Talking FREE tubing implosion videos...

These are not my DVD quality videos... they are just quickie freebies so you can get some extra tips on how to do this technique. I plan to cover this in depth and with much better quality video on my 3rd DVD. This was filmed on my daughter's Flip...

At any rate, this is the pendant I made... I didn't show the last steps with the hole and elongating the pendant. I will in future free vids.



Preping the tubing... pulling point and blowing the bubble...

http://vimeo.com/6302328

Drawing the design and reducing the bubble to make the pendant...

http://vimeo.com/6303406

Enjoy and if you have any questions, just ask...

So today after seeing this, I went to the store, and PLAYED!!! Since I don't have any tubing in 104, I blew a large bubble on the end of a hollow mandrel....I had some kinda fun let me tell you! Had to make a few modifications, did some over the top good stuffs! Not nearly as nice as yours Brent, but hey.....I'm getting there! Thanks again! Pictures soon, stuffs still in the kiln

Thanks Brent! Great video! BTW, I like the mess on the table, adds to the realism of the video.

Love the way you cover the material... I'll be buying all your DVD's even if I already know the techniques. I always learn something, and it's fun to watch you melt stuff.... But isn't it a bit soon to be talking DVD # 3? Where's DVD # 2

Dear Mr. Brent Graber,
I have seen these videos and I must tell you that at the end of the implosion piece I can not even see the design. The quality of this video is questionable.... what did you use to record this? Your daughter's flip video recorder or something?

Haha! Just busting your chops bro! I happen to KNOW you recorded them on your daughters flip recorder. I also know the high tech lenses and cameras you use for your DVD's

Having had the good fortune to see you do these in person I don't have to see the end result, I know how nice they are and how tight your tubing implosions are I just can't ever pass up a chance to bust your chops buddy! What are friends for?

By the way, on a serious note.... you don't have to give these tutorials out for free, I for one sincerely appreciate that you do this.

Otter

Yeah... the quality of these two videos is DEFINITELY questionable!

They were quick and easy... and FREE!

The Flip does an OK job of shooting regular video, but it won't show hot stuff with much detail. The brightness just doesn't agree with this cheap camera.

I am trying to get some of my good equipment back, so I can shoot another DVD quality video... I probably shouldn't loan it out for trips to Costa Rica, but I can't say no to a friend... when I get some of it back, I'll shoot more HiDef footage and get to work on another DVD.

Thanks for the encouragement and the hard time... love ya man.

What do you guys want to see next?

I was thinking about doing a free soft glass demo as well. I can do a dark ivory organic bead... I use silver and gold to fume it... you probably haven't seen them from me before, but I make a lot of obscure stuff that never gets posted online. These are the things I'd like to do vids on... fun fun fun stuff!

Let me see if I can get a picture of what I'm talking about...

These videos of yours are inspiring and your generosity always touches my heart. You are such a blessing (may I say blessing?) to me and I'm sure so many others.

You also keep me from wanting to sell my boro no matter how hard times get.

Thank you for doing this. The videos are great and very informative. Also you don't have to apologize for your creative gathering of glass on your work bench.

You're welcome everybody!

I've decided not to do any more videos with the Flip... seems it might confuse people as to the quality of my DVDs for sale... so I will still do some free videos, but I will shoot it with my good camera. It'll be a little more work, but you guys are soooo worth it.

I wanna see pics of your pendants!

Awe Brent you are the best. I so want to do this. Only my minor just wont push the heat as much as the other torch does. I only have to 5lpms. So that just won't do it.

Please to the torch Gods. I need something bigger. Please. So I can do this.

Awesome. Thanks for the tut. They are awesome.
