How to make bowls out of vinyl-records. Put the oven on 100 degrees celsius, put the record on top of another bowl (which should be upside down) and keep it in there for about 5 minutes. Take it out, put it in another (or the same) bowl, and make the shape you want. Cool it down, and there you go! However, you should not keep food thats not wrapped in it.
A few people have asked how one goes about making record bowls.This is how I do it. Cheers! PS: Idiot that I am, I forgot to say how long you leave it in. Honestly, it’s about 5 minutes if that. Depends on how thick your vinyl is. Just check up on it now and then. It’s safe to touch as soon as it comes out, and it’ll firm up in a few minutes.
I did this as a kid at school as a gift for my Mom. We melted records, then we mod-podged squares of Christmas wrapping paper to them to make them little Chirstmas candy bowls. Now, I think it would be a terrible waste of an antique. I would never melt my vinyl!
