So after seeing all these cool posts with people melting tings, I HAD to try it.

So I went with the army men.  I dont have any metal mixing bowls or anything.  I saw a woman on tv just lay them out on foil on a cookie sheet and then molded it in a glass bowl.  Thats wat I did.

Here is the first on.

Yeah... it DID NOT TURN OUT!



But I gave it another go and it worked out!

Hahah, that looks really good!  I just bought a pack of army men for this purpose, but I melted *one* in the oven (for a necklace), and it made the whole house smell so bad!!  Plus, when I opened the oven, a poof of smokey stuff came out and the bad smell blasted me in the face.  So now, I am afraid.  Haha!   Grin

I love this idea!  Good work!
How hot, how long? 

I may have to take a toaster oven outside and try this one.

i start at 350 and crank it up every few minutes till they are melted.  I dont think a toaster oven is big enough. but you can try
