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?
SerenaAzureth Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2010
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. ^.^

Ohh okay. I always wondered about that. Maybe I'll pick some up sometime :)

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?
