I love cornstarch!!!!




okay guys (?) and gals...here's the deal. You can use cornstarch to smooth your beads before curing. I just barely dip a finger in it and then gently smooth each bead all over (after I've put holes in). You can use a medium touch and not worry about distorting the swirl pattern. Then after curing, they go in the icewater bath for a while, and then....I only hand sand with 1000 grit and I get a lovely finish. The very best part of this is that I've been skipping the glazing step and I'm so much happier with the feel of them. There are more pictures in my flickr photo album. Try it, you'll like it!! *g*

I've heard about using cornstarch to smooth the surface but I have no idea how. Thank you for the advice, I've tried it and it is really fantastic for lazy bones on a boring job like sanding, hehe.

Hi Barb,
I tried the cornstarch last night and it's great! It's amazing how good they feel when you're smoothing and they turned out beautifully!!!! I also re-read your tute for the swirly lentils and did mine....of course, I need lots more practice but I'm really pleased with them. Thank you for being so generous with your knowledge!
