fredlight will become famous soon enough
Start with:

12mm blowtube attached to a section(3 inch) of bigger tube,say 32 or 38 standard.

Heat the end of the larger section of tube up to about half of this larger section. Blow out into a lightbulb shape.Draw design on the outermost hemisphere only.Heat carefully and evenly until design sinks into glass and outermost hemisphere melts flat. Implode further or rip off now, your choice.

I am still studying this technique myself. I'm about 50/50 with this one.Have fun!
