A really handy bead builder mould which is very easy to use. I love the shape of this doughnut bead, a fabulous way to create your own metal clay beads which can be decorated in anyway you choose. Highly recommended!
Bead Builder Mould - Donut
Make perfectly shaped donut-shaped beads in metal clay with this effortless Bead Builder Donut Mould!
These bead moulds create 3-dimensional beads by making the bead in two halves. Because the bead is hollow, it uses a minimal amount of clay (approx 3.4g - very dependant upon the amount of paste used, added decorations, or if you manage to squeeze a bit more clay in!).. Start by pressing the clay into the mould, and compress with a vice, clamp, or between your hands for a few seconds. Open up to remove any excess clay, and add any desired texture, then close up again and leave to dry somewhere warm - like an oven, dehydrator, or a cup warmer. Carefully remove from the mould once it’s fully dry by prying each corner open a little. Stick both halves together with Art Clay Silver Paste, and blend the join to make it look seamless. Leave the paste to dry, refine, and fire.
