I then rolled the beads on bamboo skewers and glued them down with "Tacky Glue"
As soon as they were dry I coated them in glossy Mod Podge. I let those dry over night and then gave them a second coat and this is how they looked
I had to leave it then for a day as I had to "other stuff" but I managed to finish it Saturday. This is the finished piece and I am very, very happy with it. I am almost sorry to let it go but you can find it here in my shop.
( this is an edit because this morning I realised I had not added a photograph of the finished piece. Silly me! Anyhow I hope you like it)
