yes i did, pictures of vase? and one picture in the thread itself.
i saw "First you have to find the translucent ones. Treat them to 400 degree's for 2 hours. Then cold water...
Jay"
i assume thats how you crackle a marble. but i want to know what the difference is between one that has and hasn't been crackled. doesn't matter now anyway, i googled it and found out on some craft website.
Sorry. You had to actually enter the word "marble" in the search bar, at the above link.

Yep, but you won't find 1" crackled ones on e-bay. :D

Crackled is just as it sounds. The marble is cracked all throughout. You must be more careful about reflections with a crackled one too...




Hello, I may want a few of these, how can you accept payment?
PayPal accepted... Send me a PM! :)

jayrob-

Do you make these or buy them from another source? the reason i ask is because im looking for a larger crackle glass marble (about 5 + inches) do you know where i can find one that large?

How many do you think you could ship without having to send them in a flat rate box?

I would guess about 6 marbles in normal shipping...




dfhrace, yes, I crackled them myself. But I cannot find the translucent ones any longer. (1") And yes, the largest marbles I have seen in uranium, are 1". But I know on e-bay, they have lots of other stuff made of vaseline glass. Just do a search for 'vaseline glass', and you well get a lot of listings...
