Make effortless hollow cross-shaped beads in metal clay with this Bead Builder Cross Mould!
The beads will fit beautifully on PandoraTM style bracelets. Easily add personal touches before firing with a fingerprint, clay shapes, or scribe a name! 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 4.5g - 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.
We recommend using our CoolSlip or olive oil to lubricate the mould before each use.
*Fits PandoraTM bracelets when using clay with a 12% or less shrinkage rate.
