#27 Perler and 8-bits

I've had recent bit of inspiration and decided to try my hand at some perler bead work. I've done a couple of things before based on 8-bit characters from Super Mario 2 and despite the time it takes to set up the beads the stuff usually comes out looking really nice. My current idea is to make coaster sets based on a variety of games. I've already picked out the games and the sprites I want to use. The coasters will be 20 pixels by 20 pixels. I'm going to start with one of the games and hopefully that will improve the speed I work at and my skill at melting the beads.
