A Perth paedophile has been found guilty of conspiring to travel to Thailand to commit sex offences against children.

Mark Pendleton has been on trial for the past two weeks over allegations he was planning with two other paedophiles to travel overseas once they were released from prison.

The Supreme Court was told the men were planning to start a doll making business to get in touch with local women to get access to their children.

Pendleton denied the allegations but a jury deliberated for five hours before finding him guilty of two charges.

The jury will continue its deliberations next week on a third charge.
