Default Candy Jacks Murrini Bead Tutorial



I did a step by step instruction with a video. Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ryi4XxEu2Q

And here's the step by step to go with it:

1. Make a clear round spacer out of any good clear. I use Lauscha or Reichenbach 104 but any good clear will work.

2. Put three bumps of clear on top of the bead in a triangle. You're going to stick the murrini to these bumps so make them pretty good sized.

3. Heat up one of the bumps and firmly place the murrini on it. Be sure you've pre heated the murrini a bit in the back of the flame or it may crack.

4. Heat just the face of the murrini slightly. Wait a second then gently press it down ever so slightly. This makes it easier to cover with clear later but keeps it raised enough to get that 3-D look.

5. Grab another rod of clear - the key here is to use SOFT clear. Aether is PERFECT. Effetre is good too if you have a good batch that won't scum up on you. I've tried using the Reichenbach 104 clear and it was way too stiff and pulled the murrini all out of shape. So just make sure it's soft clear.

6. Heat up a pea sized gather of clear at the end of your rod and plop it down on the murrini while making a sort of rotating motion so as to cover as much of the sides of the murrini as you can in one motion before the clear goes too stiff.

ok, I know that part can be tricky but don't despair! We can fix it later with a little clear stringer.

7. Repeat #6 for the other two murrini.

8. Check the sides of the murrini for any bare, unencased spots. Take a little bit of clear stringer and just swipe a bit of clear in those spots.

9. Heat up each bump enough to smooth out the lumpies but not enough to loose the bump at all. Go easy with the heat, there! Not too much.

10. Pop in the kiln! You're done. Now go make a bunch more because they look fabulous in big groups.

I used murrini from www.loriandkim.com .

Lori, that's so cool! Now that I received my murrini today I'll have some to try it out with next time I torch. Thanks so much for sharing that!

All because of these fun beads... Thanks for sharing! If I can stop making "tattooed" critters with the murrini I'll give this a shot!

Imma printing the picture just so I can look at it at work! (Is that okay?) There's no way mine could be that "HAPPY"! But see? Now I have to get some "happy" murrini, huh?

Thank you!

You have no idea how thrilled I am that you posted this... I wanted desperately to make some of these but just didn't feel "right" about it. Now I can try and make them with wild abandon! I am tickled pink! And just so you know, I would have paid for this little tutorial!

Thank you!!!!

I second this! I tried it once and didn't do the three bumps for the murrini and mine bead looked like crap so I gave up. Thanks Lori for sharing this, I am going to make my Mom a set for her "cruise wear"!

WooHoo!!! Thank you so much for sharing this! I have to admit I tried just the encasement of the murrini part when I first saw your beautiful, happy jacks - my result was fugalacious (to put it as mildly as possible) and resulted in much mirth from the in-house peanut gallery! I am so glad to be able to try it again the Right Way!!

Lori I did my "Mocha" murrini on a medium fossil base, then used clear bumps and clear encasing on the murrini. The colored base was just enough to really make the colors in the murrini "pop". You and Kim better get busy, cause as much fun as I'm having with these things, I'm gonna need another big tub of murrini SOON!

This is so cool and gives me something to try with murrini. I am usually somewhat at a loss as to how to use them in a design lol. This should help me get over my intimidation lol.
