Step 1: Condition some black clay and run through the pasta machine on the second or third thickest setting. Cut some foiled paper and your clay to roughly the same size.

Step 2: Place your foil paper on top of the black clay – colour side up. Now place some multix-bake paper on top on smooth all down gently.

Step 3: Burnish over the top of the clay with a credit card – just flicking back and forth.

Step 4: Check to see if the foil has adhered to the clay. If it hasn’t continue burnishing with the credit card.

Step 5: Rip the paper from the clay in one swift motion – like ripping a bandaid.

Step 6: Cut out somecircle shapes with a small circle cutter – mine is 1cm diameter.

Step 7: Create 3 black beads the same size and create a thread hole with a skewer. Create a thread hole in the foiled disc also and place these on the bead matching up the thread holes. Press down gently to adhere to the bead.

Step 8: Note the red foil bead cap was textured after the circle was cut out. This creates a whole different effect.

    Love the look of the red one. I didn’t know you could have foil in red, and no idea where to get it from. What did you use to texture it?

      Hi Fran

      The red foil is from the Lisa Pavelka range. Texturing is done with a texture sponge or you can use very coarse sandpaper. We have both the foils and the sponges on our website.

      Kind regards
