Fearless Leader: I'm back and burping
kmrhodes: I ate a popcorn ball
Fearless Leader: what's up?
teri56: whatcha burping, NJ?
bonsaikathy: I haven't had a popcorn ball in years
kmrhodes: now I'm trying to get the kernels out of my teeth
sew_short: Reminds me of the DOD colors and/or african american robes
swaphappy2000: cleaned up the living room from my over active
bonsaikathy: that's true it does
Fearless Leader: Oh I ordered Chinese food. Roast Duck, beef and
broccili, pot stickers and fried prawns, veggie delight, fried rice
and chow mein, I'm not cooking for days
Fearless Leader: I'm going to clay until I hurt myself
bonsaikathy: haha, sounds like it
swaphappy2000: I am so jealous! I want some good chinese!
Fearless Leader: who's ready for a folded cane?
Fearless Leader: we'll do Chinese food in miniature
swaphappy2000: Meeeee meeeeee
kmrhodes: go girl
Fearless Leader: ok, taking that stack of Tongues of Fire
Fearless Leader: air bubble
Fearless Leader: just slice them and burp out the air
Fearless Leader: when you got a seam
Fearless Leader: like I cut the air bubble
Fearless Leader: the way to heal the seam is to jiggle it
dahs512 left the room
Fearless Leader: side to side real fast
dahs512 joined the room
Fearless Leader: slicing off a length of that stack I'm going to pinch
and pull it to be longer and thinner than it is now
Fearless Leader: here's a snake
Fearless Leader: I'm not putting it in like that
Fearless Leader: could
Fearless Leader: if I wanted a bullseye with a lot of rings, but
that's another cane
Fearless Leader: I'm going to fold it like you fold a paper fan
Fearless Leader: at every fold I'll lay a length of this red skane
Fearless Leader: snake
Fearless Leader: even
Fearless Leader: I'm going to do the red against the white
Fearless Leader: for I fear the red will be lost if I fold it next to
the black side
Fearless Leader: I want a drastic dot
Fearless Leader: let me show ya
sew_short: NJ is rolling out her snake longer and thinner
Fearless Leader: I'll do a white snake on the black fold, see what
sew_short: Now she is starting to fan fold the stack and adding a
slice of the snake, cutting snake
Fearless Leader: I have no plan that's specific
sew_short: She is now rolling out a white snake to add to the black
side of the fan fold
sew_short: Foling back and adding red snake
sew_short: Fold and add red snake - back and forth until stack is used
sew_short: Reminds me of that fan folder hard Christmas candy
sew_short: Now she is pinching one side of the fan folded stack making
the similar to a heart with three of four tops
sew_short: Yes, reducing. She squeezes the cane in the middle and
pulls it like taffy
sew_short: NJ is slicing of pieces of the cane and putting them side
sew_short: Slicing off more pieces of the cane
sew_short: and joining them side to side --- oops now I am lost
sew_short: Halp me Halp me someone
bonsaikathy: she just made the bud in the middle and will put petals
Fearless Leader: I'll take questions now before I form this flower
Fearless Leader: no questions?
Fearless Leader: okie dokie
dahs512: I'm good
bonsaikathy: next break NJ, if you'll give me the epson site again
I'll start sending in the pics for you
kmrhodes: how many pics do yo have
Fearless Leader: okie dokie Kathy
sew_short: NJ is forming the petals around the bud of the flower
sew_short: Turns her "skewer" that is wedged into some clay for
sew_short: Add a petal, turns and add another petal
dahs512: I like the way the petals are frillier looking
dahs512: she didn't add the petals opposite this time
bonsaikathy: sorry Karen, had to step away to start the fire
sew_short: Looks like lots and lots of little petals rather than just
a few. It's really cute
swaphappy2000: I really like this one!
dahs512: She is overlapping each per\vious petal slightly
bonsaikathy: I have a lot of them, I take them every few minutes when
ever she shows something good
kmrhodes: okay, was just wondering
dahs512: she bent the petals back slightly
swaphappy2000: that is beautiful!
kmrhodes: that is just so cool!
Fearless Leader: Miniaturists...think fans
Fearless Leader: for the Lady's table
Fearless Leader: easy breezy
swaphappy2000: how do you cook these?
sew_short: NJ is showing the comparison of the cane before and after
swaphappy2000: do you take the rod out first?
Fearless Leader: I'm slapping these flowers on the Jar
swaphappy2000: did you make the face on the jar too?
swaphappy2000: I would really like to see that one done!!!!
swaphappy2000: Are they cooked before putting them on the jar?
swaphappy2000: I guess not. LOL
kmrhodes left the room
sew_short: No, you can bake them on the jar. Or I would lay it on some
polyfill fluffy stuff and bake
swaphappy2000: what about the face?
swaphappy2000: did NJ make that?
sew_short: You can put some on the jar - bake it - then add more and
bonsaikathy: I'm sure she did
swaphappy2000: rebaking? will that burn it?
sew_short: Yes that is one of NJ's faces she made and cured (baked) -
then made a mold of it.
Fearless Leader: ok...questions
bonsaikathy: not here
swaphappy2000: Beautiful work NJ. Very impressed.

swaphappy2000: Very Cool.
Fearless Leader: there were three levels of complexity with the canes
Fearless Leader: chopping them up and layering them
Fearless Leader: you can get a middle bead area that has designs every
Fearless Leader: use the thick trim for the outside, and get more and
more complex designs chopped for the center
Fearless Leader: layer like an oreo cookie
