Drying Your Paper Beads

On this page you will find links to various ways you can make paper bead drying racks to dry your glazed beads.

Wood Drying Rack

This paper bead drying rack is my favorite one and is the one I am using now. It is mounted under a shelf and the strands of beads hang over a trash can to catch drips. Watch the Video at YouTube

Drying Rack Made with Cooling Rack

This paper bead drying rack is made with a cooling rack from my kitchen. There is no project sheet but there is a video with instructions at YouTube.

PVC and Skewers Paper Bead Drying Rack

This paper bead drying rack is the first one I designed for hanging paper beads. The design was inspired by a cardboard drying rack made by Lisa of Beyond Bracelets.

Carousel Paper Bead Drying Rack

This paper bead drying rack is one that I designed for a more compact footprint. You can take the skewers out and store them inside the tube and put the whole thing on a shelf.

Carousel Paper Bead Drying Rack

This rotating paper bead drying rack is one that I also designed for a more compact footprint. The arms actually are able to fold down onto itself when not in use.

This is how I used to glaze all of my beads before I discovered glazing by dipping them. Here is how I did it.
