No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Lengthen the wick and you will get a lot more smoke quickly, till it burns down.

I know this is ancient history, but there is every chance that Cathy B has guessed correctly in Reply #8. I cannot see the sig in the photo - too small and out of focus. However...

Julio Santos did make many paperweights (and other objects) full of bubbles. I don't have any such weights myself to show, but three such can be seen on the websites of other Australian collectors here and here and here.

A Google search for images turns up several others, mostly from recent ebay listings.
