Melted Plastic Beads Make Fashion Flashback

Adafruit 257

Melted Plastic Beads Make Fashion Flashback @ Wired Design.

As DIY crafts go, perler beads are about as simple as they come — lay them out, sit an iron on top for a few seconds, and they’ll stick together. (We won’t say ‘easy’ because even perler beads are easy to screw up.) While our creativity was limited to ironing 2-D representations of our favorite cartoon characters, designer Sabine Ducasse’s Melting Pot collectionwraps a wearable, iron-melted sheet of the little dots around a person. Ducasse’s retro style pops off her model, bending around the shoulders like a set of pixelated wings.

One day those will be LEDs 🙂
