Large Cylinder Bead Caps in Metal Clay by Valerie Bealle

  

Valerie Bealle, Metal Clay Artist and Instructor from Long Island, New York visited the Cool Tools studio to demonstrate how to create cylinder bead caps and end caps using PMC Flex. Watch the video below as Valerie uses the natural shrinkage rate of metal clay to her advantage as she properly sizes bead caps to fit a string of beads perfectly.

Valerie finishes this project by gold plating the fired silver bead caps to add detail. She uses the Wizard 24L Gold Pen Plater.

Note: PMC Flex is no longer available. For another fine silver flexible clay, check out FS999 Fine Silver Clay. 

The tools and supplies used in this video are listed below.
