The Complete Book of Glass BeadmakingBook - 2005 | 1st ed.
Every eye-catching photo in this superb guide will inspire bead and glass-makers. Splashed across the pages are all the most popular types of beads and the, most innovative techniques. Basic instructions explain how to light the torch, wind and cool the bead, and shape the glass. As bead makers' skills develop, they can expand their horizons by experimenting with enamel; using mica dust to form an iridescent sheen; and applying silver, gold and copper leaf to layers of glass. The most advanced projects are truly remarkable, from sculptural beads to beads that encase images of stars, rainbows and faces.
