Default Toad Bead Tutorial - LavenderCreek

Well, it's finally ready! It's only taken me a year to get'r done

This tutorial is the next installment in my Sculpting with Glass Series. It uses many of the skills and techniques learned in my goddess bead tutorial and expands on them, while also introducing you to more advanced sculptural techniques.

I hope you will find it to be not only a fun step-by-step project but also a helpful learning tool.

I'm selling the tutorial through my Etsy shop, you can find it here.

Attention:
For people who have taken an actual class with me I would like to offer the tutorial at a bit of a discount. Send me an email if you're interested.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update: For everyone who has bought the tutorial as of May 17th, I just sent out a supplimental .pdf file, which contains "images only" (for easier printing and use while at the torch). I've sent it out to everyone but if for some reason you didn't get it, let me know. As of today it will be sent along with the original tutorial so everyone will receive it.
---------------------------------------------

****I will hold a drawing for the first 25 people who buy a tutorial. The winner will receive one of my toad beads!****
I'll let you know who wins just as soon as I've done the drawing

Update: Ok I have my 25 people now. In an hour or so I will do the drawing and let you know who wins the toad!

Drawing Winner! I threw all the names into a bowl, mixed them up and had Peer draw out a name...the name he chose was....

Mary Beth Callaghan! (Novembersfyre)
Congratulations Mary Beth, I'll send you an email shortly!

By the way, the toad in the picture is not the toad I am sending, the toad in the picture is the one that is featured on the cover page for my tutorial. So, the toad I am sending will be a surprise :O)

Hi Penny!

I can't wait to see some toads from you! I'm so happy that we were able to finally get it finished today. Enjoy!

Hi DeAnne, it's my pleasure, thanks for being so patient!

Ok, it's getting late here so I'm off to bed now. I'll get new orders sent out just as soon as I get up in the morning!

Hi, Teresa! The tutorial is wonderful. I tried to reply by email but my mail got returned undeliverable at your email address...I don't know why. I just wanted you to know how much I have learned form the goddess tutorial, but I don't have any photos. It is so fabulous to get to a point where people don't say "oh, that is from Teresa's tutorial!" Thank you for teaching so much to us! Penny

Hi Penny, that's weird that you couldn't send me an email, my mails seem to be working ok. I'm really thrilled that you got so much from the goddess tutorial! I hope you will enjoy this one just as much

Litsayn and Jen, thank you! Yes, I'm collecting all the names for the drawing so good luck
I've changed the number of entries to 25 though, because 50 seems like too many so we should have a winner in the next day or so...wheeeee!

I just reviewed this tutorial - and I've gotta say it's the most thorough tut I've ever seen!!! Great attention to detail and wonderful descriptions. I love the "instant bum" - giggle! Too cute!!!

Teresa,
What I love about your tutorials is that they go into the heat control and sculpting method "hands on". I have had several "Ah Ha" moments working with your tutorials. Thank you for doing this.
Mary Beth CONGRATULATIONS !

I can't believe I won!!! I'm so excited! Thank you Teresa! I'll be looking forward to getting him!

Although, I was a winner just by purchasing this wonderful tutorial - it's so nicely done.

This has just made my day (and week)

Wow, thank you everyone for all the wonderful feedback! I'm so happy that you all are finding the tutorial useful in more ways than just a step-by-step project, that was my intent with this series so I feel great!
I am now trying my best to wait patiently for the first toadies to make their appearance on the forum
