My microwave makes water boil in 40 seconds. I put a cd in for 3 seconds and it didn't do anything. i put a cd in for 5 seconds and it lit up the room. I put ina cd for 7 seconds and it lit up the room and it had brown and black burnt bits. - I think it is just an experiment with your Microwave. My friend gave me a toaster oven for baking my cds outdoors. It will help not having my oven on in these hot okanagan summers.

Do you know what color those blank cd's will turn? Y'know..the kind that are just..silvery-colored and plain.. I don't have any kind of drill to use..but I'm wondering what just tossing a whole plain cd in will look like =D anyways..great idea!! The jewelry looks amazing xD

I have only used AOL cd's and CD-r's.
The AOL's and most commercially bought cd's are clear.
The CD-R's are the blue.
I think X-Box games are purple but I haven't found any yet to practise on.
I tossed a whole AOL cd in while the oven was cooling and the edges curled a little and the writting shows up like it has been embossed.
Before I got the dremel I used to drill holes in plastic things with a razor knife or a pointy pair of scissors.
You could also melt a hole in a cd with a large needle, a pair of pliers and a heat source. Stinky and painful - but fun.
I was thinking of adding glass or plastic beads to the clear cds to see what would happen. The glass ones wouldn't change of course, but the plastic ones might meld. I just haven't had time yet.

i tried making one tonight, i did one cd that skipped, it started sparking realyl quick... then i put a few more in just to see them spark... the first time i did it i ran away and screamed when it sparked but then they got amazing to watch.  so so so fun to watch. anyway, i used old burned cds becasue they come in every color i have blue, clear, purple, and orange. i havent strung them on a necklace yet so i have a chinese food tin filled with them.

I decided to try this out with an old scratched up cd-r and I did a few things differently. I nuked it for 15 seconds and then I put it in the oven for 5 minutes at 400. After that I cut out the shape I wanted and filled the edges and put it back in the oven for 5 minutes at 400. This is what came out. I wanted it to be in the shape of a guitar pic but it kind of messed up but I like it none the less.



Thanks for the inspiration.

For those of you who only used the oven and did not microwave the cds, do you have any pics? Is it still pretty? My husband will not be happy if I break our microwave.  Tongue
