Fearless Leader:Biz-Archive/Faux/Malachite/2002-002.htm
Fearless Leader: this are the cut out circles
Fearless Leader: that will be made into bowls of different sizes
Fearless Leader: those bowls are stacked
Fearless Leader: when you get to the smallest bowl
Fearless Leader: stick a plug in it
Fearless Leader: then reduce that stack of bowls to a cone shaped log
Fearless Leader: any questions before I go do this?
merrie60us: no
teri56: no
lindaslists: no
Fearless Leader: 4's a majority
Fearless Leader: so I move on
merrie60us: it is very clear when nj does it...
Fearless Leader: this stack is thick
merrie60us: I saw her do it for something else last week
Fearless Leader: so the circle cutters are just making marks
Fearless Leader: I'll cut it with an exacto knife
Fearless Leader: and I'm not worried about being neat or exact
Fearless Leader: this is the barbarian method
Fearless Leader: ok?
merrie60us: ok
frogger70301: k
Fearless Leader: so the stack was big enough for 3 impressions of all
five circle cutters
Fearless Leader: now for the boring part of cutting out all these
circles, making bowls and stacking them
merrie60us: making stacks large, med,small one of each per stack
NikiT (azstitcher2001) joined the room
merrie60us: laying out each size
frogger70301: shaping into bowls.
Fearless Leader: Dag, you don't need to be exact when cutting out
these circles
frogger70301: stacking the bowls.
merrie60us: stacking each into each other
Fearless Leader: folks get all caught up in being exact
Fearless Leader: we don't need to be exact all the time
Fearless Leader: a sort of circle is fine
Fearless Leader: a funky circle is fine
merrie60us: small cirlce is the plug?
Fearless Leader: a funky bowl is fine
Fearless Leader: yes Merrie, that's a little plug for the smallest
Fearless Leader: now I'll stack the other bowls
Fearless Leader: any questions before I reduce these to cones?
merrie60us: no
teri56: no
frogger70301: I'm good.

Fearless Leader: fyi
Fearless Leader: now I go to reduce
Fearless Leader: FIST OF DOOM
merrie60us: squeezing
frogger70301: squeezing the stacked bowls.
merrie60us: using whole hand
frogger70301: keeping the cone shape.
frogger70301: stretching it out.
merrie60us: squeezing next one
Fearless Leader: ok
Fearless Leader: now I'll stack these but invert the middle one
Fearless Leader: see
merrie60us: stacking standing them up
Fearless Leader: and laying this down
merrie60us: point up, point down, point up
Fearless Leader: make a pyramid
merrie60us: then laid down
Fearless Leader: cut this pile in half at the center
Fearless Leader: now for the reducing part
lindaslists: stack the 2 halves side by side and compress
Fearless Leader: to keep the ends from caving in fuss with them when
they balloon out
Fearless Leader: or let them bulge and have interesting chop
Fearless Leader: squeese the middle of the cane and hold with both
hands and pull in opposite directions, pull like a taffy pull
frogger70301: took some slices and put them on a sheet and passed
through the pm.
