Tips & Tricks for preserving the life of your seed beads.
If you are concerned about the longevity of your seed bead colours, there are few extra measures you can do to extend the life of these little glass beads.
Unless you choose a transparent colour, seed beads are made up of a colour coating on top of a neutral glass bead.
Duracoated beads are a higher cost value, as they come with a protective acrylic layer already applied, but all other seed beads; regardless of glass quality are prone to fading over time.
Good News! Preparing your seed beads before use will add a barrier between the coating and the wearer. Here’s how…
You will need:
· Grip seal/ zip lock plastic bag
· Clear acrylic spray paint
· Plastic sheet for drying
Pour your seed beads into the bag.
Spray the clear acrylic paint into the bag,
Give the bag a good shake to ensure all the little beads are coated in the acrylic paint.
Pour beads onto a plastic sheet and spread out so none of the beads are touching.
Leave to dry. Done!
