Fearless Leader: easy breezy

Fearless Leader: but my hands will be occupied

Fearless Leader: so we'd do good to have a couple of claymates saving

Fearless Leader: Yahoo being what it is

Fearless Leader: how big was it?

chenoa_2b: a hundred and some pages.

Fearless Leader: that you had to zip and not put it in an email?

Fearless Leader: if zipping is elusive

chenoa_2b: ok

Fearless Leader: I'm so easy

Fearless Leader: really

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

merrie60us: nice

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

dahs512: composte

Fearless Leader: yes

dahs512: lol

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

merrie60us: great

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

Fearless Leader: I'm going to tell you what I'm going to do

ladytex49: 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?

merrie60us: cool

merrie60us: no

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: pin

merrie60us: takes rolling pini

buci131: yep, Loretta

jakmiami joined the room

merrie60us: can't type tonight

merrie60us: rolling edges?

buci131: now she's cutting the block in half

merrie60us: with tissue blade

chenoa_2b: back

ladytex49: looks liek what the phychiatris tell ya to say what first comes to your mind...

dahs512: rorchack

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
