The History of Aquabeads

The Invention of Aquabeads

One day, a staff member at EPOCH in Tokyo wanted to eat some hard sweets. As she opened the jar she found that some of the sweets were stuck together. The shape of the sweets stuck together looked just like a rabbits ear. Then she had a light bulb moment! Wouldn’t it be fun to create pictures using beads that stay together just like the sweets did!
Inspiration is all you need!!

How do they stay together with water?

One of the ingredients of the beads is PVOH. In Japan, PVOH is used in stamps and glue. When you spray water on the beads this ingredient dissolves and sticks together.
Unique Ingredient!
