What are fuse beads and how to use?


Fuse beads, also known as Perler beads, Hama beads or Artkal beads, are small plastic beads that can be arranged and fused together with heat to create designs. They come in a variety of colors and are often used in art and craft projects to make patterns, pictures or even 3D objects. To create a design with fuse beads, the beads are arranged on a pegboard, and then heated with an iron to melt and fuse together. The end result is a colorful and vibrant creation that can be used as a decoration, toys or a piece of jewelry.
