New Bamboo Rollers

Posted on May 19, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | Comments Off on New Bamboo Rollers

We are continuously trying to improve the bamboo rollers, to make them more user friendly.  Now, it comes with a full bottle of Diamond Glaze instead of the sampler ones, so you can make a lot of paper beads.  It has a new locking mechanism that will keep the paper tightly in place.

Instructions are better explained with a video 🙂

The kit includes; 2 sets of bamboo rollers, strips of pre-cut magazine paper, a full bottle of Diamond Glaze (2 oz), and a brush.

How To Make Paper Beads w/ a metal roller

Posted on Oct 29, 2009 in How-To's / Tutorials | 5 comments

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.
