Presented by Christi Friesen, Award-Winning Artist, Author and Educator,
Instructions by Rachel, Content Development Group, Exclusively for Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®

Place conditioned clay into the provided measuring ring to ensure the proper amount of clay is used in the Tri-Bead Roller.

Tip: If the incorrect amount of clay is used, beads may be poorly formed.
Roll clay into a ball and place into desired shape on the base of the roller.
Place the alignment bar on the base of the roller into the small channel on the top of the roller.
Holding the base portion of the roller stationary, slide the top portion approximately 1 - 2 inches back and forth until the clay forms the desired shape.

Note: Too rapid or long strokes may cause the shape not to form properly.

Use caution when removing to avoid finger prints and distorting the shape of the clay.
