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
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
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
rschneiter1963: dont you get like folds? I do
norajean_sf: when you pinch the neck you make the
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
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
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 you...it 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
norajean_sf: take a break folks
norajean_sf: or chat
bonsaikathy: okey doke
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
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
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
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
rschneiter1963: back side?
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
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
