>Hex Beaded Time Machine

>

I accomplished a lot of beadwork today! I finished beading the first layer of my DeLorean time machine. I used the metallic hex-cut glass beads I found when I was in the Czech Republic. They are a little sparkly, but I think it will be okay- I’m not finished beading yet…😮

Above, you can see that I’m working in two layers – one layer of felt for the gull-wing door, and the other for the body of the car. I think it will be easier this way since I have to add an interior. Here are the two layers put together:

After bending the body just a bit, my beaded DeLorean is already taking shape! The interior space inside the car measures approx. 1″ deep! I snapped an angled photo with no flash so you can see:

I’d say there’s plenty of room for both a beaded Einstein & flux capacitor now!😀
