That is Amazing! How is that even possible?! Shocked

Yeah, what she said!!

These are actually the easiest glass pendants to make, a fantastic beginner project for any of you who are interested in trying out hot glass Wink. I say Go for it! It's not as hard as you think.
They turn out so sweet (these are particularly nice) and you can get amazing colour and form.
Me likey!
Do you ever do them with a flattened off bottom? I've got an incredible 3 mushroom paperweight made in this style but bigger with a flat base. Fun!

Here are 2 youtube video tutes by a couple of talented hot glass dudes.
First one is a single colour mushroom http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJM6AJ0UM2U
Second one is a two colour 'shroom. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AsOcutERHU
In this one the dude accidentally demonstrates why the proper eyewear is SO super important Wink.

I hope more people take this art up, it's an amazing skill with incredible results.
