The top row are the beads that were covered with FIMO Metallic Powder and the bottom row are the beads that were covered with PERFECT PEARLS from Ranger. These beads can now be baked as usual. Do not burn them or bake them too hot. Bake them outside if you can. The Varnish must be put on after that because the powder stick to the surface of the bead only. It will rub off. I usually do 2 coats.

Wow! I was so excited to see your lessons, I had just bought some clay and really had no clue how to use it to make beads. I was afraid to try, I didn't want to waste it. Now I feel as if I am ready. Thanks so much. Looking forward to any new lessons you have. So easy to understand!

Absolutely Perfect!!! I've looked all over the web and these are easily the BEST directions. I got so excited, I tried it right away...with a twist. I didn't have any of the powders handy BUT I did have some wild color metalic make-up powders that were all the rage in the glam rock erra. {Yes, from the 70's but I've been using them in craft projects ever since.} Guess what? They work perfectly. Thanks for the inspiration! You've found another fan for your club......Onceapona

thanks -- i bet these are even prettier in person than in the photo. it is really hard to get the raku effect right, but you've done it. Your tutorials are much appreciated. You should do some YouTube videos!!
