tutorial - Polymer clay beads textured with crepe paper

Starting from top, and clockwise ^-^

1. Condition polymer clay to good soft degree. Roll a basic bead with your hands

2. Wrap the bead in a piece of crepe paper

3. Shape the bead by squeezing it gently with your fingers.

4. Unwrap - here it is, your future flower bud, or a kind of almond, or a dried date fruit

5. Vary your squeezing to arrive to different shapes

6,7 You may use pastels/chalks to add colour gradients to your beads before baking

8. You may as well emphasise the wrinkles with acrylic paint after baking
