Step 1
Secure tagua nut bead in C-clamp. With non-dominant hand, hold clamp in place on flat work surface.
Step 2
Using firm pressure, carve relief patterns in the dyed surface of the nut bead with microcarving tools.

Note: Use caution as micro-carving tools are extremely sharp. Always carve with tool moving away from your hands and body.
