Default Boro Newbie Thread

This is the discussion and show and tell thread for the Boro Tutorials posted in this thread:

http://www.lampworketc.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=71430

Please limit discussion to this thread so we can keep the tutorials easy to find in the tutorial thread.

I'll be adding the tutorials from our first couple of months over on WC this week. Feel free to ask questions or show us your work!

Quick question...

If we frequent both WC and LE do you want us to post our pics in both forums?

Jodi

It's up to you Jodi. I think we have some that visit only one and some of us that visit both so I'd say yes so everyone can benefit from everyone else's experiences. I don't mind seeing things twice!

Wonder if that style of butterfly would work for Beads of Courage, or if they want more of a "bead" rather than the loop on the wing? I have a whole dish of ghastly mutant butterfly beads, and I'm starting to despair of ever getting decent ones.

Here is one of my first butterflies from Kare's Tut. He was done with GA Tequila Sunrise and Momka Exotic Citrus Grapefruit. ( yea his body and face look like a alien) Sadly he and the heart in this picture are no more, they were lost in the great dog attach of Oct.

If there is something you specific you would like to see let DawnT know. There are also some additional links over on the WC boro tutorial page that we haven't moved over yet(in the Glass tech forum).

I've been struggling with butterflies but I think I'm improving. This is what came out of the kiln this morning -- and the photography still needs work as well.



I couldn't even get a halfway decent image of my most recent implosion but here's another heart -- they're getting plumper and more heart-like.



And, I do like the bead on the mandrel for loops but I'm determined to figure out how to do a free-form loop as well... but, as you can see, more PPP is needed.

Beckah they both look great! I am still trying to learn the loops as well. I have just been using the bead method and trying to make sure it's melted together REALLY well!

Thanks, Dawn! As I look at the photo again, I didn't get the colors true. I was pretty happy with the colors that I got out of the amber purple (I'm not sure which one I used) in the butterfly but it's not showing up very well in my photo. I guess it's time for another visit to Scott's excellent levels tutorial in the darkroom!

Thanks, Jodie for the link.

I don't see a picture of the tool. Do you have a picture of it?

I would also love to see a tutorial from you Pipyr!
Thanks!
