Heart Med+ Shape Plates are designed to be used with the Texture Tool Base. You can either place a texture plate on the base, followed one of these plates, then screw together to make textured beads, or you can omit the texture plate and you can simply make a simple tab bead without texture.
These Plates come in a set of two. They make beads that measure:
- 20mm tip to tip x 20.5mm wide x 6mm thick (8mm with Textures)
We have a FAQ page for the Texture/Word Tool System, and we have created a video tutorial that explains the various ways to configure the plates to create textures, words and more with this super versatile tool!
The press works best with 1/16th or 5/64th mandrel. If you work primarily with 3/32nd mandrels you can select that modification, which we will provide at no charge.
If using this shape with the word plate, it will accommodate up to a 4 letter word.
There is a Large Heart Shape Plate that will accommodate up to a 5 letter word.
