Deconstruction Video on YouTube Live
If you would like to see how to Deconstruct your Exploding PodCast Set, please join us now (or later) at this link, and I’ll be doing one live at noon, and then taking questions, etc. I will also show how to handle each section after it comes off so it is ready for us.
See you there, or catch up later. The video will save under the “Live” header on our channel.
After you watch, remember, here are your steps:
THE RICK-RACK can simply be tried on for size. Each round added makes it effectively smaller to wiggle into. If the size is perfect, you are finished. If it’s too small we have a LOT of ideas to finish it as a flower, or to Deconstruct it into smaller Sizing Bands.
If you finished it to 12 rounds, you will have the best size check. You could see in the video how much bigger and looser 6 rounds is than 12. Each round adds personality, room for design, and takes away wiggle room.
THE WAVE SECTION
should come off big, ideally, and one of your first jobs is to stabilize its size by placing a reinforcing peyote round on the inside edge. Choose 0, 1 or 2 beads to place in the Valley spaces at your decreases, depending on the sizing you like. If your Wave is too small, we will be surprised, but also we have a lot of things you can do with HyperLoops, which is what the Wave is. Stay Tuned.
THE CASTING SPINES need their Stitch-In-The-Ditch down their middle lines (the second round of each set of three) and then they can be separated. Each of the Spines can be a tool, or grow up to be a Helical Coil, a Geometric Capture, or many many other forms. We will develop them into all of these on video.
Your PodCast Bead is back in your hands, and ready for MORE. You can build anything you like on it, and now you understand your sizes better.
As soon as we have size feedback from all y’all, and see your examples (and debug your mistakes if necessary) we will feel comfortable to publish the official pattern and move forward with the finish of the Pattern Book.
