A few months back, I picked up a few “Super Pegboards“. I don’t use them quite as much as I could, but they do come in handy. It’s nice to not have to link a bunch of boards together, and it makes it way easier to transport. The packaging for the super pegboard comes with a scale example of a Macaw Parrot (picture) you can make, so I stepped up to the challenge.
This is by far one of the more challenging pieces to make. The colors are many and complex in placement. It took me just over 2 hours. I think it would have been quicker, but I was trying out my new workstation setup on the desk, and the lighting isn’t the greatest.
Over on the Reddit Beadsprite forum http://www.reddit.com/r/beadsprites a conversation started up about the “Parrot Green” Perler color that of course led to repeating lines from the classic Monty Python sketch, which was the inspiration I needed to give it a shot. I really like the way it came out.
