Here are some close ups of my newest beads! I hand paint each bead using a porcupine quill on recycled wooden beads. I use craft acrylic because it is thinner than regular acrylic and then dip the beads in a special thick dip on a contraption I made that rotates up to 100 beads at a time. Rotating is the only way to really get the dip evenly coated. They are lightweight and make great focal beads. I would love some feedback!

Thank you jenleahlynn. The swirls are my some of my favorite to paint as well - the cool thing is they are so lightweight because they are painted on wood. They look very heavy.

Not sure how I missed these, but I had to comment on them.  Absolutely gorgeous!  What else needs to be said.
