Hey everyone, this was my very first attempt at doing a record bowl.  I loved it!  Here is the tutorial I used :

I was waiting the longest time to get around to doing my record bowls.  Finally the school fundraiser came along and they wanted crafted items for one of their stalls.  This was the perfect time to bid farewell to my old LP collection and see it do some good.

The first picture is the whole collection.  For some of them I glued circles of felt to the underside for a smooth finish, but mostly I left them plain so that folks could ponder which groovy records had been sacrificed for this endeavour.
Some of them I squeezed together as they came out of the oven to create pencil holders:
.  I found this worked best using two LPs at a time, as it gives a heavier, more stable result.
And one of them I really squeezed up tight to make this ruffled edge.

But the most exciting piece was the one using 5 LPs.  The inside LP squeezed up nice and tight while the outer ones fell into an attractive wave-form.  What do you reckon?

I owe Craftster big-time for this inspiration.  For the school fete I made little tags with the heading "2 funky 4 u?" and attached them with prices ($2 each and $6 for the big boy).

By the way, instead of using a bowl or baking pan I used a "nut roll tin" which is like an elongated skinny cake pan with lids at both ends.  It helps your record bowls fall into a really good shape I think.

Let's hope they make a few $ for the kids school.

ScrappinFool, I like your record bowls! Did you use something to cover the bottoms? Those would make great candy bowls.



j_en, great idea for pencil holders! I hope your school made lotsa dough from those!

J_en, your pencil holder knocked my socks off!  I'm going to have to give that a try.  Did your creations sell well?
Yep - all of them sold on the day - I was pleased.

I just went to Goodwill yesterday, and ALAS!!! I saw them there on the counter by the books! RECORDS!!! I have finally decided to do these bowls. I told my mom I would do it when no one else was home in case it smelled or something. (From what I hear, it doesn't.) So, since I'm home alone today, I will definitely keep myself busy with this AMAZING project!!!

Hello again. I did a large record and two small ones (I can't remember what they're called for the life of me!). They are so awesome! I can't wait to buy some more and do more melting!!!

Ooooooo.

I want to do this.  My only concern is the fumes.  As I've been doing melted bead bowls and the like.... I can't take that smell much anymore.

Is there any kind of oder given off with cooking records?

I also wonder if you could paint these after they've been in the oven.
