Soft fuse with flow?

Looking for help on how to achieve the texture in this picture from Pinterest. So far, I have not been able to reproduce it.

Contour fuse should do it. maybe. somewhere between tack fuse and contour fuse temps. the trick is to layer the glass long to short. I use a SS cake pan to. hold the shape while I'm forming.

Thanks for the hints. Based on your comment of using a cake pan it appears it also needs to be dammed. I'll give it a try.

I use the cake pan to create the shape, don't need to cook it in that pan if you want organic and varied length. but I prefer even edge, I line the pan with kiln paper

Don- it's strips on edge, cut in different widths so some will flop and flow. Watching the kiln is crucial until you know what happens when- you want the stuff stuck firmly to itself and the edges rounded nicely.
