I found this tutorial, and made some a million beads!







I think they turned out pretty cool, they look more like clay than paper! What do you think?

How did you paint yours to get that effect, or was it printed paper you used?

Nope, I used plain white paper (I'm not actually sure how printed paper would work with the flour paste), I just painted my beads with a golden marker before painting over with acrylics, then I painted over that too with this cool glue varnish.

My great grandma used to do something like that, but with newspaper and regular white glue. Similar effect but a wee bit greener.  Wink
