This is a step by step tutorial on how to make light weight realistic Predator dreadlock beads made of PVC pipe and pieces of yoga mat
It looks realy good
You can do any design depending on what tools are at your disposal
But as long as you have a saw/dremel, hot glue gun and scisors you are fine.
Here is your end result

I am posting day by day I don't know why
Next you mark a design with every one line you make the design for 2 beads
Once you have the PVC pipe marked you can cut them out with a saw or dremel

Now you can start cutting the foam/yoga mat to go on the beads for the ridges and stuff you can also use hot glue along the edge of the beads like I did on some of my beads, but you can do it how ever you want.

After you have that done you can glue them on to the beads
now is the hardest part: deciding were they will go on the dread locks

Gone but not forgotten.
Um, tutorials usually include pictures to show what you are doing and talking about. Any pictures?
