Radiating Lines Tutorial (PDF format)
Nothing brings emphasis to a focal point like radiating lines. And this pleasing visual element is hard to find in commercial texture sheets! So I made my own, using simple readily available tools. I use them extensively for my Focal Art Beads. Learn how to make 10 of my favourite radiating textures as well as many variations on those designs. This image to the left showcases many of the textures covered. As well, this tutorial shows you how to put your textures to use to make a round focal bead dressed up with mica powders (example project shown in image to the left in the lower right). This tutorial (20 pages, 110 images) is designed for those with beginner/intermediate skill levels working with polymer.
