NOoo... they will, it just takes A LONG TIME.  Like... almost an hour I think it was.  Eventually they will slide down together.  Once it cools, it literally pops/falls outta the metal bowl.  I was impatient & put it directly in cold water & pop! out it came.

I just took pix & my battery died.  It'll be about a half an hour for it to charge... & I'll post.  I don't think ya have to use seed beads as filler... I'm just an impatient craftster.

If you guys want taller bowls, once you take it from the mold (the pan), put it by itself on tin foil/cookie sheet & heat it for a few moments with no mold.  It will get VERY pliable.

Then shove it in a taller, thinner-shaped baking container and bake again.  Careful when transfering it...hot beads don't mesh well with your paws.    Tongs, skewers, etc., can help in accomplishing this.

I had a single glass bead in the center & it popped out Sad  I thought I had it fused with enough beads...but, alas, I did not.  Sad

Oh well, I replaced it's hole with some more beads & it's baking once again Smiley  That's the great thing.. if you mess up... just melt, melt, melt & try again!

Ohh... I like the color combo! Smiley

LOL!  Well, I lied... they do work... it just seemed to take FOREVER.  I did 15 mins at 375 first, then 10 more, then 10 more, then 10 more... I don't know what happened after that... I just let 'em keep baking.

It looked like some of the gaps weren't filling in, so then I shook some seed beads in into the gaps & put it back in Wink  It's a weird effect.

I used a wooden shiskabob skewer to push down my little "points."  It's cooling in the pan on a cooling rack now...but the gaps & goo finally mushed together.  Smiley  I hope it turns out!

YIKES, guys!

Please make note of what the News section often says...

When you quote someone's post, if it has a picture in it, please delete the reference to the picture so there's not a double bandwidth hit.

likespointysticks,

I think you are reducing the size of your images too much, so that when the listing is posting it's distorting them to try to get the image size large enough for the posting.  When we click on them & it goes to the image only page, they look great... but the posting/listing for it definitely looks distorted.

Cute bracelets though!!

I got two of Lusterbunny's cuffs as super awesome free goodies before...they are great!  Smiley  They were a total surprise for me.. and I love 'em.

I might buy some of the dollar ones to get a few more in the mix.
