Perler Bead Sprites

So, lately I've been making game sprites using perler beads (aka melty beads). You place them on a grid and run an iron over them until they melt together. It's pretty simple, but I spent like around $50 just buying the beads online (like $10 shipping ><). I didn't even buy any Red, Green, or Yellow colors so I can't make Pikachu or much.

I'm having a lot of fun making these. The concept may sound easy, but what takes the longest is putting them together on the boards. Someone at work wants to buy the Raccoon Mario one I made. I'm thinking about selling them on Ebay, but I need to get lots of beads and make a variety of sprites first.
