living with an inferno doesn't mean it has to swallow you whole, you just have to know when to feed the flames.

All that fuss over that one little thing?  Too funny!

It's a bit addicting isn't it?  The results, NOT the fumes!

Cute.

PinkyK made a pin/brooch, which is similar to what you did.

PinkyK and I are trying to figure out how to assemble a new type of bracelet. The bracelets, if we can manage to put them together should be pretty cool.

Keep it up,

I read this whole thread and had many a good giggle   Cheesy   thanks for the fun read!

and yes, I'm inspired to try melting stuff too.  I keep thinking of mixing the beads with other plastics, like those "bulbs" from Lite-Brite sets or the little plastic grains that come in those melt-it-yourself stained glass ornament kits....

or Legos, we've got TONS of Legos around the house and my son is showing signs of being too "cool" for Lego now. 

has any one experimented with mixing different types of plastics stuff?  even soda bottles cut into bits or Huh?

the mind boggles...

I have tried without success to melt legos.  Whatever you do, don't try to melt them in the microwave because they give off a seriously chemical smell which will give you a nasty headache.  I also tried a small propane torch.  Those little bricks are really made to last.
