    Depends on where you want stuff imploded to. I start with the things I want up inside the marble the farthest and go from there.

    Yeah I see. I'm getting the hang of it and learning how placing the lines further in/out and how many implosion you do between petal layers effects everything. I've made five today nd took a break from them to make a blue "minion" that someone ordered... Definitely working on my sculpture skills more once I'm satisfied with making these flowers. That's one realm of lampworking I've really neglected.

    Thats the type of thing I usually try to avoid, see through petals, but it looks good. How where the veins made?

    You can get "veins" a couple ways. One is to use twisted cane for the petals. This was done by imploding the petals just until flat on the back, then adding tiny dots along the inside of each petal...the dots them implode along with the petals.

    Try using a tungsten to poke and various places in the dots for pointy petals.

    yes
    seems like no matter how long I do this I am still learning. And thanks for posting that kobuki demo I must have seen it six times before but still learned something new things from it, their just some much good information in that demo you can't absorb it.
    Have to try that vain tech next time.

    same on the demo. every time i watch i pick up something new. tiny little bits of advice that seem like side comments the first times you watch it make much more sense and hold more importance. thanks everyone for your contribution to this thread!!!
