I tried doing it with 6 inches and found it alot easier. But made 1 mistake right in the middle, of course, so ruined it all. I do have 1 question, how long is your decore if you want to wrap 6 inches. I'm finding if i Clapton 12 inches then i end up wasting quite a bit. I know there's a ratio to work from but u can't remember it. Thanks.
