Default Rose murrini tutorial

It is pretty simple to make the rose. here is a supply list for a pink rose with red outline.

2 pink pastel rods
1 red pastel rod
1 green rod
1 black or brown rod
1 thick old scummy clear rod
2 chop sticks or 1/8" mandrels
BBQ mashers or equivilant

Heat the end (under 1/2") of a pink rod, gently squish into a hotdog shape
very thinly case in red make sure you DO NOT cover the tip of the rod. Take the other pink rod lay down a strip of glass about 1/3 the way around the hot dog, the middle part of this layer being slightly thicker than the beginning and end. Thinly case with red.starting about 1/3 of the way on top of the one you just did start your next petal and repeat step 1. continue this all around and round til you build this up as thick as you are comfortable pulling. When you have as much as you want then lay down a good stripe of green then a narrow stripe of black then green again for a leaf. Cap this with a good amount of clear and attach the chop stick/mandrel. Burn off the pink glass and do the other end. Heat your glass up by directing the heat on one side then the other but not directly in the middle, make sure you are turning your handles evenly YOU DO NOT WANT TO TWIST YOUR DESIGN. When the glass is nice and evenly HOT and moving come out let it get a little skin and pull, WITHOUT TWISTING. There you go.
try to make sure you don't cover your end so when you get lost on what petal you are on you can look at the end of the rod and see where you left off.
after each petal smooth the glass a little before the next is started so you don't trap bubbles. Try to keep your bundle fairly round shaped, I do this with the big mashers very gently.
when heating up your gather at the end come out of the heat on and off tho let the heat base sink in and build.
this is what you get, hope you like and can understand these instructions

When you look at the cane from the end, you can see that each "petal" is formed with a lump of glass, in this case pink. Just that lump covers approximately a third of the circumference of the cane, just pick out an individual petal, and look at whats under it as a solid rod, that might better explain it.

Chrisann, I like this tutorial and I'd love to try it, but for the life of me I don't get the "squished hot dog" thing. I can't picture the shape and how I orient it...
Can you help me please? thanks & hugs

Lynnie,
I would just be a tube kinda shape squished down a little with a curve in the center. You don't really even need the curve. The way I actually do mine is make the tube flatten it, thinly case, heat, crease the center, heat, fold in on itself. It is a little harder cause it's a fairly small pc of glass but it makes that nice curl in the center of the rose. But even a round tube shape will work, just play with it.
Hummingbird, this murrini is very simple that is why I posted it first. The thing that makes it so simple is that you do the entire thing at once without having to add components into the mix. It does however give you the gist of what a murrini is, ie a built up picture.
koko, thanks for the explanation, perfect!
