1  Family Guy HUGE Project (IMG Heavy) in Completed Projects by Sphynxz on: July 03, 2011 10:15:09 AM
One weekend, I decided that I wanted to experiment with making a ridiculously huge perler bead project. I found two sprites that I liked, combined them, and added a couch...that took about 2 hours....UGH!

I bought the supplies and started on the project. It took two full weekends.

I used 50 square pegs, I have no idea how many perler and hama beads, and lots of energy drinks.

This was the first weekend's work. I ran out of Peter's skin color; so, I had to wait.






All the pieces together. I used textbooks, hand weights and much more to keep it flat.


I bought two pieces of heavy duty foam board for the backing. After I glued the project on the board, I laid it upside down and put all the weights back on top to keep it flat. Then, I used an exacto knife and cut the excess board around the picture. It's HUGE (4'X3') and there are a lot of mistakes; however, it's the first big one I've done.

My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year this past Friday; so, I decided that I'd attempt this for his gift since he had sketched a beautiful portrait of us for my 21st this past year.



And here's the picture I used with it.



I'd never used watercolors before...this was fun...although, the masking fluid is a pain to work with.
