it's not so much the heart shape you're paying for. it's the info contained in that tutorial that shows how to keep amber purple colors nice and colorful under encasement.
it's worth it's weight in gold.

What do you want to make? Then folks can zero in on specifics. i.e. there are some excellent marble tutorials but if you are not into making marbles then a suggested tutorial for that task would be moot.

This will not help at all for someone wanting to BUY a tutorial. But I have maybe fifty or more FREE videos on my YouTube channel. Lewiscwilson. Go to the beginning There are some that are very advanced and run about an hour. Some showing the final moves on very large limited edition indian dacers. A few 3-4 minute videos of Barb doing her flowers, even a great hibiscus.
Also maybe ten times a week I post pics (15-29) of a real time sculpture I a working on and taking pics as it is being made. Indian dancers, fantasy, all kinds of things. Just g to my facebook feed and start looking back. been doing this for a couple of years.
Hope it helps.
If you are still wanting to buy a tutorial. ABR has my entire library of over fifteen titles on working soft or hard glass.
Lewis

Take advantage of Lewis Wilson's free videos. Be mindful that what he is teaching can be applied to a wide range of work and not just one specific project. He is a master at what he does and teaches with a wealth of knowledge and experience most of us will never achieve.

As far as Brent Graber's videos, in each video he teaches several different pendants and several approaches. He includes a tremendous amount of information in his videos, especially the first one. I guarentee you will learn far more than making a heart pendant. I have been a teacher's assistant for Brent in several of his classes. I have great respect for his teaching style and ability. He packs more information in then you will be able to ingest in one or two viewings of his videos. They are worth far more than what you will pay.
