Hi
I know, for you its probebly old crafting
but I am just new here (and from Belgium)
I saw here some nice work with melted pony beads
so i wanted to try it out
but I yused plastic rocailles ( seed beads)......30 minutes at 250C (482 F)
 only they did not melt , no reaction at all

is it possible that some beads don't melt?
thanks for al the help Smiley

Seed beads will probably melt at a higher temperature & I'm not sure what it would be, but I'd be worried about fumes...

Oh good! I had visions of plastic smoke floating around your house! I do hope you figure out a way to do your craft. Perhaps you can adhere the seed beads by melting them onto a sheet of plastic that melts at a lower temperature or something.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

I had done the pony beads only - I think they are a softer plastic anyways - and had done it in an old stove in a separate building (camp where I was a camp nurse - helping out the arts and crafts director at times), and when I did it at home, in a toaster oven outside.

What you could do instead is perhaps melt pony beads and use the smaller seed beads for texture and colour within the design.
