I used his tutorial for soft glass too. The steps work the same in both types of glass. Soft glass just implodes faster and you can loose control easier.

Default Floral Implosion Pendant

Thank you very much for putting this together Ron, very well done and thank you so much for the updates.

Here is my pendant, it's the first one with spiral Cs. It's amazing how wonderful the simple cane works.

What do I need to do to make my flower bigger and fill the frame? I'm making pendants not marbles, I was concerned when I domed rather than rounded the top that that cause the excess clear on edge.

All the best,
Julie

Julie,
Very Nice!
The amount of clear around the flower really comes down to how large the maria "flat disk" is that you start with. Start with a smaller gather on the end of the rod.
*** This goes both ways... there is a version of the implosion that I use a 38mm
rod to make a 2" marble. The pattern is applied normal size on the massive maria. The end result is a small flower in the center of a lot of clear. I need to look for a picture of
one to show....

Tutorial received.

Great production value, really clear and concise.

This will take my sad implosions to a new level.

Thank you.

I just ordered mine! I can't wait to get my marble, praying that it is the color combo in post 167, the purple/red/blue. LOVE IT!!!

I ordered one and never got a marble.
I think he may not be doing that anymore,
but I wish he was.


ETA-When I originally ordered my tutorial it was during a time where the
marble giveaway promotion was changing.
I thought I was getting a marble because my order was right on
the cusp.
Once I read the entire thread I realized that the deal had transitioned,
and at that point I didn't expect to get one.
Sorry that my original reply was so bitchy and incomplete.
I am not the most elegant communicator at 2:30 am.
As you can imagine, Ron had been swamped with tutorial orders,
and the marble promotion became it's own part-time job (my wording, not his).
I must say, it is an excellent tutorial with totally clear directions, diagrams and recipes.
Thanks for sharing the secrets, Ron.

I did make marbles in the beginning, but the response was much larger than what I could keep up with, so I lowered the price and didn't include the marble anymore.

istandanlone24/7.... Thanks for the comments. My goal was to go beyond teaching a technique, but to really give all the information on why and how implosions work. When someone has complete understanding on how the color is going to move and stretch, many new doors open and the techniques can be taken to endless new directions.

Have fun and please keep in touch!
Ron

i went from making implosions that look like Clown Crap, to this:

not perfect, but for a lampworker who's only been doing this since late February, i'm happy.

Ron, do you have a tutorial on the spiral C's? I have your book on implosions/galaxies. Is there an update on spiral C's? If not, I'll see you in one your classes someday if you'll let me know when you're having another class!

I just took Ron's Implosion Class, even though I had previously ppurchased his tutorial. I just REALLY need to say that Ron is an awesome teacher. I have been seriously torching for 7 years and in this class I learned little things that are going to greatly improve my creations!
Ron gives you waaaaay more than your money's worth! I highly recommend taking a class with him or at the very least, purchasing his tutorial!

Hi Rachel,
The tutorial ends with Tube implosions and fuming. If you have that, then you have all the add-ons.
Thanks!
Ron

i've a question regarding tubing implosions.....when i first design the implosion on the bubble and then start to melt in and implode the lines....do i keep the same angle i would as with a rod?
maybe i'm using too much heat but when i start to implode, my bubble collapses way too much to get it into a maria shape.

i know your tut covers this...and i have the tut, but for some reason i can't seem to get it down right.
