You can use contact paper. Walmart sells it. Just use paper punchers to make cut outs

I did not like contact paper because it was not flexible enough to make good contact with all of the surfaces on my round beads. I bought (I think) 18 mil rubber resist from glastar. I wanted to do some sandblasting with stone so I opted for a heavy duty product. I will send you a bit in a letter sized envelope for you to try if you'd like. It can be a somewhat pricey investment. The only down side is that it is relatively thick and it can be hard to cut out intricate designs.

You can get material from a sign shop.

If you are using a cutter than definitely try the sign vinyl in two or three mil thickness. For stock and repeatable designs, try stickers with a metallic surface. Jeri
