I forgot to also say that I also used the faceted beads from WalMart and they worked fine.

Thank you for the tips.

Here is my clearish/blue dot bowl and soon to be candy dish which is my first try with the pony beads.
I never used craftster upload but it made my picture a red X Sad


(almost done.. )
If I am melting pony beads at 350 how long do they take before melted? And can they be molded around an object when you take them out too?

Pony beads at 350 will take quite some time.  I've never really kept track, because I get impatient & crank up the heat.  It also depends how melted you would like your finished piece.  An hour perhaps?

lol... I got antsy and took them out, next time i'll use foil so I can get them out of the pan to shape it better, I took too long and they got stuck mid molding... good thing I got tons of beads..

Yeah, they smell pretty icky.  The smell of melting plastic.  With good ventilation and not being so curious so that you open the oven 12 times, it's really not a big deal though. Smiley

I just wanted to provide an update on what has now become PinkyK & Kappy Melted Bead Productions.

We have secured a blow torch, air purifier/cleaner/hepa filter machine specifically for the kitchen, and lots and lots of items to experiment with as forms and molds for the beads including me drinking WAAAAY too many caffeinated beverages so we can have beverage cans of different sizes.

All before noon today.

It is important to note that despite all of this, we have not yet, however, quit our day jobs and vowed to become full time bead melters.  Wink
