How is "inside out" glass blown?

  1. I am taking a class on basic torchwork in a few weeks and am studying how to blow glass (through online research mostly) and am curious about blowing inside out pipes. I assumed the glass was opened up, the color applied to the inside, and then the glass shaped, but a friend of mine claimed that they actually apply the color on the outside and then literally pull the glass inside out. Is that true or just bs? Also, to get really thick pipes, do you just start with thick tubing or do you thicken it by hand? Thanks guys!
