Just a quick question from a newbie here ^^ Is there a particular way you put the beads down onto the foil so that they don't shift or seperate from eachother when you put them into the oven?

Is it best to just completely fill up the sheet so that it is formfitted? I'm not exactly sure how pony beads melt, so I was just curious. Do they generally retain thier shape during the melting process?

Thanks a bunch!

I filled the entire sheet, but you don't have to.  Smiley  I posted pix of the first one so you can see how the beads are arranged http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=101446.0  How the beads melt entirely depends on how long you let them melt... at first they shrink a bit, then they poof up, then the start to ooze down and if you let them melt long enough they will melt entirely flat & lose their shape (if they have the space to do so).
