I love the blue flower in the last photo. Just gorgeous toning.

Here's a shell I made on Saturday that I was pleased with.

Hi everyone. I've just recently been able to get back to my love of glass. This is what I have been playing with. I sure could use any advise given on how or what to use to get my pedals thinner.

Paula, I saw demo at the International Flameworking Conference in NJ where David Willis made petals out of tubing, flattening bubble but keeping hollow and then separating at edge to make 2 petals that are thin. I have not tried this technique.

PaulaP - Try blowing shards and using those as petals. If you blow a bubble you can control your thickness. Your flowers are lovely and really do have the pattern of a rose's petal. Love your colors as well - nice and light.
