i wonder if you could get a cookie sheet or something like it and then fill things like cookie cutters with the beads to make different shapes.  i don't know if the plastic would end upup underneath the cutters, though.

i'll have to think of some other metal things the beads could go in.

thank you.

to do the napkin ring I used a mini cupcake pan and placed the beads around the rim at the bottom and didn't fill in the center, I did a double stack of the beads and then as carefully as you can place it in the oven to not stir the beads (make them fall).  You could probably make it thicker if you can keep the beads from avalanching! like a mini donut hole cutter in the cupcake pan then stack around it

I also used the shallow holes of a bunt cake pan, a sunflower and a rose petal shaped one to make egg/oval/ shaped bowls...

I'm still emptying my cabinets for ideas..

oooo also... I didn't think about doing this or know if it can be done... But while the beads are still melting can you shape to bottom with an object to fill the bottom if you couldn't get the beads to close us all the holes?

i did a bit of melting with some plastic rhinestones inset in sculpy necklaces, and the way they melted was really neat.  i've been toying with the idea of adding them to the beads before baking to try and fill up the holes, but i haven't gotten around to it yet.

also, walmart sells, two sizes of these beads, and i've found that the smaller size leave larger trails, spikes, and are easier when it comes to closing up the holes since they have less mass and melt quicker.

well I ran out of beads so I am taking a trip to WM tomorrow..

If I plate reads "oven safe" on the bottom does that mean I can really stick it in the oven? I'm interested in making a plate still.

I used the end of a ball point pen(it was the only thing next me and the oven!) to mash the pointy spears back down a few minutes before taking it out.. it takes a lot of pressure to get it to stay otherwise it goes back.. I think even getting the beads on their side on the top instead of the hole pointed up will help reduce the pointy.Huh. I like it but I am afraid someone might get poked and not like it.

I love anything that even remotely resembles stained glass (big personal weakness) and all of your bowls and such are awesome!

The smell thing does worry me though. Plastics are pretty renowned for releasing toxic fumes when heated Undecided
