I hope it's OK to start a new thread about this but I thought the other one has 30 pages and so my questions might not get seen  Huh

Anyway just seen this GREAT thread!  Shocked 

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=8959.0

The group Inna mentions seems to be closed now  Undecided  But I am trying to do this and when I put my CDs in the oven they stay the same colour until they burn  Cry Does anybody know why this happens and can help me to get it right?

Fanx for any help you can give in advance!

Hi Inna,

It really depends on the CD you are using.

The first one I tried melted all over my pan, and really didn't look interesting at all.

The second one I tried didn't turn any color, though the plastic did bubble and it looked like funky silver glass, which wasn't bad.

The third one I tried was a CD rewritable, and that did go somewhat blue.

Next I'm trying the DVD Recordables which are reddish black, so those should be interesting.

The CD's that turn blue are usually the re-writable ones, which are sort of blue in the first place. Also, it depends on what brand you are using. (The CD Rewritable I used was a VERY cheap brand, which I think is why it only turned a little blue.)

Also, the last two CD's I used - 5 second in the microwave would have blown it up! Two was more than enough, and way more than my poor heart could stand - that was SCARY! But the first one I used went five seconds just fine, and was only a very mild sparking. It really depends on what you are using.

A lot of this kind of thing is about experimentation I think - since all brands of CD's are different, how long to keep them in the oven at which temperature is a matter of trial and error.


I hope some of that helps!!

Thank you so much!  It does help.

All the CDs I used were the same, so that was probably the problem.

I'll try something different.
