Step Three: Find an old* cookie sheet and an oven safe bowl that is the depth you desire your LP bowl to be. Place the bowl open side down on the center of the cookie sheet then place your record on the center of the bowl, creating a three item stack. Be sure to keep your LP centered or you will have a lopsided bowl.
*Although no vinyl should stick to the pan it's best to use one you wouldn't be upset if it did get vinyl residue on it.
Step Five: When the LP is close to the shape you want put on your oven mitts and pull out your LP. The LP will still be pliable so work with the edges so that the record maintains its circular shape. Be careful to not burn yourself and remember if you don't like the shape you and just put the record back in the oven and reshape.
