SORRY FELLOW CRAFTSTERS...for not replying right away. I have been quite busy and have deprived you all of this tutorial you have been asking for.
OK. So I'll make a list of things you will need:
-a record (any size will do!)
-a cookie sheet
First, preheat the oven to 200-250 degress faranheit.
Second, place a bowl upside down onto the cookie sheet and the record over top the bottom of the bowl
Third, put it in the oven for 5-10 minutes
Fourth, take it out asap (you can mold it to your liking is you so choose)
also you can take a slighty larger bowl, preferrably one of the same shape, and press it over top to get a different shape.
Fifth, let it cool for a bit (about 10 minutes or so)
Sixth, take the acrylic paint and start painting! Don't get frustrated if it takes several coats of paint to cover up the black...it takes a little time =) Add your own fun little details to it once the base coats are done, if you so choose!
Seventh, once the paint is dried completely, I took varnish and coated the bowl twice to make it shiney!
