Well Dave if someone didn't know that that was a screwed up wigwag, they would just think it was a really cool pendant, which it is.

Yes I agree, Bernhard needs to start selling his pendants, not putting them in a box, It's just not fair to the pendant, it wants to be out there getting compliments.

My latest marble using gold and silver fuming - I'm pretty stoked. 1 1/4" - kind of looks like smoke rings.

Hi Roberta! wow that marble is killer. Love it! Wish I could fume, but alas, no gold, no silver, and no idea how to do it. Maybe I'll find a class someday.

Another great bear Marcel, and whoa I didn't know you made marbles Bernhard,
that is a really nice one, gold on the top silver on the bottom, I assume? There is something about fuming that is so magical, nice work guys!

Good luck with the vortex marbles Bernhard, but try to remember how you get some of these attempts on the way cause I think they are pretty awesome.

Default Need some help where in flame

I need to know where to put the object to be fumed. I can see the fumes as I come up under the flame, but it doesn't seem to be depositing consistently on the Maria or the button.

Thank you for your help.

Sue

Hello yall! First one is a silver and gold fumed wigwag. The second is a silver fumed honeycomb. Mmmmmm love honeycombs! Thanks for looking.



So many different angles to get the different colors but here is a good one to show how deep the honey comb is.

Hi Sara, The fume on the left is a failed attempt at a wigwag design. Look at Phat Pats post (67) for a better example. Basically what I did was, fume a tube (22mm), then laid down straight lines of clear. Punty the end of the tube. Starting at the point where you put your clear glass, heat and make a 1/4 turn of the tube. Move up a bit and rotate the tube in the opposite direction. Turn the tube in another 1/4. I did this 2 more times and then heated and terminated the end. Try to keep the end centered(Which I didn't). Heat from the tip and collapse the design. When they turn out right they look like Phat Pats. This is as close as i have come to getting the wigwag right. Practice, practice, practice

thank you for the very in depth description. i am tooled up with the tubing and the metal balls. did you use silver or gold? see, i am a fuming newbee, my guess is that you can tell by the color tones but i don't know which is which. i am also guessing you put the clear lines on the outside of the tube since putting them inside would be impossible? yes? this seems a bit advanced for me. i make beads and want this kind of fumey, ethereal look in beads. hummmm

Hi Sara, I fumed, first silver, then gold. Make sure you have good ventilation and a mask. Breathing heavy metals is not good for you. Yes the clear is on the outside of the tube. You can fume your beads. For silver use a reducing flame, for gold, an oxidizing flame.
have fun,
Dave
