is it possible to dye glass beads? i have these small clear seed beads and i just have way too much so i was wondering if it was possible to dye them and how?!

and also i have some opaque red seed beads which i also have many of, i do realize it would be harder to dye, but is there a way i can paint them?

thank you for all your help guys!

I don't think it's really possible, but how about using coloured thread (stringing wire, artistic wire etc) with the clear seed beads, for a different effect.  Smiley
