This digital download PDF tutorial, the second volume of Murrini Simplified, is a recipe book of color combinations using COE 104 glass for making murrini with frits and reactive glass. It contains a cane-making demonstration, over 100 recipes, three mini tutorials, and several tips I found going through this process to help you achieve better results.

This tutorial also addresses other issues such as:

How to handle colors that spread or bleed
Several techniques for dealing with glass that devitrifies
Suggestions on handling glass that tends to boil
How to avoid burning out color when melting in frit
Successfully combining glass and frits of different COE's
Techniques to determine if colors will work well together in murrini cane
Ways to achieve realistic, flower-like color variations in murrini
How to cut straight murrini chips

No special tools are required, and this tutorial uses glass from several manufacturers: Creation is Messy, Effetre (Moretti), Reichenbach, Vetrofond and Zimmerman. Due to the wide variety and number of recipes, you probably already have many of the colors used in several of the recipes.

This tutorial is designed for the intermediate flameworker who is familiar with all aspects of working glass safely in an open flame, with the step-by-step demonstration of making a murrini cane included for those not as experienced in murrini making.

What others have to say:

“The recipes are fantastic, the techniques are creative and interesting, with incredible variety and something for every look! “ ~Angie, Mitosis Glass

“After making murrini like a madwoman from the recipes in the first tutorial, I was thrilled to discover that the second was another easy to follow tutorial with more delicious recipes and eye catching pictures. I've been torching for about 3 1/2 years now, but anyone with an understanding of basic lampwork techniques will find this tutorial a breeze to follow. While it makes a great companion to her original murrini tutorial, it certainly can stand on its own and I highly recommended it."”  ~Allison Marston

“This tutorial has a lot of really exciting pointers on the making of murrini. The examples are really wonderful and some are really breathtaking.” ~Jo Rebeka, Frit Diva

“Rachel Childer’s murrini recipes are fantastic and expansive. Several of her murrini capture the strengths of Messy Colors- such as Peace’s density or Hades as a base to bring out the best in silver glasses. Checking out Rachel’s recipes will save murrini enthusiasts much time.” ~Kathy Seamands, Creation Is Messy
