Default PETAL BEAD TUTORIAL and Variations by Magma Beads

Hello everyone,

This tutorial is a guide that will take you through all the steps necessary in order to achieve a beautiful petal bead with great depth.

This in not an implosion method.

I have been making these beads for quite some time now, I just kept trying different techniques and experimenting until I finally got it. Now i am ready to share this with everyone as i believe that this technique is the easiest in order to achieve this effect.
Once you know this method you will be able to make many different variations.

This tutorial includes:

- 84 Large detailed Pictures
- 35 Pages
- Step by step instructions
- Variations of the technique
- Lifetime support


GET YOUR TUTORIAL HERE

Thank you all for looking
Régis

This is a great tutorial and I highly recommend it. It is a combination of the methods I have used in the past but I have never been able to achieve the depth that I wanted. Regis explains exactly how to do this with great photos and illustrations and very clear instructions.
Now I just have to try to make them smaller... not the great big honkers I end up with!!!
Thanks Regis.

I have been asked by a few people if this was an implosion method, just want to clarify that it is not an implosion technique

Just put my first petal bead into the kiln, it's about an inch or bigger in size.

Now, I will try to make smaller ones.

It sure was fun and the directions are great, I can't believe I did it!

Thanks, Regis, as you can see I used Moretti black and it bled dark purple. I was hoping it would be a pretty purple though.

I didn't think it would turn out so good on my first try or I would have used my better glass. Thank you for the tutorial. I have tried to make these for years and usually give up after a few failures.

I can see where these could get very addictive because they are so much fun to make!

Regis, I have some of the ones I made yesterday, also no where near perfect, in the Customer Service section and it is titled Where can I find good Rubino, lol.

I was trying to make watermelon beads in case it is hard to tell .

Thanks Regis - I hope to be at the torch next week, so will take a crack at it then. I have just read the tutorial, and it is great - I see now where I was going wrong. Thanks for doing such a great job of the instructions.

First bead made using this tut - Do not have a marble mold, and am finding the beads for me to be coming out longer, instead of round. Also think I want to do fewer rows of petals with more clear inbetween to give more seperation.

BUT THIS IS A FANTASTIC TUTORIAL -
Great instructions, photos, etc. Very professionally put together.
