This is just for fun bead rolling. Mitler Bro's makes a set of artist dies. They are real narrow so you can make tight turns.

A friend of mine lives in Oregan so I made him a Oregon Duck for his den.

My poor brother-in-law is a Kansas City Chief's fan(God help him) so I made him a KC arrowhead.

I put sign painters tape on the metal and then draw out my design with a pencil. Once I like it I go over it with a sharpie to make the lines show up better. I then use one of those surplus hospital adjustable tables and lay the piece on it and set down on a tall bar stool. I use one of those magnet base lights to light up my work area and then start following the lines, kind of like sewing.
