HOW TO MAKE BOWLS FROM VINYL RECORDS……

Some of you have asked how I made the record-bowls, so I will try and explain how you do it.

1. Place a baking sheet on the bottom shelf of the oven.

2. Put the oven-temperature on 100*-125* Celsius.

3. Take a glass salad bowl, a flower vase or a flower pot and place the record on it. You can put it over the opening, or turn the bowl upside down and place the middle of the record over the bottom.

4. Place the bowl in the oven. Then be sure to watch it all the time. If the record is placed over the opening of the bowl, you can make the flower-bowl. When the record starts to melt you take two salad spoons and start pushing the melting record into the bowl. You need to try more than one time, close the oven and let the record melt a little more.

5. When the record is melted all the way into the bowl, you take the glass bowl out of the oven, and then quickly arrange the folds in the record, if you are not all pleased with how they are. It’s warm but you can touch it. Take it out of the bowl and put it to cool. We placed them in the refrigerator so they cooled faster.

6. If you put the record over the bottom of the bowl, vase or flowerpot, the record will melt down the sides, giving you the chance to make squares, triangles or starfish.

7. You might practice with a few records until you get the hang of it, but then it is great fun to do ;)

Enjoy♥

Can I just say how horrified I was when I saw this? You are very talented and this is a wonderful idea for use of records you don't want... but I am still so in love with my vinyl after all these years, I can't help but look on in utter mortification! ;-)

LOL Sorry I didn´t mean to scare you.. I do love old records too, but I don´t have a record player, so all the records are just lying in the bacement. This way I can have some use of them.
