So, I haven't been bead spriting that long..but I'm definitely hooked on it..and I was tired of doing little tiny sprites..so I kind of went from making 1 up mushrooms to making a giant huge mega metroid sprite. I'm talking about the one that Doc Octoroc did of Samus' ship. The thing is massive.

Anyway, I only have 5 pegboards to work with, so I'm kinda doing a "make a chunk of it, iron it, then make another chunk, and seam them together" kinda style..

Therein lies the problem. I just finished the first 5 pegboards, and they look great..until I ironed them. I'm getting lots of beads that aren't fusing, are falling off, or have some kind of strange, ugly shiny finish. I'm assuming I'm burning my beads or something..

Is there any kind of advice or tips anyone has for either ironing huge sprites (I already have the tutorial, I'm lookin' at it now), or repairing burnt sprites? I'm kinda OCD about this whole thing, and since it's such a large project, I'd like it to turn out looking decent.

Also, any tips on how to actually move such huge sprites?

I have this problem too when working with large projects. I've found the best way to go is to finish 4 boards and iron them together along the common lines. This reduces the amount of breakage. As for beads falling off, you just have to iron carefully.
