Projects > Perler beads > Arle from Puyo Puyo Sun
larger project I made out of Perler beads. It's the
character Arle from the video game Puyo Puyo Sun. The
sprite I used was 54 pixels wide and 89 pixels tall, so
the completed project is 10 1/2" x 17 1/2" (27
x 44.5 cm).
It took about an hour to pick the image I wanted to use, count the colors and find the closest colors of beads. It then took six hours to arrange the beads on the pegboards, and another 20 minutes to fuse them with the iron.
If you're not familiar with how to fuse Perler beads, you can read these instructions on the manufacturer's site.
Arle as she appears in the game. She really does have an
orange tint to her, but I may have picked too bright an
orange. It was the only one I could find after using the
mustard color for the lighter tone. In hindsight, the
pink I chose is also a bit light.
Below you can see the work in progress as I was assembling it. The outline took a bit longer than expected because it involved a lot of counting and double-checking.

|Nice contrasting expressions between Arle and Draco, who I made a few days later.|
