Last night I made myself get somewhat "serious" about trying to use murrini. This thread really helps. Soon I will be trying the beautiful butterfly murrini I got from Ryan. Thank you everyone.

The last set uses all the freebie murrini sent by generous murrini makers. You can see how different murrini react in a different way. Some stay crisp while others blur more.

Sorry to be such an image hog, but I just love using murrini!
Carolyn, on the beads that are pressed with the murrini, do you put the murrini on before you press or after? Sounds like a dumb question but I just have to wonder how you would keep the shape if put on before the press.
thanks,

Ryan's butterfly murrini is unbelievable. I have no clue how he manages to get such detail. De's fish and shells are next on my shopping list - as soon as I get some more money. I also have murrini from Jet Age Studio, Avenue Beads, Double Helix and a few other suppliers. You can't go wrong with these suppliers.
