Alternative Perler Decoration

Posted on

After going to cons for so many years, I love to be proven wrong about a medium I may have written off due to over exposure. One such medium for me are perler beads, so I was pleasently surprised when I came across taytaym2‘s work.

Even though these examples are still pixel based like most perler art, I hadn’t seen anyone use them in such a unique way before. The light switch especially is a great idea for all those geeky parents wanting a special glowing decoration in their child’s room. 😀

While taytaym2 only seems to have a few of these perler creations online, I hope they continue to design more as I would love to see perlers continued to be used as a decorative but also functional medium. 🙂
