I'm sorry to hear about your uncle.  Sad He'll love this though..not only is it incredible work, but it's thoughtful and genuine.

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.  Sad

OK. So I'll make a list of things you will need:

-a record (any size will do!)
-a cookie sheet
-oven-safe bowl(s)
-acrylic paint
-paint brushes

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!

So I bought this belt at Vinny's and realized it was too small and decided to make it for my sis.  All I did was splatter different colored Tulip brand paints on it and it came out lookin nifty and didn't take but 5-10 minutes.

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / sleezy n cheesey on: January 10, 2008 05:16:38 PM
I got inspiration for my glasses case with some wallets I saw posted on here. I love the sleezy and cheesey, so it works.

Go take a look see! 

It was super easy...
1. I went to my local thrift store and picked up a romance novel and a glasses case
2. Cut the front or back (which ever you prefer) of the novel to fit the form of the case.
3. Take Elmer's glue and brush it on the back of the cut out with a sponge brush or whatever you so choose and stick it on the front of the case.  To ensure it sticks well, press down on all sides. I did it for a count of 5. 
4. When it has dried, again, take a spongebrush and use varnish over it to give it a nice finish and so it won't ruin as easy.
5. Ta-da! You're done!
