I am in the midst of organizing my home office desk. This leads to me think … I should make a pencil holder out of a vinyl album (the perfect solution or lame distraction? I am not exactly sure!). Step one: review my albums that haven’t made the cut for the album wallpaper project to determine which one to melt!
I am pre-heating the oven to 200 degrees and setting the rack to a lower position. I removed a rack to make room for my tall glass (think glass drinking glass)and album. I arranged the album on a glass placing the inner red song list at the center of the glass base. I want the album to melt around the shape of the glass. If you want to make a bowl you can arrange the album on top of a bowl and it will melt around the bowl creating a wider angle.
Couple Safety Comments:
I recommend you watch your oven closely because each vinyl starts to “flop” at a different times. It usually takes 4-8 minutes and the album is ready to be removed from the oven.
The vinyl is obviously hot when you pull it out of the oven so of course use caution.
I wouldn’t recommend using record bowls to serve food. Record vinyl is not a food-grade material and may leach harmful chemicals.
