    Flower marbles are hard : )

    Mine tend to "telescope" upward, stretching out vertically instead of blooming open.

    Any advice? Thanks!!

    elbow down, keep it more horizontal when imploding, not so vertical. Maybe stretch it some first with more of a downward angle, then flatten it by using less angle, pretty much horizontal. experiment with the angle and see what happens.

    usually get it to bloom as you press lightly on the marver to flatten it. by the end, you dont need to press much at all, just the weight of itself will be plenty.

    My best flower so far, woohoo!
    Thanks for the tips. I also read and re-read this thread http://www.talkglass.com/forum/showt...-power!/page21
    and got the implosion tutorial from Ron Bearer.
    All that helped. Still lots of work to do, but feel like I'm making progress : )

    Yes he does, he was next door doing a two day class at glassroots, and I know he does others. He was really nice, in a surreal moment after a run to the car I found myself and my pregnant wife in a back freight elevator to the stage with him and and bob snodgrass
