How To Make Lampwork Cabochons

I’ve been wanting to put this tutorial out for some time now. You know how it is though. One thing leads to another and before you know it, it’s been months since you planned to do that one thing.

Last week I received another email asking “just how do you make your cabochons?”. So that what was my kick in the behind to get busy and finish what I started months ago.

Good news. If you’ve been wanting to learn how to make lampwork cabochons, it’s done and it’s ready!

lampwork-cabochon-tutorialAll my other tutorials have been PDFs but this one I thought needed to be in video format. Some things just have to be seen in “live action” to get the right technique shown.

If you purchase this tutorial please feel free to give me any feedback or ask any questions. Making cabochons is second nature to me so I may have unknowingly not thought to mention something or explained something well enough. There will be more video tutorials on the way so any feedback is much appreciated.

Now go buy the tutorial, learn a new technique and make lots of beautiful cabochons. When your done be sure to come back and post your cabochon photos in the comments.

Blowing A Lampwork Glass Vessel

I came across an old video I made in 2010 of me blowing a glass vessel during one of my live studio broadcasts. I thought it would be fun to bring it back to the light as I am sure there are plenty of  lampwork artists out there who would find this tutorial of sort very helpful in getting started with blowing glass vessels on a torch. An artist can never have too many skills in their bag of tricks, right?

Seeing this old video brought back some good memories of my old studio. I now feel the need to start blowing my little vessels again.

View and purchase my lampwork blown glass vessels.

If you have any questions please leave a post in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer them.
