Thank you so much for looking, we appreciate that. ;-D
Mix all of the colors, even the black and opaque white with an equal amount of porcelain white.
Remove the blade and leave the cane standing with the everything the way it was cut.
You do not have to smash these together now. You do not really have to touch the cane that much. Just place it back together and match top and bottom.
Turn and press all the way to the top of the cane from the middle section. Turn the cane over and press and rotate a little at a time to the top again until you have reduced the cane to half the diameter it was.
35. Your cane cut should look like this.
Roll down section to 10".
Should be about 1/4" to 3/16" in diameter.
Cut in to 5- 2" sections.
37. This will look wrong because the section is bigger that yours will be. I made it that way so you could see it better.
Pinch the end of the cane section right where all the black lines meet.
Turn the can over and pinch the other end where the lines meet.
Pinch all the way down the edge of the cane to the other mark or pinch you made. If I do this I do not have to use registration marks on the outside of the cane. If when you roll your cane you flip it from end to end once in a while and roll on the other side too.
44. If you cut the cane in the middle you will have a flower with out edges and is in the shape of a flower. Set this aside and we will add canes to the outside of another flower to fill it in also.
I use this flower just like this by taking slices off it with out having any background on it. The next flower will have a background and the two will be used together on a BOH (bottle of hope) along with just the petal slices too, Oh and some of the background canes too. You will see step by step... ;-D
