Can you believe, 570 tiny paper beads are strung to make this ten strand bangle.  It took a lot of paper beads and a lot of patience!

    I didn’t realize the beads were to be preped by coating it with glue before applying Vibrance. What kinds of glue do you recommend ?
    Thank you for your time.

    • Hi Cathy,

      Any kind of tacky glue, diamond glaze, Elmer’s Glue or Mod Podge. I hope this helps…….Janice

  4. Hi Janice,
    As far as durability goes,
    Is it better to dip the paper
    beads or use a paint brush
    to apply Vibrance?
    Your ideas are very inspiring.

    • Hi Patti,

      It really does not matter, if I am doing big beads I would like to brush them specially if it’s not that many. The thing to remember is to prep the bead by coating it with glue before applying Vibrance and you can reapply three times or until you’re happy with the result. Just like making special beads you need to keep an eye on the bead make sure that there is no clumping, etc. Thanks for the visits. Janice
