Could you please upload a recording of your bend experiments? Mitch has created a section for uploads in the forum section.
In the beginning It helped me a lot to have a tool at hand to see if I succeeded. It’s called Bendometer and available for Android and iOS: http://www.harpsoft.com/. There are other tools out there as well, have a look.
It took me 3-6 months till the bends started to sound the way I hoped they some day would.
Perhaps it helps to start bending with a lower key harp (A major) – they react quicker to bends.
