Playing with inks and foils

Testing out some alcohol inks on foils and silver leaf.
The sheet pattern looks good, still not dry but I'm wondering how I can get this onto to a round shaped bead?.
The blue bead was a test to see if I could achieve the same effect as the sheet, but the blue kind of flowed sliver the bead, still looks good and will try to add some other effects once it's dry maybe some stamps. Both these were done using a foil.
The purple bead is not going so well, I've used silver leaf on this and of course it cracks very easy and not really liking how the colour flows on this one.
I like the bubble effect on the sheet so gonna keep trying to get it onto a lentil bead.
