Bead from a Bi Cone Bead

Creation posted b… | Beaded animals, Seed bead  crafts, Beaded craftsHaving like size beads is good, so begin by measuring clay for beads. Using a tube bead roller top, roll some lengths of clay. Pick a color that will end up being a center color in your swirled bead.
Using a measuring guide, ruler with raised increments, or other clay marking tool, impress lines in the tube of clay. Now you have reference points to cut specific amounts of clay to keep beads at a consistent size.
Hand roll the measured amounts of clay.
Roll two tubes of contrasting color, lay them side by side. At this point you can roll over them a bit with an acrylic rod, to get them to stick together.

Run the tubes of clay through the pasta machine. Fold in half lengthwise, and run through the pasta machine, folded edge first. Repeat this until you like the appearance of the blending in the center.
When you like the blending, roll the blend thin. Now you are ready to cut circles out of the blend as shown and apply them to either side of the hand rolled ball.
With the circles of color attached, place the roller top over the clay as shown, with the base clay color in the center.
Begin making a circular motion with the roller top. Continue rolling until the colors swirl in an appealing pattern. Keep the circular motions going in the same direction. The tilt of the roller top, the pressure applied and the circumference of the circular motion all can have an effect on the bead, so if you haven’t done this have some fun getting the feel and practicing. Well worth your time, guaranteed to please!
Once you’ve gotten the swirl you like, you can use the roller top to apply pressure to change the shape of your bead. The two center beads in this picture were made rectangular in shap, simply by putting pressure on one sice with the roller top. Fun!!!!

How to Make a Lentil Bead from a Bicone Bead

Desiree's HowTo make Lentil Swirled BeadsShape a Bi-Cone bead. In this sample the bead was formed using the Bi-cone bead roller, the largest size. To swirl color, place some contrasting color over the bead from point to point. Set it in the base of the bead roller and travel it to the far end. Pick the bead up and without turning it place it back in the base (at the end) and re-roll it in the same direction. Repeat this until you like the design on the bead.
Set the bead point down on your work surface. Place a flat sheet of Plexiglas or a tube bead roller top over the bead. A Tube bead roller top would work nicely for this. Herinafter the reference will be “tool”.
Rotate the tool ovwer the bead in a circular motion. Imagine the point of the bead against the work surface as an axis, that will stay turning in the same spot. The things that will affect the shape the bead takes on are downward pressure, tilt of the tool, and how wid the circular motion. If you’ve never done this, practice a bit. It is a “feel” thing, but like riding a bike. Once you have it, it will stay with you.
Pierce through your lentil shape. If the tool is placed over the bead towards one edge, the bead can be pierced from the side while under the tool to prevent finger prints.

How to make a Teardrop or Cone Shaped Bead

Begin by determining the amount of clay to use for the size bead you wish to roll. I use one of our cutters in clay that has been rolled through a pasta machine, and experiment until I have a size I like. Then I can repeat the size quickly and easily.
Hand roll the measured clay into a ball. The ball shape will become cone shaped once it is rolled. If you desire more of a teardrop shape, with a more rounded end, begin with an oval shape.
Place the roller top over the clay ball. There are two posts that elevate the roller top, and those posts should be on the edge furthest from you.
Move the roller back and forth over the clay. Continue rolling until its size and shape are pleasing to you. Over-rolling will cause it to tear apart at the lower end.
When it is the size and shape you like, you can make a mark on the roller, a line that marks the base of the bead. That will allow you to duplicate that shape, using the same amount of clay. You can use a water based marker. If a permanent marker is used, it will take 91% rubbing alcohol to remove the mark.
To make the teal circles on this bead, I measured clay with a 5mm line marker included with this set and cut on the lines. I divided each square in 1/2 (cutting diagonally). Then the small amounts of measured clay were hand rolled into a ball and placed on the brown bead.

After placing the little balls on the exposed parts of the bead, place the roller top back over the bead, at the mark. Roll the dots into circles using short strokes. If you make long strokes, the dots will become streaks – which is also very fun to do and watch! Experiment, have fun!!
Formed beads can be pierced through the side, or from bottom to top. There are many ways to embellish. Try a couple vertical lines of contrasting colored clay on a solid bead, and travel the bead in one direction. The stri

Using a clay blade, shave excess clay from the chamber of the roller. Cut nearly parallell with the roller top, leaving the surface of the clay flat and smooth. It is safer to hold the roller as illustrated and cut downwards away from yourself.

Press a measuring guide or ruler with raised 1/16″ increments into the clay to leave the marks impressed in the clay.
Remove the marked clay from the roller and place on your work surface.
Cut length recommended in the instructions for the roller you are working with.
This sample is pro set 2 and the pieces are 3/4 inches long.
Hand form each piece into a ball. Avoid trapping air in balls, and copress tightly. Roll to eliminate any fold lines.
Place one of the balls of clay in the center of the roller base. Put the roller top over the base. Hold the base stationery and move the top back and forth over the clay to shape the bead.

Move the bead to either end at the pin path, 1 inch from either end. The bead can be moved with the roller top to avoid fingerprints. When the bead is in the pin path, place the roller top over the base.
Line up the vertical lines on the base and top to get alingment of the roller. Enter the pin through either side. It might be best to start from the side farthest from the bead. Reinsert from other side if it doesn’t go straight through.
