Item details


I have decided to put these tutorials up for just the listing fee, etsy percentage, paypal percentage, etc. I figure $1 will cover it all :) They were originally listed at $20, but I feel that it is time to release them for everyone to enjoy! Although I have been away from glass for several years, I love the folks in the glass community and hope this gesture helps some others getting started or looking for hints for specific techniques. Enjoy!


Here be the Beasts!! ;) This tutorial covers the making of three different kinds of my "Beasts" out of borosilicate glass. At the end, there is a section on my favorite colors and color combos with pictures of the finished examples and tips on how to get the most out of each color. There is a heavy emphasis on Momka's Glass, because it's all awesome. It is my hope that this tutorial gives you lots of information to apply to any kind of borosilicate sculpture work.

This tut is a 6.6mb PDF file with 74 pages and a bajillion photos. Well...let's say this tut is "profusely illustrated". The layout is extremely simple and the whole tutorial is greyscale except for the photos, in the hopes that it will be as easy to print as possible, if you choose to do so.
