I see the topic of tube come up and there's a couple of ways I go about making tube beads.
As a follow up to this post to CITY-o-Clay I created a new tutorial on how to make one of the simplest tube beads I know how to do.
This next picture shows the finished beads but how they were made was I took slices of the stacked sheets, pressed them to a sheet of clay. Cut out a rectangle and wrapped it around a bamboo bbq skewer. They were cured, wet sanded, and finished on that skewer until I wanted to take them off. To take off the tube beads off of the skewer I reheated them for 5-10 minutes, then twist and pull.
