Candice - I just bought the tute. I've been wanting this one and decided today was the

hard work. I'll be sure and post pics of my attempts. Samma

Be well, and hope things are looking up for you soon.

let me know of you need any help

Candice

Sure...I'll start.
First the easy ones. I'm working my way thru the tute and am about 1/2 there.


Here's my biggest ornie to date. Not straight from the tute, but your tute has made me make friends with boro tubing and THAT'S HUGE!

Hey Candice~

I was wondering, could you give us some info on the dangers posed by "blow-outs" when blowing soft 104? I keep hearing about this (mostly from folks who are blowing shards) buty I figured with your background in blowing you would be the person to ask for specific info!

thanks~

Jo

hmmmmmmmmmmm.....this is a tough question. and here is my advice... err on the side of caution. Yup, I am an old timer, and tend to do things the old school way, but that isnt always the best or safest way,,, so I have found out often years down the road.

I must admit that I still do a blow off for almost every vessel I open. Its only been since I have returned to the torch after 7 years away, that all the hissy fits are being thrown about doing that. I have done some reading that says its not a huge worry for your lungs, cant recall where though. and I have also come across stuff that says its really bad stuff. Put simply.. I dont know for sure either way.

Its not something I particularly worry about, but I also worked in an environment for so many years that this was standard practice. I wish I had a definitive answer for you, but my best advice is, better safe than sorry and make your own decisions. I also know very little about all the new colors out and the metal content etc etc etc.

But.... you should rarely have a "blow out" doing anything in my tutorial. The bioggest chance of it is in blowing the mini ornaments. If you are getting blow outs its because the glass is WAY to hot. and when you blow one spot is blowing out very quickly and popping. Try counting to 3 as you rotate after leaving the flame. This will allow the heat to ven out, and the glass to form a skin on the outside before you blow, thus avoiding a "blow out"

hope this helps some.

Candice

Default Outstanding ornaments in a terrific tutorial

The tutorial is thoughtful in its approach-both visually and written instructions are logically laid out & are explicit in instruction. I am very much looking forward to reading the tutorial more thoroughly, working on the techniques and getting to know you better though your writing. Thank you for your time in writing it.

I was lucky enough to receive some of the ornaments Candice used to make her tut. Here is some eye candy!







Can't wait to put them on the tree again this year!

Does anybody know of a source that currently has 10-12mm Lauscha tubing in stock? http://www.crloo.com is out of stock in all colors - they only have the larger 20-30mm Lauscha tubing in stock.

Wow I love the icicle with the blown ball on top, I wish I was skilled enough to play with tubing, hopefully one day. Those would look really pretty on my tree, well one day maybe.
