    I love doing this. Thanks for the framing idea. I was thinking of hanging mine by strings and mounting them somewhere.

    How long do you microwave them for?

  4. John Baylies says:

    You microwave them for about 10 seconds, until the crackling begins to slow and you can smell them burning. (BTW this is about CDs)

    have you ever split the two layers of the cd apart? the foil will have different swirls and such… much cleaner looking then the blocks left by the microwave

    Most people dont know that cds are made of two layers of plastic with that metallic stuff between. You can (very carefully) split the cd from the outer edge and make some awesome designs. Dont have any pictures but i made a couple “sun on the horizon over the water” type designs
