Do you own a Carlo Dona Bellflower press? (or are you thinking about buying one?) Now your bellflower press just became a versatile basis for DOZENS of different garden creations (everything shown here plus many more!)
This is a 54-page tutorial with over 200 photos and EIGHT seperate step-by-step tutorials
This tutorial is for the beginning/intermediate lampworker. You will need to have a basic understanding of lampworking techniques and safety precautions, and you will need a Carlo Dona bellflower press. However, advanced lampworking skills are NOT required. Practicing the techniques presented in this tutorial will build your skills!
The Basics section shows you how to use the press, and introduces a few specialized tips for creating different color effects on your Bellflowers....
The Techniques section demonstrates 5 major deconstruction techniques and how to apply them to create just about anything you want from the basic bellflower.....
The Step-by-Step section shows you how to use your Bellflower press to make Daisies, Lilies, Blooming Cactus, Daffodils, Dogwood flowers and even Butterflies!
The Bonus section shares retail resources, understanding and choosing wire, and how to make your own custom color blended rods.
PLEASE NOTE: In order to make the items featured in this tutorial, you will need a bellflower press. I made all the samples with a 20mm, 8 petal Carlo Dona press. You can easily modify the techniques to a different size of Carlo Dona press, but I have not tested the techniques on other brands of bellflower presses.
