    Default The Official Perler Bead Nintendo Thread

    After seeing someone who made nintendo characters out of Perler Beads at the last NAVA, I remember that I had a ton of those beads from when my daughter and I use to make things with them. I looked online for some patterns and began making some. So far here is what I have made. I am currently working on a 3ft tall Mega Man which I will post pics up as soon as I am done with them.


    Glass Joe, took about a day to make, love it so much I may make the rest of the PunchOut crew!


    StarFox logo, which was takwn from the Mario Paint guide.


    Some random ones that I made. Mega Man was the first one I made. I make make the entire cast from FFI to go with the Black Mage.

    Oooh ooh is this a post pics of your perler bead art thread?





    We just made a ton more but those were the ones we started with. Do you have them up on the wall? What are you using to secure them?

    That Glass Joe is sweet. How many boards did it take?

    I've been meaning to do some stuff with perler beads, but I think that Starfox logo would look great out of legos. I'm not sure if I have enough legos to do it, but I'll have to see. What are it's dimensions in pixels?

    I've done these for a long time, but not so much lately. I have tons of spare beads right now if anyone wants something made for them (for some sort of trade).

    Here's some of the ones I've made: http://kevlargibs.net/cryomancer/img/beads/

    Alrighty. I've been doing these off and on for over 10 years. I brought a whole batch to a NAVA at Mike Etler's store in the 90's and made some big bucks. Here's a sample:





    Here's something called Mosaic Tile, not Perler beads, sorry:


    A pillow my wife made, again not Perler beads but cool:


    I have also done some cross stitch stuff, but I don't have any scans of it yet.

    Made these last week.

    I prefer to melt the beads closed.

    Fighter Hayabusa (Pro Wrestling) got a bit warped on the bottom from over-heating but Alex is looking good.

    They're currently magnets on my fridge!



    A WINNER IS YOU!

    Yeah those were ones that a couple board members wanted. I've done 1-3 at least twice now. What's really annoying is that the magenta-reddish color a lot of them use didn't exist back then and now there's one that looks a lot closer.
