glass, metal, ceramic, pyrex, terrra cotta . . . anything not plastic.

you can use mixing bowls, flower pots, all sorts of things.

i use two pyrex mixing bowls that fit into each other to make mine

I know another way of doing this so that you dont have to burn yourself on the oven and can create a better shape!

1. Boil some water, in a kettle! duh!

2. Place a heat resistant bowl in the sink. Doesnt have to be a bowl as such, just as long as it will give the record a 'bowl' shape!

3. Now place (balance) the record on the bowl that you have placed in the sink.

4. Pour the boiling water from the kettle on the record and it will start to flop into shape. Immediatly after doing this, using a tea towel to protect your hands, manipulate to the shape you like!

I don't have a picture at the moment, but I use my vinyl bowls to hold all the loose change I accumulate. It's the perfect antidote for people who collect pocket change like they collect pocket lint.

I've been wanting to try this out for a while but unfortunetly after attempting to make new crayons by melting down old ones and accidently burning them my parents banned me from using  kitchen appliances for craft related projects.  Imagine a 20 year old not being able to melt random objects in an oven.  That just seems silly to me especially since they always ask me to make dinner for them.  Guess I'll just have to wait until I get my own place.

Use my technique with the boiling water and the sink. The platsic wont melt so its runs, it will just become soft and moldable (if thats a word)
