I did apply some heat to the encasement after I put it on there so that it wouldn't pop off before I could take a picture of it! Looking at the bead I can see a little ripple where I started and stopped. To get a nice even coat from start to finish does take practice and I don't think it's critical to the success of the bead. As long as it's not hugely drastic i.e. a huge bulge on one side with a thin trail on the other. Small inconsistencies can be evened out with heat. Glass flows and as long as it doesn't have to flow too much too far, you'll be fine!

Thank you so much for this tutorial! Being a newbie I just had to try it. The yellow one was my first and I didn't get the encasement on well, but the others are not too bad. Thanks again!

Candy, thanks for the private lesson! (I wrote to Candy because I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong.) I think I'm on the way! Here are my attempts from last night. I still need tons of PPP, but that's the fun part!

Wonderful tutorial!!!!!

Now, can you tell us how to get 2 the same size? LOL!!! Or should we figure on having 20 or so to keep our bead boxes full?

Hugs,

Sara

My first attempt - it needed thicker encasement to make it all the way to the ends! These are fun - Thanks again!!!

k, how long does it take for you to make one ?? I'm either scorching my clear to melt it fast, or taking SOOO LOOOOOONG to melt it right....perhaps i'm making mine too big.

Thank you so much Candy for sharing this. I wished I'd seen it before I went out to the torch though. I will definately be trying this next torch session. Love you beads BTW!!

Thanks Candy, great tutorial.

Ana Maria



QUOTE=beadgoodies;1569066]Here's how I make my encased triangle beads!

I used periwinkle, transparent dark purple and clear.






finished bead!


Some tips…

Start with a *small* base. These beads can get big without you realizing it! Remember, you’ll be thickly encasing it when you’re all done.

Keep your dots along the side edge of the bead, but not too close to the hole.

Always melt down the previous row completely before applying more glass.

To add depth, use twice as much transparent glass as opaque. This doesn’t mean make your transparent dots twice as big, however. Just add another row on top of the previous row. Like this:


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Be creative and have fun!
