Here is a test youtube video I did. It is a tutorial on an easy technique to make wings. I cut the video into two parts, each about 11 minutes long. The audio quality isn't great but hopefully it will come in handy.

You can also use this technique for fins, leafs, dragon manes etc.

Dude! It looks good, but don't you think your vent is kinda small?

That was neat, thanks! They could come in handy for so many things! I know people that would take you out back for knocking your punties off of a GTT though. :lol:

Jo, it is 10 inch ducting moving 900CFM, not sure that I need any more ventilation. I try to be real cognizant of that. Do you think I need more?

It's MY GTT and I'll abuse it how I want!!! hahahahaha for so many years I used Carlisle torches and this is a bad habit I have still. I used to have a torch mounted marver on all my Carlisles also so yeah... real bad habit I admit. B

Thanks for sharing.. Your bench looks a lot like Trev's (Except I think his has more STUFF/misc whatevers on it)

very cool. thanks for sharing! I need to try this technique out. I've been trying to figure out how to get some symetrical butterfly wings and this looks like a good way to make left and right look even. Just make two sets and put them together and I think I'll have a winner. you da man!

Hi Justin!! Good to see you around. That is the exact reason I started trying to figure out this technique. I wanted symmetrical wings. When I hit upon this I found it to be so simple. I hope you post your results.

This technique is like cornbread.... it's all good! Hahahaha I just can't help myself, sorry.

Thanks for the tutorial Otter! Tried it last night and it worked great. With both wings attached to the same punty its easy to get them to look alike. I'll try to post pics of my first wings with this technique soon.

I really want to! But on my little cricket with a concentrator? I don't get any color out of boro, just green-blue dark mud. Even the amber purples don't like me. :pout:

Steffi,
Your Cricket, even on a concentrator produces plenty of heat to strike boro. Also, you don't need to use striking colors for those wings.

I did this piece on a Mega Minor on a concentrator. The Cricket is a much hotter torch. This is amber purple over star white:

As Otter has said, you should have no problems. Read the numerous threads on this here and concentrate on flame chemistry and working the glass hotter than you really think you should. I am just learning the very basics of boro color and these two guidelines have helped immensely.

Otter here is my first attempt with your wing tut. I am very new with working with Boro and feel I am not a qualified canidate to show off your fantastic instruction but here goes. This was also my first time using the Mia Tia

Paula, way to go!!!! Great first attempt and look at the color you got in the Mai Tai! Good for you. Thank you for posting your wings here!

Oh heck no, it looks fine to me, I was just yanking your chain. The vent looks great to me!

Not to go off topic, but I was just curious, where do you have your makeup air source? I've been wanting to try setting up a funnel system on my bench but was told that the replenishment might be a problem.

Tom,
I actually have a very large door I open about 12 away diagonally from my work surface. I am currently making plans to bring in duct work under the table. Still from the same wall the door is on.

I can burn a bundle of sage on my work surface and you would never smell it in the room. My water can is about 8 inches behind my ventilation funnel and to the side... even any steam gest tucked right out. It really is a very efficient system.

I will try and get some pics ans send you them in a PM, give me a few days.

Oh wait..I don't have PM's turned on. Send me a private message via FB? Or just friend me :)

Nice video Otter. Thanks for sharing. If you don't mind my asking, which GTT torch is that?

snakebite
2011-07-06, 4:17am
What kind of torch are u useing ? Also what is the coe of the glass ? Yes I am new I am on a H H using 104 glass.. I am wanting to do figures and 104 does seem to breck a lot. Loved ur video...

Otter's Flame
2011-07-06, 3:29pm
Snakebite, I am using Boro COE 33. That particular torch is a Bobcat. I have a bigger torch but I like working on my Bobcat. I also teach people to cross over from 104 to boro and I like showing that smaller torches are fully capable of working boro and striking color.

I also teach 104 off mandrel techniques and I have made these wings in 104. I have not made them on a HH but there is no reason you cannot. Just scale down a little bit, be mindful of your heat control and where your flame is touching the wings.

Good luck and have fun!!

Otter, thanks for the tutorial, looking forward to giving it a try in COE 104.
