On Jan 20 at 1 PM Mountain Standard Time there will be a free lampworking demo.The demo will be to test a system Crystal Myths is working with to find out how feasable it will be to do classes over the internet, live.
This first demo will be 90 minutes. The first 30 minutes Lewis C Wilson will make soft glass beads. He will also be using an OSGI oxygen generator as the oxy source.So if you wonder about using a generator then this may answer some questions. This first part will be VERY basic, truely for beginners.It will show the basics of simple soft glass mandrel beadmaking.
The second 30 minutes will be on moving into borosilicate glass and will show work done with a lynx and borosilicate glass. This will move quiclky from an intro into doing simple boro beads to doing fast production boro beads.
The third 30 minutes will be Gerry Colman making a soft glass marble. He is one of the best at teaching the first attemts at marble making.
The entire 90 minutes will be shot through didynium filters and feel free to copy and share with friend. There will be a disclaimer about copying with intent to sell.
This is done just to check out this system. It is free to you. You will need to go to http://www.crystalmyths.com . On the home page click on button saying " Click here for webcam ".
When inside you will asked to enter your e-mail and then enter.
In the future we hope to use this system to have classes and demos where people would pay for a three or four hour demo either with a code or credit card.
