need is included in the kit with the exception of tweezers. Blunt-ended
are best to avoid scratching or damaging the tiles (these can
be found on our Other Supplies
page). After placing the pixels onto the baseplate with the tweezers,
push them down with your finger.
A magnetic board
and strips are excellent for keeping the baseplate in place when
Find an embossed arrow on the smooth side of the baseboard. Ensure
this is facing the same way on every design so you know which
way up it goes (if you drop it)!!
2) Place the baseplate onto the top
rectangle on the first page of the design sheets.
3) Find the first symbol alongside
the rectangle (a black square) and note the pixel colour number
4) Locate this number on the coloured
pixel squares. It is located on the reverse inside a circle.
5) Cover all of the black squares
on the rectangle with this colour. Repeat this step for all of
the four symbols displayed.
6) When all the symbols are covered,
move onto the second rectangle and complete as above using the
new colours as displayed.
7) Work through the other pages of
the design in the same way. For multi-baseplate kits, once baseplate
1 is covered, complete other baseplates similarly.
8) Once completed, the finish of
your masterpiece will be enhanced by tapping the pixels down evenly
with a non-scratch implement. We suggest a small rounded wooden
pestle or rolling pin and a rubber mallet.
For a multi-base kit,
we recommend mounting your finished design on to self-adhesive
The baseplates now come with recesses in the reverse which allow
small dove tail clips to be inserted to bring the baseplates tightly
together after completing the design. This simplifies the preparation
of the picture prior to placing on foam board and/or framing.
