Richard Bonehill who portrayed Nien Nunb in Return of the Jedi passed away last week.  Even though he did not have much screen time, together with the puppeteer skills of Mike Quinn, and the voice of Kipsang Rotich, Bonehill created a character that was very distinctive and, will be an engrained in our Star Wars consciousness for a long time to come.

Here’s a toast Toast for Mr Bonehill (a toast with “Cloud City Punch with Millennium Falcon Ice Ship” in our glasses, of course)!!!

…and here is #9 in the Perler bead/cross-stitch/Lego/pixel/mosaic series.

Needed:

How To:

  • Download and print out the pattern provided (mirror it, if you only plan on ironing on only 1 side).
  • Cut out, then tape pattern to the back of the Perler Pegboard so the dots line up with the pegs.
  • Add the Perler beads (tweezers are pretty handy if you don’t have a 6 yr old’s tiny fingers).
  • Carefully move pegboard to ironing board, place parchment (or Perler ironing paper) on top.
  • Iron until the beads start melting together (If you have never done this before, it might take some practice to get it “just right”).
  • Let cool for a bit, remove from Perler Pegboard and remove paper.
  • Optional: turn over, cover with parchment paper and iron on other side. (put something solid and heatproof underneath to make ironing easier)
  • If you only iron on 1 side, place it under something flat and heavy while it cools, to avoid curving.
  • Cut cork about 1/4” smaller than the square, affix to the back.
  • Don’t forget the Cloud City Punch. Enjoy!

Tips:

Usually people iron on both sides of the Perler bead design, but I prefer to only do the back. The designs look crisper and more “pixely”.  With the cork on the back, I have not had any problems with the coasters falling apart, but feel free to iron yours on both sides.

Note, if you only plan on iron on only 1 side, you need to mirror the pattern.

Also, the coasters are pretty hard to clean, so try not to get anything too gunky in there.
