Large low weight beads and hollow beads
In the autumn of 2009 FIMO was hard to get because they changed the name and package of FIMO clay. That made me think about how I could still make large beads with less clay. What can I put inside my bead that can be baked, even take away after baking, how strong is a hollow bead? Can I put something in my beads as a surprise? And yes... I tried the wax-method but that didn't work out with me. A lot of brainteasing days later I figured out 2 ways to do it; published it in the Netherlands in December 2009 and now ready to publish it here. In this tutorial you learn 2 ways to make hollow beads and show you 2 designs. One with flower canes and one with silver-gray stripes you can make with a ripple blade. The blue hollow bead with holes and the cheese joke with the mouse inside are made with the other technique. I'll show you all step by step. As a bonus I also teach you how to make the lava spacer beads. So actually 5 tutorials in 1. Have a lot of fun!
