because many people didn't understand the reduction and the cutting of the cane, two pictures have been added to Kelly's tutorial by



 You need to make a skinner blend with at least three colours.

Then, you join a white and a dark coloured strip of clay, here a blue one.


you wrap the strip obtained into a jellyroll cane.

you reduce the cane obtained into a long log and you use a rippled tissue blade to cut slices into the log on the length sense



 when you cut slices into the log, you see that pretty patterns will appear: you will use these slices to cover a ball of clay, taking care of smoothing very well the joint.

As a final step, you will create the beads you prefer in the shapes you prefer, taking care of not crushing the sides.

This is your turn to play!!!
