Ryan, you are THE MAN!!! That is the cutest drawing ever...and that is exactly the technique I use! I have practiced and practiced...and now I can get the fish and butters and skullies and stuff to not smear at all!

I do a very, very light heating of the murrini before I do the marver press in...some times it takes 6 or more heatings to slowly, slowly push that little sucker in! But the patience on this step really pays off!

Good luck and hope you're having fun Terryl! We'd love to see pictures of your beads!
