I'm continuing on with my January challenge of making some projects that have been on my Pinterest boards for awhile. I have been itching to make this project for a long timeand I don't know why it took me so long to try it because it was very simple. Is it unusual to turn a Tom Jones record album into a bowl? Well, yes, but I did it anyway!
All you do is this: Get the record. Turn on the oven to 200 degrees. Place the record on an upside down bowl on a cookie sheet. Then place in the oven for 10 minutes until it gets soft and droops. I had the oven light on so I could see it start to droop. Then take it out and immediately place it in another bowl to shape it while it is soft. A tutorial with photos can be found here.
For anyone who knows me, I am crazy over Tom Jones and have been since I was 14 years old. I remember lying on the living room floor in front of the huge stereo console listening to his sexy songs. So when I found this idea on Pinterest, my heart went pitty-pat at the thought of turning his albums into bowls. LOL
So I made another bowl out of the "What's New Pussycat?" album. These will make great conversation pieces when we entertain at our bar downstairs. Many of our friends know how much he appeals to me.
