Joust set looks great. I think because you could mount each piece to the wall separately. You could make free floating rock pieces to mount under a couple of the birds.

Very impressive afm rfm animation.

you could just do a velcro wall and move them around all the time and change up the scenes.

She just finished her largest set yet. Large Joust set with 3 tiers. Set was huge and took a long time for her to make. Looks really awesome tho.

Just tapped into the NES world. Her first NES order. This is the small version. Which samus is 6" tall and the metroids are 5" tall. Large set would be 4x's larger.

Really nice work! I am going to have to look at my game room walls to see if there is room for something.

#110 2 years ago

I tried to take pictures of the wall, but a stairwell is impossible to take a pic that close and have it look good.

#111 2 years ago

I approve.

#112 2 years ago

How do you hang those on the wall?

Hey Cap I'm gonna ask for permission first cause I don't want to derail your thread lol. Perler beading is another one of my hobbies too. Mind if I post some of my creations?

#115 2 years ago

sure. my kid likes to see stuff people make. Some of the huge stuff is really elaborate. I always try to talk her into doing a life size Link, but she isn't having it.

Nice here's a few of mine this first one I just finished a few weeks ago it's world 1 of Super Mario 3 on a 4x3 canvas.IMG_8700 (resized).JPG

And here was our submission for the "Sterns Ultimate Pinball contest" that got us in the top 20.IMG_8585 (resized).JPG

This last one is a different version of Kyle Mckoy's "You're not the boss of me" with games that I played

if anyone has any tricks to not warping the boards when ironing, i'd love some tips. She likes it if I iron everything so the center hole is melted flat. But creates a lot of heat on the panels and warps them after a couple of uses. I tried heat gunning them back, which worked, sort of. Some I ruined beause it made the pointy grid part, melt flat.

They should have pearler bead metal panels.

There's a few ways to do this.

Do a light iron so all the beads are just fused together but not fully closed yet. Then take it off the peg board and finish ironing it on a flat surface.

You can get masking tape. Tape the entire side that's showing, poke holes in each bead for venting, take it off the peg board and then iron the opposite side. A lot of Perler artists like this one if you wanna leave the art side as clean open bead look, but it's a lot more work and I feel it doesn't give that square pixel look that the 8-bit character's look like. Granted you could always just iron the top side after you take the tape off to achieve that look.

Make a SUPER board. Get a flat piece of plywood and superglue/epoxy the pegboards to the plywood. The pegboards won't warp, they'll stay flat but now you have to store the board somewhere when you're done. Easier to store the little boards that can come apart.

All 3 ways also get rid of "board lines" when you're making bigger projects and won't warp your peg boards.

the light ironing and removing is a good idea technique. Since i'm in charge of ironing, I may do that. But she has been starting to practice ironing herself now, but hasn't quite got it, where she's comfortable doing customers projects. Seems stuff for me is the test subjects. May try the epoxy method on some as well.
