Wow, those look great! Best paper beads I've ever seen in fact. They hardly even look like paper at all! Well done.

These are amazing! I love the colors and the detail, it'd be so pretty in jewelry.

The first ones I designed and printed myself.

The bicone beads are made from regular magazine paper, but finished in my own special 'ultimate paper beads tutorial' way  Wink

The 'love' ones are also magazine paper.

The rest of the tubular beads are made from scrapbook paper leftovers.

Those are great. My favorites are the first and third sets. What do you seal them with?

I use regular paper art varnishes, try them all out: a layer of this, a layer of that, it's mainly experimenting.
Oh, and I used some embossing powders too, I think
