Altered Vinyl LP

by Laura Thykeson
(Granbury, Texas)


I melted this vinyl lp in the oven, while it was draped over an upside down bundt cake pan. I had the oven on 200 degrees and watched it VERY closely to make sure it didn't get too melted or begin to drip. After I had removed it from the oven and let it cool, I sprayed the inside with silver acrylic paint, then decorated with multi-colored acrylic paints. Then, when all paint was dry, I sealed it with a clear acrylic spray sealer. It can now be used as a wall hanging, table art, a candy or chip dish or any number of things. It can be wiped clean with a sponge, but not washed in hot water or a dishwasher.

I have been making altered art for the last 20 years, and love recycling everyday items into works of art and beauty!

Laura, that looks incredible. How clever to recycle old LPs this way. Thank you so much for taking the time to show it to us and to tell us how you made it. It looks great!

Great Idea
by: Linda J

See, this is why I tell my husband I never throw things out or get rid of them. I can see lots of possibilities with this. Great idea!

Lol Linda! I never thought about it that way before! He he!

I'd love to see what you make with your LPs!
