norajean_sf: see how one end has all red and the other
end has all pearl?
clayalley: take half of each sheet

phyllisinvegas: lopsided triangle
norajean_sf: now I'll fold it in half and start
wringing it like a wet wash cloth

an inch form the corner
clayalley: fold the red to touch the red on the other

to half its sixe and run it thru the pm again.

end there
norajean_sf: because I can

clayalley: you can add to the pearl (or red) if you
wish and then fold, twist, scrunch, pinch into a
triangle and run thru the pm for the 5th time
clayalley: blend is happening quickly now
clayalley: for the 6th, you can roll up the sheet,
twist, scrunch, pinch into triangle and run it thru
the pm
norajean_sf: ok, I'm going to fold this and press it
so the pearl is at one end and the red is on the other
end of the ribbon
phyllisinvegas: and just look how nice and neat her
sheet is, how come mine don't come out that way?
clayalley: see, by now I would have brown mud
phyllisinvegas: lol
phyllisinvegas: loooong sheet
norajean_sf: ok, so we could roll this so the pearl is
in the center of a jelly roll
norajean_sf: or the red could be in the center of the
jelly roll
norajean_sf: Or
norajean_sf: we could FAN FOLD it so the pearl or the
red is at one end
norajean_sf: depending on what sort of effect we want
norajean_sf: I'm going to show you the fan fold, ok?
