If you ask, you may just get exactly what you want… Flower petal inclusion video, a full tutorial:
The following dialog is is from an email conversation I recently had with a subscriber about how to make beads from flower petals.
CYNTHIA (aka cynister):I signed up for your Guest List & began looking through your site. I wanted to watch the video on flower petal beads but I can’t seem to find where I do that in its full version. I can only see the preview. Where do I find that?
CINDY (aka polymer clay tutor): Thanks for your interest in my bead videos. Many of the polymer clay tutorials I produce are designed to go into courses that are available for purchase. However, that flower petal video will likely be released at some point down the road in my free video newsletter. Sorry I don’t know exactly when it will be released, so stay tuned…
CYNTHIA: Thanks for the quick response. I enjoy watching your videos & look forward to there being more topics available. I really hope the flower bead video is released soon as I am very interested in that in particular. Thank you!
Well cynister, this week’s free newsletter video will be all about mixing dried flower pieces with translucent polymer clay to make a rose petal bead or any other type of flower bead you choose. They can be used as memorial beads, prayer beads, rosary beads, or for unique jewelry to celebrate a special occasion.
If you use Fimo Classic Translucent clay, your beads will have a whitish color to them whereas Premo gives the beads a yellowish glow. Some petals and pot pourri contain dyes in them and these can sometimes bleed into the clay for an interesting effect.
So if you have ever wanted to make some special beads as a memento to a special event, the upcoming video is worth seeing. Here’s a link to page where you can get subscribed: Polymer Clay Tutorials Guest List
And here’s a link to a sneak peak clip taken from the full video that will be sent out in a few days: Beads From Flower Petals
Oh and feel free to tell your friends about subscribing to my video newsletter as well. I’ve already been receiving emails from non-subscribers asking how to get access to the bead making videos released in previous weeks. Sorry, but you have to be on the guest list to receive them. I promise to make it worth your while :)
