Well, I dragged (sp?) up this thread and asked a question, but people thought differently.


Butterly Murrini (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=103165)

Soooooooooooooo, my question was this:

Doe's anyone out there know of a tutorial for making these things? I know I could take a class, but even a video, book, whatever.

I've made a few, but they come out like pieces of wings, flowers, something really really weird.

I just wanna learn!

Hi Chris!

I'm not sure if these would be of any help.

One quick way to simplify a subject for murrini: use an image from a pre-schooler's coloring book. Nice, large simple imagery. give you a place to start thinking about sections that can be joined.

Thanks Joan, You just wouldn't believe the amount of glass I've "wasted" trying this. Argggggggg! I have the most simple drawing but I still can't get it to work. Just frustrated.

Thanks,
Chris
