This is really more like a demo than a bonafide tutorial, but it could be helpful to those interested in creating inside-out beads. John Olson is Pati Walton's husband, and an all-around really nice guy and very talented.191007

It's also on YouTube under firelady13.

Because this one has more visuals than instruction, I wasn't sure I should post it here, but then figured, hey, it's free.....if it helps even one person, good enough!

I do wish that YouTube's compression was much less jerky. The original file that's submitted to them is nice and smooth. ....
