Each of the spiral canes were then sliced and divided out so that there were 3-4 slices for each bead which I then applied before rolling them into the surface. There is no need for glue as the clays blend together easily.
Each bead was given a hole with a thin knitting needle before baking them in a cool oven for 30 minutes. Baking the polymer clay turns it into a hard and durable material, remember to bake in a well ventilated room and not to use ovenware that will be used for cooking food. I use disposable tin trays, lined with baking parchment.
When the beads cooled, I strung them on a length of black elastic.
