1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: HELP - Vinyl Record Flowers? on: September 12, 2010 01:33:45 PM
I find that records melted over a stainless steal metal bowl at 200* - 250* for a couple minutes works well. I have never tried to make flowers but as long as you keep the record warm it is pretty pliable..but i recommend gloves as you can burn your hand and leave prints on the record.

Curious to see how it turns out : ) I might have a new project to try!

you could always sell em:) I'm always looking for covers for albums that I have but don't have sleeves for.  The purses are awesome too..I've used my spare ones as wall art, notebook covers, cards, and a ton of other things:)

Oh my goodness I love your record clock. I think I have like 100 different records right now.  I'm going to find one to make a clock out of.  Congrats on going to the real USC:)   How did you get the edges of your bowl to look so cool?

You can spray a sealer on them. I use mine to eat popcorn out of.  I just make sure I wipe them off with a cloth to remove the dust and who knows what off of them.  I also have them in my room on my dresser to hold my keys. I'm currently working on making a lamp shade cover for one of my lamps.  You can find all kinds of things to do with them..One of my friends made a vase with his record..(I don't think it holds water yet though he's still experimenting..) He also made a candy dish for my mom to put on her desk in her classroom. 
I made a couple of different bowls and hung them on my wall they look really cool.   Grin

Depending on what kind of modge podge you used it should be a natural sealer..but you could also spray them with an acrylic spray, there's some kind my mom uses on her pots to make them water proof after she paints them, you can usually find it at walmart.

I just remembered if you go to the shoe section they have a spray that will do it..also there is a spray in the sporting goods department. We use it on our tents to keep them water proof when we go camping and it works wonderfully:) hope this helps;)
