Im not very sure, is this a book or a dvd and how many pages or how long is it please?

MagpieGlass 2010-12-30 2:04pm

It is a 13 page ebook. I bought it yesterday and is awesome. If you are floral implosion obsessed (like I am) it is too die for.

I received my copy by email probably less than an hour after I purchased it.

Here's the link to the extra details from the sales rack:

Thanks for the feedback. I have another page showing implosion patterns for roses, daffoldils, etc.... I should be emailing it out tomorrow.
Happy New Year!

Nitadee 2011-01-05 12:58pm

OOOO I just ordered this, cannot WAIT to try these.
Thanks for posting this and Laura, I foresee TONS of implosions from both of us :D :D :D

Nitadee 2011-01-06 3:31pm

I received mine today :D :D
Off to play, and Thanks Ron!

R4GlassStudio 2011-01-07 6:22am

The add-on page went out yesterday (1/6/11). All new tutorial orders will have the extra 2 pages as part of the main file.
I do plan on sending out another 2 pages next week too. Everyone who has the tutorial will also get that one, so please look for it.

R4GlassStudio 2011-01-10 10:34am

R4GlassStudio 2011-01-12 7:46am

more new colors

Nitadee 2011-01-12 2:25pm

Hi Ron! Wanted to say (out loud ;)) Thank you for the little "extras" you keep sending! I am so appreciative, you have NO idea!
Sometimes you sit down at the torch and the color combos go out the window, but with these new additions, there are more and more to choose from!
Thanks again,

R4GlassStudio 2011-01-13 6:32am

Thanks for the post! Look for more combos next week as well. I have some fun new directions I am working on.

Glenda's Art Glass 2011-01-13 7:47am

Ron, It was like Christmas all over again when I opened my mail yesterday and found more pages that you have added to the tutorial. I have been doing implosions for a while but I'm self taught and this tutorial has been a great tool for moving me forward and making my marble even better. I'm working on the orchid and it is a real challenge but I'm having lots of fun. Thank you so much for sharing so much information on your techniques and colors with us.


fourpawsglass 2011-01-13 11:46am

Ron - Thank you so much for the tutorials I have received so far. I had attempted imploded flowers but they came out looking like fried eggs! I can't wait to sit down at the torch and start new and to receive more pages. I'll be sure to post some pictures in this thread as soon as I get a few good ones made.

R4GlassStudio 2011-01-17 6:50am

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

sangell 2011-01-17 9:08am

Got my marble Saturday
Beautiful........... Can't wait for more updates. These are great formulas

killerbeedz1 2011-01-17 12:10pm

Is this done with boro or soft glass? If boro, do I need tubing?


Glenda's Art Glass 2011-01-17 12:39pm

Received the marble that you sent and it is beautiful. It Already has a place in my lighted display case. Thanks again for doing this turorial.


sangell 2011-01-17 1:31pm

Got my Marble, Holy Smokes...... Beautiful. Can't wait to get the latest updates. You are A#1 in my book.
I did Email you a question that I could use your assistance with.
Thank you again for all of your hard work and willingness to share.

R4GlassStudio 2011-01-18 2:55pm

Glad to hear you like the marbles. I have been making them non-stopthese past two weeks. I had no idea the response would have been this big.
Thanks to all of you for your nice comments and feedback. I am shipping
marbles out every day, so if you have not gotten your yet.... you will very soon.

Patsy ... the tutorial is done in boro and does not require tubing. It is all rod method of imploding.

Thanks Laura.


MagpieGlass 2011-01-18 4:34pm

You're welcome. Figured I wasn't divulging any deep, dark secrets with that.

The techniques can be worked in soft glass and I believe Ron said Rocio is working on a soft glass version. (soft just moves alot faster)

Fran Carrico 2011-01-18 6:30pm

Oooo. . . .keep us posted on the soft glass version!

Tropical Heat 2011-01-21 3:50pm

I just ordered this and I am so excited!!!!!!

R4GlassStudio 2011-01-25 3:00pm

more colors from last night

R4GlassStudio 2011-01-28 7:35am

Nimbus 2011-01-31 6:31am

Do you have a time frame on when the soft glass version will be available? If it is going to be awhile, I will probably purchase the boro tutorial now. I am hearing such great things about this tutorial that I figure I have to have one soon.


R4GlassStudio 2011-01-31 7:05am

Rocio has been working on other projects, so I think the soft glass one could be a few months out.

R4GlassStudio 2011-01-31 7:05am

Rose 2011-01-31 9:28am

I would like to chime in here and tell everyone that the tutorial is fabulous! But I must say, Ron goes the extra step if you need a question answered. This tutorial would work just as well for soft glass, you just need to use your imagination for color combos. Thank you Ron!

karin 2011-02-01 11:49am

Have not had a chance to try out the tutorial yet, but it looks wonderful. And I got my marble yesterday - oooh, to be able to do something like that, even as lovely simple a flower!

Tropical Heat 2011-02-02 3:36pm

I was very happy when I received the tutorial with all the wonderful information......I was thrilled when I opened a box that came in the mail today and found the marble Ron sent me!!!!!!!!!!!! I had forgotten about it so that made it that much more of a surprise! The marble is Huge, 1 1/4 inches, and the blue flower is out of this world! Thank you so very much Ron!

R4GlassStudio 2011-02-03 6:30am

Thanks everyone!
I have been making marbles non-stop for the past few weeks. The next update will have a few versions of the Morning Glory flower which will also teach a new tenchnique. Of course, there will also be a few more color combos shown as well.
Thanks for the feedback and please keep in touch with questions and pics of what you are making!

R4GlassStudio 2011-02-04 6:25am

An update is going to be mailed on Feb 5th (Sunday).

R4GlassStudio 2011-02-07 8:31am

The add-on is going out now. This one has Morning Glory flowers, how to use dots vrs twisty canes, double layering to create texture and most of all.... pastel pink flowers.

theglasszone 2011-02-07 10:00am

R4GlassStudio 2011-03-04 8:26am

new color combo

j2canoe 2011-03-04 2:30pm

I couldn't wait!! I had to get this one too!! WOW!! This is one HECK of a Tutorial!! :) I was so excited to get it that I read it before I left work and couldn't wait to get home!!! I'm going to try Ron's techniques in 104 and see what happens!! GREAT TUT!!! I can hardly wait for Roccio's too!!! I still can't get over how clearly illustrated and written this tut is!!!! Thanks, Ron!! :)

j2canoe 2011-03-04 4:27pm

It DOES work in 104!!! :)

Bobbo 2011-03-06 12:39pm

What a stunningly good tutorial!!

At first sight it doesn't seem to have that much content but just sit and read it all the way through and be amazed at all the gems of information it contains.

So much is now crystal clear that I was a bit hazy on and so much that I just didn't know.

This tutorial should come with it's own light bulb for you to hold over your head for the many a-ha moments it contains.

Can't recommend highly enough,


R4GlassStudio 2011-03-08 11:50am

Thanks for the feedback!
I had a request for "reds" so another update will be coming out soon.

PerfectDeb 2011-03-13 1:03am

Wow,didn't know this was available, mne mine mine!

R4GlassStudio 2011-03-14 6:58am

a few more reds...

R4GlassStudio 2011-04-05 7:38am

hannahbeads 2011-04-10 6:19am

Hi Ron
I have a minor and tanked oxy. Would these techniques work with this set up? I have been able to make "Mr.Smiley" hearts (about 1 1/4 x 3/4 inch). I hope you say yes, because I'm getting hooked on my limited supply of boro.
