HOW TO DO THIS BEADING:

You will need:

microbeads. The beadwork you see on the picture above was done with 1 tiny 10 gm baggie of silver beads (0.5 mm) and a few larger metallic green and clear green microbeads (1.2 mm).

crystal lacquer

fine liner brush

– toothpicks

– steady hand and lots of time

1) if you are not sure of design – trace it with a pencil or a needle – or just go for it and be just creative, that is what I like to do.

2) with a fine brush liner paint a thin line of crystal lacquer about 0.25″ long.

3) wet a toothpick and pickup a few microbeads

4) plop the microbeads onto the line

5) with a toothpick navigate them to their proper location one at a time (they will slide and float on crystal lacquer).

6) repeat as many times as needed

Keep your brush in water and have a napkin for wiping it. Crystal lacquer dries on it otherwise.
