Default Baroque CG Bead Roller

Does anyone have any tips for getting the glass right out to the edge of the baroque bead roller and having it look good.

If you go to the cgbeads website: http://cgbeads.com , scroll down to the 9/12/2014 entry. It is all about getting good ends on that shape.

I find that using the larger cavity of which ever size you are doing helps to shape the basic bead, and going back and heating the sides a little and rolling in the smaller one helps define those ends. Also, not starting with a really round shape but one that is a little flatter so there is already a little more glass on the side. HTH!

I'm using the baroque beadroller for the press game right now . I've found if you make a barrel bead 1st your ends will fill out, then go back and load more glass in the middle to fill in the fuller area of the bead.

Have fun! I love this beadroller

Just jumping in to say how much I love all my CG Beadrollers. The graphite that Donna uses is the finest quality, and the cavities are cut very cleanly. The Baroque is one of my favorites.
