As a fellow pyro (even though I stick more to beads [http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p182/adriennevia/StS3BeadedBowl.jpg), the inversion goes as follows:
1.  Line cookie sheet/pizza pan/whatever with aluminum foil
2.  Arrange your victims on the foil and bake until melted.  Have a bowl at the ready - I usually use glass or ceramic, but metal works too.
3.  Take your melted victims out of the oven, and quickly quickly quickly place the bowl on top. The layers will be: pan, foil, victims, bowl.
4.  Invert this contraption (using pot holders!) so it's bowl, victims, foil, pan.  Remove the pan and push down on the foil so your victims take the shape of the bowl.

Does that make sense?

Oh those are incredibly awesome!

Thank you so much!! Smiley

These are cool, but the first thing I thought when I saw them was 'i hope she doesn't keep food in them!'. sorry there are 9 pages of comments and i didn't feel like going through all of them, so if someone already brought this up then feel free to ignore this post.

though they look very awesome.

Thanks!  I don't keep food in them, but I'm sure chips or popcorn would be fine.  They're all sealed with acrylic sealant.

I love the first picture of the army soldiers... they look like they're rising from the mass of green under them XD. Kinda creepy but in a very cool way!

Ha!!  I can totally see that.  Too funny! Cheesy

Wow, that is freaky... and awesome! Especially the dino bowl with all it's colours.

Thanks much!  The dino bowl is a BUNCH of colors!  I made one out of bugs (plastic ones, haha!) that is very similar and colorful, too.

These bowls are such fantastic fun! Not to mention they turned out great looking! But uhmmm...don't you have a wedding or something to be taking care of?  Tongue

Ha!  Thanks!  You would think, right? Cheesy  These were post-wedding crafts.  I, um, just don't post my projects as often as I'd like. Cheesy *hides in shame*

That's a great explanation, Grieney!!  I love the "victims" Cheesy Cheesy

peace, I don't have any pictures step-by-step of these, but like Grieney said, it's very similar to melting pony beads.  Here's a lamp I made.  Go to the second post and you can see the basic steps (same concept...foil, basic, transfer to "mold") https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100703.0  I used a pizza pan & an old lamp shade as my supplies with that one.

Thank you both, the explanations were perfect. I can't wait to try it out!!!

I have an idea for the fish thing that was talked about earlier..... How about melting clear blue pony beads alone first, then while they are still hot and wet stick the fish in?Huh? Now I just have to fine the right fish!!!

That works, but you have to do it super fast! I've done it with heart-shaped beads (http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p182/adriennevia/StS2HeartBowl.jpg), then stuck it back in the oven for 2-3 minutes.

That would be neat!  Yeah, you have to work fast. Cheesy  It's gooey & hot, but not TOO liquidy and man, that stuff cools quickly!

Thanks! Well, you got me started on my pyro phase, believe it or not!!  Grin  I think it started with bowls and then I saw your lamp shades etc via search results and the melting began.

Note: Don't melt clear beads too long, because they will get kind of brownish.

Fantastic concept. I am especially fond of the small army men bowl. The irregular rim is a standout design element. It reads to me visually as though some of the soldiers have not (yet) succumbed to the fate of their comrades. The juxtaposition of a potentially weighty meaning with a positively fun, pop presence makes for a killer (no pun intended) craft.
