^ okay i understand now:) I have a few of those beads now.  I can buy them here in Canada, but actually when i was in denmark is when i bought the ones that i have.   i really have to try this. did u buy the large peg board or make it?

yes, i used the larger one 29x29 pegs. and then i made that one with 3x3 perler beads and glued them onto a cardboard. there are actually pegboards that you can hook on to eachother and do it as big as you want but i rather glue them together later. it must be really hard to iron a perler bead from 3x3 pegboards.

my husband is working on a big portrait too.... he wasnt sure whether or not to iron them?  what kind of glue did u use?  My daughter wanted to make a little ornament but I wasnt sure how to iron hers??  all perlerbeads.com says is to follow manufacturers instructions yadayada ...??  and what is ironing paper?  can I use any ole ' paper?  our perlers were refill packs and didnt come w/any paper  Embarrassed .. i tried regular paper on a medium setting but not all the perlers melted and some melted tooo much and the holes got smaller!!! it was a mess! Helppp please! I figure you must know somethin' about this w/all your wonderful perler projects  Grin thanks! Smiley
Shocked

I think you have to iron them, how else would the stick together? I used glue made for wood, you now those big bottles, to glue them to the background (cardboard i.e.) but i ironed them first. The kind of paper you use for baking tins will do just fine. I always use that and then iron at medium to high heath. The hard part is to iron it even, you'll have to iron the entire perler bead and look careful so that it looks even and that all beads stick together. Too much heat will make the beads look square. I think you'll have to try a couple of times. Good luck!
