Tired of distorting your beads while creating them, check out this tutorial on custom texture tube beads made with polymer clay

We love unique beads and jewelry components so when I found this video by Sona Grigoryan, I just had to share.

She takes lots of time creating her own textures which are awesome, but what I really like is how she makes and cures and core bead. Then she covers it with the textures she creates.

Wheather you want to create your own textures or use stamps, stencils, & imprint tools, or hand tools to create them its a super idea to create them on a core bead,  to prevent distortion while your working.

Just imagine all the fun finishes you can use on these beads like paints, inks, waxes, inka gold and swellegant oh my!

So what is Discharging?

Discharging is basically the process of removing color from a garment vs dyeing which is adding color. Add new layers of color dimention to your projects, start fresh and dye an old item something totally different. So many possibilities and super easy to do, we’ll show you how!
