Thanks Deb - means a lot coming from you. I'm so obsessed with them I ordered a full case of 12mm tube. Made about 50, and the learning curve wasn't too steep. Best of all, I learned more about color reaction doing these more than anything else I've done so far.

George, the snail on the mushroom looks great! Did you watch the Su Ellen Fowler live feed on Corning's website? I was in that class. She does amazing work!

Love the colors in your shells too! All boro?

Thanks George, its actually Chinese red pulled from 1/2" rod. It seems to develop some crystals when struck. The color on your shells is so rich, do you use one brand in particular?

As far as the moisture in the blow tube, I wonder if an inline desiccant filter would work? Not sure if it would with low volume/low pressure but for $10-15 it might be worth a try

No L, I mix it up a lot when choosing color; as I implied, I'm trying to understand them better rather than just accumulating more. Even though I've got most of the NS line, I usually find myself reaching for Momka or Tag lately. In just about every shell I've made (about 60 now), I back the color with Asian white. GA's sparkle colors are intriguing me now also...

Those are absolutely beautiful. I remember you. I have the same issue. It's been so long since I've posted my work, I'm not sure many people remember me either. I've been tied up in that Waco lawsuit and my lawsuit in Burleson county,Texas. Maybe someone will remember these seahorses I made three years ago? I'm trying to start boro sculpting again. It's been a long time so it's going to be somewhat like starting over. Ugh!
Lets see if I can even remember how to post a photo.

Those seahorses are amazing - each one is a little piece of art so glad you came back to share.
