Last night, I dug through my blue seed beads. I chose about 6 different shades of blue to use for the headlight beams on my 2008 DeLorean Time Machine. Then, I began to do some bead embroidery all around the edge of the beams.
Since the car is actually traveling through time in this stage of my beaded Back to the Future Trilogy, the headlight beams will be electric blue and a very bright white when viewed head on. In reality, the beams of light would appear to come straight out of the car in sort of 3-dimensional way, and this is what I hope to achieve in the long run. I haven’t quite figured out how to do that yet, but I have a few ideas. We’ll see what happens… one beam at a time! 😀
