I wonder how it would come out if you incorporate "shrinky dink" paper with the cd in the oven? hmm.... Kiss

Whoah! Hehehe!
Amazing stuff.
I started reading, then grabbed a re-writable cd from the pile, and ran down to the microwave.
I put the cd in the microwave, on full power for about a second. It crackled and sparked LOADS.
When i got it out, the top of the cd, the print bit that had crackled, was all flaking off.
Cause i was in a hurry to have a go, i didnt heat the oven properly, so mine weren't in long enough. They didn't change colour, and didn't get that gorgeous underwater feel that i've seen on here, but i get the idea.
I'll have a play tomorrow.
It's 1am here  Grin
So......when you're baking the cds....what side do you put on the foil?
The side you write on or the other side?
I did it writing side up, cause i thought the silver part (that was flaking already) might stick to the foil and pull it all off if i put it that side down.
Also, does baking it for a long time prevent the flakiness, or has everyone here sealed the backs?

blue bunny - the flaking is normal, and they dont change colour, the colour depends what colour cd you put in in the first place. when baking, you can put either side down as long as u put them on non stick greaseproof oven papar, or something like that. i put the "nice" side down when cooking as the edges tend to curl up. cooking them in the oven does stop the flaking, it just sort of melts back in again. but i sealed mine as well with nail polish, just in case  Grin.

hope that helps, lauren

Thanks Lauren.
Sorry about all the obvious questions!
I just did 3 cd's worth. They look amazing.
I have an aqua, a blue, a gold and a 'normal' cd coloured one  Grin
My fingers are sore fro cutting them!
And yeah, i'm sitting here now with the nail polish infront of me!
Thanks for the help!

...lmao, this is probably a really stupid question...but do i wear gloves or anything while i cut them? i can imagine that the cd's are sticky...and i'd rather not end up with melted cd all over my fingers.  Wink

This has probablu been asked here a few times before, but I don't feel like going through thirty pages (Lips sealed), so--how long did you have yours in the oven?

id say i checked mine every 5 minutes...once they were looking good i checked every 2 minutes...be careful when you open the door, and hold some material overyour mouth, the smell is nasty and poisonous...be sure to open all windws and use an exhaust fan.

I left some of mine in a toaster oven (it's all we've got in the studio) at 400 for, I want to say about five minutes max, and when I took them out, they all made crackling noises and were bubbly. After that, I did some trials (I had a LOT of pieces) with one minute, one and a half minutes, two minutes, and my last pair (the ones I plan on keepign for myself for earrings) for two minutes 20 seconds. What should they be looking like? My corners curved up, but the sides aren't smooth or anything. I guess it doesn't really matter so much, as long as my results work, right?

I'll probably post pictures soon.
