Default WigWags

I thought wigwags were missing in this show thread. So here is one I posted before just to start this thread.

not in here - you will have to research the tutorial section for how to do things. This has been explained before and this thread is a show only.

There are so many very good tutorials out there, I think there is no need for a new tut. If you look on YouTube, you will find wonderful ones.
Mary, we will tackle your tubing issues in the new year, how about it? Just get yourself some tubing. I love to work a 20mm heavy wall from Simax. Its a good size for a start. Bigger diameters require way more heat to work.

Onekura, your wig wags are incredible. I learned how to do simple color wig wags from a tutorial in Glass Line by my friend Bill Futer. They are fun to make.

Hi Chris
I have just started a thread called tubing issues in the tut room. I think will will cover this soon in there. It will be kind of tut-style so I am trying out this new tut room - hope it works

So Beautiful!!!
Am I understanding right that you made these with tubing? Or are we talking about two different techniques?

*note to self, buy tubing!

I think some people do it with rods, but I use tubing. I'm positive the ones Onekura posted were done with tubing as well. You can't get the detail or depth with rods that you can with tubing.

It's not really too difficult to do. It just takes a little patience and practice.

Thanks. I used to be a regular on here, but truth be told I haven't turned a torch on in two years so I haven't been around much. I can't get oxygen here any more. I've been looking for a substitute but so far haven't found anything that will work or is within my budget.

Chad ~ you got an airgas supplier there? When I used tanks, my local airgas place would stay open for me if I called them in advance, I would go and get a tank on my way home. I had same issues with delivery and working times. Really seems like a shame that someone so tallented can't get oxy. If I lived there, (I am retired) I would go get it for you. Hey, make friends with some old people who are retired, give them the money to go get it for you! lol. YOU should return to the torch in 2014.

Airgas is who I have my account with. They won't stay open a minute past 5. I even offered the guy an extra $20 to stay until 5:30 and he won't do it.

PaPi, you do amazing work. Those are incredible. Well done and thanks for sharing them. But just how did you do the 2. one - a wigwag made into a spiral . . ??? Your work is so clean and precise.

Thank you for your comment, Onekura.
I love your works. They have depth and fuming colors are amazing.

As for 2, yes it is twisted wigwag. Actually, it was difficult to keep it straight. I could not control the flow of the glass completely and had to decide to twist it.

Thank you PaPi - but, if you don't mind me asking . . was it lines of clear over fuming all arround the tube and then twisted, or did you do the wigwag on one side only and twisted? I just can't work this out
