Default Stop bead static

In the past when I've made beaded pens, I've had a problem with those little beads flying all over the place from the static that you get when using the plastic trays.

I finally found a solution!!! I used the bottom of a wooden box (about 1" deep). I had absolutely no problems with flying beads. And they even went quietly and orderly when it came time to pour the remainder back into the container. I would imagine that a cardboard box might even work.

Yep, wood, paper, glass, all are better at controlling static than plastic...

I threw some of those thing that come with new shoes( you know, the DO NOT EAT ONES)into my box, & they cut the static considerably.

I rub the Embossing Buddy in the container I'm going to use, tap out any extra powder, and NO static!

Does anyone have a trick for keeping those crazy beads from sticking to my foam tape when I'm trying to make a shaker card?

TIA, Dana

Try putting strips of wax paper over the foam tape until you are ready to afix it to the other half (the foam tape does not stick to the wax paper). And - just thinking out loud - I wonder if you put the beads in a shallow container and lightly patted them with the embossing buddy before putting them into the shaker card - if that might get rid of the static.

I've also used the top of check boxes....you can open one end (lift flap out) squeezed it a little to form a funnel and pour back microbeads into container. Beads didn't stick.

I always wipe the bottom of the tray with a swiffer wipe. It also helps when cleaning up too.
