Transform your favourite digital pics into pixel portraits with 6,400 plastic pegs in six vivid colours.
What is Pixel Art?
Quercetti has created an kit that allows you to create a picture that look just like a photo, using only the famous Quercetti pegs. They come in 6 different colours (white, yellow, red, green, blue, black) and you insert them into perforated boards. For every board you can download and print a PDF, which you then place on the board and use to make up the picture easily by putting the pegs into the perforations following the colour pattern on the sheets.
Use your personal photos or download free, ready-to-use images (internet access required to download images). The visual effect you can achieve is astounding: with only 6 different colours, thousands of shades can be created. This is thanks to the an optical effect that mixes basic colours in the eye of the observer.
Each of the 9 included boards measures approximately 10” x 13”, and combine to make a canvas of approximately 30” x 39”, complete with a black plastic frame. You can even purchase multiple sets to create an even larger project by combining boards!
Access to computer, and printer required (not included).
