My boyfriend was after a sprite image of Link & Mega man for a new pixel tattoo for both his wrists, and I came across you guys Very Happy

I cant believe how talented you guys are, so who knows where to get the best variety of beads from?

I looked on the Perler site as there're better colour selection but shipping to Uk is £9.20, last night the total was £14, with just 3 colours (1000 each)

Im gonna try toysRus today for a tester at them, rather buying loads & finding out that im crap at the ironing bit.

Hi, I'm quite new here myself. Welcome!

There are many places you can order Perler/Hama beads online, but I actually got my first batch at AC Moore. I have no idea if they're located all over or not, but I was able to print out a 50% off any item coupon on their website. Using that, I was able to get a tub of 22,000 beads for about $9.00. Even better, I was with someone, so they used another coupon to purchase a kit that was supposed to be used for making pirate-themed stuff. Either way, it had 5,000 beads and a pegboard, which I got for around $6.00.

Unfortunately, sorting through all these beads is a royal pain in the butt, and is certainly an exercise in patience. Couldn't beat the price, though. Very Happy

Yeah, I think I may wind up doing the same once I get this tub sorted out and I realize what I actually need. Figure I might get some Hama beads, too.

29 x 29, as far as I know. PhotoPearls might make ones that are bigger, but the most widely available are 29 x 29. Get 'em at a craft store or online through callahan13.

Of note, I found a two-pack of that size (29x29) for $5 at Michael's, and at least here, they always send out coupons for 20 or 40% off of a regularly-priced item in the newspaper.

I got some big tubs of beads from Ikea - about 10,000 I guessttimate for £4.99.

Mixed colours, identical in size to Hama, but require a little more heat to fuse.

You still need auxilliary colours like Flesh, Light Blue, Burgundy etc, but as a cheapy source of primary colours they can't be beaten.

Mix with Hama, PhotoPearls and perler and you'll have a great pallet! Smile
