Prague’s Pavla Cepelikova gathered samples of her polymer mosaic lentil beads into one long strand of color and pattern. She sells a tutorial that shows simple step-by-step instructions.
This technique was first taught by Amelia Helm in the 90’s. I took Amelia’s class back then and am happy to have updated lessons based on today’s polymer formulations, inks and materials. Pavla’s been refining her methods for quite some time (PCD featured her early mosaics a year ago). Follow along with her work on Facebook and on Flickr as well.

Wow! The details in those are amazing! I bet they take forever to do!

I adore Pavla’s work–her innovative batik method had me scratching my head too! Her sense of color and design makes her a force to be reckoned with. Can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
