Hi folks,
Can anyone tell me how you can get the encased tornado effect?  They are really puzzling.

Do you mean this?

If so, it's actually quite easy.

1) Start with a skinny barrel in the "tornado" colour
2) Put rings of clear around the barrel - make sure they don't touch - alternatively trail a spiral of clear around the barrel like a screw thread or helter skelter.
3) Gently melt the clear into the barrel. Don't marver,
4) Encase the whole bead.
5) I squashed this bead to exaggerate the spiral effect but you can leave it round.

Thanks everyone,
The barrel colour is CIM clear pink (don't know what it's real name is). I've covered that with faux boro - reichenbach iris gold over effetre straw yellow.
Then the encasing is bog standard vetrofond scummy clear.

Maybe you should have a go Geraldine...it's one of those techniques which gives a really good result and you don't have to be 100% accomplished at it. May actually be easier than placing dots.

Wow  Shocked What a stunning bead Sal!

Is that the same stuff known as Raku in America? Must get some of it in fine frit and experiment, I've seen that it can be achieved in milder colours on a HH torch, although I won't be trying it till I learn to use the HH properly first  Tongue

Hi Anacasta,
It is the same manufacturer Reichenbach but it's not Raku - which is Iris Orange. You need Iris Gold (looks exactly like brown sugar in frit form). Mix Iris Gold with Effetre Straw Yellow and try it over different colour bases - I used amethyst pink. This is the "Faux Boro" effect.

Thank you for those details  Grin
I shall have a go in the future with this but don't think it will look as lovely with a HH torch. I'll probably produce a brown mass!
