little tutorial...don't laugh girls!!


I beseech you! Be lenient, this is my first tutorial in English!!! maybe some words will be wrong.. but i think the pics are explicites..



well!! what do we need to make this hose bead??

- transparent PVC hose,

- gold(silver, copper) leaf.

-2 beads, barely larger than the diameter of your hose

- a little brush.

-and wire to make links

lets go.. put the gold leaf inside the tube,
.with the tip of the brush, make small circular movements. With static electricity, the paper will stick itself , flatten it with the tip of the brush.

put as much gold leaf that you want ..
you will get something like that ..




Then you take the wire, make a nice loop and put a bead+tube+ another bead , reseal it with a nice loop.
Et Voilà!!



Of course you can just put ONE bead on the top of the tube, and make a kind of little bell.

You can also put fusible film, fibers, beads, paper or whatever you want in the tube ..

is it clear??
