Smackers BIGGIES! ...

BIGGIES are larger diameter murrini that are great for fusing, enamel work or larger beads. Even in mosaics! (They make great flowers and eyes!) The nice thing about BIGGIES is that, being larger, they're a bit easier to handle and also the details of the layers, colors and stripes show up really well.       A good, strong stripe and contrast to hold up under encasement and fusing/enameling.

How Many: 10

Colors: Green shades,Black and a bit-o- Blue

Size: ranges approx. from 5mm- 7mm across


To use: No special treatment for these babies. Simply heat a spot on your bead, waft the murrini slice in the flame to warm it up a but and stick it in the spot you want it in. Alternate warming and flattening (not too fast!) until you get the look you want and that's that! Leave it as-is or top it with a clear blob for a lens effect. Try twisting the edges w/ a clear stringer, heat and drag through the center for a feathered look, the possibilities are endless!....Play!! Experiment! CREATE
***Please note that I am NOT a fuser so I really can give no advice on the art of fusing whatsoever. I do know that many artists buy my murrini for fusing with much success. Mixing COEs can also be done in small amounts (in lampworking anyway. We do this quite often with no problems at all) But that is the extent of what I know. So please consult a book or an expert as to the exact process.
