Do you always iron both sides of your sprites?

I do only one side, but make sure its well fused with little or no gaps if possible.

I find that I tend to like the textured side up rather than the flat side.

I am with you- I like the look of the texture of the unironed side more.

Most of our bead sprites are made by my 10 year old, and he plays with them for hours. We usually end up over-ironing both sides intentionally, so they hold up well for play. He does not want his sprites mounted to anything so thorough ironing is the only way we can make them sturdy enough.

Ironing is always a thing to preference. Some people make their sprites backwards so when they iron only the one side, the front side has the holed look to it. I usually do that with my giant (like about 3ft or more) sprites. All my other sprites I "flat-iron" meaning to iron completely with no holes to give it a "square pixel" look. that involves ironing the crap out of the front side, then the back side, then the front side one more time to close up any remaining holes I have with the tip of my iron. Honestly sprites are fun any way you make them and there is always someone who will appreciate any style they are in. ^.^<3

Most of the time i also go for the one iron side cause i also like the gaps. I saw a few well flat ironed ones and i also liked them, i would love to try one soon, but i'm going for a smaller one for it. The bigger ones are too hard to do it like that. I also need some pratice on iron cause i tend to mess a bit with it. Embarassed Maybe i'll do a few smaller projects now to do some iron practice in both styles.
