: looks like a bulldog
merrie60us: now, take two pieces lay flat on table
buci131: that's my fave part--that's the part I could do all night
ladytex49: looks liek what the phychiatris tell ya to say what first comes to your mind...
buci131: that's part of the charm of these things--everyone sees something diff
merrie60us: then cuts two pieces in half lenthwise again
buci131: cutting the halves in half
merrie60us: so now have four pieces
snooks2312: looks like a cool moth
merrie60us: take them and put together in mirror image
snooks2312: or an angel
ladytex49: an alien...
buci131: angry Fido
merrie60us: now what is she doing
buci131: she's putting the two pieces she just made back to back
snooks2312: putting the four mirroe images togethr
merrie60us: what do you mean back to back
Fearless Leader: watch
Fearless Leader: cut a block in half
Fearless Leader: cut those two pieces in half
Fearless Leader: each side
Fearless Leader: take two and open like a book
merrie60us: any two
Fearless Leader: left side open like a book
merrie60us: got it
ladytex49: this is amazing..
Fearless Leader: right side open like a book
Fearless Leader: then
Fearless Leader: dig
Fearless Leader: put them back to back
Fearless Leader: and you'll get the other two mirror images
Fearless Leader: like this
merrie60us: got it so it's like one is on top of the other
merrie60us: but back ot back
merrie60us: I understand thank you
Fearless Leader: now in another color
buci131: so the smooting seams we were talking about earlier was the seams on the mirror images, Merrie
chelyha: oh yes I just tried it here it's great
