I made some..LOL!!! This is the latest thing on youtube- Making your own Enamel Dots, it really caught my interest!!! So I went to Michaels and bought a small bag of White PERLER BEADS (found in the kids art section). There's 1000 beads, so I had to "PLAY"..ha ha ha...I took some beads and melted them...OH!! SO PRETTY!!!!!!!! so then I took some more beads and using a "Pill Cutter" I cut some in half and melted them.....OH!! PRETTY PRETTY!!!! They both melt so nicely and are so SHINY!!!

That was ALOT of fun....very time consuming but fun
but wait...I need color...so I went to Michaels and picked up a bag of GLITTER Perler Beads.
OOPPSS!!! not so fun....I couldn't get the "whole" Perler Bead to melt no matter the temp or length of time...uuurrrgghh....SO.. I cut them in half....they melted but they aren't glittery and they shine but not as shiny as the white ones....(its a different kind of plastic too compared to the white ones)
I think I'll stay with the original Perler Beads they come out much nicer. No more special/fancy beads.
