Hi All

Good morning everyone. I was looking through the threads for a floral marble tut, and found one, but the link listed no longer works. I've been searching, but with no luck, I was wondering if anyone knew of a link or maybe an old tutorial on them. I've never made one before and would love to try.

Would marble beads also be considered "off mandrel"?

check these out... http://glassbysabina.com/portfolio/marbles.html

Sabina is a friend of mine and I remember when she started doing these at an event at Momka's.. I believe she won 1st place at a flame-off last year in Oregon... I watched her make these... And Chris, yours, too, are real pieces of art..

Default I gave it a try

I had to give this a try even though my implosions have been iffy and I have no clue how to get the maria off the mandrel (my cold punties don't stay cold). I used an EDP encased in black for the wings and an yellow dotted with orange for the tail. I put the whole thing on a 10mm clear moretti because my hothead has a tendancy to melt the punty faster than the implosion. It worked better than my other attempts but I think I fried the clear a bit waiting for the 10mm to melt enough. My butterfly was elongating so I stuck some clear underneath it and pushed it up. It looks to me that if I had enough patience I could have kept heating and marving until I got the butterly pushed into the middle of the bead.

It looks almost like the black spread, because it appears to be almost the same color as the purple, only transparent.

But what a great job!! I'm too afraid to try....

I've tried a couple of these and the wings are just waay too thick, I want them thin and delicate....any suggestions? I've tried 1mm stringers too, and they still come out thick, maybe I'm mashing them flat before the implode?

Practice! Don't push the rod down to hard on the marver...a little more than just resting it might help.

Here is one I did in around November as you can see the more you do the better it gets

Wow! I just found this tut. Very beautiful work! I was wondering how did you made the third marble, the one with the butterfly on top of the flower. Very nice!
