face mold, cover tin, holly
norajean_sf: I think
merrie60us: I have to take a five minute break and
make the beds
merrie60us: brb
norajean_sf: That's the only thing that was really
new, the coleus
norajean_sf: everything else has web section, like the
stargazer lily, the fan fold flowers, the holly. The
links are in the demo logs sent to the list.

went into this aba fold here on cam

nndewbre: I
nndewbre: I'm here
nndewbre: sorta
leasbeadheaven: i'm back from dinner...hope i didn't
miss too much
merrie60us: missed nothing
merrie60us: we all just got back
leasbeadheaven: what is she making now?
merrie60us: not sure but she looks like she is
reducing the flower cane
merrie60us: cuts a slice
merrie60us: a few slices
merrie60us: must be making a flower
merrie60us: lots of slices
merrie60us: shaping slice with fingers
merrie60us: and then rolling around clay shaper
merrie60us: takes another slice and
merrie60us: shapes  into leaf shape
merrie60us: wraps that around bud on shaper
merrie60us: doing it again with another leaf
merrie60us: petal I should say
merrie60us: I would really like to know how to layer
petals to make a pod
wingsbe2: ummm    looking like a rose so far
merrie60us: are each of these petals becoming bigger
and bigger or all the same size?
merrie60us: yes
merrie60us: it does
merrie60us: petals starting to bend outward
merrie60us: keeps adding more petals
merrie60us: yes you are right does look like a rose
merrie60us: gorgeous
merrie60us: how get off shaper
nndewbre: So she must be making each petal thinner as
they are getting bigger off the same cane, right?
merrie60us: makes sense
merrie60us: not sure
merrie60us: I can imagine making a poinsetta like that
in those colors and putting glitter on the edges.
merrie60us: hmmm good idea
nndewbre: so pretty!!
merrie60us: =D>
merrie60us: what is she doing now
merrie60us: ?
merrie60us: another flower
merrie60us: in reds
nndewbre: a bud
merrie60us: oooh
nndewbre: Nope, not a bud
merrie60us: adding petals
merrie60us: another rose
merrie60us: in red
merrie60us: mmmm
merrie60us: she is so good at shaping the leaves
merrie60us: lots of patience
merrie60us: is that red a blend hard to tell
nndewbre: Oh so pretty!=D>
norajean_sf: Ok, the flower petals from yesterday
norajean_sf: when done like a rose
norajean_sf: gives you a totally different flower
buffy10207: very pretty
norajean_sf: This is an orange-ish flower petal made
into different flowers, depending on how you shape the
petals after cutting
norajean_sf: Here is a blue exerciese. Same flower
cane, sliced and then the petals formed different
after slicing
norajean_sf: trick to roses is to reduce the flower
cane like a cone
norajean_sf: so you have small slices for the inside
of the rose
merrie60us: oh interesting
norajean_sf: as you slice cane for the outer petals
cut from a wider part of the cane, cut wider cuts
wingsbe2: nifty
norajean_sf: so your petals will get larger as you to
nndewbre: Ah hah! I was pondering that
wingsbe2: I noticed that on the last rose when you
sliced it
norajean_sf: Here's the first experiment with slicing
rose petals from a cone shaped cane.
norajean_sf: The blend still needed work to do, but
the theory was usable
