How to Roll a Double Skin Joint
Want to roll an extra long joint? This technique does take some practice to do well, but it is dead easy to learn.
First off, we need three papers, though we won't be rolling with all three, the third will be used to actually help the other two stick together. Line the first two papers along their top edges behind each other - about a 15 mm overlap should be fine.
Flick the front paper foward with your forefinger, and lick enough sticky to glue the paper behind (fig.1) so far so good.
Glue the papers along their long edges.
Take the third paper and fold in half, with the gummed edges facing outwards.

Then take the third folded paper, and lick the gummed edge on both sides of the paper. This does requires some care otherwise you'll end up with a soggy mess. Now take the now gummed third piece, and place in between the two original papers, with the fold of the third paper to the top .
Place the third paper in between the other two papers
Flatten the two original pieces on top of the folded third, you should see the damp gum seep through into the papers on top and bottom. When this happens, carefully separate the three papers, completely removing the third, and push the original two back together.

The photo shows how the gum has seeped through the paper, both papers are now glued without the need for a third paper - magic!
Now go ahead an roll up that joint ! You'll find it's a bit trickier to accomplish due to it's length.
Need help, or have you perfected a revolutionary technique & wanna share it?
