I could actually make this my first swap if I really wanted... The only thing that's worrying is that I've never meltcrafted anything bigger than a coaster...
Well... I've got plenty of time to think about it.
I've never melted anything either besides shrink plastic. But, it sounds like fun!
I want to do this. But I don't know what all I can do. :[
Did you peruse the list of links on the first page? There are some things you can melt besides beads.
but my mom smelled the cds she told me id be grounded for a year if i did it again w/o permition
Ooops! I guess if I was melting in my mom's oven, she'd pretty much pitch a fit, too!
i want to try melting stuff in my toaster oven/ oven, ive got permition!!, but the one consern my parents had is that it would make the oven smell like melting plastic every time they use it.
Has anyone had this problom?
Glad you have permission now! I don't know if it would make the oven smell, though. I know when I do polymer clay, I cover it with foil to "contain" the fumes and then open it up the foil outside. I don't know if it's the best idea for the clay, but it makes the house and oven less stinky. Maybe someone with more melting experience can answer this better...
