Traveling "Borohood" Game: Part 2
 
Jo has given her blessing to have another so......

I had such a good time in the last, I thought we could have another round!

This is for BORO ONLY!

Are you new to boro and want a challenge?
Are you an old pro at boro and want a challenge?
Do you want to make some new friends?
Do you want to add to your bead collection?
Do you just want to have some fun?

If you answered yes to any of these, then come and join us!


Here's how we play:

* Depending on how many sign up, we will divide up into smaller groups

* I will make something

* I will then package up a few ingredients

* Both the item and ingredients are sent to the first person in line

* That person will use ONLY the ingredients sent to make something

* That person will package up a few ingredients

* That person will send both the item they made and their ingredients to the next person in line



Rules:


* So the other game can wind down, sign ups are going to be open until June 3.

* You must use some of every ingredient you are sent in ONE item. You may make extra if you want.

* Clear is the only ingredient you can add to what you are sent.

* When you receive your item and ingredients, please post a picture of what you received....we all want to live vicariously!

* You can make anything you want. Beads, marbles, sculptures, vessels, pendants, paperweights, pens....if you can dream it, you can make it!

* You don't have to send full rods, shorts are fine.

* In addition to rod color, optional ingredients may also be frit, dichro, fuming metal, twisties, opals, tubing....anything you want, as long as it is compatable.

* The list will be randomly drawn just like last time.

* Newbies, Beginners, Intermediates, and advanced are all welcome! It's not about your level of success...it's all about expanding your comfort zone!

* I know life happens, but let's try to keep it to under a week turn around. If something is going on, let us know....I find the glass community pretty supportive.



Please sign up in the thread, then send me a PM with:
LE nickname
Real Name
Postal address

I will start a thread after this one to add names too, then edit it when the sign-ups are closed with the lists.

This is my first time hosting a game and I hope I can do it as well as Jo did, she is awesome!

Sign ups begin now!

I want to play

slcuniques 2007-05-13 9:45am

Jana, I sent you my info in a PM.
I have a question.. Can we send Swarovski crystals or are they not compatable with Boro? I know silver is but not sure of Crystals.

jana 2007-05-13 10:38am

I am not sure....I don't remember seeing crystals in boro....I have opals though....that would be a question for the boro gods!

Anyone know?

Q. Are you new to boro and want a challenge?

A. Not really. I'd like a challenge though.

Q. Do you want to make some new friends?

A. Sure.

Q. Do you want to add to your bead collection?

A. YES, I don't already have 8,000,000 beads laying around!! Ha ha. Well, we do, but it would be neat to have boro beads made by someone here.


Sandy, you might be thinking of CZs? You can use those with soft glass, but not boro as far as I know.

Swarovski Crystals are leaded soft glass! The only way to mix them with boro would be like with glue or something. Definite cracks if melted together.

What you can use with boro is gilson opals - check out http://www.profoundglass.com/current_gilson.html

Hey Jan. I have more shorts than I want. PM me and I'll send you some. I bought a Glass Alchemy "bag-O-bits" a while back and it drives me bonkers to have all those unmarked short around. I would be glad to send a couple of big handfulls to you so you can play and play.


Oh, yeah.... I wanna play too. I might even video it. :grin:
