    Sideways with fingerprints, better than nothin. This sight , and this friends old I pad are fighting me atm.

    This one was a custom, made to match one of the last pieces I posted in this thread. ( boyfriend girlfriend pieces ) The main body is about the size of a lighter. It looks much bigger in pics. ( No I don’t have humongous hands.) I took these quick before it got picked up. I learned what not to do with a spinner marble on this one. It came out fine, just extra work to make it not as clean. (Facepalm) I just added Eraser To keep the marble still for storage/ travel / scratches till it’s given as a gift.

    Since my kitchen is being remodeled and I didn't want to reuse the current knobs and also didn't want to buy new knobs. So I thought to myself, "self... why not make said knobs for your new kitchen". Only two are kind of the same. They will be on the cabinets above the stove. I've still got a lot more to make. There is a total of 32 drawers and doors to make knobs for. Back to the torch!

    Greasy glass alpha testing new colors.

    Green super sparkley one is "jungle juice" about a month old.

    Fushia red piece is a un-named, un-released color over White satin. Helped pull this phenoix variation last week.

    Vac stack was homemade by me, Greasy white satin and Greasy's black "hydrocarbon." 31mm xheavy shrunk down to 5mm walls, stripe the color on, Vac into 50x5.

    That fushia in my last post, Its very limited release, (its not actually released at all yet.)

    I supose if someone were in need of that batch , its labled "light phenoix over White satin " if you asked nice. (no promises)

    The fushia pink /purple on this piece is said color. The red on that little similar lock , is also that color, just combed and max strike (Thevibrant trans cherry red honeycomb bottom of the can.)

    That Brown piece is dark cowbell/ lightphenoix/ pinaplejuice/ pumpkin spice (satin orange) along with hydrocarbon/satin white
    gold sparkle/ with a few un labled cad lipwraps. (guessing , caravan red, lava, and Golden rod ?) the top vac stack was all Goldensparkle with caravan red stringer stacked between.

    Hypothethicly , Anyone could use any combination of colors. So Many choices. I know some people limit the colors to three a piece.("looks classy" ?) I know some people stack every color like kahos tech. I dont really have rules, I lust like what I like.

    Last piece, I was shooting for that 70's ugly Brown/orange fade. had the phenoix turned red it would have worked... I still like this color combo vibe. One i Will rock out again. The Brown looks like satin copper pipe in person. kinda reminds me of rad racer the video games colors

    That prep was a wack shape.

    the bottom Brown on the can should have been the same thickness or thicker. I blew the Brown bottom into a bubble right after that pick. so same handle , Brown bubble out of the narrow Brown closest to the handle. That bubble placed the connection hole in the right place. then after it was attached and bridged w/clear rod from the future carb hole to the 9.5mm clear handle, i get it hot flatten two sides of that Brown bubble and super heat/work the Bend.

    Hope that makes sense. a.k.a. Usually the can is the same diamiter all the way down. Pop connection hole low next to the handle.

    The stem usually gets a small thick bubble on the bottom to connect to. If its a lay back stem, hole gets poped at a 45* down low almost the bottom. If the stem runs paralell to the can, hole on the side of the stem bubble. Adjust acordingly.

    Be aware not to bunch up too much glass in the armpit / inside bend connection. I like to push, then pull the seal away when it first connects( pull out that armpit a little.) After the bridge, you can fix anything on a sherlock bend no matter how bad a connection looks. As long as Air flows through it, and the two lips sealed clean.

    Excellent info Boro. I will be reading that at least 20 more times very soon as this is what i'm about to work on along with some simple mini rigs. This month has really sucked for me time-wise so im gonna knock out some spoons real quick to sharpen back up.

    Fresh still in the kiln. Little Hammer bubbler. i couldnt smash the bottom like i wanted bc the downstem ended up too close. happy with how the bridge went. I need to get used to this process and just keep doing it.
