lindaslists: gotta go get something to eat to was down a pill. BRB
Fearless Leader: ok
Fearless Leader: some of this gold is crumbly
Fearless Leader: so I'm mixing new gold clay with it
Fearless Leader: to make it more flexible
Fearless Leader: that's one way to deal with crumbly clay
Fearless Leader: see how crumbly it is?
Fearless Leader: when I roll it with new clay a couple of times it'll
be alright
frogger70301: Would it hurt tomix it with trans. in a pinch?
lindaslists: Back, and doing the same with my silver
lindaslists: Good news, the little red snack pack containers for
pringles are a number 5. I can use them with my clay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
lindaslists: I usually mix trans in dry clay
chenoa_2b joined the room
chenoa_2b: Whats going on?
lindaslists: NJ is doing a mokume gane tut with metalics
lindaslists: using the malachite method
chenoa_2b: Thanks
lindaslists: gold, silver, copper, black and pearl
lindaslists: I'm going to add a sheet of trans also
frogger70301: Ok, she's laid a sheet of each color out and is
arranging different sized cutters.
Fearless Leader: ok, who's doing screen shots and who's doing log
Fearless Leader: now that I've done the sheets
frogger70301: I don't know if I can be trusted with the screen shots
for this one.
Fearless Leader: any volunteers?
Fearless Leader: I can't do the screen shots and do the claying at
the same time
lindaslists: I'm here, was rolling some trans to include
Fearless Leader: it slows the process to a crawl
frogger70301: If it wouldn't be for the two kids, I'd love to do it.
lindaslists: I can do shots also
lindaslists: need to grab my cutters
Fearless Leader: we also will be needing a virtual scribe to describe
what is being seen for those who can only read the logs. Ok Linda
frogger70301: I can save if that would help, Linda.
Fearless Leader: now we just need a scribe
Fearless Leader: save the logs, Mitch?
frogger70301: yeah.
frogger70301: I don't have to be here every sec for that.
lindaslists: That would help loads as I am also making this at the
same time - LOL
frogger70301: IF Linda needs some help.
Fearless Leader: ok, so we got screen shots with Linda Borhn and you
got log saves, now we just need everyone to give effort to typing
when I am claying
Fearless Leader: ok?
Fearless Leader: We are all hosts here not guests
Fearless Leader: even the slow typers can ask questions
frogger70301: I'll try, but I'm not too good at typing fast.
chenoa_2b: Ok,
Fearless Leader: my back will be to the monitor when I'm claying
lindaslists: going to have to use drop cutters as I have NO circles -
Fearless Leader: I'll look back now and then to see if folks are
hollaring "STOP !"
Fearless Leader: you can draw circles and cut it with an exacto knife
lindaslists: Karen is getting an order today
lindaslists: OK
Fearless Leader: I end up doing that when the sheets are stacked too
chenoa_2b: Ok, so we have a sheet of pearl, gold, silver, copper, and
black. Is there a s heet of trans in there too?
Fearless Leader: ok, some of these sheets are going to be pressed
together at the thickest setting, just random choice of colors
Fearless Leader: Linda is doing some trans with hers
lindaslists: I added trans to mine
chenoa_2b: ok
Fearless Leader: I'm doing these 5 colors here of black, pearl, gold,
silver and copper
chenoa_2b: got it.
Fearless Leader: so I'm going to cut these sheets in half an take
half the pile and press the sheets together to get narrower lines
Fearless Leader: and then I'll stack the narrow lines with thicker
ones and that will be my stack
Fearless Leader: I'm not putting little balls between sheets
Fearless Leader: our cutters will make those circle shapes
Fearless Leader: ok?
