Ok, I am diggin this lampwork thing, and dang-it, I think I am getting
pretty good! I can't get this "plunging" thing down though...
Is it hot poker/hot bead, cold poker/hot bead, cold poker/warm bead, etc???
Should I wait until the glow just goes off the bead and then plunge? Should
I heat the poker at all? How do you get the pokes even - as when you say,
poke the first 2 holes, the rest of the bead cools....how do you heat the
bead enough to make it pliable (pokable) without losing your other pokes??
These questions sound very strange, but I just can't master it !
