Beaded Plastic Container...Finished
The plastic hair colour container is beaded and finished..
Well it does work, but I must admit, I do like the beaded teaballs better.. They seem to have a better shape..
The inside in not as wide as the teaball, so it was a little bit more awkward to bead.
The best thing I found to use is a long big eye beading needle, it's long, flexible and easier to get right up into the awkward parts.. Where as a normal needle would not bend as easily.
I think I may need to put a few more beads around the top, though painting it gold hides the white coloured plastic..so maybe I'll just leave this one as is...
Just one more tip.
Make sure you have enough beads, it's hard to judge how much you will need, but it's better than running out as I have... would you believe, I needed just another eight beads.
I bought two packets of the oil slick beads from Spotlight, weighing 15 grams each pack, so I will need to get another packet to finish it off...
