Dragonflybeads’s Weblog

Finally finished up these bug beads from a class I took with Margaret Zinser

Margaret’s class was great. It is quite the process to make these beads. First you make a black blank. Then you decide where you will put white under color. Then you dry the white. Then paint and shade the colors. Then reheat the beads in the kiln. Then grab them out and torch the enamels and finally anneal. Most I was quite pleased with. Not sure I will ever do more though. Here us he masters website.
