Does anyone buy glass beads here:,Air,RotaryShopEquip-_-50430752:BLAST-IT-ALL&CAWELAID=&kpid=50430752&CAGPSPN=pla&k_clickID=d39822fe-3da8-42ec-a635-633e4f20e672&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI_qC_oMbs2QIV0IKzCh3XNw0FEAQYASABEgLrnPD_BwE

They are so close to me so no shipping and I’m wondering if they wouldn’t work well. I use double knee highs.


This one will be super fine. It says 80 grit

Bountiful baby sells 20-30 (higher the number smaller the bead)

Here is a comparision of 50-70 (from walmart .com) and Bountiful Baby’s 20-30 (on top)



ahhh ok I see Thank you! :slight_smile:

So, which one would you recommend to use? I bought 6# from B.B. and didn’t no you could get it from anywhere else.

I just recently bought some from Ebay at Abrasive armory.

Their #3 mil is the same as Bountiful Baby’s 20-30 and you can order 10 lbs, 15 lbs or 40 lbs… BUT they ship them in a canvas kind of bag (kinda like large rice bags)

So I reused my empty buckets I got when I ordered through Walmart (though it was a smaller bead size… I liked them in the limbs), I had to scoop the beads from the bag into the bucket.


Jenni, I have bought my glass beads from Ab. Armory for quite some time and mine have always come it a “thick plastic bag” packed in a Flat Rate USPS box. I’ve never had them come in a “rice type bag”. Is this something new? It’s been a while since I’ve had to buy any.


I got 40 lbs.recently from Abrasive Armory - they were packaged like Lynn described.

Yep, forgot to mention, mine were 40 lbs too. Maybe the “rice type bags” are for smaller weight orders??

It was plastic bag,inside a thick paper like bag, inside a USPS box

  • that was the 40 pounds of 20-30

I use the very fine inside the limbs, and in head (contained in plastic bag), then I use the large ones. about 2-3 millimeter in the body in stocking.

@jlesser, @lynn, @Luvbaby Mine usually come from abrasive armory as Lynn described but it seems like I got one as Jeni described recently . AA is my favorite place to get glass beads
