Hey all! I've just got a tub of 15,000 hama beads. Ive been playing around with them lately and here are my first 5 creations. The pokeball and sonic are a little too melted, I had to redo mario so he didnt look like them!



Next I think I'll do a goomba, none of these took me very long, but I think they've turned out okay for my first attempts

Well I want to do something bigger but unfortunately I only have two pegboards, one of which got melted a bit so now I have 1 and 1/2. And they don't go together very well because of the melted section. When I order beads i'll have to order more boards too! 9 should be good right? A 3 X 3 square.

Here are some tips to help you prevent destroying your pegboards.
First tip: Use the tape-technique. It will sure leave your pegboards exactly the same.
The other tip is more obvious; don't iron so hard. Just make sure that the beads stick together. Then you should be able to flip them over and remove the pegboard, and iron them some more if needed, but without ruining the board Very Happy

After you've finished beading, you put maskingtape all over it. Make sure that it's tight enough. Then you should be able to flip it over and remove the pegboards, and then iron it from that side first.

Here is a good guide: http://parlplattor.blogspot.com/2008_05_01_archive.html
Unfortunately it's in Swedish, but Google translate can help you Smile

Thanks for the tip. Google translate really didn't help much though, it said

Quote:
Take again a flat, hard, in the appropriate size (I used the hand because the subject was so small) and Kasa of the subject (still on spike plates and with a book in this case)
Then, turn on the entire roast so sprightly flat hollows underside ports up.

Google isn't the best translater unforunately. But that quote tells you to use something flat and press a little, to make sure that the tape really sticks to the beads.
