Fabric and Paper Beads

These are beads that I made for a swap on Art Techniques.

For the fabric ones, I painted the red silk type fabric with a little bit of copper paint and then wrapped with copper foil. The blue ones were wrapped with "Razzle Dazzle" thick decorative thread.

The paper beads were cut into long triangles and wrapped. The blue ones started off as a peach floral scrapbooking paper, and I paintedthem by rubbing dimensional paint on them.

The red ones were newspaper that I painted with red acrylic and then wrapped with copper wire.
