Default HELP~ black trailing effect

I'm so impaired with how to do the thin trailing. I know you have to spin your bead fast, but I keep getting globs of black

thanks in advance

Karrina, the trick is to pull a stringer of about 1-2mm, just slightly melt the end to attach to the bead and then spin. Either break off for a clean end or melt for a small dot on the end (I prefer clean ends). You also want to make sure your bead is just slightly tacky to grab the melted stringer end.
