I took a trip to the Local JoAnn’s in Arizona today, and they had some of the new Perler colors and packages out. I thought those of you who visit the page might be interested.
First up, we have some new jars of beads. This new packaging has 18k beads and includes multiple stripey beads and pearly beads that the 22k jars do not have. The 18k and the 22k were both priced at $24.99 USD.
These are the things that I bought. The 6k bags were $12.99 USD, the roll of ironing paper (similar to a roll of parchment paper) was $4.99 USD, and the 1k bags were $2.99 USD.
This is a new color called “Evergreen” it is a shade darker than the “Dark Green”. It will come in really handy for some of the more detailed pieces.
This is the “Fairy Dust” which is a translucent green with a few “sparkles” in it. I can’t see a ton of uses for it, but I will try to get it in an upcoming product.
Here are some other shots of the selection with multiple colors of 1k and 6k bags.
Beads are all sorted. It took forever, but I have time during the day to get it all done. I love the color palettes that come out as colors are removed from the mix.
I tend to separate by taking out the darker colors first since they stand out the most.
This bucket of 22,000 beads took about 4 days to separate. I doubt many people do it this way, but the way I see it, you either separate as you build, or you do it beforehand. I like that you know how many of any particular color you have so you can plan projects accordingly.
