Just Bead It by Sibsy Just Bead It by Sibsy
Been dabbling back in perler beads again. I needed a new hobby, and I remembered these from when my sister had them growing up.

8-bit art seems to be the fun thing to do...and well, it's true! Here are some of my latest..

those...loop de loop legs on Sonic...I forget the term for it.... still good.

Man...couting all the pixels, I'd lose count after a while.

What is all the information required if one were to try and make things just like these? What are these beads called and is there a machine with it?

You just have to go to your local craft store and pick them up. They are called perler beads. You need the little boards to put them on, and then once you're done your image, you iron them and they stick together.

dont forget to put wax paper over them and iron it with the wax paper on it! Or the perler beads will burn.

These are nice. And yea, color sorting is a PAIN!!

I've been doing a lot of these recently too. I made a bunch of random characters (Dr Wario Viruses, Pokemon, Mario Objects, Transformer Logos) and of course Tetris pieces.

And I bought a roll of sticky magnets and I super glued (for extra adhesive) the magnets to the back.

They've taken over my fridge and my metal locker.

Let's just say, I love playing tetris on my locker!!

LOL, my room mate prints out the pixel designs and gets the kids at the school he works at to make them for him, he has a whole assembly line of kids to help him sort and place the beads! You need a sweat shop of kids too!

For a second there, I mistook the pokemon for one of the Bubble Bobble dinos with a bit of creative liberties taken. ^^

These are really cute!

Yea, I don't even know what that Pokemon's name is...I just thought he was cute. It's hard to tell, but there is another shade of blue in him. I never ironed him cause I wasn't 100% on it cause of the colours.

Ah well!
