Questions and answers
How do you do
your pictures with lying Nabbi-beads?
They are so nice.
your colors for your Santa Claus?
There are people with
patience. Not I, no-no. On the Web you can see movies where pärlplatteläggare (bead layer)
puts a bead at a time, get a new bead, put it down, take ONE new bead, etc.. Do you
not use your fingers, I have even read that you can use pliers :-( What is next?
Using boxing gloves? I want it to go quickly, so I pick up 8-10 beads on a
toothpick, let them down on the pegboard and get more. If you have the patience to
take ONE and put down ONE bead at a time, then you can put them lying, so I made a
small picture with a Santa Claus to shw how you can place the beads without seeing the holes. Put glue - suitable for tree or plastic
- on a cardboard disc and add two
lines of pearls at a time.
The dark blue background, is PP17 (blue) and NABBI dark blue.
The picture with two portraits, how did you do it?
Yes, like this: I scanned in the photos and tried to do something new in
scrapbooking style. It is a little picture just 30 cm high and 40 cm wide.
I used the PhotoPearl program to generate patterns for faces, then I put them and
left emty rows around them. I made the background in one color and made a girland with leaves and some hearts.
When I had put on the adhesive sheets on the back and attach the
picture on a cardboard, I put gold and silver beads around the portraits, with lying gold beads
around the left photo and lying silver beads around the right one.
Technology: Adding Nabbi-beads after-generated designs and my own invention.
Glue with adhesive sheets and mount in the frame. 4800 Nabbi-beads were used. Dimensions:
60 beads high and 80 beads wide.
How did you do it to make the image of
bananas from 1945?
The card was in black and white, which most at that time.
I colored the banana in my image program, then generated a pattern with the PhotoPearl
program, placed the beads according to the pattern, but made the background in color. Used
technology: Scan photo, image processing, generate patterns with PhotoPearls,
add beads after the pattern but with some changes.
