raven_hill_wench has joined the conference.

norajean_sf: Shawna got booted
norajean_sf: oh there she is
norajean_sf: let's see if the invite to cam works now
You have invited raven_hill_wench to view your webcam.

norajean_sf: sent invite to cam
norajean_sf: To answer your question Sandie. When we
roll up clay like this, it's a jelly roll.
norajean_sf: If we took a snake, surrounded it with a
sheet. That's a bullseye
norajean_sf: Ah Shawna got cam
minimadness423: did you start with a skinner blend
raven_hill_wench: woohoo
vlady6us: LOL NJ
norajean_sf: LOL
minimadness423: NJ eyes
bonsaikathy: is yours running again NJ
vlady6us: i didnt show u
norajean_sf: She worked so hard to get cam
raven_hill_wench: lol
norajean_sf: Fixing to BK, you need invite, fixing to
do fish scale
bonsaikathy: yes
bonsaikathy: please
norajean_sf: Sandie does Skinner Blends. I do the Easy
Breezy Blend
You have invited bonsaikathy to view your webcam.

norajean_sf: cuz I'm a lady girl
norajean_sf: That's the screen shots showing the Easy
Breezy Blend
norajean_sf: ok, Now there's another link I'm going to
get for y'all
norajean_sf: how to take these jelly rolls and make
fish scale
norajean_sf: What I do for a fish scale look is to
take a jelly roll made with a blend like these
norajean_sf: cut them into quarters and reassemble
with the points all going in the same direction.
norajean_sf: I'll reduce these jelly roll blends and
then cut them into fourths
norajean_sf: now I reassemble them with the points
going in the same direction
norajean_sf: if we reduce this, slice it into a number
of lenths we can keep on stacking them with the points
going in the same direction
vlady6us: way cool nj..r u gonna put them up..will
make great cover for bowls
norajean_sf: it is a cool trick and so easy
norajean_sf: and a nifty effect depending on the
colors used
vlady6us: yeah but...i need a pic when i make one
vlady6us: so if u see a bowl someday...u will know
where i got it from
norajean_sf: There are some examples of the same
norajean_sf: done with different colors
norajean_sf: now if we used a handful of different
jelly roll blends, mixed and matched the scales
vlady6us: cool thanks
norajean_sf: we'd get some fancy pants fish scale
vlady6us: i have several i can experiemtn
later one
vlady6us: on
vlady6us: oops cant type
norajean_sf: so to summarize
norajean_sf: take two colors and make a blend
norajean_sf: 89 pictures to see how I do blends
vlady6us: lol..ok
norajean_sf: then take a blended ribbon of clay and
roll it like a jelly roll cake
norajean_sf: cut it into fourths and stack
norajean_sf: reduce, slice into four lengths and stack
norajean_sf: keep on doing that until you get the size
you want.
norajean_sf: Now since this is a quarter round. It
stands to reason that you can take four of these and
make a circle
norajean_sf: I'd add a separation sheet between all
four quarter round shapes
vlady6us: yep
raven_hill_wench: I need to learn the trick to
reducing lol
vlady6us: practice raven.
vlady6us: cool nj
norajean_sf: yup, also condition the clay so it's got
the plasticizers distrubuted, we're looking for a
silly putty pull
minimadness423: I wish reducing was as easy as
shrinking on the photo copier...:D
norajean_sf: so when we reduce the cane it'll stretch
for us
raven_hill_wench: me to mini
norajean_sf: ever stretch Silly Putty?
vlady6us: many years ago
norajean_sf: it's the same sort of movement, but the
clay has to be warm and conditioned so it's elastic
minimadness423: years ago...will PC pick up a copy
from the Sunday morning funny pages?
raven_hill_wench: I should go buy some silly putty
vlady6us: ive had pc pick up the writing on a package
of pc
vlady6us: made me mad cause it was white
vlady6us: and writing on a piece of paper too
norajean_sf: pinch and pull
norajean_sf: that's what I do, pinch to get a purchase
for my finger tips and pull in opposite directions
minimadness423: Raven, to get the best feel for it
take a single color of clay and reduce that one color
after condition it well. 
mousefingers1: I'll be back....Uncle Sam hates
vlady6us: ok pam
minimadness423: how do you keep from getting big
knobby ends like a dog bone?
mousefingers1: :-?
mousefingers1: >:D<
mousefingers1 has left the conference.

raven_hill_wench: the only problem I have with
reducing is the colors mixing
vlady6us: before u start to reduce a cane....gently
squeeze both ends so they are smaller than the middle
norajean_sf: Pat is coming
vlady6us: u will have less waste
creationsbypat has joined the conference.

norajean_sf: Hey Aunt Jude, happy new year
norajean_sf: it's a quarter round, but not a chevron
as such
greatauntjudy: Happy New Year to youz too!
norajean_sf: since we start out with a jelly roll
blend that's a circle
norajean_sf: we cut it into quarters and stack
norajean_sf: we still have a quarter of a circle
lunytuner: "Happy Happy" to you Aunt Jude
norajean_sf: each time we reduce and cut and
reassemble we're still ending up with a quarter of a
greatauntjudy: I hope everyone is having a great New
Year's Eve.
vlady6us: so far its good
wwpeabody: aok
norajean_sf: when we reduce this again and reassemble
we get smaller and smaller designs
lunytuner: the cane  looks like it could be a
Christmas tree too!
norajean_sf: but that's ok, because when we slice and
press it to a sheet, those designs stretch out
greatauntjudy: A Christmas tree. Yes...pretty.

gathering up things half done and finishing them, ergo
he's on the work table
creationsbypat: I see
norajean_sf: I wasn't sure if his face was what I
wanted, so I put him aside, which is one of the great
things about polymer clay
norajean_sf: you can wrap things up, set them aside
for a year and then go back to them
norajean_sf: and work on them again
creationsbypat: it's a great medium
lunytuner: he is way cool! I have stuff begging to be
finished sea captain waiting 5 years to be
