Default ''RAPHAELLE'' Tutorial



I got many questions on what color I used to make this set. So, here's my little secret! Not really hard to acheive!
Feel free to experiment and have fun!



1. Make a thin barrel of Effetre Cooper Green
2. Add a layer of Double Helix Kalypso (thin or thick, effect will be different) In this set, that was a thin layer)
3. Reduce until really shiny (have to stay shiny!)
4. Encase the shiny Kalypso in clear

5. I used Zoozii's Crystal press but you can do any shape you want!

TADA!

Enjoy!

ETA: Please, share your creations!

LOL, when I read the title with RAPHAELLE in it I had envisioned us learning how to make a Ninja turtle!

Those beads are goregeous and your so generous to share, thanks.

I can't wait for you girls (and guys) to post pictures! It can very well be used as a base bead.

Some asked me about the name Raphaelle. This is my daughter's name. She is my inspiration so that's where the name comes from.

Wow those are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing this.

Liz can I ask you what size crystal press you used?
I'm trying to decide between a zooziis crystal press and the stubby bicone cg beadroller.
Thanks

Mine did not turn out well - tan color, must have been too long in the flame.

Shirley, Did you encased while Kalypso was still very shiny? It have to stay reduced all along.

Can you post a picture?
