Zulu Large 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 zulu bead without texture.
These Plates come in a set of two. They make beads that measure:
- 23mm wide x 35mm point to point x 8mm thick
These plates contain a mandrel groove to accommodate a 1/16th or 5/64th mandrel, if you prefer to use 3/32nd mandrels, you may select to have us modify your tool.
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!
- If using this with word presses you can accommodate up to a 5 letters if you position the word to run along the mandrel groove. If you position the word to run the length of the Zulu it can accommodate a 7 letter word.
