Next, set the bits of rope into position... These beads are painted in white and various shades of blue (the same shade of blue as that used for painting with the stencil) and placed upon skewers to dry. Next, thread on the beads onto the mini bits of rope to represent buoys. These bits of rope are fixed to the mirror with the glue lines which are very easy to use and are strong enough to take the weight of the beads. make a 'snail' shape out of the glue lines, then attach the bits of rope for a rolled-up rope look. Hang a few beads from the rope, using a 5 mm strip of glue line.
