Record bowls are so fun and so easy.  They're good for me too because its not that likely that you'll get burned.
Here is one i made.
I like finding ones that have fitting sayings on them and then giving them as presents to specific people

To reply #13 about what to use to wipe it clean:

MOD PODGE gloss-lustre by PLAID (i'm sure everyone here knows mod podge by heart)

I used it. It worked marvelously.  I made thick wire stems, felt leaves, and tiny (45s) record flowers and put them in a vase.  I also did what you did and put plastic liners in them and use them for my pots.  Now my clay pots are "hip."

after 5 minutes in the oven, you flip the record [which will be flopping down over the first bowl] into a larger bowl and start manipulating it into your desired shape. if you're not happy with it, simply put it back in the oven for a little while longer. its that easy!

don't even flip it over! just take the bigger bowl upside-down and smush it on top of the record that is flopping over the smaller bowl!
you know those mixing bowls you have? metal or glass, they all nest in eachother because they decrease in size... go get two of the bowls that fit eachother and use them

I always leave it laying over the bowl and use my hands to shape it how i want...it is a little hot but it holds usually once you put it there...i just like the waves to be somewhat even and it usually melts into 4 i like 6 so just a few pinches and it works great!

I really want to try this and i have hundreds of records (not exaggerating). My dad would kill me if I melted one though. I guess I'm going to Goodwill soon!

I thought I was quite experienced with record bowl making until i melted one yesterday.  It was a reshaping, one i had already made and well it really really melted.  I guess I left it in a little too long especially considering i usually heat them at 400 degrees instead of 200.  Anyways it actually turned out pretty cool. everything seeped together and it looks more like a real bowl, i know there was convo about those ones that are sold commercially and it actually turned out a little like those.  I will post a pick later if i can.  If anyone is interested its kind of a riskay process I guess i you wanted to do it purposely, you'd have to be willing to possible loos your "shaping" bowl as well as the record.  I think now though i would do it again.  After it totally melted "by melted i mean dripping kind of" i put it in the fridge and it hardeded.  I was acutally afraid i was going to loose the record and the bowl but all is good now!
