So this is a VERY long time in coming. I had said a few days to my Yahoo group ABC altered book club.
First I made beads according to this tutorial.
1)Put dried bead on dowel. pencil, skewer, whatever it will fit snuggly.
2)Roll bead on a clear embossing ink pad such as Versamark.
3)Dip inked bead in UTEE.
4)Heat with heat gun.
5)Repeat steps 2 and 3.
6)Roll/dip in embossing powdwers, glitters, and PearlEx mixture.
7)Heat again...repeat if desired.
I generally work on one half of the bead at a time...let it cool then turn around and do the other side. I have 4-5 beads going at a time.
