Cool Hand Painted Art Beads

Art Beads

A selection of the most recent *OOAK Art Beads that I have painted with India ink and acrylic. They are each varnished three times for durability. The small blue one in the foreground measures 5/8″ or 15mm.

This post from earlier this month featured a close up of one of these beads.

*OOAK – one of a kind

I set up on my deck this weekend to begin painting beads and balls. I have been collecting unpainted wooden beads for a over a decade now. It is time to turn them into painted necklaces. The other project I began in late 2005 was paper machéing balls. They are ready for decoration also.
