Default Butterfly murrine?

Does anyone know of a tutorial, or have one they'd be willing to share, for a butterfly murrine cane? I've tried a few times myself, with less-than-satisfactory results. Thanks!

I'd say practise makes perfect... I've been trying to make murrine myself for a while and its tough... Just search "drawing book butterfly" or something similar on google and find a simple picture. Then plan how your going to build it and give it a shot.

So many people out there are making them... why not order directly and save your gas?

But if you must make them... just do one side of the 2 winged butterfly. Then cut that murrine in half and flip it over (mirror image) and melt them together into one full butterfly.

Nothing is impossible on a hothead. I made some rose murrinis on a hothead this fall.

I made this clownfish murrine on a Hothead:



Heidi...I feel like a dork...I was trying to make both wings...duh!

I have been planning to do try again...my last attempts main problem was trying to get a grip for pulling....I just got some pyrex punties so I know it will be easier next time. I have been trying to make a luna moth...I had one that would have been OK...but it got ruined when I tried to pull it. I am hoping to get a hotter torch soon so I was kind of waiting. Thanks to Heidi I will just focus on one wing at a time!

Meri-

First I would draw it out so you have a plan...
If you are going to go for a monarch...of course that will be more complicated...if you tried say a simple yellow butterfly...start with yellow and build it into a wings shap...if you want veins in the wing...layer them in there....I would wrap the wing shape in a darker yellow or lighter to make it stand out....then I would pull it smaller and cut in half. Put the pieces in a kiln and start the body...black would be good...flatten a gather....and shape so it has a head...attach wings and encase the butterfly with enough clear to keep it from distorting during pulling. I did this last time and my luna moth would have been ok, but the mass came loose during pulling and stretch all over in a big mess (not pretty).

I hope this makes since....but this is how I would do it.
