I haven't tried varnish, though I thought about that too, or maybe some glossy mod modge. And the smell is not that bad if your ok with the smell of melted plastic  Smiley

Did you use a rag or anything to handle the record?  I am scared to do this project bc I don't want to burn my hands!!

Also..I noticed a big red bowl thing in the oven...is that on top of the record, or did you just put it in there on a cookie sheet or something?

The record is on top of the red bowl and all that is on top of a cookie pan. The bowl help the sides of the record come down while it's in the oven.

And the record was pretty harmless when I took it out of the oven. It actually cools down quite fast, which is why my first try didn't turn out so good.

This was the easiest project for me ever! I don't know why it took me so long to get around to it.

I basically used the instruction here.

I started with this Tifanny record that I got at the Goodwill for one dollar

I preheated the oven at 225 degrees and I set the whole thing in the there for five minutes.

Then, when it was melted, I put the whole thing in another bowl and gave it some shape, this was the fun part!

And viola! I'd like to lie and say that I got it right the first time, but I didn't.

I didn't like my first results so I put the whole thing in the oven and started over, no biggie.

I've made up my mind, these bowls are too easy and inexpensive to make. They will definately be stuffed with goodies under the christmas tree this year for my friends!
