Randy, that's a nice start. The hard part is going to be focusing on what you actually want to make, and deciding on how you need to practice. There is a lot to offer in the world torch wise, so sometimes it can be hard to see the forest for the trees.

Sculpture wise, if that's the direction you want to go, stick with the clear to start. It's cheap and easy, then work towards color. Also, ventilation becomes considerably more of a concern with the color, the heat of the torch can boil some fairly nasty gas in your face if you're not careful.

Carmen Lozar and Emilio Santini were some of the best sculpture teachers I had. Kit Paulson and Micha Evans are incredible networkers. Nobody does hollow like Parramore, Eskuche is pretty incredible too. Karina Guevin and Cedric Ginart are both tremendous resources from up north. Again, look for people that are making what you want to learn.
