How to Make a Hexafish

hexafish braceletThe Hexafish by Justin’s Toys will go down in the history books as one of the most awesometastic Rainbow Loom designs. It looks incredible in so many colour combinations.

If you are not up to making your own Hexafish, you can always purchase one (or two or three) from CraftsforDiabetes on Etsy. (That’s what we did!)

CraftsforDiabetes is selling Rainbow Loom bracelets to raise money for Team Diabetes Canada. The Toronto based trio is running a marathon for Team Diabetes in Reykjavik, Iceland on August 23rd, 2014. The money they make from their shop goes directly to Team Diabetes.

    This bracelet looks cool. I’ll make this for my brother so he will download the game, “Atelier Escha & Logy”. I must finish this or else! He will not download it. FOREVER.

      Yes, you do so you should just use bad bands that you don’t want at the beginning because you are going to rip them out anyways.

  9. epicupcake says:

    wow, this is amazing but it takes loads of bands so i couldn’t be bothered in the end. it looks really good though and the guy explains it really well, unlike the snake belly where he doesn’t say anything at all!! 🙂

    Ronilo, Thats SO COOL!!!!!!!!!!!(clap) …but how did u do that? Like, did u place the band s in a triangle or something?

    • Ronilo says:

      First I moved a pin bar like the formation on a triple-single (but you’ll only use 2 pegs!). Place 3 infinity signs in a triangle and get a band and place on top until it is long enough and you are done!

  13. Alyssa~ says:

    Does anyone know where to get that kind of loom? I don’t have one with movable pins and bases… :/

    • Izzy says:

      Buy one online, on the rainbow loom website or ebay or amazon. U can also get them a Claire’s Accessory’s. They are $14.99 on the rainbow loom website, £20.00 in Claire’s and prices vary on ebay or amazon ( I got mine for £4.49 on ebay with hook.)Hope this helped 🙂

    I do not have one of them looms i have a bandloom and it is hard to do it with them!!!Do you have one i can do it with!!!!!!!Someone please help!!! :/

  16. LoomBandAdvice says:

    This bracelet is sooo time-consumingly annoying! What if a band snaps? It’s all over! Make sure to check before you place them on. I usually stretch them out; if a bracelet goes thinner and paler in colour, then it will either snap right then or snap during hooking. If the band stays shiny and full, then it’s okay to use. By the way, I normally find that Rainbow Loom brand bands are better than any cheap market ones.

    Dear Loom Love,

    Could you put more Monster Tail videos. Also try and make a potato charm…



  18. Mellie says:

    So I’m attempting a hexafish for the first time, using a monster tail. My bracelet is not at all smooth. It’s lumpy on some spots, and puckered in on others. How do I fix it?

  19. Anam Abbasi says:

    I also made a bracelet and called it the Side hearts bracelet and it only needs a HOOK!!!!!!every one says its fantastic!!!!
