12-24-05-11: Easy Breezy Blend to a Jellyroll, prep for a Lace Cane

12-24-05 Demo Log Index
norajean_sf: it's the top of the hour so I'll save
log. brb
norajean_sf: back
clayladyinred: k
phyllisinvegas: This must be the paper clay trick HUH?
phyllisinvegas: that is a good way to follow a pattern

bluebell5071: I just dont have it in my mind yet what
NJ is doing
norajean_sf: The penny is there to let you know that
the blown up picture is blurry
merrie60us: Is that the picture or the clay on the
norajean_sf: This is our pattern
norajean_sf: If we put clay color where the color is
on this one segment of leaf
merrie60us: okay I understand
phyllisinvegas: it is a print out
merrie60us: thanks
norajean_sf: when we repeat the leaf segment when we
build the leaf we should get close enough
phyllisinvegas: so sheet is made up of segments
norajean_sf: The leaf has segments
merrie60us: cane is made up of segments I think
norajean_sf: these have colors and designs that are
repeated in each segment
norajean_sf: look at what I cut out, it's a repeat of
everything else on that leaf
phyllisinvegas: aaaah got it
norajean_sf: often complex designs are just repeats of
simpler designs
phyllisinvegas: by george I got it
norajean_sf: So it stands to reason that one flower
petal will show us how to make the whole flower
phyllisinvegas: there is hope for me yet
norajean_sf: one segment of this leaf, when repeated
in different sizes, will make the whole leaf, that's
the theory behind this technique
norajean_sf: All pictures can be broken up into dots
and lines
phyllisinvegas: so if I put a bunch of little me's
together will I finally be a whole woman?
norajean_sf: LOL
norajean_sf: no you'll be a BBW like me
merrie60us: :D
phyllisinvegas: llollllll
norajean_sf: Because there's a whole lot of little
women inside of me just screaming to get out
phyllisinvegas: there is one little woman already out
in me
norajean_sf: Ok, Kare is back

norajean_sf: Kare, what is on cam is one segment of a
whole leaf, if we make a cane like this and then build
our coleus leaf we just might have it.
clayladyinred: right backatcha!

fish scale technique can get the green and dark purple
on the edge of this leaf
norajean_sf: I'll get the tute for fish scale
sybi98 has joined the conference.

norajean_sf: Or maybe just free forming it would work

leaf we're attempting

blend I will see if I can find it.

mousefingers1: I love the way nj blends stuff. less
passes through the PM means fewer bubbles my nasty
rollers have a chance to put in
mousefingers1: I need new rollers
phyllisinvegas: those bubbles are nasty critters
norajean_sf: Also the purple and pearl petal shows it
mousefingers1: yes they are
miss_meme_30: brb doorbell
phyllisinvegas: must be Santa.
mousefingers1: I'm just amazed watching you twist and
squish and roll
mousefingers1: so much quicker
sbjwh: I am learning sooo much
watercolorkare: and excellent results
mousefingers1: I did that a few times but for some
reason I felt like I was "breaking" some unwritten
mousefingers1: so I stopped
mousefingers1: silly me
merrie60us: jk
watercolorkare: rules are meant to be broken
norajean_sf: when you get an air bubble just slice it
and push the air out
mousefingers1: I only did it for special effects like
wood or metal
watercolorkare: especially in art
merrie60us: I think it gives a much better blend on
the ends
merrie60us: especially
mousefingers1: I get so many air bubbles, especially
in trans clay that it looks like boiling clay strips
merrie60us: are your hands moist?
watercolorkare: ew
merrie60us: moisture can cause air bubbles I have
mousefingers1: I have a hard time being a rule breaker
for some reason.
sbjwh: lol
mousefingers1: no, very very dry
mousefingers1: and clean machine
phyllisinvegas: trans clay is notorious for bubbles
bluebell5071: what is trans clay?
mousefingers1: so I've heard and learned
merrie60us: Look the perfect blend
mousefingers1: transparent
phyllisinvegas: translucent
bluebell5071: oh ok
bluebell5071: didnt know that
mousefingers1: yes, phyllis is correct
mousefingers1: there is no transparent
phyllisinvegas: I wish it was transparent that would
be a neat clay
mousefingers1: ta da
mousefingers1: yes, i agree
bluebell5071: this is fascinating to me.
bluebell5071: Only my second demo ever
mousefingers1: is our sweet nora doing web shots of
this cane?

mousefingers1: that tute
norajean_sf: Check that out for this blend
norajean_sf: it's using the same colors actually
norajean_sf: the first two sections
norajean_sf: each section on that page has more
pictures to look at
merrie60us: the blendgroup.htm
norajean_sf: The purple flower shows this Easy Breezy
Blend trick, but it ends as a fan fold
mousefingers1: oh, yes I have the flower page, and the
group glend.
norajean_sf: I'm making this blend into a jelly roll
norajean_sf: but I'm cutting off some of the pearl

lace cane

wheelchair much longer. But I find meself glued and
mesmerized @-) hee hee hee :D
mousefingers1: and me grammer is shot
phyllisinvegas: my bum is flat by now
merrie60us: :(
norajean_sf: Also since we have our other clayers
here. It's totally cool for them to open their cams
