I am not sure of everywhere that do them but I know Nailorder do little pots. The only thing to look out for is the type of plastic they are made from, you dont want to melt them. If they are too small then you will not get enough depth to make your beads without touching the sides of the dish.

The restrictions in the OSNS only apply to liquid and powder purchases so you will be fine buying the pots.

Cheers
