norajean_sf: how to disable firewall for XP
little38chevy: ok ty
rschneiter1963: NJ when you are making the necks small
do you pinch and smooth?
canastananny: all this tech stuff is way too much for
norajean_sf: Now are there any questions about this
technique of pressing cane slices to a sheet to make a
pinch pot?
rschneiter1963: YES
nefret111: no
mommaclara2001: That is really cute, NJ
norajean_sf: pinch, flatten edge, thin sides of neck,
repeat as necessary
rschneiter1963: how do you do the smaller part?  you
just squish and smooth?
rschneiter1963: that is my downfall
norajean_sf: it's three fold
norajean_sf: pinch the neck
norajean_sf: flatten the top of the pot's edge
canastananny: adorable
nefret111: i didn't realize the neck and lip were
norajean_sf: then take a tool and stick it inside the
neck of the pot and press the tool against the clay
against your thumb and thin the walls of the neck of
the pot
rschneiter1963: dont you get like folds?  I do
norajean_sf: when you pinch the neck you make the
walls thicker
norajean_sf: the clay has to go somewhere
barbswire31 has left the conference.

norajean_sf: so after you pinch inward, making the
clay thick, you thin that clay by making the neck
rschneiter1963: hmmm
norajean_sf: I'll do another regular pinch pot to show
you, but are there any questions about this citrus
cane on black, kemper tool technique?
rschneiter1963: no it is lovely
canastananny: No
bonsaikathy: not here, I think I understood that part
canastananny: But it is my favorite
bonsaikathy: it's neat
norajean_sf: the moves are incremental and repeated
over and over, that's the trick of pinch pots. A
little bit is done at a time.
myladyz: thank is soooooo cuteeee!!!!!!!!
norajean_sf: There's so many canes you can press to a
sheet to make a decorated pot
little38chevy: ok nj i did what it said should i
norajean_sf: I think it would be a fun and funky tea
norajean_sf: yes Lil'Chevy reboot
canastananny: I am still working on making
norajean_sf: and then IM me when you're back
rschneiter1963: I have some canes I bout but the they
be kind of hard
bonsaikathy: yes that would be a neat teapot
little38chevy: brb and tyvm
little38chevy has left the conference.

norajean_sf: It's at the half hour so I'll save log
and brb
norajean_sf: take a break folks
norajean_sf: or chat
bonsaikathy: okey doke
canastananny: okay
myladyz: I have definately have to try these!!


norajean_sf: back, had to edit the log to make sure
there's no overlap
canastananny: And talent! ! !
rschneiter1963: maybe I will get nervy and do
something besides solid
canastananny: glad you are back NJ
myladyz: I have what is called scrap canes I bought
and I am going to try with them to make one of these!
norajean_sf: Now before I do another regular pinch pot
for those who just joined us, are there any questions
about anything
rschneiter1963: yes
norajean_sf: go for it honey
rschneiter1963: when you did them slices you did them
real thin?  and then rolled them
rschneiter1963: how thick was that black?
norajean_sf: at the thickest setting
rschneiter1963: ok thanks
bonsaikathy: for me that is about 1/8" for those
norajean_sf: and I wanted to show everyone you can use
a pie crust roller or a brayer if you don't have a
pasta machine
myladyz: do you oil or prepare anything on the roller?
norajean_sf: a lot of folks think you need a pasta
machine to press cane slices on a sheet of clay
rschneiter1963: and they stuck in there you dont have
to do anything else to the slices?
norajean_sf: I don't do any prep to the roller
myladyz: ok
myladyz: ty
bonsaikathy: yes I use a brayer or rolling pin on top
of either 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 thicknesses of popsicle
norajean_sf: and the citrus slices stuck because they
got rolled over
bonsaikathy: set on either side of the clay for even
norajean_sf: if your sheet sticks to the tile, use a
bit of powder on the back side
norajean_sf: just like a baby
bonsaikathy: each one is about 1/16" thick
norajean_sf: LOL
rschneiter1963: back side?
bonsaikathy: underneath
rschneiter1963: oh ok
bonsaikathy: where it touches the tile
rschneiter1963: that would be me!!
norajean_sf: sometimes the sheet will stick to the
tile, so dust it with cornstarch or baby powder
myladyz: I always use wax paper on my working surface
for the covering so I can throw it away when it gets
too messy
rschneiter1963: boy you are all so educated lol
nefret111: i baked on deli paper the other night and
that doesn't work!
nefret111: it is ok to build on, but not bake on
