Faux Ebony Carved Beads
I have been experimenting with a variety of colors for these beads, using a similar style so I can see what works and what doesn't. I like the ebony the best so far. I used pearl white pearl ex and I like it better than the silver actually. It really pops on the black.
I am still trying to get the faux jade to work as well. The colors are still dull compared to the more opaque colored beads.
I think it must have something to do with the transparency of the jade colors. I have been sanding my brains out but they are still dull as you can see below:
