Introduction: Artistic Bowls

Picture of Artistic Bowls

In this instructable I will show you how to make a bowl out of any cd. All you need for this is:

                             * a cd
                             * an oven
                             * protective gloves (I used snow gloves)


Step 1: Shape the CD

1) Put the cd in the oven at low heat.
2) Cook the cd until it is soft enough to shape. (usually about 2-4 min)
3) With the gloves, bend up four or five sides to make a bowl shape. The bowl will cool off very quickly so do this step fast. If it cools before you finish, heat it up for 2 minutes and do it again. 

Step 2: Finish

You just finished your artistic bowl. If you really are going to put stuff in it, you might want to glue the hole to a plate.

that doesnt help me at all...

if the cd was breakable before than try turning up the heat so it becomes more manuable. The process of shaping must then be done quickly because the cd cools fast.

what do you mean by "low heat"? I attempted this and the only thing i got was an extremely easily breakable cd that was otherwise unaltered.

lowest it can go

no, not that i know of, but the CD might stick to the foil a bit

Another way to shape it is to put it over a soup can.

good idea

Used to do the same thing with records... Before I fell in love withthe music.
