Well I won't be doing this anymore, unless I do it outside on the grill...what a nasty stink this makes...but, here are my pretty bowls!!!





I like the "tri" beads better...and the "see through" melted quicker.

I think they're neat!  Are you willing to share your technique?  (And thanks for the heads-up on the funk!  Definitely an outdoor project, then huh?  Smiley)

This is a fun project if you can stand the smell.  I'm not even sure if it would work outside on the grill, but I am eventually going to give it a try.  I found a tute on here somewhere...I'll look around and see if I can find it for ya'll.  All you really do is turn your oven on (pretty warm), lay alot of whatever kind of beads you are using in a circle on a metal cookie sheet, carefully place into the oven, let beads melt - this is the stinky part, pull pan out of oven, let beads cool and harden, remove bead "disk" from cookie sheet, place an oven proof bowl upside down on cookie sheet, place bead "disk" onto bowl, put back into oven until "disk" becomes a bowl.  Remove from oven, let cool, remove bead bowl from oven proof bowl.  Ta-da!  easy peasy if you can stand the smell.  If I try it on the grill, I will still use the cookie sheet and oven proof bowl, I'm just not sure that the grill would get hot enough to melt the plastic.  I'm not real sure of the temperature I used in the oven.  I know it was at least 350...maybe hotter.  I guess hotter = less time in oven? Well, anyways, I hope ya'll have fun making these.  They turn out really neat!

Here's one of my shades with a similar process http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100703.0  There are some links on there to other pieces, too.

You can form them into funky shapes like the one here, too http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=196925.msg2145512#msg2145512

I've heard that a grill does work.  I know a toaster oven works as well.

...I'm a melting addict! Cheesy

If you want to do it in the oven in the house make sure your windows are open. It's mega stinky.

So it doesn't do anything to your oven......once the stink is gone it's okay to carry-on using it for cookin?Cos I still want to cook the Sunday dinner in it or my kids will go crazy! and use me for  a next project!!!!

Yep, the oven is totally fine! Smiley  (as long as you don't spill your beads Cheesy)

Please please please don't do this project (the baking portion) with your kids, animals, etc. anywhere near the kitchen.  The fumes from melting plastic are toxic!  I open all of our windows, our backdoor and put our vent on "turbo."  I stay out of the room as much as possible and I don't open the oven door to see how it's doing.  I look through the window.  When I remove pieces from the oven, I cover my face with a towel.

I haven't tried to make anything yet myself, but mostly because I live in an apartment, don't have many windows and our smoke alarm goes off when we boil water. lol

Those bowls are beautiful!

Quick question-

You know those beads that are used by little kids...and they put them in these shaped molds, and iron them, and they form into little melted plastic things that you can use as coasters?

Anyway, if you have any idea of what I'm trying to describe...Could you use those types of beads for this type of project?

Perler beads!  You can use them for all sorts of pieces, but I don't recall if I've seen them made into bowls.  Here are some other projects with them floating around Craftster, though...

I've never used Perler beads - would they stick together if you bent them into the shape of a bowl?
