I did a trade over on getcrafty.com and got two beautiful red records. One even says "Twilight on the trail" which is so cool because I love to hike! The normal one is the Sound of Music soundtrack for a friend.

Warning on colored records-they were taking a long time to melt so I cranked the oven up to 235 degrees and left one in for longer than normal. I go to take it out and the ends are MELTED to the cookie sheet. What a mess. I pried it up and managed to give it a good shape. But it took me a good half hour with a lighter "spot melting" the charred parts on the edge. I'm sticking to that 225 temp from now on.

wow! they are VERY cool! i tend to preheat the oven, so they melt VERY quickly (about 30-60 seconds) I made one to put my friends birthday pressie in, she just text me to say how funky it is and how much she loves it!! I still havent been able to find any coloured records though! I want a pink bowl!!!

I've been making record bowls for years now, but how the heck did they do this ?! http://www.uncommongoods.com/item/item.jhtml;$sessionid$GWFB1LIAAADUXQFIAMGAOOWAVABQ0FYC?catId=3&catId=3&subCatId=54&itemId=11428

I used E6000 to glue one of those glass-marble-pictures over the hole, and then sealed it with polyurethane varnish.  Looks pretty good to me.

this won't completely seal the bowls, but if you just want to make a large hole smaller, you could use one of those plastic clip-in doohickeys expressly designed for that purpose. the thingies you put in 45s. anybody? help me out here.

if you set it on a non-stick surface, you could probably fill the hole with tacky glue and then when it dries, color it with a permanent marker.

ookpik, were they called adapters?  I bet some could be found at Goodwill still faithfully clinging to thier 45's.

I saw them make those into wall sconces on Trading Spaces once and they melted them over coffee tins, which made for a nice shape. Smiley  Just an idea...

hey, during my recent record bowl making binge, my mother did some research on the whole process just to make sure it was safe because of the fumes and stuff it created. she discovered that the fumes that heating/melting the vinyl makes is EXTREMELY dangerous and can dramatically increase the chance of cancer in humans (i dont know about your little animal friends, tho)... this discovery extremely dissapointed me... but i figure since it's so hot outside, i can just put them under the sun for awhile.. i havent tried it yet, because i've been busy, but maybe that would be a safer way to cook these buggers.
