View Full Interactive Version Of This Page : my first implosions....interesting:D
Well the colors look absolutely fabulous! Now I need to improve on my implosion skills, they where so much fun to do ( thanks to Cosmo's tutorial)
( picture taken in the shade, not tweaked)
( same pendants, taken in direct sunlight, not tweaked)
These have not been in my kiln yet so I am very curious what will happen to the colors when I do anneal them
Also I have a question, I wanted to have a litle flower in a big flower implosion but I did something wrong, do I have to work the other way around when making two flowers in one, first an outer ring, implode and then the inner ring?
Nice job Suzanne! You should be proud! Oops I forgot to say: I LOVE the color in the loop, nice touch!
I haven't made an implosion since Smiley's class, eek. Maybe I'll give it a go sometime soon ;)
Over the Moon
Wow Val I had to check again, I thought someone had stolen your avatar, roflol! I thought who the hell is Over the Moon:D
They look awesome. Implosions are something it will take a little while to control and know just what design to place on the maria to get an effect you are after. Just keep playing. These are very nice and sellable. It's always nice when you can get paid to experiment. ;)
Suzanne, looking great! Wish I could help with the question, but I bet one of the gurus will pop in so we can all benefit from their inifinite boro wisdom. :)
One thing that will help if you want the design you are talking about is this...
Draw your first set of dots close to the center of the maria. Then draw your second close to the edge of the maria. As you are heating it, heat it gently and marver gently. That will keep the dots more straight up and down, and not make them "bloom" like a flower. Do that a couple times until they get imploded nicely. Once you get them melted in, you can give it a little more heat and press harder to make it more into a flower. But, you want to wait and do that last. That helps the flower maintain the shape.
Thanks Chad! I think I placed the dots to close together, I kinda used the moretti way. I will definetly play with this some more, this was a lot of fun!I
