Fearless Leader: sorry I was helping Rickie Beth
Fearless Leader: ok, so the way we get those different colors is by
doing a .... what? Anyone? How do we get three colors on one sheet of
jill_z_q: a blend?
sharonvintn: Skinner blend
Fearless Leader: yuppers
Fearless Leader: exactly right
jill_z_q: ooh do I get a star?
rickiebeth1 joined the room
Fearless Leader: An extra petal on your good guess daisy, honey!
sharonvintn: Hey Rickie Beth
babasbunja: no, you get an orange lol
rickiebeth1: I am here this way - via MSAT
jill_z_q: lol Bernie
rickiebeth1: Hello Everyone
Katie: Hi
Fearless Leader: just sent you an invite to the cam Rickie Beth
vlady6us: hi
Fearless Leader: So the first picture on this webpage are the colors
that I'm going to blend
Fearless Leader:
Fearless Leader: now how I got those colors
Fearless Leader: start out with red and yellow to get a base orange
Fearless Leader: then add a bunch of translucent to it
Fearless Leader: that will get you this bit of clay I'm going to show
you on cam
rickiebeth1: I got an invite from someone- could they please resend
Fearless Leader: I sent you an invite to cam if you don't have it
Fearless Leader: now the meat of an orange isn't this red
Fearless Leader: you have to add a touch of yellow to this
Fearless Leader: see how that looks like orange juice?
Fearless Leader: add some cured ice cubes to that and form like a
glass and you got iced orange juice
Fearless Leader: now the pith of the orange juice is that color but a
touch whiter
rickiebeth1: One more time, please, I am having trouble adding people
to my friends list
An Invitation to view your Webcam was sent to rickiebeth1 (6/25/04
8:19 PM)
Fearless Leader: again, RB
Fearless Leader: so I took this orange juice colored clay and added
vlady6us: brb. have to take the dog out..again
Fearless Leader: that will be the pith between the orange segments
jill_z_q: I know we don't have sound but for second the silence was
way too loud
jill_z_q: giggles
Katie: wow, I thought the other one was yellow
Fearless Leader: now we take the orange juice cane and form it like a
Fearless Leader: and cover it with pith this much
Katie: LOL Suzy
Fearless Leader: one side bare, one side with pith
Fearless Leader: understand to this point?
Fearless Leader: I'm going to explain it before doing it, ya see?
MK (celebrate_abundance2002) joined the room
Fearless Leader:
Fearless Leader: That's what we're doing, honey
Fearless Leader: Ok, so we take the orange juice cane, form it into a
wedge and cover the wedge on two out of three sides
Fearless Leader: that so when you slice sections you can put them
bare side to covered side and not have double pith thickness
Fearless Leader: looks better
MK: Thanks...I'd guess you were responding to someone else since I
just joined you all...but Geez, it's like you're reading my mind! LOL
Fearless Leader: I just keep the prep page loaded up to paste as soon
as someone comes in the room
Fearless Leader: old trick
Fearless Leader: LOL
Fearless Leader: ok see these wheels here?
jill_z_q: passes around orange juice
Fearless Leader: wedges of orange juice wedges, cut and stacked as a
Katie: yes?
Katie: wedges
Fearless Leader: so we have a citrus round
chelyha55: Did you go over the ratio of trans to orange clay or is
that on one of the pages you put up?
Fearless Leader: and now we need the peel
Fearless Leader: Cheryl, I took a picture of a sliced orange and
eyeballed it, truth be known
rickiebeth1: I have seen these oranges in person, and they are
Fearless Leader: but I'll go over the relative ratios as we go
through steps, I'll guess my ratios
Fearless Leader: a handful of this and a booger of that
Fearless Leader: LOL
sharonvintn: Well my mouth is watering, slurp
chelyha55: I remember I asked you how you made the lime and you said
equal parts cobalt blue and zinc yellow with a ton of translucent
chelyha55: so it's mostly just according to taste, would you say?
Fearless Leader: exactly
Fearless Leader: salt to taste, that's the ticket
Fearless Leader: ok, now dig
chelyha55: ok, I can handle that
Fearless Leader: after we get the wheel of citrus with pith
Fearless Leader: we need to put the peel on it
Fearless Leader: this peel is a blend of three colors
Fearless Leader: then we wrap the wheel with the peel
Fearless Leader: and reduce it
Fearless Leader: I cut and cured some from this cane and put a drop
of finish on it to show
Fearless Leader:
Fearless Leader: it's on that page too
Fearless Leader: at the bottom
babasbunja: Anyone remember the commercial character who wore a hat
of fruit?
sharonvintn: Carmen Miranda
elissaheart: fruit of the loom guy?
Fearless Leader: chakita banana
babasbunja: LOL
Katie: LOL
sharonvintn: Guess I went way back!!
babasbunja: You went back correctly.
elissaheart: lol!
MK: Makes me think...chiquita bananas
Katie: tiny
rickiebeth1: they are small!!!
sharonvintn: Nj did you wrap a ball of cane with orange clay for the
small orange??
sharonvintn: I'm getting befused here
Fearless Leader: ya know how you pinch the end for natasha beads?
Fearless Leader: or how I do?
Fearless Leader: you do the same to the end of the cane for one end
of the orange
Fearless Leader: cut off a bit of cane and then pinch the other end
Fearless Leader: then peel
Fearless Leader: or slice as you like
babasbunja: what's befusing my dear?
Fearless Leader: but darling
Fearless Leader: I'm going to show you how to do this
Fearless Leader: I figure if I explain it ahead of time
sharonvintn: How you covered the whole orange
Fearless Leader: you all can save log
Fearless Leader: and then watch me do it
Fearless Leader: and re read the log with the instructions all in one
Fearless Leader: I'll repeat myself, don't worry
Katie: where did NJ go?

Fearless Leader: ok, let me get you a link for these clay chips
Fearless Leader:

Fearless Leader: Please check this page
Fearless Leader: Top row raw, bottom row cured but not polished or
covered with shiney stuff. Starting from the left: Cadmium Yellow
Cadmium Red Half yellow, half red, the resulting orange; Orange 1
part, translucent 8 parts; that resulting orange one part,
translucent 1 part...for the flesh of blood oranges; that resulting
orange one part, translucent 1 part...or the meat of regular oranges;
that resulting orange one part, translucent 1 part....For orange
crysalis7: Greetings, all. Just got home from Church.
Katie: Hi
Fearless Leader: Howdy Bobbie
Fearless Leader:

Fearless Leader: Cheryl you were asking for ratios
sharonvintn: Hi Bobbie
Fearless Leader: here ya go
Fearless Leader: how much yellow to red to make orange
Fearless Leader: how much translucent to that orange to get orange
Fearless Leader: just with this orange juice mix I'm using I'm adding
a touch of yellow
chelyha55: I would start with the yellow and add red
Fearless Leader: the mix gets refined each time you do it
Fearless Leader: one can start out in any order
Fearless Leader: just don't mix white in it until you're aiming for
chelyha55: well the cad red is so powerful
sharonvintn: Seems all reds are very strong
Fearless Leader: we want the meat of the oranges to be translucent so
just lighten the saturation with no color translucent
chelyha55: I guess then once you get the orange color then you add
tiny bits of it to the trans till you get the tint you want
Fearless Leader: yes
Fearless Leader: exactly
Fearless Leader: now since I have my orange juice mix already done we
can cover it with pith and cut it into sections
Fearless Leader: let me get you another link
Fearless Leader:
Fearless Leader: I'll stay with the demo prep page
Fearless Leader: I was going to get you and old orange tute but I'm
doing a blend this time instead of stacking sheets
Fearless Leader: so anyway, we're all familiar with doing a blend,
Fearless Leader: who is not?
Fearless Leader: I assume everyone knows how to do a blend, yes?
chani69m: yes
Katie: yes
chelyha55: yes
sharonvintn: yup
Kathy..arizona_sweet2004: yes
Fearless Leader: ok, then you know how to fan fold the ribbon, so
there's the dark clay on one side and light on the other and then
rest is zig zagged up in a stack?
sharonvintn: yup
Kathy..arizona_sweet2004: yes
Fearless Leader: well this in the cam is that fan folded blend pressed
chani69m: no don't know what you mean there
Fearless Leader: ok, let me get you a link
chani69m: k
Fearless Leader:
Fearless Leader: that's a fan fold with pearl and purple
Fearless Leader: but, it's a fan fold
Fearless Leader: with a ribbon that was a blend
Fearless Leader: let me know if that makes sense or not, ok?
chani69m: ok got it now
Fearless Leader: coolness
Fearless Leader: ok, what I did with my fan folded stack
Fearless Leader: was SMASH IT
Fearless Leader: smash it flat and pressed it to get this what's in
the cam
Fearless Leader: that's our orange peel
Fearless Leader: so with that I'll do save log and show you

vlady6us: black
vlady6us: and low on others
vlady6us: hi ddmcc
ddmcc: helloooo, desiree here
Fearless Leader:
rickiebeth1: if you want Kato clay..please let me know
Fearless Leader: this is how to make this pitcher of iced lemonade
chelyha55: desiree from PCJ?
rickiebeth1: hello ddmcc
ddmcc: yup and from san jose1
crysalis7 left the room
chelyha55: ah. I sold one of the beads I made from your kitty's
Fearless Leader: Howdy Desiree we're reviewing how to do iced lemonade
Fearless Leader:

ddmcc: I LOVE lemonade!
Fearless Leader: ok, the trick to this is
Fearless Leader: take yellow
Fearless Leader: mix with a ton of translucent until you have the
lemonade hue you want
Fearless Leader: take lemon cane and slice a bunch and cure them
Fearless Leader: take your cured mini ice and set that aside
Fearless Leader: take a plug of the Lemonade mix, mix in the cured
lemon slices
Fearless Leader: and then form into a pitcher shape
Fearless Leader: take that and tippy tap the head into the cured mini
Fearless Leader: then cure
Fearless Leader: wetsand it to make it smooth on the sides
Fearless Leader: so some of that cured lemon cane and cured ice cubes
Fearless Leader: then add no color translucent for the lip, handle
and foot of the pitcher
Fearless Leader: garnish as you wish
vlady6us: thats so neat
Fearless Leader: the juice is the jug, the jug is the juice, it's
clay zen
Fearless Leader: same for canned vegetables
Fearless Leader: check this out
Fearless Leader: orange marmelade
Fearless Leader: use the orange juice mix for your oranges
Fearless Leader: chop up some of that three color peel
Fearless Leader: form into a jar shape and give it a lid
Fearless Leader: and you have a cupboard full of home canned food
vlady6us: neat
Fearless Leader: when you're doing juice for the smaller scales this
translucent and mini ice just fills the bill.
Fearless Leader: this lemonade glass doesn't have a finish on it so
it looks dusty
vlady6us: frosted
Fearless Leader: so there ya go
ddmcc: thank you!
vlady6us: like my mammas iced tea glasses were pretty
Fearless Leader: now what colors would you use for Ruby grapefruit
Fearless Leader: or cumquat?
Fearless Leader: or lime?
vlady6us: red. white, orange
vlady6us: trans
Fearless Leader: all of them need the three color blended peel
vlady6us: a touch of yellow maybe
Fearless Leader: you start with the meat of the citrus and add white
for pith
Fearless Leader: in all cases, oranges, lemons, lime
Kathy..arizona_sweet2004: ok
Fearless Leader:
Fearless Leader: this is another fruit that uses the three color blend
Fearless Leader: but NOT for the peel
Fearless Leader: for the space between the peel and the meat of the
chelyha55: making the peel would be an interesting challenge
Fearless Leader: that green bit you cut down to when you do melon
Kathy..arizona_sweet2004: cantelope going to be the next fruit?
Fearless Leader: check out that link
Fearless Leader: We'll do cantelope this week end, but I have to do
prep first
Kathy..arizona_sweet2004: ok
Fearless Leader: just had time to do prep for oranges for tonight
Kathy..arizona_sweet2004: k
Fearless Leader: Now for a new experiment with the oranges
Fearless Leader: what if
Fearless Leader: we take the orange juice mix
Fearless Leader: and make a lace cane with no color translucent or a
very thin layer of pith color?
Fearless Leader: and then make the wedges?
Kathy..arizona_sweet2004: is the demo over for tonight?
Fearless Leader: wouldn't our slices have a bunch of little cells?
Fearless Leader: this part is almost over, I wanted to get through a
whole lesson before it got too late for those on the East Coast
ddmcc: looks like it, huh?
Fearless Leader: let me save log and if there's Short Orders hollar

MaMa Duke: the only thing is, it does react to some of the plastic,
had to cover the bottoms of each drawer that I use
MaMa Duke: haha I don't have all sixty drawers for canes! I wish I did

react with the clay.
