Sonic 1 Logo GameGear by SerenaAzureth Sonic 1 Logo GameGear by SerenaAzureth
Finally, finally, finally, FINALLY done with this piece. I've been trying to finish up this commission for almost 2 weeks and have run into a million problems with it. First off, this is the Sonic 1 Logo from the GameGear Version so it's not as big as the giant Genesis version one I did and I figured "Hey, this one will be a breeze!", apparently not. This is the biggest piece I have ever "flat-ironed" and thus my first attempt at it burnt and warped it horribly. There was no way I would ever send a product to a customer in that condition so I was forced to wait on another order of beads so I could make a second one. After clearing my head and taking a different approach to flat ironing this sucker I finally got it done and done right so I am thrilled!! I even mounted him on a layer of foamcore to add extra stability so there is no way this bad boy will bend. Thank God. LOL. Anyway, I do feel bad that I still have the original warped and bent one sitting on the floor of my living room taking up space. I would feel bad just throwing it away but I don't know if I would feel right selling it at a high discount to anyone just because it is not up to par with the rest of my work. :( Oh well, I will think about it for a bit and I'll take a picture of this good one next to the burnt one so you can all see what I'm talking about. Stupid melty beads, how I love and loath you....<3

Oh wow! That looks incredible! The "ribbony" bit actually does look 3D as well. I think you must have a lot of patience and determination to do these. They'd look great on ya wall though.

That's so cool. Where do you get a big peg board for this sort of thing?

I get the 29X29 linkable pegboards from Michael's that come in 2 packs. They all fit together like puzzle pieces so that's how you work on giant pieces. ^.^

Can I just ask a quick question about this....: Where do you put these GIANT beadsprites once they're done being ironed and cooled down?

LOL, well, most of the time they have a customer waiting for them when they are done so I don't have to store them long and they get shipped off, but if I am holding onto something for a bit I usually tack it up on my own walls until I have a purpose for it.I use to keep things in piles on the corners of my floors, but too many accidents happen that way so on the walls they go!

How do you ship something so big? Won't it break?

I hate ironing big pieces. That's mostly why I stopped making anything over 3x3 :D

I'm interested to see if the first one is as bad as you are implying though.

Thanks. ^.^ I'm glad this second one turned out fine, because if this one warped as well and I had to start over and make a third one,........I'd probably go crazy. x.x

It's made of little fuseable beads that you arrange on a pegboard and then iron. :)
