I have some more questions to throw at you guys, because I've gotten a lot of awesome feedback.

1) I bought some magnetic strips and some 2mm foam the other day to use for making sprite magnets and coasters, in case people wanted to buy them, or I wanted to make them for myself. The magnets have adhesive on the back, so I can just stick them on. For the foam though, does anyone have any recommended types of glue or adhesive? I used super glue, and it seems to hold just fine, without eating through anything.

2) I have a few friends that have expressed interest in potentially buying some sprites from me. I won't be able to meet them in person. Does anyone have any recommended advice for shipping them out? What kinds of packing materials/envelopes, etc? Also, would I need to head to the post office to mail them out?

Any advice or feedback is greatly appreciated.

I personally use the Magnet tape from Office Depot, its about 8 dollars for a decent sized roll.

I have another question, but I'm not going to spam the forum with more posts..I'll just put it here.

My beads are coming out with a shiny finish on them...this isn't what I want. I'm assuming I'm burning the beads or something..

I'm going for a flat-iron technique (Thanks Serena!), and I can get the front side looking just fine. However, the back side always gets this shiny finish, and it's kind of annoying. Here are my ideas about what I'm doing wrong:

1) Something with the transfer paper. Do I need to flip it over after I iron each side?

2) I'm impatient, and I'm not letting the sprite cool completely. Do I need to let the sprites cool for 10, 20 minutes before I iron the other side?

3) My iron is too hot. I don't think this is it, because the front side irons just fine.

Any feedback is appreciated!
