Perler Tardis by ShiloT Perler Tardis by ShiloT
Now that is has safely appeared in Vancouver where it belongs, I can show it off. This was a "just because I can" gift for my best friend. I wanted to see if I could, so I did. :XD: I drew the sprite and beaded it. It took well over 8000 beads and nearly a dozen hours to complete. Her reaction was totally worth it. :D

Love this so much. It is the perfect T.A.R.D.I.S.Would it be possible to get bead count and dimensions and a template true to size? I would love to make this to hang on my wall.

I laid it out on a large table, and used sheets of of parchment paper and slowly ironed it starting at the bottom and working my way up. I used books to keep the ironed pieces flat. It takes a long time, took me I think 2 hours... you have to be patient lol.

What have you done? As someone who loves to work with fuse beads and has become addicted to Dr. Who recently I so want to do this. But it's so big! Well done! :)

It's ironed only on one side. What you see is the front, the un-ironed side. The back is a royal mess, really. :XD: But I cover that with black foam core, which makes the sprite extremely stiff and strong, even at it's large size. I prefer to do all my larger sprites one sided, as the un-ironed beads I feel give a much more uniform and clean look.

AMAZING idea, never thought of that before! how do you attach the foam to the beads?

I used a glue called "Quick Grip". It's extremely strong and fuses to the foam core board. Foam core is the best to use for backing because it's light, cuts to shape easy, but very durable, and thick so the sprite (even as big as this one) won't bend.

Oh yes, if you have a sprite, you can make *anything*. It's a lot of fun. The big ones are so much work, but SO worth it cause they just look amazing.
