Default Need a Lotus flower tutorial

Can anyone point me in the direction of a lotus leaf tutorial? Or is this just so simple I should be able to figure it out my self? Trust me I am not having any luck there.

It would help to know what you are making and what type of glass and maybe how big. Inside pattern, outside pattern...... I think your question might just be too vague..

Marble, bead, sculptural? Borosilicate, soft-glass?

Any images of something similar??

Just the leaf, or the flower, too? The leaf looks really simple. Just do a search on Water Lily. The flower looks a bit complex, but you could probably do it. You've got skilz! I'll give it a try later tonight.

soft glass, bead size 8-12mm, design on the indside of the bead. I'm thinking it has to be similar to doing a striped bead but am having problems getting the point to the leaf and layering it. It's turning HUGE 24mm and not right.

Thanks Nette, I may have skills but right now I'm not sure if they are lampworking skills!

Maybe you mean the beads that look like a head of clover? Sort of like the beads above but with much smaller petals in larger quantities with bubbles on each one? I think Anastasia has made beads like that and I know I have seen an inquiry on those beads before. Just cant find the link. I dont think the person asking ever got an answer tho.

Also, Loribeads made some super cute lily pad beads once and she posted a how to, but I can't find it. I know she used the fish scale technique for the flowers.

Found it!! Post 18 has the how to: http://www.lampworketc.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=38464
