Ace Ventura is on his way
well, that's not strictly true .... Ace the Kiln is on his way from Kilncare, along with the necessary to have a go at Lampworking from Tuffnells Glass.
He'll have a bead door apparently, and is a lovely ultramarine blue .... almost purple!!
This evening I'm off to meet a cyber friend for a peek at her set up for lampworking, and as soon as the equipment arrives I should be good to go.
Once any beads are done I think I will batch anneal to start with ... particularly because reading all the info on the who firing malarkey will mean Ace and I will just stare each other down for a good few weeks!!!! Then I will get the Rubbah Elf to work out how to do it, and train me over many patient (on his part) and painful months.
I don't think the actual lampworking will be that hard - I'm a crafter after all - but they could well be famous last words LOL!!
Happy Friday everyone ... roll on Gin O'Clock.
