Man, & I wanted to be the first one on this new board!

Anyway, I said something about this before, but since there's new board, I read Craftgrrl that what you do to make record bowls, you can do the same to C.D.s. I did two using the same glass bowls I use for the record bowls, but they didn't form as well as the records, plus I had them in the oven more than once. I think, next time I do this, I'll use something with a base of a smaller diameter (like a glass Folgers jar).

So this isn't completely text-only, I have one of the C.D. "bowls" (the other got thrown out)

haha.  that did turn out pretty crazy.  A smaller bowl should work better though.  I didn't even know you could melt cds like that.  Do they melt at about the same temp as records, or do they need a higher temp?

From what I read on that Craftgrrl post, 275* for about 5-10 minutes, but again I had two do it several times.

I tried to do that! Didnt work, and when I got it out the oven I realised that I'd put my fave dvd in the oven instead one of the millions of AOL cds I have lying around! :-(

oh, I've had great success with cd bowls!  I used a small glass bowl (we use them for ice cream, much smaller than a soup bowl) and stuck it and the cd in our toaster oven.  it only took about 5 minutes before they were nearly liquidy and fully conformed to the glass bowl.

the only time I tried it in the oven, it didn't work.  but then, that was a dorm oven, so chances are it might have not gotten hot enough (it was pretty old and run down).  I'd suggest a higher temp if you're going to use the oven.

I myself use a toaster oven & wasn't exactly sure if it would work like if it would a regular oven. Plus when I put the second bowl over the C.D., the C.D. seemed to have already hardened.
