That is true, in my rush I should have made that part specific to Lindean Mill's first attempts at making flat panels from a blown Graal cylinder.

General failure can occur when the design does not work as intended.

My knowledge of Orrefors graal (the original) is very small. They have used the technique long enough to do it without problems.

Right, that makes sense, it was just that KevH quoted from the Hoglund website:

--- Quote ---Here the image is first painted on the small initial bubble , then trapped between layers of hot glass before being blown into its final form by Ola

So, I was thinking it was hot...

I think my brains crumbling due to over stimulation... :shock:  :o

Bill G:
Ulrica Hydman Vallien, the wife of Bertil Vallien and an accomplished artist in may mediums including glass,
in her book from 1990,  describes the "kabal" technique  where Ulrica uses Paradise paint on the blank
after the design has been cut. The blank is then overlayed with clear crystal and blown out into the final form most often a heavy vase.

She also defines another method. The blank after being cut and painted is overlayed with a colored glass rather than the clear crystal. Cold workers then cut away to present the images in the glass. It si called a Jewel Technique.

Thought the group would be interested in this development.
