hee hee
I just preordered mine.
I've been working on a hothead but my big girl torch is on the way -
and I can hear the dark side calling me.

Mr. Smiley 2009-01-12 2:49pm

Sounds like a little whisper at first, but the dark side gets louder and louder. Boro is so much fun! Resistance is futile! :lol:

Mr. Smiley 2009-01-13 2:36am

Down to only 20 DVDs being offered at the discount. Who's gonna get a return of 20% in just a few weeks. This is a better investment than stocks. I guarantee it. :lol:

Deb 2009-01-13 8:14am

I preordered mine a few days ago. I can't wait to get this DVD!

My name is Deb, I've been drawn to the dark side, resistance IS futile!

Crazy Woman 2009-01-13 11:24am

Just preordered mine!!! Whoot!!!!

My name is Deb, I've been drawn to the dark side, resistance IS futile! lol..... My name is Crazy Woman, I've been drawn to the dark side, resistance IS futile!!!!!! I just looked at my profit (you got to be kidding) and loss statement and I spent more on boro last year than our week in Cozumel.... I guess I must admit defeat!

Love the pendants and PICK ME!!!! PICK ME!!!.... pretty please with sugar on top! \\:D/

Mr. Smiley 2009-01-13 11:53am

I think i spent more on boro than I did on food! :lol:

Mr. Smiley 2009-01-13 6:14pm

Got it Dan. ;)

Renee 2009-01-13 9:18pm

Just ordered mine, too! Gotta get those tweezers, though.:wink:

Mr. Smiley 2009-01-14 11:28am

Both types are way cool. I use them for different things. The Handy Andys are more, but they save you time. The Peters Tweezers are better for making a dainty hole. Love both and reccomend both, but if you can only afford one, go with the Peters. Then get the Andys later.

www.galacticglass.net for the Andys...

Crazy Woman 2009-01-14 11:32am

So great white boro master.... what's the trick to the Handy Andy's... I do the chicken dance and get a flaky ragged hole #-o ... I know it's me and not the Handy Andy's ](*,):-D

neagle 2009-01-14 11:37am

Just preordered mine! Have always wanted to really seriously work in boro, so I'm very excited about this!!
Thanks!

I use them where there is colored glass to hide that. I can't get it to flame polish out completely with clear. It does break up the glass inside, so I know why it gets crusty. I'm staying with Andy in a few weeks... I plan on asking him and making him show me. :lol: When I know the secret, I'll pass it along. ;)

Brent what size boro rods are used in the video. Right now I've only got up to about 7-8mm but need to order at least some 14mm for when Chads marble book gets here and figured I'd ask so if I needed something specific I can just place one order.
Thanks,
Donna

Crazy Woman 2009-01-14 1:59pm

Thanks, Brent! I thought it was just me.... no more clear loops for me!

14mm will work fine for what I demo in the video. ;)

Clear loops are an issue any time you try to drill a hole in it. It shows everything. If you need a clear loop, I suggest a shepherds hook (which I hate the look of) or you can squish a little bit of clear rod and flip in around. I could explain that last one, but it pretty much sucks too. :lol:

Drilling is the way to go... IMHO

Mr. Smiley 2009-01-15 1:57pm

The bubble mailers came in today. I'll be labeling them and getting ready for the DVDs... I'm so excited. :D I can't wait for you guys to get this and try it out. I see a lot of boro converts in the future! :D

char 2009-01-15 3:44pm

Could not resist, you devil you. REally looking forward to the DVD.
Thanks in advance.

Crazy Woman 2009-01-15 6:08pm

Converts.... whatcha' mean converts??? Addicts! \\:D/

opportunity-shop 2009-01-16 3:42am

Ordered the video and a small supply of boro. Can't wait. I hope it will make the muse rush back as I have been in a slump for months. New learning always seems to give me a boost. Hope this will be a runaway best seller for you. Barb

Troll Lover 2009-01-16 5:44am

Got it. Will reply in a sec. :D

Rachel 2009-01-16 12:36pm

Hi Brent. I would love to have the DVD if you still have some. Please let me know if I can get one. I can sent pay pal or whatever method you prefer. I was so hoping you would do one on implosions and the inside out technique. I've also seen beads that are gorgeous by blowing a large buble, decorating it with twisties and dots etc. and the imploding the bubble. These make beautiful marbles and pendants. I am dying to know how ti is done. Send me a PM with the details on what I need to do next please. If you want me to send you money for this DVD or wait until you get another batch, that is fine. I will wait on you.

Mr. Smiley 2009-01-16 1:15pm

PM sent Rachel... thank you. :love:

I will definitely be covering many more techniques on the future DVDs. The next DVD is going to be on Hearts... several different hearts... :D

Venbead 2009-01-16 5:05pm
