To make the base bead, I use Black Fimo clay, half classic and half soft because the soft is too soft. I roll the clay into the sheet with the pasta machine. With a small, round cookie cutter, I cut out the pieces. This way I will be able to make the same size beads. First, roll it into round shape and flatten it with your fingers. You can stamp the clay, make it into cube or any shape you want. Then poke a hole through it because you do not want to touch these beads as much once the Matellic powder was put on.
