This is by far some of the best CD art I've seen! Most people just leave it bent in funky shapes and call it good - you've taken it to the next level. Great stuff!

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

That is so amazing! These are some of the most beautiful pendants I have ever seen! I am definitely going to try making some, even though they'll never turn as pretty as yours! Did you put them in a pan or something? Did you melt them in a high temperature? Do they shrink when you bake them? /annoying questions

Personal swap? Yes please!

Thanks Smiley

Umm I turned the main oven on full heat which is about 230 degrees celcius, sorry I don't know what that is in faernheight. Let it heat up. Some of the CDs I put in the microwave for a few seconds to give teh crinkly effect on the silver ones. It's kind of bad for teh microwave though. Then I cut the CDs up and put them in the oven on a metal tray, I used some tin foil too, for a few miniutes. Not too long or you'll get too many little bubbles. They don't shrink, but they do give off some fumes if you do it for too long. One time I melted practically all the psre CDs in the house, I had to have all the windows open and the extractor fan on, but it's worth it. and a small batch shouldn't produce many fumes.

Very interesting. Cheaper than fused glass. And easier.

The minute I finished looking at the pictures my eyes began darting around the desk for a CD I could destroy/beautify.

:wonders: If I scratched one up (intentionally, in a cool way) ... would it have a cool effect when melted? Ever tried it?
