Wow Sal......you ever thought of writing a proper book?

Yeah - but Joan beat me to it! LOL Only kidding  Wink . Well, I started writing a book a few years ago but it got to over 200 pages. I dont' write very concisely so I have to force myself to rein in a little. Then I made some DVDs and then loads of people came out with various e-tuts and so on so the book project got a bit shelved. Would like to revisit it sometime but never quite found the time......

Glad it's helped a few people.

SAL:
I refuse to buy e-tutes but I'm a book-a-holic, and you know I've wanted you to do a book for years! Grin  And I want one of the first signed copies please Wink  There is nothing like flicking through a beautiful book with lots of drooly pics and text that makes you smile, while sipping a cuppa with your feet up.  My idea of heaven!  If my house burned down, books would be what I missed most.

I also think it would be worth you jotting down your trials and tribulations you've gone through in the process of setting up the shop, it would make a fab book or series in a mag!  You have a clear way of writing, you simplify things without dumbing down, and yet you inject humour too.  A geeky glass book, somewhere between idiots guide and scientific text book would be fab!

and I thougth I was just going to play with glass and make a few beads and see what i got. Now i have to study alchemy, anyone got an alembic? Grin

But seriously folks, great thread with lots of info in easily understood text, no mean feat given the subject matter, well done Sal and others. it helps me to understand what it going on and why when I apply lots of heat to coloured glass !

There is an article on flame/surface interactions and art glass in Microscopy Today from Sept 1020.  Got to the URL below, open the Archive and look for issue volume 18, issue 05. There is a similar article in The Glass Bead from this past winter.

Well, I guess it's good to know that the article made it this far and didn't sink like a stone.  Smiley I'm working on another involving mists generated from cold working processes.
