I have a question that maybe the glass-blowers on the forum will be able to answer - although I won't be surprised if a few of our knowledgeable posters can answer it as well :roll: :wink:
How do paperweight makers make the 'frothy' glass such as is shown in this Gino S weight? :? http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/albums/userpics/10048/normal_Gino_S_weight.jpg
I know how 'controlled bubbles' are put in, having seen it done (by both Adam A and by Alastair Macintosh) but how is this 'foam' technique achieved?
I ask because I have a couple of the Gino S flower weights and am intrigued to know how they are made! Also, I have just bought a new one which is a large ball of 'froth' with Christmas Trees in - well, 'tis (approaching) the season! :wink: :lol:
