Great idea, Renee - I haven't ever sold anything there, so it might take a day or two to figure all of that out.

Well here is my first attempt at one of these beads. Its clear where I need to practice more as the blemishes in this bead are extremely obvious. And I definitely need to read up on encasing, but overall, this was a tremendously fun bead to make. I think I did pretty good for an overly ambitious beginner. I'm going to try another one tomorrow.







Here is the part where my encasing distorted everything...

christopher - I think you have done a great job I know that i sucked a encasing, but this tut has helped me tremendously.....remember PPP ( practice, practice, practice) it totally helps.......I really like how you got such deep crevises between your colors.....I think i need more practice on that.....

do you put lots more transparent color compared to the opaque?
or should they be very similar in size dots? to get the 3-d look?

I dont know what I did to tell you the truth. I know that I used all transparent colors and layered them over white. So it was black base, white dot, trans red, white dot, trans orange, white dot, trans yellow and so on. And I left out the periwinkle. As for the 3-d look... your guess is as good as mine. I bet you i'll never get that look again...LOL

I do know that I didn't completely cover the white dots with the transparent colors though. I used the transparent stringer color and just went along the edge and didn't overlap.

They do look great, Christopher! I love that look too - using white/transparent combos. It has a VERY dramatic effect, and there's more variation in the color (deeper in the center, lighter on the outsides of the petals) when you do that - love that.

And Renee - I just opened an Etsy shop and have 10 tutorials for sale (anyone feel free to "heart" me if you like)!

I bought the tut a couple of weeks ago and haven't tried it yet. But with such an inspiring thread, I'm going to give it a go tomorrow morning. Beautiful beads everyone!

Can't wait for this, Amy! I'm encasing idiot.

I'm working on a very short (and free) tutorial for casing with clear when you have a design underneath which might help some with this bead (I haven't forgotten about you Tammy)! I've just been so busy with school starting up again after winter break - I'm trying to work on it here and there when I can.

Thanks again everyone!

I finally had some time to photograph my rainbow beads, and althoug it's not as pretty as yours I had a great time making them. I'm planning on making a big chunky rainbow bracelet out of them if only I had 36 hours in a day

Hi everyone! I thought this would be a good place to post this (I'll make a note on my website too).

I've had a couple of e-mail glitches lately, and want to give everyone a heads up on what to expect when you buy my tutorial.

If you buy it from my website: As soon as you pay for it (in Pay Pal), it should automatically forward you to the tutorial. If you buy it from my website and you do not receive it right away, contact me immediately/PM me here.

If you purchase it through Etsy: I have to send it to you the traditional way. Please give me a couple of hours, but I try to send it within minutes (I check my e-mail often unless I'm away). If you buy the tutorial from Etsy and you don't receive it within an hour or two, contact me immediately/PM me here.


Like I said, I've had a couple e-mail glitches and people have waited a day or two for their tutorials, when I thought they were sent and taken care of.

I'm VERY thankful for LE's PM system because it is a sure-fire way to be able to get in touch with one another.

So, long story short - when you buy my tutorial, you should not have to wait a day to receive it, so let me know. I want you to have it ASAP!!!!

Thanks a bunch,
Amy

Just a quick FYI - I bought this last night and it never came. I finally looked in my spam box and there it was, sent immediately after I bought it. If you buy it and it doesn't show up, make sure to check your spam box.

Great tutorial

Rats, Traci! Do you happen to know if there is anything I can do on my end to keep it from going into others' spam folders?

I'm glad you found it though!

And thanks a bunch - Glad you like it!!!

LYN!!!!!!!

Do what I do! (Won't Pipyr love me for this! lol)

I pay for the tute. Seller sends it to Pipyr's computer. She puts it on a disk for me and I take it to Staples and pay them to print it out into a spiral book for me.

Boy, I owe the Pipyr-meister a few cd discs. (The grouchy old Grandma won't let me buy her any though!)

Great tutorial! Bought it the other day and finally got to play and take a picture of my first try. This is truly my first try at the bead, Amy's instructions are very good.

Thank you so much for offering this Amy, I really enjoyed it and I look forward a whole bunch of great beads in my future!

The photo isn't great, but I like the bead!

Ok i have a question of everyone.

Janet's bead has very concave dots of color. Mine never turn out like this but i do like the look. How does one go about making dots like this where the underneath color bends like that.

Small white dots with more color on top?
big white dots with less color on top?
same size dots?

Someone please help.....

Janet by the way awesome bead!!!

Thanks StOrM, but I'm sure if you've bought the tutorial Amy would be happy to answer any questions you may have about her technique. If you haven't bought it, I highly recommend it. It's only 12 bucks and well worth the money. These beads have been driving me crazy for years and now it's a piece of cake!

I have the tut....but i am still trying to figure this one thing out....thats why i asked.

Amy's beads are very well done....there is not white showing and the depth between each dot or color is very smooth....where as your bead has depth to it.....which i kind of like...

I think it might be the photo, but I'm not sure. Perhaps if you IM Amy, she can give you more info.

No thank you..... I was just looking for everyone's opinion. I know everyone has there different styles or techniques that work for them and i was just wondering if anyone has come across what i am asking.

I know Amy reads her thread and i am sure she will give me her input. Thank you for your help and concern.

try putting a dot of clear over each before going on to the next color. that might do it, it works in encased flowers.
