I've had some stuff going on here so I haven't really been able to torch in the last few weeks. I hope to get back on track this week and get back to testing glass. I still have a month or more of testing and then I can start compiling it all. In other words...it will be awhile!

amy (or anyone else that knows) - without giving away the info in the tutorial itself, can you tell me which technique I would use to storm TAG Wicked? The first technique discussed or the alternate one for certain glasses?
thanks,
laura

Laura,
I've never used that glass before. But I can tell you how I approach working with a new glass color. I usually start out by doing the traditional storm technique and see how the glass behaves. If not much is happening or the storming won't "stick" then I'll switch over to heavy storming. Some glass won't do either well.

For those that have the new odd lots of DH glass that are lime green, they like heavy storming. It's what I used in these dots.

Dang Kevan...that's gorgeous! It looks like a blazing fire inside each dot.

Beautiful Kevan!

I want the new tut. My son just got into Mothra and Godzilla stuff and that webbing technique would make great Mothras!

I finally got back to testing glass colors today so it's coming along again. And you know you're my HH tutorial tester Amber so you'll be one of the first to get it....whether you like it or not.

I purchased this tutorial some time ago and I have to say, the response I get when people see a bead with something stormed on it is awesome!! Thanks Amy.

It's a ton of work to test all of this glass with my many webbing techniques so I'm thinking end of January to mid February. I'm hoping at least...

Oh drool. Can't wait!
Have your BHBs picked up at all on Etsy since they made you take that tag off them? Can you share what you've done, if so?

Thanks Hannah!

Sales have picked up on bhb a little but I'm not sure it's because of anything I've done. I did do a tag overhaul and used bhb, big hole bead, large hole bead, euro charm bead and european charm bead. I still use "fits troll bracelet" and "fits trollbeads" too. Also when someone asks if my beads will fit on their Pandora bracelet I educate them about the changes Etsy is making so they know how to search for all of us.
