I recently joined a little group on Facebook called ‘ACEO’s and other small things’ They are having an open market weekend at the end of the month all about monsters and mermaids, my muse went into over drive although the rest of group seem to be doing ‘normal’ monsters….
…mine are all coming out cute and cuddly!
…even my vampires are purring and to be honest even though I am arachnophobic I wouldn’t mind the spider in this one – I was so tempted to put him in boots on all 8 legs!
Some time ago I made a tutorial on how to create alien/monster lampwork glass beads for Beads of Courage so I thought I would share that here, please feel free to use it, download it, stick it on the wall above your torch and create as many as you like, sell them if you wish but please make some for the kids on the programme too. You can view this tutorial – and another one by me as well as other lampwork artists – here
For how to donate the beads to the programme you can read here for the USA
and here for the UK
Enjoy the tutorial and happy monster making 🙂
