The little lanterns are absolutely beautiful, and such pretty colours! They'd be fab on a Chinese New Year-themed set Cheesy Polymer clay paper dragons anyone?

I think the melted ones look especially amazing. I am desperate to try some of this stuff, but I think I had better wait till my flatmates are out before I blow up start cooking weird things in the microwave (they are used to weird things in the oven, I make stuff with polymer clay Cheesy).

I really like the idea behind this. I might have to go raid a charity shop (my parents would NEVER let me touch their precious vinyl... almost literally! The idea of doing this to it would give them a heart attack!).

What oven temperature do you use to heat the record, and for roughly how long?

I love the first set and all the spotty ones, they are so bright and cute and fun! The last set is really classy, like clear polished amber.

Well, I've used our home oven for shrink plastic, Fimo etc. often enough, and as yet no-one has died. Roll Eyes

I don't see why this would be an issue unless you maybe do something supremely stupid like put the plastic straight on the oven shelf so it melts and sticks and burns... and then you either a) clean the shelf or b) replace the shelf. These things don't usually produce fumes at all if used properly, and even then there's no reason it should do any permanent damage.

These things are designed to be used by kids and usually have a label saying "non-toxic" on them somewhere. I'd suggest that this was just a bit of panic-mongering, myself.

This is AMAZING. How have you woven the washers together? I'm a mailler too and I've been trying to figure it out from the pictures, but having just popped out of lurkdom I thought I'd actually ask...  Grin

The pendant itself is beautiful, so sparkly and utterly magical! I like the colours in the cord and how the gold bits bring out the gold in the pendant, but is there anything you can do about the bit of string around the top of the pendant - like use a bigger jump ring and put it straight through the light green loopy bit - or is that somehow holding the whole thing together? I just feel that it overwhelms the pendant a little, which is a shame as surely that's the bit you want to show off!

This is so cool, I had to come out of lurkdom just to say how cool it is.

I love it when someone takes an idea that sounds really daft and funny and actually makes it work as a piece of art.
