I’ve been making this style of flowers on my beads for years now, it is something which I developed for a long while before it got to where it is now. It’s been through many stages of evolution and been applied to all sorts of beads in many different ways. There is more about that on my blog www.madelinebunyan.wordpress.com
I have been asked many times how I make my flowers, and now, finally, here it is, the tutorial so you can make your own gorgeous flowers!
This tutorial is for making the 3D flower motif only, I don't show you how to make the beads themselves, just the flowers. I want you to put these flowers onto beads YOU already like making, not try to make beads just like mine...that would be boring...I already made them! Take this flower design in directions I never thought of, and have fun!
For this reason, the colours I use in the tutorial are very simple, I want you to experiment with colours YOU love!
As well as the in depth instructions and loads of photos showing all the steps for making the flowers, I've included some variations - the cherry blossom style, pointed petals and 2 layered rose. - a tools/supplies list - troubleshooting tips - other ideas for different variations
The tutorial is 23 pages long, approx 10 MB and in PDF format.
This tutorial is for soft glass, though it may work in borosilicate too, I haven’t tried it (yet!)
I work on a GTT bobcat torch with a single 5 lpm Oxygen concentrator I have not tried this technique on a hothead torch yet, at some points I do use a fine flame, so it may be rather tricky on a hothead.
