How do you seal wooden beads?
Finish your beads with 2 light coats of acrylic sealer. I prefer a matte-finish sealer. Allow the first coat of sealer to dry about 30 minutes to an hour before applying the second coat. Be sure to spray the beads outdoors and avoid breathing the fumes.
Can you wash wooden beads?
You can hand wash your Madre Beads in mild dish soap with warm water and let it air dry. You can also wipe them down with baby wipes when on the go! We recommend you do not soak or leave wood beads underwater; this may dry them out.
How do you dry wooden beads?
If you are going to dry them with a hair dryer (put hair dryer on low setting and guard them with your hand or they will go flying) you can set them on a paper towel. If you are going to let them dry on their own, try using something like wax paper so they don’t stick.
