(17 customer reviews)

Use polymer clay to create lightweight and durable pendants and beads that resemble glass lampwork. This 70 page downloadable course contains 143 photographs to guide and inspire you as you make faux lampwork creations from polymer clay. This course is complete enough for beginners and fun enough for experts in polymer clay. There’s even a bonus project showing how to use cane slices to make glass-effect headpins and charms.
This isn’t just a list of steps. I give you tons of extras that will answer your questions before you even know to ask them! The clear photographs show every detail, clarifying possible confusion points and showing exactly what to do each step of the way.

There’s an extensive resources section with links to suppliers around the world for the materials and tools I use in this course. Don’t worry, though, no special materials or equipment are required. You’ll likely have everything on hand to get started, and my suggested materials for optimal results are easily purchased from suppliers I’ve sourced for you.

    I love this tutorial! I don’t see how I can fail at this. Excellent information, and images. Very well-written (as usual). I love her tutorials. I have so much confidence in trying this. All my gajillion questions were answered, but especially the what NOT to do and Why ones. I can’t wait to start on a project.

  2. olfantasia.crafting

    Ginger’s photos for this course make you want to discover what’s inside. I bought the course and found it very interesting. It’s very detailed and well explained. I’m definitely going to try out this technique, as the results are amazing. Thank you Ginger!

    Great tutorial. I always love Ginger’s thorough explanations, wonderful pictures and overall guidance. Have been a fan for years! Thanks for continuing to encourage and teach us polymer peeps new and delightful ideas.

  4. Bekee

    Holy cats, is Ginger thorough! I shouldn’t be surprised, though, because content on The Blue Bottle Tree is just as thoughtful and detailed. The descriptions of clay options and what to expect from each, coating choices and how those will turn out, and recommended techniques were helpful for completing this nifty tutorial and will be exceedingly useful in my future projects.

    Okay, so it’s January 2021 and I’m into my second year playing with polymer clay. I love books for every kind of learning but I decided to order some of Gingers online tutorials. I’m a real fan and I particularly like her scientific approach to polymer clay. Their first class, easy to use and as always full of little titbits that put them in a class of there own. Ginger is always happy to share her knowledge of polymer clay and if you’re like me and you want to progress hitch your wagon to Ginger and buy a tutorial or four!

  6. Andrea Schlickbernd

    The ONLY reason I’m giving 4 stars is because I wasn’t finding another way to contact Ginger to notify her that I was having a very difficult time finding liquid clear/translucent polymer to start the tutorial I purchased. The ONLY place I found it in stock was on Amazon and it was CRAZY expensive ($11-12 per 2 ounce bottle). I only want to notify you of this shortage so others who purchase the tutorial aren’t as disappointed as me! I’m guessing it’s due to COVID-19 and all.
    I am looking forward to trying the tutorial once the clear/translucent becomes more accessible.

      I’m sorry that you’re disappointed. Every tutorial has multiple links with my email address. Every email you have received comes directly from me. Just reply. Every customer receives three emails asking for them to reply and contact me with any questions. I’m also readily available on Facebook and Instagram and through the customer service link on my website. There are several finishing recommendations covered in the tutorial as an alternative to liquid clay. Every tutorial also provides a list of good suppliers around the world.

    A great tutorial from Ginger as usual. Everything meticulously explained, and inspiring photos. Thank you Ginger!

  8. Barbara

    Another great tutorial by Ginger. the tutorial is well written and a great example of the through research and testing Ginger does. This is a must have tutorial to expand anyone’s skills.

  9. Gill Scott

    As usual Ginger’s Tutorial was extremely informative and well written. Simply said her tutorial’s are a great investment – worth every penny. Thanks Ginger!

  10. Marlies Möckli

    This tutorial is a must for all polymer clay enthusiasts! As in all her tutorials, Ginger’s information and instruction are as usual excellent and easy to understand. It is also easy to read and absolutely not boring! Only one way to know: buy it, you will not regret it!

  11. adams.tammyc

    Another well written and illustrated technique tutorial from Ginger. As with her other tutorials, she covers the topic -of faux glass in this case- with a breadth and depth you’re not likely to find from other authors. Even when I think I know how a technique works, I learn something new from Ginger’s take. The step-by-step guide is easy to follow, and the best part for me is the detailed coverage of what you must and mustn’t do to get the desired effect, and can or can’t expect from various materials. Ginger’s tone is also very pleasant, with the right touch of humor.

  12. Maude

    Thank you for your wonderfully clear and concise tutorials Ginger. You are such a source of information-I love how you test finishes etc and make my claylife so much easier. Your Faux Lamp Work tutorial opened my mind to all sorts of possibilities-which I plan to explore throughout 2018. I cannot use enough superlatives-many many thanks!

  13. Bonni Poch

    Holy moly! This is an excellent tutorial and the first I’ve purchased from the Blue Bottle Tree. Certainly not the last. I’ve only been playing with polymer for a few months now and following Ginger’s instructions was easy and made the process so much fun. My technique needs a little practice, but this is definitely a technique that I will bring forward into my polymer work.

    Thanks for a fantastic tutorial, Ginger! I look forward to adding many more of your ebooks to my virtual library.

  14. Melody Hill

    I have loved every tutorial I have ever gotten from Ginger. Her information and explanations are always thorough and easy to understand. I have made lampworked beads, and the result I got from this tutorial makes the actual glass ones I made look sad. As always, Ginger’s customer service is awesome and she is quick to answer any questions you may have. Definitely a must-have for your tutorial library!

  15. Gillian

    Another fine tutorial. Excellent images, and really well-written, as always. Lots of tips and optional methods, so everyone can get good results.

  16. Gloria Borrero

    My husband and I love to play with PC, we have actually made over $3,000 PC in jewelry sales. There are always new techniques that encourage us to desire to continue, we get lots of inspiration from The Blue Bottle Tree blogs and books. I have a thing for Lampwork beads, but a pocket that can’t afford them. This book is the newest of my collection, when I saw it I knew I had to add it to my collection. It is great! Thank you.

    I admit, some tutorials I have bought have not been worth it. They may be nothing more than techniques that are available for free or they are so complex that it’s not something I would ever tackle or there is a hidden obscure product that was not mentioned in the description. With Ginger Davis Allman’s Faux Lampwork Polymer Clay Tutorial you don’t have to worry about that. This tutorial s very much a time saver if you are interested in faux lampworking. Heeding the steps found within, I was able to achieve satisfying results quickly. I also found suggestions I might not have thought about otherwise. In this tutorial Ginger Davis Allman’s incorporates her usual style which includes science and logic behind the techniques. Now, that ,is something more than you get with many other paid tutorials and well worth it. I have few qualms purchasing a tutorial by Ginger Davis Allman if it is something that interests me. As with most tutorial writers she is responsive to questions or comments.
