These beads were made for clubbing

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 :-)

  Vaseline Ornela glass

 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):

  Glowing beads

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.

  6. I know what you mean about standing, I think the same thing :). The more I see lampwork the more I want to try it myself, just what I need, another obsession LOL.

  9. Ha no way! I didn't even know this was available! So much fun! It's even better that the glass is already glowy without having to add messy glow in the dark enamels! So awesome! Let me go grab my raver pants;)

    Love it!
