I said it before but I will say it again... Oh Boy! LOL!
I bought round living rubber skirt material. I didn't but the already cut or the banded kind. I bought the kind that came in big long lengths of continuous strands.
I figured... no sweat... this will be fun and easy.
I have never made my own skirt out of this material before.
Woah boy! LOL!
I read that all you need to do is stretch the rubber and the individual strands seperate
Well, I fiddled around and I tried this and i tried that... my first attempt was to take a pen, slide the skirt band up on it and then slide the skirt material, still solid and not yet broken into strands, into the pen and pulled the band over it. I then seperated the bands. It didnt seperate as easy as I had figured it would... I ended up having to spend a while seperating each individual strand with finger nails... anyway I got it all seperated but realized that the colors werent stacked how I wanted them... I didnt want all t he colors mixed all up.. I wanted the chartreuse, lime and white to be only on one side... in one concentrated spot... so... I took it all apart... now comes the OH BOY... LOL!
I soon realized I didnt have the proper tools... or didnt have a clue what i was doing LOL!
this is what I ended up with LOL!
So... let me ask... how do you deal with this kind of skirt material? lol Im guessing splitting all the strands and THEN trying to form a skirt was a BAD idea lol
How bout some advice and some tips on working with rounded living rubber continuous strands please?
