i know i should have just added to the existing thread, but it's so popular and was getting really long.  anyway, here are a few pieces that i've just tried where i tried fusing different pieces together, and fusing rhinestones to the existing pieces.  i'm soooo excited about them.

i bet there are possiblities for making charms or just whatever out of a bunch of rhinestones just fused together.  i only tried it with some clear ones, but i don't see why other colors and stuff would work also.  if anyone tries it let me see!

edit: i've also discovered that with my drimmel and a diamond sanding bit i have quite a bit of control over the shape of each piece, and it's an easy way to take off the jagged edges.  i think as far as a sealer goes, i'm going to try using some nail polish.  i figure it's permanent and will be great for stopping flaking and act as a good barrier between the metal side of the cd and your skin.

I used clear nail polish on the back of my cd peices. It works for the most part. Wink

I was so bummed when I realized about the flaking!

-But yes, clear polish.

For the pictures you put up this time, about how long did you bake them for?

How did the CDs end up gold? Really good job!

So clear nail polish helps with flaking? Who knew  Wink  I just read the original thread and am planning to try it tomorrow. These look really great!
