Hey there Kimberly and Adrian ! ! ! Long time no see ! ! !
Life took a turn and glass and brass was put aside.
Just now have some time to get back to it.
Boy have I really missed this meduim.
Got to go at it slow since the """HOUSE""" takes top billing at the moment.
So will work on the little foot and get things together.
Oh by the way.........it's a left foot. Now I need to go and make a right one.

You guys take care
Bobby

I don't have a where to get tools section. I would love to make tools and sell them but my greater love is the glass. I love the creating process of the tools but am not really set up to make and sell them. Too many ideas too little time. But I will show you all of the steps so you can make one of your own.

I have great faith that Bobby will show us a wonderful tutorial on "how to" make this - and I'm really looking forward to trying it! I think this will open up some neat "idea" possibilities once we get the general descriptive...I already have a bunch swirling around in my head of alternative designs...

Thanks again, Bobby, for offering to show us the steps to make this stamp ourselves! I admit I wanted to take the "short cut" and asked Bobby if one could be MADE for me, too - but I totally understand that the fun is more in the "using", and you deserve precious time to "play" with glass too!!!!

Looking forward to giving it a try - I've got my "YOU CAN DO IT" hat on!!!

I can see endless possibilities for carving that brass button-shaped thing into tools for pressing glass! I can hardly wait to find out exactly what that it is and how she did the carving, what kind of handle is the foot being held in, etc. Thanks Bobby for your generous spirit in sharing your great ideas! I'm not particularly interested in the footprint motif, but the possibilities for the technique in general are just tremendous~



(I wanted to find a "hats off to Bobby" smiley, but there wasn't one!)

Believe me ... I TOTALLY understand about the love of glass and only so much time in the day.

That is SOOOO kind and generous of you to offer us a tutorial on how to make your little tool treasures. May the skies rain hoards of silver glass on you (better get a good umbrella) LOL.

Thanks a million in advance!!!
Cheryl
