colors so like colors meet like colors on the corners
vlady6us: run through pm on largest setting
vlady6us: fold again
vlady6us: and repeat
norajean_sf: but I wring the clay like a chicken neck
and then press through the pasta machine
vlady6us: put folded edge through pm
vlady6us: see how the colors are changing.
vlady6us: thats about 3 passes through pm
donnarae44: yes. 
donnarae44: what the heck am i doing wrong??  mine
dont come out like that
donnarae44: nj  you are twisting
norajean_sf: since mixing the clay colors is the goal
of blends
norajean_sf: I figured, why not twist the clay before
pressing to increase the mix per press ratio
vlady6us: i think this one needs more yellow so i
added a strip
donnarae44: but how do you keep from getting the white
mixed with color?  sorry buys, i konow i am a slow
learner... espically when i have this 3yr old in my
norajean_sf: the goal is to get the lighter color
mixed with the darker
norajean_sf: so one end is light, middle is blend, and
the other end is dark
norajean_sf: sometimes the dark clay eats up the light
so Sandie added more yellow
norajean_sf: I'm going to add more pearl
donnarae44: ya'all are so good!!!
vlady6us: u can be too
donnarae44: i wanna be.   thats my middle name.  donna
wannabe  lol
norajean_sf: lol
wwpeabody: Donna you have a standing invite to my
place so I can help you
donnarae44: thanks wanda.  we really need to get
together.  that would be such fun
wwpeabody: when I get back from my road trip will make
arrangements ok
vlady6us: this is blended gonna fold it in
half one more time and run it through the pm going in
the other direction now. cause i want a short fat plug

norajean_sf: Sandie if you raise your webcam up on a
box or something we can see more of your work area
vlady6us: ok
vlady6us: now it wont show the table
donnarae44: im gonna say i cant see it.  that way i
got my self covered and you wont all think im just
stupid  lol
norajean_sf: I anchor the webcam cord with something
to hold it in a certain direction
vlady6us: im rolling this from light to dark
norajean_sf: now to change my sheet so it's one color
at one long end I'll fold it and press it with one
color going into the rollers
vlady6us: heres mine donna
donnarae44: very cool'
vlady6us: but my clay is way to soft to do anything
else with it now
donnarae44: that is so neat the way you did that
norajean_sf: now here's a trick when you have a long
ribbon like this
norajean_sf: slice it down the middle
norajean_sf: roll two jelly rolls from opposite
donnarae44: how did you get it that long without
having it all messed up?
vlady6us: who donna?
donnarae44: that long strip NJ has
norajean_sf: prayer
vlady6us: lol
norajean_sf: LOL
donnarae44: lol
norajean_sf: he he he
norajean_sf: I grab it from below and pull it forward
while turning the pasta handle
vlady6us: sometimes when i know mine is gonna be real
long...a start running it through the pm..then make
the strip come out so its in front of the pm
vlady6us: every couple of turns i pull it out more
vlady6us: so it doesnt fold on itself
vlady6us: way cool nj
donnarae44: i see..  kinda
norajean_sf: so one blend can give you two different
jelly rolls by slicing it down the middle and rolling
each one from the opposite direction
donnarae44: yes.  both of you way cool
vlady6us: donna we can do 1on 1 some day when we arent
vlady6us: and u can do it along with me
norajean_sf: that's the best way to do it, Sandie,
have folks clay along
donnarae44: ok   mabye i could figure it out.  thanks
donnarae44: sometimes i just feel like such a slow
learner.  that was a nice way to put it  lol
norajean_sf: let me get you some links for screen
shots of making a blend
norajean_sf: brb
donnarae44: i will get me a tv tray or something to
put by my puter.  small space here
