FF6 Characters (WIP)

Postby Cerity » Tue Jun 01, 2010 7:49 am

Finals are coming up, but I just got my shipment from Michelle and I couldn't wait to start >.>.

This is my first perler bead project! I'm still experimenting with ironing techniques and making use of limited colors, but it's fun so far!

6-1-10: Opera Celes. I might end up doing a re-coloring of her XD.

Thanks everyone!

I've been experimenting with other types of beads to order for another project, one of them being glow-in-the-dark. I plan to trim the edges to attempt a crisper outline. Here's the result of that testing:
(Sorry the glowing pics are hard to see, cameras do notoriously badly in dim light XD)

Thank you!

The glow in the dark ones seem to go okay. I had a little trouble with a few beads for some reason didn't want to melt properly, had to take a lot of direct poking with the iron to melt with the other ones. Came out okay though!

They glow fairly strongly for a little while. It's kind of funny, I have the box of glow in the dark sitting out, and they're like a night light. Sometimes I shake them and get the un-lit ones in the middle of the box to show, kind of fun ^^. The glow in the dark pacman ghosts and mario stars that have been posted here are great ideas for decorating a bedroom.

Aaaand Here is another experiment! I wanted to try glitter beads next, and the only color I had was purple. Who else could I do but Ultros?!

Shading be damned, he turned out really well. Still working on other ironing techniques too.
