I'm hoping others will join in and show what they've been making lately. Everyone is welcome! I'll start us off.

Oooo! Lovely!

I was just trying to figure out today the best way to make my new to me Hellcat up so can switch between oxycon and tanked, so hopefully will be able to contribute soon. (I decided to take it to the welding shop and get new hoses and information and help with connections)

Eileen - Good luck with your set up! I only have oxy cons, so I'm not much help. Jealous that you have tanked too!

Thank you, Mina! This is a really great new color, so easy to use!

Those are lovely, Susan! The soft pink and old gold color of the silver go so well together! Have you tried the MA Amethyst? It's nice but not quite what I was expecting. Didn't get any of the gold pink.
This is the Amethyst.


Just some random beachy colors rolled in exotic powder.


And a Luna moth wing. Oink. lol

My DH got rid of the welder that he used the oxygen with, and was going to give away his tank until I heard about it I haven't really used it yet, but I want to try some marbles soon.

Oh wow, Rebecca!!! When I used the gold amethyst it was much lighter than that. Yours is gorgeous!!! I'll have to try again. Love love love the color combos! Thank you for sharing!

Eileeen, how lucky you are! My dream is liquid oxy, but I don't see that ever happening lol

Thanks Susan! I thought it was a bit light by itself too, that's over Parramore Siberia. Same principal as soft glass, layering a purple/violet over periwinkle. I was kinda surprised it worked.

So pretty, Susan! I wish some of the experimentals would make it to full production. That would be one of them. But I'm still mourning the loss of some of them from 10 years ago. lol

These are Magpie's Crystal Blue Persuasion frit over different bases. Sea slyme for sure, maybe regular (if there is such a thing) Slyme, and I don't know what else....peacock chameleon maybe.

I love that blend (all of her blends, really!), and those beads are gorgeous!!!

Thanks! Made some more Luna Moth wings today. The top one is a version of Slyme that I got a long time ago from TAG. I wish I had a bunch more, the newer versions just scuzz something awful for me. The other 2 are GA green shades.

Susan, those are beatiful pairs! Love that delicious pink.
Rebecca, love the texture of those wings. The blue beads are gorgeous

Edit: I didn't mean to leave out Dave's tiny elephant and other critters. Really shows the fun you can have with sculpting. Great stuff

Thanks, Kristin! Pull out that boro and join us!!

Love those, Laura! That is so pretty, even though you are totally teasing us. Maybe we can convince her to release that one

Susan, i would love it. I whacked one of my oxycons out of commission. I still need to figure out how to take it apart and take a pic for the repair guy, it might be something I can do myself. So I'm down to one, not sure it is enough for boro, although Rachel Oxton uses the same setup as I currently have and does magic, of course. So I might not have an excuse after all.
I think its the sort of thing where you don't know where to start so you just start melting? LOL Maybe this weekend.

Laura, I swear, magpies and glitter, just destiny! Lovely shinies.

All the beads look awesome. I can never seem to get the bead release to stay intact while working boro.

Sorry to hear about your oxy con, Kristin. My offer is always there, if you need to zip over and work here.

Thank you, Dave. Have you tried Fusion? I'd be happy to send you a little to try if you'd like.
