WTS: Perler Bead Art Updated 2/27


#1

11/04:
Hey guys & gals! I started a new hobby making perler bead designs & decided to share with everyone on SRK. For those who don’t know, Perler Beads are the little beads that you place on a pegboard & can make all kinds of designs with. After you are done, you give it a little ironing to fuse them all together to finish your project. I started doing this just for fun & realized that video game characters with Perler beads are pretty popular, so I figured I’d try to sell 'em.

Here are a few examples of stuff I’ve done:

That last one is 10 separate pieces I taped/glued onto canvas. The canvas itself is 16x24. I don’t wanna toot my own horn but it’s pretty cool lookin’!
Check out my Facebook page for some more stuff. https://facebook.com/CgbDesigns

If anyone is interested, I can make you something, message me on here or comment & I’ll get you a quote. The smaller sized ones usually go for about $5-6, with the medium ones like Mega Man X being about $7-8. As long as I have the colors on hand I will get it done for you quick, otherwise it’ll take a little longer to make it til I’m able to get my hands on the right colors. I’ll set up a queue for this, I’m only one person, I don’t wanna get overwhelmed in case this is popular…

So I’ll do the 1st three people & make the line from there, bumping people up as I finish each project.

Thanks for looking & I hope to hear from you soon!

Just finished up this monster…this took me about 5 hours before ironing. The sprite by itself would be about $35 because of the size. I’m gonna end up framing this one when it’s all said and done.

Man, I definitely wanna get down on this shit. I just gotta think of a cool request. Probably something from Super Metroid. Like a gnarly metroid or a background. Hmm…

EDIT: Background would probably be too big. Maybe a metroid though.


#5

I could definitely do a metroid for you. Now the only question would be do you want a big one or a small one? Big one would be about 16 x 16 inches where the small one 6 x 6.

Dude, I wish you were around 2 years ago when I was trying to do all the MM sprited SF4 characters in perler beads. I would’ve just commissioned you to do them.

I had no problem getting the designs done, but my problem was the ironing. Every time I tried to iron the designs they’d screw up and break apart super quickly.


#7

Man, it took me more than a few sprites to get used to the ironing. The first one I did was a 1-up mushroom & a bead in the corner didn’t fuse right, it looked like crap. The second one I did I didn’t properly flatten it out when I was done & it curled up. I’m good now tho lol.
