The Ruffler Shaper mashes a ruffle pattern into glass that can also be easily turned into a bird wing or fish fin. There are two versions. One version has a straight end to nest up tight to a cylinder shaped bead or straight edged form. The other has a curve to it to more closely follow a curved form. Either will work on any type of base form nicely.
The Straight End Ruffler was used on the cylinder shaped bead. Both of its ruffles were applied lengthwise and parallel to the bead hole. One of the ruffles was gently reheated and pulled over to the side to create a stylized bird wing or fish fin.
