The one thing I haven&#39;t been able to make is my own beads as my canes never come out right as the cane gets squashed as I cut them. The tip about freezing them first is excellent and one I will be using for a long time. alisonmarsh89http://www.blogger.com/profile/16708554655962236243noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8088170938843520007.post-17224080183675602342012-03-25T17:12:09.340-06:002012-03-25T17:12:09.340-06:00Great tutorial!

Another thing you can do to prevent flat spots is to fold a sheet of paper like an accordion and place the round beads in the folds.Kelseyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00243383955697110687noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8088170938843520007.post-88639089279239801052011-06-29T19:22:23.071-06:002011-06-29T19:22:23.071-06:00I make a ton of polymer clay stuff, and I&#39;ve f...I make a ton of polymer clay stuff, and I&#39;ve found that, when making beads, a really handy thing to have is a bead baking tray (like <a href="http://www.amazon.com/AMACO-12529A-Bead-Baking-Rack/dp/B001680QH2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1309396712&amp;sr=8-1" rel="nofollow">this one</a> - wait until you have your 40% coupon for Michaels/Hobby Lobby/Joann and get it there). The tray comes with thin metal skewers that you use to poke the holes through the beads, and then you can set the skewers in the slots on each side of the tray, which holds your beads up and prevents flat spots.April / Knightime Creationshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/06941080583003536422noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8088170938843520007.post-67681770898843643672011-06-25T06:13:36.828-06:002011-06-25T06:13:36.828-06:00Love it, keep posting good ideas :)Love it, keep posting good ideas :)lorasrobashttp://lorasrobas.wordpress.com/noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8088170938843520007.post-41665026082681637132011-05-23T12:21:04.019-06:002011-05-23T12:21:04.019-06:00I am on a major polymer clay info search.
