This is so cute! What does the quenching do and how do you do it?


glitter it, no seriously, just add glue and glitter, no one will notice

Thanks, both of you.  Smiley

roses are red, I've only been at it since mid-Jan of this year, so it's not out of your reach to try, you know.  I did do this as a kid, about 15 years ago, but that barely counts.  I learned a lot from books by Angie Scarr and Sue Heaser, plus tutorials online.  I'm thinking of doing some tutorials of my own eventually, because my methods are semi-different from a lot of what I've seen.  The discussion section here is a great place to learn and to ask questions.  If you're interested, why not try it?

bubblegum_phoenix, quenching is putting a piece into an icewater bath right out of the oven.  It does wonders for translucent pieces.  It really clears them up.  I did it for this to boost the translucence of the flesh of the watermelon.
