This set will help you get consistent tube beads in two diameters, 6mm and 8mm. Use the top of this 2 piece set to roll a tube of clay on your own work surface. Place the tube on the base, then use the top to roll the tube on the base that has lines inscribed in it. One side of the base has lines 6mm apart and the other side has lines 8mm apart. This allows you to make 6 or 8 mm diameter tube beads that can be either 6mm or 8mm long.
It is easy to shape a length of a marked tube into a teardrop, square, rectangle and other shapes.
These beads can be cut from the tube at the lines after the tube has been cured and while still warm. The clay is soft enough to cut through for the first few minutes out of the oven. It would be much more difficult once the clay cooled; however it could be re-heated if necessary.
The tube bead pictures above represent polymer clay beads rolled from both Tube Bead Roller Set one and Tube Bead Roller Set Two. They are interchangeable. With both sets a number of different sized/shaped tube beads can be rolled.
