Stretching a lac tube as a pipe for blowing.
In order to work very closely to the material and gain more control, it is possible to blow the shape from the shape.
First you will need to gather the material with a tube and centre it. Then re-heat the the material next to the tube and start stretching a ‘neck’ from the material.
Detach the ‘neck’ from the tube.
Now you will be able to start blowing the material from the ‘neck’.
Technique was discovered in a collaboration with Adam Salvi.
