Pony Bead Platters and Cake Plates
Assorted Pony Beads
Non-stick cooking spray
Oven safe pans or bowls
If a base is desired-
Candle holders, shot glasses, drinking glasses, mason jars…
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Turn exhaust fan on.
Spray desired pan or bowl with non-stick spray
Pour in a small amount of pony beads. Pat down beads to create an even layer of beads. Add more as needed.
If desired, bring beads up the side. The non-stick spray will help the beads to adhere.
Place in preheated oven to melt beads. Heat beads for 40-50 minutes, depending on the size of the project. I recommend turning your oven light on to watch the beads melt. Your project is done when you can no longer see the holes, and they are fused together and are shiny. The surface will be slightly bumpy, this is all right!
Remove project from oven and let cool. Remove art from bowl or pan. Thoroughly wash with a grease cutting soap such as Dawn dish liquid.
To create a cake plate, attach a candle holder or glass to bottom using E-6000. Let dry before using.
