This technique is a bit of a challenge but I love the results. I first lay an opaque series of dots around the plain body of the bead and melt it in. I then layer a transparent layer of dots on the first layer and melt it in. I repeat, spin and layer with proper placement and it creates this fish scale look. It calls for a steady hand a bit of patience, which is a good practice in any regard. I love the dimension, use of color and the challenge. Happy Monday to all!
