Quick Fix – Paper Bead Glued

This is a quick fix to a paper bead after it has been glued.  The situation:  After a couple of days of adding mod podge, varnish, etc, I notice the following bead had a rough spot along the edge.  It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does there is an easy way to fix it.  Take the gentle side of an emery board and file the spot down.  In my case, the spot along the edge could only be done in one direction.  If I moved the emery board back and forth it would only make the spot worse.  One way filing!

Now the bead is smooth as glass.  There are enough sealants on this bead, that it doesn’t look like it needs anything else done to it, but I am going to add one more coat of varnish just to be on the safe side.

I want to encourage everyone, no matter what your art form.  Don’t be afraid to correct a problem.  Use your best guess on what would properly fix it and try.  Take it slow and go for it!
