Details of swap:
Unleash your inner melt-o-maniac! This is the swap where you get to melt random objects to your hearts content and make them into something useful/creative/decorative/all-of-the-above. What kind of random objects? The choice is yours, but it should probably be some kind of plastic (unless you have laser vision or access to an industrial furnace and can melt steel!). Plastic pyromaniacs unite!

You will need to craft 1 large item, 2 medium items and 2 small items (or the equivalent: 2 large, 2 small or 1 large, 3 medium, etc.). Please ship with a DC# and remember to PM me with the DC# when you ship and when you receive. Also, make sure to show off what you receive- feedback will not be given until you have posted the pics of what you have received. If you are not able to take the pics yourself, check to see if your partner can post pics of what was sent.

And, safety firstplease make sure that you do all of your melting with adequate ventilation and proper fire safety. We dont want any melted Craftsters!

Oooh- I'm getting excited now! And, while desperately searching for something this weekend (which remains among the missing), I found a bunch of items that I had bought to try to melt. So now I have stuff to work with and it was already in my stash! Wink
