Miriam has kindly sent it again, the first file that arrived was called 'noname' and had a size of 0K,
I should have noticed that it wasn't going to work!

My webserver is going crazy!!! So many people try to download the tutorial at the same time. The server can't handle this and sends out empty attachments.

Please reply to the email that is been send and I will send you the file by hand. Be patient, I am not at my computer the whole day. ;-)

Lovely tutorial, wonderful pink beads, Miriam!

Had a little play today, and although I didn't achieve Miriam's shocking pinks I am quite pleased (I know what I did "wrong"  ;)) :

I just checked and the link is working fine.

Please if you have any trouble, reply on the email or contact me on my website. It is so difficult to keep up with fora all over the world. I won't forget you when you email me, because my inbox is my memory. ;-)

Wooohooo.

Just got this out of my kiln and its the brightest bead I have ever made! I didnt have the correct orange so just used what I had, and it has turned out quite well I think :) It seems to glow!

That's lovely, was it still a transparent orange, or was it opaque like it looks at the end?


Title: Re: A FREE tutorial
Post by: Shirl on June 14, 2011, 11:13:20 AM
No, I didnt have any transparent orange so used opaque, the little sample in at the end, it was richenbach opal orange

Post by: turnedlight on June 14, 2011, 11:17:21 AM
Ok, cool! I might have a go tomorrow, I have some of that orange! I had go the other day, but the rod turned out to be trans red and it went too dark. ::)
