Thread: Murrine technique

  1. #1

    Default Murrine technique

    Can you guys give your knowledge on full murrine pickups? Do you guys fuse them and roll them up like in the hot shop or place one at a time? Hints and tricks please.
    Thanks
    Josh

    I'm sure some Millie folk will chime in .

    On top of the classic Millie style lots of folks do stringer stacks these days .

    Some are getting very detailed .

    I always think of tv picture quality when viewing stringer stacks .

    I've been thinking about this lately.

    Is it just my inexperience or wouldn't layering the color (if that's even the correct wording) result in a finer detail?

    I could see if I was way off on this, as I've never done one, seen one done etc.(in person)

    Neither of you answered anything he said,

    I've never heard of a full murrine pickup. When i asked a similar question, I was shown an AK vid, where he places them inside one by one, really thin. then melts the section in really slow. I know another guy, peejaytaylorglass, and he sticks them on the outside only. also one by one.
    you will shank me later

    Any time I've seen someone do one of those rolling pickups in the hot shop, they have the chips preheated on a plate in the kiln. I imagine you could do something similar with boro, but you'd need a lot more heat to keep them pliable. That being said, I've never actually seen someone do it that way; they always place the chips one at a time (at least in my experience).

    If the o.p. Is talking about murrine stacks, precise placement helps achieve a continuous pattern. Picking them up one at a time.

    If talking about more traditional chip stacks built with line work/ cut flat cane, that seems to be a lay out , heated from one side, then rolled up as a single piece. Placement is slightly less important.

    That was a good video, thanks. Yeah, I was hoping for a tech where you fuse them all together first and then apply it to a collar or bubble. I will try how he did it though.

    I remeber seeing some build flat then shape into a tube .

    I also remeber they built a punty shaped like a t that set the width .

    Laying them all out first and arrange the size and such .
