I'm so excited to announce the release of my brand new tutorial "From My Studio to Yours - Volume Two"
PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU PURCHASE: Because all of the bead designs contained in my notes use silver glass, it is strongly recommended that you work on a surface mix torch that uses both oxygen and fuel for best results. You should have a good knowledge of working with various striking and reduction glass colors. Other techniques mentioned in the notes include encasing, raking, twisting the glass with a stringer and threading glass onto the surface of a bead. It is also assumed that by purchasing this tutorial, you have a good knowledge of all the basic safety precautions associated with making glass beads on an open flame torch.
"From My Studio to Yours" Volume Two is not a step-by-step tutorial showing you how to make just one bead, but more of a collection of photos and studio notes for some of my favorite lampwork bead designs using silver glass. I will show you a total of 75 of my favorite bead designs, listing all the glass colors used to make the beads along with a brief description of the steps I took to make the beads. I've also included technical notes on the subject of encasing your beads, silvered ivory frit, Raku, threading / drizzling (link to video included) and getting to know your glass. While most of the Technical Notes are repeated from my first tutorial, I thought it was important to include them in this tutorial as well.
Although my studio notes are written with the intermediate bead maker in mind, the color combinations and techniques I cover would be of interest to all skill levels.
Glass referenced in these notes include both 104 COE and 96 COE soft glass.
