Default Refillable Boro Pen Tutorial

This tutorial will provide step by step instruction to make a blown glass boro pen with a refillable cartridge. You should have intermediate to advanced skills for this project and have the tools, torch and oxygen to work with Borosilicate Glass. Soft glass could also be used, but would be recommended for decorative purposes only.

Intermediate to Advanced - Experience lampworking is required.

Chis what a wonderful tutorial, I LOVE it! Chris if you have ever seen me seed bead you know I donít do tiny well. So I took your idea in a different direction and downsized the tubing and put marbles on top. Iím calling them my Marble Pens. Once I made a few I thought wow I can put anything on top that I want so I made a fish and a heart pen for Beads of Courage. Talk about FUN, thanks Chris.
