I don't work with boro. I've never really done implosions.
But your tutorial is really great. It's easy to understand
what you're doing and you make me want to try it.

Thanks for sharing. It makes me realize how small our world
is when I see a chilipepper kiln, just like mine, in your photos
and know that yours is in Romania.

I love the accent too, I felt like I was watching a Mission Impossible clip, because I am sure that is what it will be like for me to try and make it. I will give it a shot though. Happy Turkey Day all of you and thanks so much for the tutorial.

Way tougher then it looks, tried 2 times with no luck i cant seem to get my encased rod right because the colors did not separate, I seem to be getting to much color and not enough white and then of course I'm still a noob and I could not get them to implode straight. Lets just say i got some cool looking drop style pendents out of them lol could not waste the glass so made something out of the mess i had going

Well, If you show me what you came up with I can tell you how to improve..
The countour color must be apllied thinner over the base color. Pull a 3mm stringer of the contour color and apply it over a full size rod of the base color (which is about 7-8mm)..

Keeping the whole thing perfectly centered is essential of course but you can only reach that with practice... Yours probably came out just like my first ones...

thanks everyone!

Mine sort of worked in soft glass (I use bullseye). But I'm not very good with implosions. More practice needed.
