There are several ways you can make paper beads, rolling paper with a metal roller (available for purchase from Aubrey’s Beads, just $12, sold as kit) is just one of them. I like using them because the holes is not as large compared to paper beads made on a dowel or a skewer. I had this specially made with a bamboo holder, you get a good grip of the roller this way. The materials you need are the following and for instructions, please watch the video.
I am using Diamond Glaze to glue the paper and also as glaze/top coat. I like using Diamond Glaze because it gives it a glossy finish and it dries quickly.
