Reptile Pattern Hollow Lentil Bead Polymer Tutorial (Intro Vol-074)

Reptile Pattern Hollow Lentil Bead Polymer Tutorial (Intro Vol-074)

Hi guys this is Cindy Lietz, your Polymer
Clay Tutor and this is the introduction video to my paid tutorial series; Reptile Patterned
Hollow Bead Neckwire. Now in this tutorial I’m gonna show you
a lot of really neat techniques. First of all I’m gonna show you how to make
a cane that will give you this really great looking reptile pattern that can be done in
several different colorways. I’ve got a Green and Brown and the Purple
that I’ll be showing you about. Then we’re gonna be using that cane to make
these hollow lentil shaped beads in a variety of sizes and were gonna be using the Sculpey
Hollow Bead maker. But I’m gonna also show you techniques for
making them with alternative materials if you don’t have one of these available to you. Then we’re… I’m gonna show you how to make a neckwire
that is very unique. I’ve got a couple of different styles here
but you can wear this… it unhooks here and you just wear it around your neck and it is
really arty and cool looking. Now like I said I’m gonna show you how to
make the different beads but you can make them in whatever color you like. And you can also do them in a double-sided
way which makes it really versatile, and let me just give you a close up of this pattern,
it’s got a lot of depth and sparkle to it and it’s just wonderful looking and it feels
great; these have been sanded and buffed to a high shine, and you can use these beads
for lots of different types of projects. I’ve got a pair of earrings here, done with
the Green colors but then on the other side they’re Purple so that they can be worn
either way. I’ve also used the beads to make a linked
necklace here and I used the larger ones as focals and kind of an asymmetrical design. And then these ones are reversible as well
and I kinda used an experimental kind of pattern with some gold and it has quite a great look
to it as well, gives the necklace a completely different look. And then I also have a pendant here, so if
you drill these beads from the top side and hang a bail on it, it makes a wonderful looking
pendant and this one is double-sided as well. So you’re gonna learn a ton in this tutorial
and I think you’re very much going to enjoy it. We’ll see you in the next video of this series.

    This looks like such fun. I was wondering Cindy if you could let me know an update on your experience with your new Atlas pasta machine. My Makins just broke not 5 minutes ago and appears unfixable. Do you still have streak-free clay with the Atlas? Thanks.

  10. Kerryanne Boer says:

    I'd love to know what kind of wire you use to make necklaces. Not these ones in particular. Is that discussed in your tutorial?

  11. Kehkashan Hussaini says:

    I wish we didnt have to pay for watching how to do it. i was really looking forward to watching it

  12. StarStealingLily says:

    I was wonderjng how you got them that shiny. I know you sand and buff your items, but they look glazed. If they are glazed, is it possible to get them to shinealmost as much as these pieces with sanding up to a grit of 2000 and the buffing, then renaissance wax and rebuffing? Or do i need an even higher grit? I live where i cannot get varathane (or for over 50 dollars with shipping from far away) i hope you can reply because i am in a real pickle 🙂 thank you. I love your videos!

  13. Giorgos P says:

    Hello Cindy, these are extraordinary. I've gotta have it so I just went to your website and bought the tutorial Vol -074. I appreciate your efforts to keep the cost of the tutorials down to $9.95. I'm sure it isn't enough for the hours put into it across the board. Thank you for sharing your gift.

  17. anne amaro says:

    Too bad you have to charge for everything. I was excited till I found that out, so you can keep your patterns to yourself. Other than the suckers who will break down and pay you.

    I've done that method with autumn leaves…Falling Leaves
