So here are my first ever 3 attempts of bead making on my own, bearing in mind I had only used the torch for the first time ever with my day with Kaz. ( Lovely Kaz from Cheeky Cherub )
Above is day 1, The gravity needed alot more work and I made the beads too small, however the lentil I was really pleased with and too really with the beads because they may look shit but they were what I had made all on my own . It will take alot of practice and over time I am sure I will get used to the glass .
Day 2 Above. I listened to Trudi's advice and went slower so the gravity had a better chance in forming . I was so pleased with the one or two that came out . Still on a high though I love it watching the glass melt , putting the colours together seeing how they turn out the next day after annealing
Day 3 , fewer beads but I can see a slight improvement or is it wishful thinking ? I hope not as I am enjoying this sooooo much .
