Fantastic Amy!!! Thanks!

AKDesigns 2012-02-17 5:03pm

Thanks everyone! I really hope you like it and have as much fun webbing glass as I do. It's addictive. :)

Kirima 2012-02-17 5:54pm

I am proud to announce that the German Translation of the tutorial is ready as well! :-)

jamief03 2012-02-17 6:22pm

Boom chicka bow wow!!!

Kirima 2012-02-17 6:41pm

Boom chicka bow wow holy cow now: the German translation seems to have flown all the way to nowhere... ?! Hopefully Amy will find it in her Spam-files? ;-) Urgh...

Edit: Amy found it! :-)

AKDesigns 2012-02-17 6:52pm

I'm getting it up on my website right now! :)

Any tutorial authors reading this I highly recommend Martina's translation service. She also posts on the German forums for you too. She rocks!

Kirima 2012-02-17 6:57pm

Boom chicka bow wow, I am a holy rocking swiss cow now! ;-) THANKS, Amy!

AKDesigns 2012-02-17 7:09pm

Thanks again!

Just ordered mine. I love the storm tut ... can't wait to play with the webbing (come on Spring time ... I need warmer glass).

PerfectDeb 2012-02-17 10:44pm

Can't find the webbing tut :(

ok something weird for you - thats not there when i look on my ipad:???:

AKDesigns 2012-02-18 12:01am

I've looked at my website on an iPad before and all the graphics show up just fine. I don't have one to double check that page now though. Could it be that it's cached on your iPad because I just changed that page Wednesday.

AKDesigns 2012-02-18 12:05am

It looks fine on my Kindle.

PerfectDeb 2012-02-18 12:07am

i just took a snapshot of the page - hang on a sec and i'll upload it

Yep. That's a cached version Deb. You need to do a hard refresh to bring the new page up. My Etsy mini is now at the top of the page and the Webbing Tutorial is on the right side. :)

AKDesigns 2012-02-18 12:24am

Deb....here's the direct link. See if this works for you:

Margrieten 2012-02-18 2:58am

Just bought it. Great that I could immediately download it. Can't wait to try. I have your storm tutorial also and I loved it.

Thank you so much for making this one. So many examples I can try.

HannahRachel 2012-02-18 6:36am

I really need to try that instant download thing.

I just got your tutorial, Amy. It reads beautifully. I guess I kow what i'll be doing this weekend!

I started a Webbing thread in the Gallery section - but I wanted to post them here too. Here are some webbers that I made from Amy's Wonderful tutorial yesterday..... I really, really LOVE this technique! I wonder if I can get it into a marble somehow...hmmmmm :)

AKDesigns 2012-02-19 10:11am

Wow those are GORGEOUS! I'm sure you can do a marble with it. :)

GlassGalore 2012-02-19 12:07pm

Amy, for those who have your other tutorial which includes a 'chapter' on webbing too, what is the advantage of purchasing this new Webbing Techniques Guide?

Cheri 2012-02-19 12:26pm

Amy... Just outstanding! Can't wait to give it a try!

Good question! I included the standard webbing technique in my Storm Tutorial having no idea that 2 years plus later, I'd have taken the webbing technique to a whole different level. This new tutorial has step by step instructions on Standard Webbing, Heavy Webbing, Dirty Webbing, Webbing with Silver Foil, Webbing with an Activator and Webbed Dots. There is also a color guide for every Double Helix glass color that the techniques work well on.

Thank you for the detailed answer. Definitely tells me there is plenty more to learn and I'll have to get this one too! :koolaid:

killerbeedz1 2012-02-20 11:35am

I own both the storm tutorial and the webbing tutorial and love them both. They are two of my favorites! I love all the details Amy puts into her tutorials and different examples of what glasses look like once the technique is used. The Webbing Tutorial is another hit as far as I'm concerned! Thanks Amy!

What a fast download! Just a super tutorial with step by step and gorgeous pictures! Thank you for sharing this beautiful technique.

I'm not getting very good results and I know I'm doing something wrong. I wonder if I'm reducing too much as I tend to overdo everything. I just get a solid block of tan reduction that doesn't break up.

Any suggestions?

Someone else had this problem too. You know when I say "up to 25 seconds"? Well I guess depending on your set up it can take even longer. You can't over cook. Sometimes I keep cooking long after the break up for a minute or two so it's not possible to overdo it. My guess is that you aren't doing it enough.

What glass are you using?

Also, just an FYI to everyone, until you're comfortable with all the different techniques it's best to stick with the "This work best on" glass colors that I list.

tracidawn78 2012-02-21 8:28pm

Do you want pics here, in the gallery, or both?

TELL ME WOMAN.

AKDesigns 2012-02-21 8:34pm

Both. :)

tracidawn78 2012-02-21 8:37pm

FINE.

Ok, copy/paste from my gallery post:

You know how I feel about you and your tuts. I'd marry you both if it were legal.

Is it ok to tell people our combos on here? or will that give too much away?

And I HATED this one before it went in the kiln. It was so ugly, grimy, brown, and ooky. I finally slapped 2 murrini on it and said fuck it. I was very pleasantly surprised when I opened the kiln and it magically developed color.

http://lampworketc.com/forums/pictur...pictureid=5289

I think I'm gonna hook up my minor for the first time ever and give it a shot on that. I'm melting stuff during the reduction cycle on my cricket that I don't think I should be melting.
