You should never let me near small multi-colour plastic products.
You arrange the beads on a peg board and then you iron them on wool setting, which softens the plastic and melds them together.
The leg less patchwork elephant in the middle was the first test piece. Ironed so well that the holes have all vanished.
The regularity of the pegs suggested regular forms – I’m not sure where the labyrinths came from but they seemed like a good idea. The big one on the left is disappointing difficult to read; but as first steps it’s okay. It was difficult to read on the board but I put that down to the pegs and shadows. The plastic obviously gets hot when you’re ironing it and it’s ma liable – I’m wondering if it can be bent into other shapes then flat…
Oh plans in my head
the stars are for a solstice present. I am going to make six stars. So that’s why I’m sorting though the pile of beads.
i haven’t abandoned the loom bands. I’ll post more pictures as I finish projects and work out what to do with all my eye watering neon pink bands.
