(or perhaps you refer to them as nabbi pearls, that works too ;) )
Pegboard...a pair of tweezers if you want.
First I made the outlining.
Sometimes I start in a corner and work my way through it all, but this is easier for this craft.
Then I made all of the clouds.
Now you're finished with the white pearls, besides from the two white ones that goes on the eyes.
Then I make the black outlining of the dino!
Fill up the lines with the color of choise. I made a darker outlining on mine.
Then you just fill it up with the sky-blue and the dino's color :)
Bring out your iron and some ironing paper / baking sheet paper.
Iron goes on medium - high, but do try the medium heat first so that you wont melt it totally at first try!
Cover your dino!
Now it should be melted together.
You can choose for yourself just about how melted you'd like it to be.
LET IT REST FOR A COUPLE OF SECONDS!
Then CAREFULLY pull it of the peg board and flip it so that the ironed side is facing downwards.
Then cover the un-ironed side with paper...
...and iron that side as well!
When you're finished, be QUICK and...
...put some weight on the perler creation!
If you don't do this quickly your creation will bend and get tilted.
Now, you don't want that, right?
Let it rest for a couple of minutes.
Here we have some of the coasters I made!
The green one is my fav. but you can't really see it unless you click the image :D
Ready to use as coasters! :D
Here you can see them more clearly!
Go to my website at
for more pics and other works :D
(you can see enlarged pictures there where it's easier to count the number of pearls for the project.)
