Ironing instruction

You will need:

  • An iron
  • Ironing paper. We recommend using a reusable teflon baking mat.
  • A flat, heavy object (a book, for example).
  • An oven mitt (optional).
  • Your beaded art.

Choose which finish you’d like out of the options below:


A. Ironed on one side – large holes.

B. Ironed lightly on both sides – small holes.

C. Heavily ironed – no holes.


1. Place the beaded art on a heat safe surface. Place the baking mat over the beads


2. Set the iron on medium heat (two dots). Iron the beads lightly until they stick together.


3. Carefully remove the beaded art from the pegboard. We suggest you use an oven mitt when touching the pegboard – it gets warm!


4. Continue ironing the beads on the same side as before, so that they stick together nicely.


A5. Place a flat, heavy object on top of the beads and leave to cool.

B5. Flip the beads over. Place the baking mat over them and iron until the holes in the beads have shrunk to the desired size.

C5. Flip the beads over. Place the baking mat over them and iron until the holes in the beads have disappeared.

Done! 😀


B6. Place a flat, heavy object on top of the beads and leave to cool.

C6. Place a flat, heavy object on top of the beads and leave to cool.

Done! 😀

TIP!

If you’re planning on gluing your beaded art to something, for example if you want to frame it, you can use newspaper for ironing paper on one side. This way, it’s easy to use a glue stick on the beaded art.

1. Iron the designated front of the beaded art as usual, using a baking mat. Once they stick together, remove the beads from the pegboard and flip them over.

2. Put the newspaper over what will be the back of the beaded art.

3. Iron until you see little rings forming through the newspaper – see the picture above.

4. Let the beads cool under a flat, heavy object. Leave the newspaper on the beads until they have cooled.

5. Pick the newspaper away around the edges of the beads.

6.Voilà! You can now use a glue stick on the newspaper-clad side in order to glue the beads to a larger artwork. Which form this will take is up to you!

Please note that ink from the newspaper can stick to the iron when you use this method. Let the iron cool before cleaning it.
