Description

Making Mandala Beads is my fourth E-book. My Mandala-inspired beads are very intricate, layered disk beads. Incorporating different types of complex cane, they are great for improving your heat control, dot placement, gravity control and other technical abilities, providing you with lots of new and exciting possibilities!

The techniques in the E-book are demonstrated using Bullseye glass. You can definitely accomplish the same techniques in COE-104 glass, but I find that working with Bullseye makes life a bit easier. Besides, the colors of the Bullseye palette are just fantastic - and you know how much I love color! Since Bullseye may be unfamiliar to some readers, the E-book includes lots of tips and tricks for working with this glass, ideas to spark your imagination and a collection of my favorite Bullseye color combinations.

The first part of the book is dedicated to general information about Bullseye glass and its working properties. Then comes the tutorial section, which includes 6 step-by-step tutorials - 3 cane tutorials and 3 focal disk bead tutorials. At the end of the book, you will find the “Ideas and Inspiration” section - these pages contain variations on the techniques and ideas to spark your creativity.

List of Tutorials:

1. Spiral Murrini
2. Wig-Wag Cane
3. Ribbon Cane
4. Wig-Wag Mandala Bead
5. Ribbon Cane Mandala Bead
6. Spiral Murrini Mandala Bead

---------------------------------------------------------

The E-book is in PDF format. It is 87 pages long, and contains over 250 high-quality color photos. File size is 12.5MB.

The file is now downloadable through Etsy. If you have any trouble downloading after purchase, please contact me.

---------------------------------------------------------

Please Note: This E-book is not intended for beginner lampworkers. It does not cover basic beadmaking techniques.
It is assumed that you have knowledge and experience in basic making and shaping of beads, pulling stringers and using them, dot placement, encasing and basic cane-pulling techniques.

The glass referred to and demonstrated with throughout the E-book is all Bullseye, which has a COE of 90.
The techniques can be accomplished in other types of glass, such as COE-104, but Bullseye's working properties make things a bit easier.
The E-book includes lots of information, tips and tricks for working with Bullseye glass, as well as a collection of my favorite color combinations.
