pdduke2003: I am NOT going to ask what????
phyllisinvegas: goota
vlady6us: u sure didEB-Blend-Grp
phyllisinvegas: run fast when you poke a steer
kitycat2222000: for sure - if you poke a cow you wear rubber gloves
clear to your armpits
vlady6us: lol

now have very clear pictures, right clicked/properties/screen
area/1024 by 768 pixels and true color (32 bit) / just thought you'd

Katie: Mine is clear, but thank-you
Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): yw
vlady6us: same here ty
chani69m: ok since I missed the fisrt part, I'm guessing she started
with a skinner blend right??
vlady6us: yes..with red and pearl
mingapunga: kathy how did you change your name, that is shown to us.
I tried it, but could manage it.
Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): file
Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): edit my screen name
pdduke2003: thank you will try! I think she does speed blur at times
Janice (jlam0401) joined the room

worked well ever since

Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): try again , if a few min.
mingapunga joined the room
Janice: Je suis bien.
Fearless Leader: Now are there any questions at this point?
pdduke2003: I love that technique
Fearless Leader: we did the blend
b_may66 joined the room
vlady6us: can see lots of potential in that
sylviedecottignies: j'en suis très heureuse
vlady6us: hi b_may
Fearless Leader: then we put snakes into the blend
Fearless Leader: any questions on blends or anything up to this point?
pdduke2003: not I
kitycat2222000: none here
chani69m: what could this be used for other than flowers??
phyllisinvegas: nope
Fearless Leader: anything you want spots in, yes
beddie0510: jlam is better in french than me - thank god
b_may66: Hello
Donna: why do you squish the blend each time, rather than just fold
Fearless Leader: if it's a spot it is a snake of clay, if it is a
line then it is a sheet of clay, if it is a blend, it is a blend...LOL
chani69m: sorry I will be full of questions, I'm very new to doing
many things with clay
kitycat2222000: I'm new too chani
Fearless Leader: I can get a blend with 6 passes on the pasta press
by twisting the clay like a wet wash cloth, if you just fold it in
half it is 24 passes.
vlady6us: thats why we are all help each other
andi..especially nora jean
pdduke2003: chani69m - what is your name?
Donna: oooh I like that!
kitycat2222000: Ms. Kitty (c
chani69m: so that is why you were twisting it, I couldn't figure out
kitycat2222000: or Carole
Fearless Leader: EB-Blend-Grp
chani69m: Andi
pdduke2003: M or F?
Fearless Leader: Now I'll reduce this cane so we can get some flower
petals off of it.
chani69m:  F
pdduke2003: gotcha!
jude: Clay abuse!
mingapunga: change the nickname wasn't available now
beddie0510: lol
phyllisinvegas: eeeeeeeeek she pounding her cane
Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): how do you keep it from getting distorted?
vlady6us: oh no..the poor cane
pdduke2003: welcome to the demo, and do not worry about a ton of
questions! I probably asked everyone of them already
vlady6us: lol pauline
chani69m: so you don't just roll the clay out?
vlady6us: now she is trying to choke it to death
phyllisinvegas: lol
mingapunga: lol
vlady6us: she is getting all the spaces and air bubbles out of the
jude: No, rolling it distorts it more. Squeeze is better.
vlady6us: compressing it
phyllisinvegas: ah i see
Fearless Leader: now we will pull it
chani69m: any time I have done a cane I just started rolling it, now
I know better LOL
Janice: Mon français est très pauvre. Mais j'attrape un mot que je
comprends de temps en temps.
pdduke2003: she is trying to move the internal part of the cane along
with the outside part
vlady6us: i squeeze then roll just a little bit to get it smooth and
vlady6us: then squeeze some more
pdduke2003: that is why she does the squeeze!

vlady6us: we have one almost everyday now..its rainy season in florida
pdduke2003: hello

Fearless Leader: by using a CONE of clay, you can slice off different
sizes of petals

Fearless Leader: then flatten it and pull the top wide
sistersay2002 joined the room
vlady6us: ive made jillions of them elissa....thank you
kitycat2222000: can I ask a question when you blended with pearl - as
you were blending I could see the gradations, but in the finished
flower petals where did it go?
sistersay2002: Hi, Just popped in for a few !
elissaheart: You're very welcome, vlady!
vlady6us: yw elissa
Fearless Leader: Ok, I believe there was a request for Natasha Bead,
from Germany

vlady6us: bad at names
shargoose joined the room
vlady6us: hi shar

pdduke2003: kitycat has a question NJ
vlady6us: the roses are great nj
Fearless Leader: Oh, questions first
sistersay2002: Yup = me faith
vlady6us: ty faith
Fearless Leader: Ms. Kitty, what's your question, honey?
vlady6us: misplaced my list...
kitycat2222000: sorry - I lost track of the 'Skinner' glend when you
made the petals
kitycat2222000: blend
Fearless Leader: EB-Blend-Grp
mingapunga: brb
vlady6us: ok
jude: The lighter color doesn't show up in the cam.
kmrhodes left the room
kitycat2222000: well what I meant was - it was apparent in the
blending stage, but I can't detect it in the petals
pdduke2003: are you looking for the spots like the cane she made?
kitycat2222000: okay -
kitycat2222000: no, just the shading of colors
pdduke2003: ok
chani69m: I think you miss some of the shading over the cam
phyllisinvegas: like what happened to the white?
kitycat2222000: right
jude: I dont' see it either.
Donna: It is a little lighter in the centers
Donna: of the petals
jude: OI
jude: OIC, it's int he center.
phyllisinvegas: ok i see it
mingapunga: back, made some pictures, maybe you find the lost steps
there, i will put them in my epson account tomorrow
kitycat2222000: okay, I see it there, just suttle
vlady6us: ty ulrike
jude: Okie, NJ, thanks.
kitycat2222000: dsubtle = gads my spelling
Fearless Leader: Now for a quick Natasha, shall we chop Tiger Cane?
kitycat2222000: subtle
jude: I love the tiger cane.
vlady6us: sure nj
chani69m: yes please, I would love to see this
mingapunga: poor tiger
kitycat2222000: love that
Fearless Leader: I have to wash the red off of my hands, brb
phyllisinvegas: is that the tiger's tail?
Fearless Leader: more like tiger back
Fearless Leader: the end of a tiger tail is striped black and white
Fearless Leader: so the cubs can follow
phyllisinvegas: lol i see
vlady6us: does anyone have problems cutting good cane slices cause
the blade bends????
pdduke2003: yes
elissaheart: you need to use the stiffer blade.
vlady6us: i went to hardware store and got blades that go in a wall
paper stripper
Fearless Leader: just compress the air out, don't twist it,
chani69m: no I have a problem with the cane distorting
jude: Try using a miter box.
kitycat2222000: I saw a blade that was reinforced on the dull edge
vlady6us: they are really cheap for the small ones and very sharp
Donna: good idea -- I have an old miter box I was going to toss
pdduke2003: I really need to invest in some more blades, I have 3
(1rigid, and 2 flexible)
vlady6us: im trying a mitre box too but cant get the slices thin
pdduke2003: and they are all worn out
jude: I got one a long time ago, it's very small, and it's metal.
vlady6us: there are 2 sizes of wall paper blades..
elissaheart: are you having problems distorting a round cane?
vlady6us: sometimes i do elissa
pdduke2003: especially with Sculpey3
chani69m: yes I am
Fearless Leader: Ok, let me get a link for Natasha bead, it's the one
done in layers, but it's the best one
vlady6us: depends on what brand of clay i use
vlady6us: and i know to turn the cane for every slice
vlady6us: i really like these little rigid blades tho...
Fearless Leader: Biz-Archive/Chop/Beads/Index that's
the main page Biz-Archive/Chop/LayeredBeads-how2
that's a good tutorial for Natasha beads
chani69m: I use sculpy3 mostly, and I do turn the cane, but it still
Fearless Leader: Now, what you do is cut this in half length wise
Fearless Leader: open like a book
elissaheart: could make a long.trough out of scrap clay and powder it
to avoid sticking, then put the round cane in it and slice through
the cane and the trough. the trough will keep the cane from
Fearless Leader: take those two sides and slice down the middle again
Fearless Leader: and open them like a book
vlady6us: the clay is soft....u might try putting it in the
refigerator for a little while andi
Fearless Leader: you'll get mirror images
shargoose left the room
Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): computer hint - when asking a question and
it didn't get answered, just push the up arrow button, keep pushing
up arrow button till you see the question you asked then push enter,
this way you don't have to re-type every thing.
vlady6us: thank u elissa
chani69m: I'll try that next, TY
beddie0510: looks easy
kitycat2222000: thanks
vlady6us: im gonna try that elissa

pdduke2003: YES !
sistersay2002: yes
shargoose: At least getting rain for my flowers!!
vlady6us: oh thats good
phyllisinvegas: what is rain?
Fearless Leader: take your finger tip and put it over the seam and
press and "jiggle"...
Fearless Leader: prenez votre bout de doigt et mettez-l'au-dessus de
la couture et la pression et le "jiggle" ;...
vlady6us: the stuff we get every day now
shargoose: But severe stirm watch out so I'll keep an eye out for
pdduke2003: I love to make these beads, but the seams sometimes show
Fearless Leader: nehmen Sie Ihre Fingerspitze und setzen Sie sie über
der Naht und die Presse und das "jiggle"...
phyllisinvegas: we are in a drought
beddie0510: nora: actually that would have been my next question, how
to get rid of the seams
shargoose: We need some rain but not buckets full!!
vlady6us: nora..sometimes i use a small piece of "fun foam" to get
rid of seams and finger prints
Donna: that tiger sure makes nice looking designs for the beads
mingapunga: those translators are not worth a penny
beddie0510: fun foam?
vlady6us: kids use to to make shapes with to glue on things
beddie0510: these translating machines are a lot of fun
pdduke2003: have you been playing in the tubbie again Sandie?
vlady6us: it comes in sheets and is very inexpensive
vlady6us: lol pauline
vlady6us: as a matter of fact....yes

mingapunga: right, bettina
pdduke2003: no details pleazzzzzzzz
vlady6us: yes carole

pressure or are you smushing the line?

Fearless Leader: That's a clay shaper
shargoose: Got to go

Fearless Leader: with this natasha technique you can get these
tapered beads, square beads and Tube beads
shargoose: TTYL
vlady6us: ok shar
shargoose left the room
pdduke2003: take care shar
chani69m: can you use that bead to make a new cane and cut slices
instead of making a bead??
elissaheart: Kathy, that might be tricky. You could make a square
bead using a shorter cube of clay, instead of a rectangle.
Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): ok
pdduke2003: oh that is nice
vlady6us: love that
Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): looks just like wood

vlady6us: looks like a chop chop to me
vlady6us: i have visions of a natasha bead coming up
Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): me to
vlady6us: lol
phyllisinvegas: if I wanted to make a big flat sheet out of a can
would I just lay some pieces next to each other and kind of roll it
phyllisinvegas: er cane
pdduke2003: I don't seem to be the only one....
vlady6us: i roll out a thin sheet of another color and then put thin
slices on that then roll a bit with hand roller then use the p.
mingapunga: i would do it this way
pdduke2003: he he he he
phyllisinvegas: ah thanks
vlady6us: yw
vlady6us: there might be an easier way but thats how i do it
phyllisinvegas: like a leopard cane would you put it on a black sheet?
vlady6us: i probably would
phyllisinvegas: k
pdduke2003: what would happen if you took this bead at this point and
kept it as a cane ?

b_may66 left the room
mingapunga: that is the way the pattern goes from one side to the
kitycat2222000: I can't tell - is she rolling the shaper or just
pressing it
elissaheart: I think both.
Kathy (arizona_sweet2004): i think rolling to smooth
