So, I tried this idea again, feeling a bit more confident... I just decorated the outside of a bead I made using a syringe of Art Clay Silver and Dipped it into the microbeads. I tried 2 different colors this time with similar color changing results. I think I am going to test some new colors in a kiln and see what happens to them. I like the way this came out though, it has sort of an olive green hue to it. (hard to tell from the pictures) The first shot is a before shot so you can see what color the beads were before the firing.
