Snowflakes
 
I've been seeing these beads lately that look like they have tiny snowflake decals on them. Any ideas who sells these decals? Sort of like these nail stickers.

Can you post or link to a pic of one of the beads?

Are you sure they aren't murrini?

Chocake 2015-02-07 7:04pm

I had snowflake murrini that looked like that. They were from Chase designs. I don't think they make them anymore, but you could look. And it seems like Lori&Kim had snowflake murrini recently, too...

They would be similar to these decals.

Allicat, I can't post a picture of the bead of interest, because it is sold now, and the image has been removed.

Eileen and Chocake, they definitely weren't murrini.

My experience is AAE Art Glass or Delphi have the largest selection.

Here is what Delphi has ... I didn't find any on Tanya's site (AAE).

These decals: do you place them on the finished cold bead and that's it, or do you have to reanneal the bead after the decal is applied ?

MagpieGlass 2015-02-08 6:02pm

You place them on the bead after it is annealed and cleaned and refire at a low temp. I have some decals ... just haven't used them yet.

They are mostly designed for fusing but AAE in particular has some low fire ones that should work for beads ... particularly if you stick with 90/96 COE glass.

cbs dichroic also sells snowflake decals on glass that you can fuse or torch into your pieces. Multiple coe's - I use the 96 coe's all the time in fusing. don't remember if they have in 104 but they do in 96, 90 and float.

Laura, I will most likely be using 104 class. I'll check the details with AAE. OMG! I just found out that AAE is within 25 miles of me! Wootwoot!

I'm soooo jealous.

I have done some snowflakes, but mine are hand painted.
