My 2600° Paintbrush
    #518078 - 01/24/11 03:20 PM (5 years, 10 months ago)



Hi I'm theNPC. I blow glass.



This is my "paintbrush" a dual stage, triple mix GTT mirage with foot pedal.

I figured I'd show off some of my work to my new friends at the growery.org. Let me know whatcha think.

I don't have a ton of pictures at the moment and I don't get a ton of time to work being winter (my studio is a converted barn) and I'm in college, but I'll update the thread as often as possible.

That does look like a nice torch.  Mine has been in storage and needs to come out!  What do you mean by "triple mix".  I always used a oxy/prop mix.  Are you using a third gas or could that be a reference to the way it is combining the gases?

I've been blowing for about 3 years, previously on a small torch (gtt lynx). During that time I was away for about a year living in Orlando unable to work.

Now I'm back home (well at school technically) much more dedicated, with my upgraded flame.

"Triple mix" is the term coined by GTT for there patented technology of combining oxygen with propane, with a second oxygen. This gives there surface mix torches a flame hotter then even the traditionally hotter premix torches (gases mixed inside torch)

I've always wanted to get into this, but I have no idea how to start, and I sure as fuck don't have the money to start it :sad:

Ever since I was a kid, I remember doing a project on glass blowing when I was in like the 3rd grade.

How'd you start?

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Are you running two flow regulators off of one tank or two separate tanks?  My Red Max doesn't get THAT hot.  It would be cool to see what I could get done with that kind of heat.  Was there much of an adjustment when you upgraded?

The internet my good sir. I've spent months of my life reading forum and tutorials and saved about $1,000 to get a basic "MacGyver" studio with self made tools and whatnot. It's been a rollercoster ever hence forth.

The Oxygen is from 1 tank (I run liquid in the summer and compressed in the winter). The oxygen splits and goes both into the torch's centerfire and to a foot pedal that controls the outer fire.

When I upgraded, you had to be more careful with gravity and boiling colors... but the centerfire of the Mirage is the Lynx (my first torch). The foot pedal is like an instant MEEEEELLLLLLLTTTT!!!! button/ suntan button. It helps when doing prep-work and large pieces immensely. I've currently been working on vac-stack prep for wig-wag/reversal work

:facepalm: Yeah. I dunno, I'm a very visual person. I like pictoral teks and black-and-white instructions when I'm starting something new. I don't mind experimenting, but if there was a "Lets Blow Glass" DVD like the "Lets Grow Mushrooms" one, I'd totally already be into it :sad:

I might make one in the summer. I've been talking with an instructional video producer that likes the idea. I'll keep the thread updated if it happens.
