@Veri:
The torch is expensive. You can use one from the local DIY store but the colours of the glass won't stay very bright. I use a propane/oxygen torch. You also need a kiln for annealing the beads, that's a very expensive thing!! If you're interested you could take a workshop somewhere to see if you like it! Wink

Thank you for your answer - just saw it today Huh - I'm a bit out of the moon lately Cheesy. We have some classes here but they are really expencive - much pricier than the blowtorch from DIY store - that's why I asked about if it's ok... Thank you for the info on those and the problems that occur using them. My dad accually has a kiln that heats to I think 1000C (cca 1800F), maby even more (I have to check) - he made his PhD in engeneering on heat, lucky me Grin. Would that be ok?

I'd relly like to try but we're a bit on budget right now and I'm not sure how much you learn at the beginner class - usually they are pretty basic with no such cuties as this froggies Wink. How hard is this thing to master?

Froggies are not easy to learn. It takes quite a time. The hands and legs are very hard because of the thin lines. So, for beginners I would say no. Embarrassed
My kiln uses 521 degrees Celsius. I think yours would be ok, but honestly I'm not sure about that. I have not enough knowledge.  Undecided I just know how my own stuff worjs, haha.
