i ordered a first impressions mold to make a bead border, but i'm wondering... if i want my border to be in a, say, blue-green-white repeating pattern, what's the best way to make the beads?

would you do one long string of blue, one long of green, and one long of white, and then cut the beads out? or is it better to push the colors into the molds individually?

this might be confusing, but really what i'm asking is - what's the best technique to get beads of the same size, but different colors?

Personally, I would do one string of each. Seems like it would be the only sure fire way to get the colors right and not mixed together

I agree with cakegroove. Make single colored strands and cut them apart. Filling each individual cavity would be wildly tedious and time consuming. I can't even imagine.
