Product Feature - NEW Macramé and Seed Bead Wood Panels

by Ainsley Holland September 01, 2022


Introducing our new Wood Panels designed specifically for seed beading and macramé! The holes are approximately .8mm in diameter and 1.75mm apart center to center. You can string the frames with beads or embroidery cord or use the pieces with holes at the bottom to create beaded fringe or macramé. Mix things up with something new, and add more texture, color, and even movement to your pieces. These new wood panels create new possibilities for your design process, and the finished result looks wonderful. It's something you just have to try!

Each 2.7" x 3.8" Baltic Birch panel is pre-finished with a natural wood sealant for a smooth paint and finish experience. Every design is cut against the grain for strength and durability. Baltic Birch hardwood is from the snowy forests of the north and is extremely durable. Graded according to the plywood standard as B/BB, this hardwood has a single-piece face and a back veneer. The face veneer has a smooth surface with a light uniform color.

Don't forget you can paint or stain the Wood Panels to add color and coordinate with your seed bead and macrame designs!

We've packed in lots of new techniques in this blog post for you to try; the videos below will guide you in how they are done. Once you watch them, you'll be prepared to use our new Colourful Soul Wood Panels with these techniques.

This new seed beading technique is fun, and you can easily get started without having experience. This technique isn't overwhelming, and it's easy to make patterns and ombré effects because of how the frames are gridded out. Not to mention, selecting the colors of the beads and the stain to paint the wood is fun to plan out, so you can just relax and enjoy your experience!

The macramé technique may seem intimidating because it comes out so beautifully, but let me assure you this technique is stress-free and easy too! The results are instant, and you can easily make dynamic focals! It also doesn't take a lot of time, and because it's easy, you won't need to be skill invested. The macramé technique will allow you to add even more diversity to your jewelry making and is a fun, relaxing experience!

We have a third new technique to use when utilizing the macramé technique; you can also use our Colourful Ultimate Stain to dye the embroidery floss creating new colors, ombré effects and other color variations! Let this technique be a new tool for more color when designing!

 

For the Seed Beading Technique, Fire Line by Beadsmith was utilized and is easily threadable as well as strong. The Flexible Beading Needle used for the Seed Beading Technique as well as Macramé is perfect because it easily maneuvers through the holes of the Pop-Outs; it's a must-have for our new techniques.

The Pop-Out Frames are specifically designed to work with 11/0 Seed Beads, so they are the ideal size to work with. We've linked the colors of the seed beads used in the projects below, so you can easily find them. We highly recommend them for a great creating experience.

Our NEW Soft Bristle Brush Set is artist quality and perfect for getting our Colourful Soul Ultimate Stain even and smooth on our Colourful Soul Wood Pop-Outs. The brushes come in 5 different sizes for your various staining and painting needs.
