I've been melting a bunch of glass to fund a trip to Disney with my GF to celebrate Valentine's day... The glass is Borosilicate (aka Pyrex). The pics didn't come out so good - thank the weather for that. Need good sunlight to properly photograph this stuff.

Those are really cool. Some of the glass is amazing. I like the ones that are more traditionally heart shaped like the one on the left with the green spots in picture 27. They're actually kinda sexual. Some remind me more of a hot ass than a heart.

I guess the challenge is to make them look like a heart, rather than two teardrop globs of glass stuck together. When Are you going to film and youtube some of this stuff while it's cookin'?

heh. it's all made from ONE glob of glass - and that's the challenge, really. I'm not very good at making hearts, actually. My buddy Brent in Orlando aka "Mr. Smiley" of Orgasmic Glass is the true master. I'm working on it - hearts are fun & a good money maker...but I keep getting distracted by making ... other stuff.

Again pardon the crappy pictures, I'm working on it Smile I think a dark background is what I'm going to end up needing.

very nice bun...i agree with pun..im sure what you strive for is the perfect heart and working with glass you are probably subject to various circumstances and restrictions during the creation process that don't always let you creat the perfect heart...

With that said...in looking at one of your hearts with the "split" down the middle: (1st one in this row)


It occurred to me that you could probably create a really awesome looking chili pepper pendant out of glass if you chose to...Perhaps girls would look at is as "ooh im spicy..like that necklace"...$$$?

ya know...just brainstorming with ya'll..throwin stuff out there...

Oooh..glass chili pepper refrigerator magnet? Smile

lol @ JT - Thanks Man... Just to show my appreciation of your thoughtfulness I present you with the following:

2 Marbles, they're each about 1.5 inches in diameter.

Those marbles are super sweet. Are they perfectly round? Is there any way to keep/get the air bubbles out?

It's part of the craftsmanship. You have to be careful not to boil the glass, you pick off any bubbles you see on the surface before encasing it deeper, you take care not to trap air in between wraps of color, etc. You'll never get rid of all the bubbles, even a small scratch on the surface of your rod can turn into a tiny bubble - and some of the colors come with them pre-installed (one formula for white borosilicate glass (pyrex) is introducing air into clear and mixing it well).

Those two marbles are, for the most part, bubble free. You're seeing the background magnified through the glass. I'm still working on the photography. That black background looks PIMP with some stuff. Not so good with others. The bubbles that are there are nearly invisible to the naked eye, despite being visible in the photos.

And sometimes the bubbles are on purpose:

(Not my work)

Digging up & reanimating almost 2 years old threads is a sure sign of not getting enough fresh air...

Give him some credit Gren, he actually made a contribution in this particular thread instead of wasting valuable bytes.

Fix'd

Actually, the entire board and the game on the back of the cereal box that it was based on needs to be dug up and re-animated. Hardly anyone posts here anymore.

Clear!
