Yesterday I got a package in the mail containing a kilo of Ornela Vaseline glass. I love that it was measured in kilos. Kind of like drugs. Because glass and Diet Coke are my drugs of choice :-)
It was right before I had to make the 1 hour 10 minute round trip to pick up my child. But when I got home, I fired up the kiln and made some hollow test beads. Here's what they look like in natural light:
And here's what they look like under a black light (for those days you go clubbing or to a haunted house):
These are pretty wonky. Most of it has to do with the fact I need to sit down to make hollows, but forgot to sit. I personally like to stand as much as possible when I torch to keep from feeling like my butt is expanding every moment I sit. That was probably TMI? Anyway, this glass is really fun and I can hardly wait to play with it more.
