Wow! Wire, melted beads, crayons and balloons...  Cheesy

I love the wire tree and the colors on the beads & crayon/balloon ones are great. Those melted beads do look sort of edible. I'm going to have to try embossing on metal sometime...

definitely got lots of ideas for other non-paper ATCs  Cheesy I hope we'll do another round, I had some plans for some different backgrounds that I didn't use this time around, and these are giving more ideas for embellishing them ....

and I'm waiting to see what Lmcbride does with resin and ricecakes  Wink

I'm just glad the melted crayons and balloons got there in one piece. i was really nervous that the postpeople would break it.  Roll Eyes

The gallery is amazing so far! I would never have thought of some of these materials in a million years. Cheesy

I received a really cool ATC from kantha_stich yesterday!

It's a pear made of layered fabric.  The interior pear shape and the leaf are actually stiched around.  I could never control my sewing machine well enough to handle small curves like that!

It's a really neat ATC, kantha_stich.  THANKS!

Gah!  Melted balloons!  You crazy person, Hardcoremothball! Cheesy  I can't stop laughing!  I like how your mind works.  I just picture you looking around the house saying "Hmmmm, what can I melt next....?" and how cool to have an outdoor oven or whatever for your melting activities.  Sounds like so much fun!

For those of us who don't have an outdoor oven, I wonder how a square metal pan/foil mold on a grill rack (charcoal or gas) would work...?  No fine temperature control like you need for shrinkies, but would surely get the job done on crayon melting and maybe with beads?

I still love the melted dinosaurs and army men bowls I saw here a while back but I've been absolutely forbidden to use the food oven for crafting...!

for the melting crayons i went to the dollar store and bought some cheap glasses and used them like a double boiler. i threw them away when i was done with them. no fumes for that one.
i'm lucky that my parents own and rent out cottages to tourists(we live on an island with a beach so we get loads of them). i use the ovens in the cottages when theyre not rented out. but i'm sure you could melt beads on a grill...lay a cookie sheet across it so theres a flat bottom and melt away. i would just keep a closer eye on it since its not really a regulated temp. just to be careful not to burn anything...
