Previously, I was mostly using my assortment of marvers to shape my beads, but I did several this weekend just using the hot glass and gravity. I am also starting to work on dots. I now can make dots without stringing hair thin strands of glass every where. Now I need to just work more on spacing and size!
And because I LOVE getting ahead of myself, I tried to make flowers on a colored base, encased with clear. They are a mess because the bead was too hot when I applied the clear and trying to get the clear smoothed out smeared them, but they were definitely fun to try!
