well to be honest, i just did it by "ear and eye" i think i preheated and baked at 350 and just kept checking on it (ill say anywhere from 5-10 min) i must warn you, the smell is horrible, and make sure you line the pan with foil.

Rock on!  Great work, it's good to see this revisited.  For those who want more info (and so manda doesn't have to go over every single in and out of bead melting)
Check out this thread: It's the Bead-Melting Craft a long.
Read through that and you'll find dozens of projects and tips.  Smiley
