You create the pixel works using a "color pattern" as guide. You can slide the transparent base plate over the color pattern, so that you can see exactly where each pixel color should be placed.
Applying the pixels is just as simple!
Put the pixels onto the pins on the plate and they stick into place. No glue or ironing required!
Pixel XL is suitable for ages ranging from 4 years old and up. Pixel XL is twice as large (5x5x3 mm) as the smaller variant.
You place the Pixel XL pixel on 4 baseplate pins as opposed to 1.

Pixel XL is suitable for ages ranging from 4 and up. The pixels are 2.5x2.5 mm. You place the Pixel on 1 baseplate pin.
The pixel artwork is built up from a sub-pattern. On every pattern part there are 4 different symbols:
These symbols correspond with color numbers that are located on the back of every pixel-mat.
Slide the transparent baseplate over the sub-pattern, and see exactly where to place which pixel color without having to count the spaces.
You can put the pixels on the baseplate pins using your hands or using tweezers.
No glue or ironing required.
When you have completed tracing the first sub-pattern, you can continue by sliding the next sub-pattern under the transparent baseplate (pay attention and make sure that the arrows still point the same way).
Repeat this process until the entire plate is full of pixels.
We also have instruction videos to give a better image of the process of "pixeling".
There are more that 800 existing patterns you can find in the Pattern Catalogue, but you can also choose to pixel your own pictures.
Our Tweezers are especially developed for Pixelhobby. Which one is your favorite?
The baseplate of Pixelhobby has no less than 2000 pins (50x40). An arrow is shown on the back of the baseplate. This arrow indicates the orientation of the baseplate and the pixel work. When "pixeling", it is important that the direction of the arrow always points in the same direction. For example always up or always to the right.
There are 4 notches on the back of the base plate. These notches are made for the dovetail connectors. With these dovetails you can connect the base plates together. You can make the project as big as you keep adding more baseplates!
Does your base plate keep shifting? By using the template you can prevent this problem...
Requirements: Template, transparent folder and adhesive tape.
1. Put the pattern in a plastic case.
2. Place the template in the correct position on the pattern so that all symbols are visible.
3. Stick the template on with an adhesive tape (the plastic case prevents the pattern from tearing).
4. Then you can place the base plate in the template and you can begin "pixeling"!
Do you want to order a frame for your pixel work? The order number of the correct frame can be found on the first page of the pattern, the material list. For example 2x2P or 4x5L.
