    Hit the studio after work for a bit. Made this honeycomb pendant first. I like it but not happy with my bails yet. then some more spoons which I didn't photograph.

    Looks like it turned out well! The depth is very nice! I can't wait to get my hood setup so I can start fuming!

    Thanks AC! Fuming is awesome, I am getting much better at it now. I don't have a hood but my ventilation is and nice pulls everything out fairly quickly. That pendant is amber purple with cobalt blue backing, I have yet to try fuming pendants but would like to try it soon.

    Awesome pendant man!! That bail is a little uneven but it looks very nice!

    Make a bunch of those and visit your local bead store.

    Nice! Amber purple is awesome. I have some double amber I'm trying to baby cause I don't have much left and I know how versatile it is!

    So to make it you... coil potted amber purple blew it out thin dotted up condensed down then throw a loop on? I've been wanting to try that but have been a little hesitant cause I don't want to use so much color on something I may very well bugger up

    Thanks guys it love how it came out I'm going to see if I can get more consistent with them.

    AC that's exactly it. After I condensed it I backed it then punty up to the back, put a lens on it. Punty up to bottom and made the bail. Give it a shot it! It's rewarding and you don't use that much color. Good luck looking forward to checking yours out!

    Thanks dude! I don't know what color it is I think it's one of the Chinese colors, come clear but when in an oxidized flame gets these nice dark ruby reds. Had fun making the monkey too! Thanks for looking.

    Made a couple pendants tonight. Honeycomb cracked in half I'm not a fan of unobtanium. Second was another fumed silver wacky one backed in lake green I believe.

    Dude I hate that no one's said anything bout this but with this crew round here. I'm sure it's because it's just far to easy to say something inappropriate bout it.

    So I'm gonna spot the metaphorical elephant in the room and say that's a ______ pussy right there.

    Enter whatever explicative verbs you please in the space provided.

    (Also I'm highly impressed with the detail, size, and captured elegance of the piece itself. As a crazy cat person I'm impressed haha)

    Thanks AC! It was fun to make, I tried to make a giraffe but it came out janky.

    Unobtanium is one of those colors that like to be real punky when encased. esp deep in a honeycomb. Basically most colors with that sparkle in em don't play the best with deep encasement under clear.

    Hey axis I didn't mention it but I just backed the honeycomb in unobtanium. I blame myself because I believe it cooled too quickly.

    Are you fuming outside or inside?

    I'm only fuming my spoon pipes and the squiggly pendants, the honeycomb pendants I was using amber purple and butterscotch

    I might have been confusing with my wording. Are you fuming on the inside or on the outside of your glass pipes?
