You will receive a highly detailed and lavishly photographed tutorial describing in great detail the techniques that I use to create these watery beauties. I'll take you along as I make one of these beads, giving detailed explanations for each step. (The bead in the third photo is the actual tutorial bead that we'll create.)

You will also receive two additional smaller tutorials, "Making Tiny Implosions in Soft Glass", and "Hollow Illusion" cane. If you've never created an implosion with soft glass, I'll show you how!

These tutorials are all based on 104 COE glass, and include information on the glass colors, tools, and materials etc. that I use.

They are intended for the soft glass artist who has some experience on the torch, but one of the great features of this tutorial is that it's sort of a buffet of techniques; you can decide which ones to use...or you can cram them all into a single (possibly crowded!) bead!

All techniques are done with a mixed fuel type torch.

This electronic file will be sent to you in a pdf. format, and you will need the free program Acrobat to view it. The file size is just under 3mb.

If you wish it to be sent to an email address that is different than the address that you use for Paypal, please let me know! I'll send the file as fast as possible after I receive your payment, depending on time zones it could take as long as 8 hours, but it will likely be much faster.
