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

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.
