To make a vinyl record bowl you need: -Real bowl (One that can go in the oven.) This project is so easy and fun. After you take it out of the oven, just press the record down into any bowl or shape that you want. Hold your record in place inside the bowl until it hardens again.

I laid the printed design out on the wood and thought I could just trace the design on the paper with firm pressure and a little impression line would be left on the wood that I could just go back and trace.

Um, nope. Painted Feathers. I’ve always loved the idea of painting fake feathers, and with festival season underway it seemed like the perfect time to do it.

Painted Feathers
