1) Lightly sand and seal your wood beads, let dry.

2) Paint with three coats white paint, let dry between coats.

3) While paint is drying pick out your images. Apply two heavy coats of Tranx Maxx to front of image, let dry between coats.

4) Cut out your images cutting as close to the image as possible.

5) Apply water to back of image (not the side you applied the Tranx Maxx), let sit for 5 minutes, apply more water, let sit for a couple of minutes. Carefully remove paper from Tranx Maxx side of image. You now have your image encased in Tranx Maxx. No paper! Your image may appear milky, because it is still wet, but will dry crystal clear.

6) Wet your image slightly, apply Tranx Maxx to back of image and "glue" onto bead, your image is very flexible, smooth onto surface. Let dry.

7) Apply two coats of triple thick varnish to your bead, drying between coats.

8) Find large metal endcaps that will fit your beads and glue on with Tranx Maxx.

9) String your beads and attach clasp.

                                                        Your beads will look hand painted!!
