OMG! I have never seen this before. This is just so.....OMG I just got an idea for my Christmas gifts this year! EEEK!
So the beads don't stick? they just pop off the foil or pan? Where can I find instructions for this?
And I L-O-V-E That lamp shade!
Aw... thanks!! Glad I could inspire some Christmas presents, too!
The beads don't stick at all. Remove the pan from the oven, set it on a cooling rack and as it cools (in just a few minutes) you'll start to hear the piece snap, crackle & pop from the pan.
Ok so you put the beads in a pan in the oven? At what temp for how long? This is so cool!!!!!! I love elephants!! So does my best friend, I think I know what she's getting for Christmas!
Yep! Depending on what I'm making (or if you have to reuse your pan!) I'll line the pan with foil first. If you use foil make sure it's absolutely flat & press all the wrinkles out or your piece will have wrinkles.
Place the beads in whatever pattern you like and then bake. Times & temperatures very. I've used anywhere from 275 to 375 - it just depends how much time I have on my hands to wait for the oven. The hotter the temperature, the more robust the stinky fumes will be because they don't have as much time to dissipate into the air.
-Open nearby windows and use fans
-Don't open the oven to peek at your piece a lot. You'll open the oven to the stinky fumes.
-I would imagine it's best to keep pets & kids away from the area because of the fumes.
