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!


I stopped working with glass a couple of years ago, but I have had so many people looking for these tutorials that I decided to put them back up here on etsy to make them easier to find :)

A tutorial about how to make a creature from solid borosilicate glass rods (no tubing)! I have spent a lot of time on this, trying to make it as clear as possible so that anyone can make a creature.

This tut is a 2.2mb PDF file with 46 pages and 87 photos. The layout is extremely simple and the whole tutorial is black and white except for the photos, in the hopes that it will be as easy to print as possible, if you choose to do so.

I wrote this tutorial with the assumption that many people using it will have never used borosilicate glass before. I have info about proper seals, color, clear sizes that I commonly use, etc. Then I go into how to make the creature with photos to highlight everything from beginning to end.
