Fearless Leader: is rattle snake experiment alright with all y'all
countrylady100ca: Sure
chmatt194: Yes
jude: No fangs, NJ!
rickiebeth1: I am ready to watch whatever you want to make
tedi382001: yep
Shannon: yeppers
poonkie2: I won't be able to stay too long, I have friends coming
over for diner
Fearless Leader: ok, these colors I took out I have to rechop and
repress for they've been in storage
Fearless Leader: the plasticizers leach to the lowest gravity level
Fearless Leader: and therefore the elastic properties are uneven
with stored sheets
Fearless Leader: remember when you press cane slices on a sheet, use
it then, don't store it
countrylady100ca: I am curious what is the plasticizers leach ?????
Fearless Leader: this shift of plasticizers will crack your pressed
cane slice sheets.
Fearless Leader: When clay is too soft, one can lay sheets of clay
on a paper towel to leach out the excess plasticizers, which are in
polymer clay so we can pull it like taffy.
countrylady100ca: oh kewl
Fearless Leader: pressed sheets, resting, the plasticizers migrate
to the lowest gravity point, making the elastic properties of that
sheet be uneven, causing cracking
Fearless Leader: look
DTIntermart: there is no way to save them NJ?
DTIntermart: or restore them..
Fearless Leader: re chop in the food processor, drizzle a bit of
TLS, repress
vlady6us: just recycle them doug
countrylady100ca: That's why I have problems.
Fearless Leader: that's what I need to do now
Fearless Leader: so amuse yourselves while I do that to these solid
color sheets
