Make a Cool Bowl from a Record
This is a tutorial on how to use an old vinyl record to create a cool, artsy bowl. If you can find one of the records that were manufactured in brightly colored vinyl, they work really great for this project...but black is cool, too.
Get some cheap and useless vinyl records. Thrift stores are the perfect place to find them....and garage sales.
Preheat your oven to somewhere beween 200-250 degrees Fahrenheit (100-150 Celsius).
Place your record on the center of an upside down pot or metal bowl. Put this onto a baking sheet.
Put this into the oven. Keep a close watch because each vinyl starts to "flop" at a different time. It usually takes 4-8 minutes.
Take the whole thing out of the oven (wearing oven mitts, of course) once you notice some real "flopping" going on.
Put your record into another bowl and shape it around that, or you can hand mold it. Sometimes, you might like the way it looks right as you take it out of the oven; if so, skip the molding.
Let it cool for 10-15 minutes.
Flip it over.
Be cooler than your friends who don't have their very own record bowls!
AND....screen print your own...tee, potholder.....whatever you want with this very quick and easy method that anyone can do!
