Wax Warpin’ Weekend
About a year ago, Kyle from Lost Weekend Records in Clintonville was kind enough to find me a copy of Future by The Seeds only to discover the vinyl was badly warped. He gave it to me for free and tracked down another copy in excellent condition. So, what to do with the wobbly wax? How about melt and mold it into a Christmas gift? Here’s a quick and fun way to put scratched, warped, or unwanted vinyl to good use.
What you’ll need:
- Vinyl Record
- Cookie Sheet
- Glass bowl
1.) Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
2.) Place overturned glass bowl onto cookie sheet, balance vinyl on top of bowl, place in oven.
3.) Keep a close eye on the vinyl. After approximately 6-10 minutes, the record should start to collapse over the bowl.
4.) Take out of oven. Mold the record into desired shape. Move fast! The vinyl cools in about 10 seconds.
Voilà! Happy wax warpin’ y’all.
