Hama bead sprites
Brian Nelson on Techerator posted this fantastic tutorial for How to make your favourite nintendo characters with perler beads. I love perler beads (actually, I use hama beads, because that’s what’s readily available in the UK, but they’re exactly the same thing so…) and I haven’t made anything out of them for about 10 years, so I bought myself a load of hama beads in all different colours, and put the tutorial to the test!
Being as it’s been so long since I did anything with hama beads, I started with something really simple – a mario mushroom! I also put several rows of beads around the edges of the design to make a coaster! (I love my creations to be functional!) See my attempt after the cut!
