Step-Out Photograph Tutorial PDF

Creating striped veneers and tubes has been such a passion of mine for a long time.  I find the veneers incredibly versatile and the tubes can be as complex or as simple as you like.

It’s finally time to share some of my tips and tricks to create these gorgeous art beads.

It’s important to note at the beginning I highly recommend using an industrial type heat gun to cure the Kato Liquid Clay. In saying that, you could simply create tubes with striped veneers without the decorative clay element and without the super shiny surface.
