how to make a bowl out of magazines in thirty seconds

a fun ecofriendly project that will help the earth and its creatures
 tough decisions. 30 sec magazine bowl... or scrape out a coconut..
Hah you eva tried to scrape outta coconut in 30 secs...? hahah!
Please bring the vid back!!
 Why remove video oh  whats the point ? 
cool idea. the instruction on the video went a little fast and a little unclear. good idea<br />
Can I find more instructions? Or is the video it?
Good use of the 30 seconds. How easy / expensive is it to get shellac these days? L
I think you can get Modge Podge for about six dollars at any craft store... That's shellac, right? ...
No, I don't believe Modge Podge is shellac. L
<p>Mod Podge is not shellac...but it could really work for this project...it's water-based, and they have an &quot;outdoor&quot; variety that's supposed to be water resistant. Apply in several thin coats...</p>
It was shellac specifically that I was interested in, as it's not that easy to find and rather old-fashioned.<br /><br />L<br />
just go to your neighborhood micheals (art supply store) and your looking at around 5-15 dollars
I'm not living in your geographical location but how much do you get for 5-15$? L
enough for allot of project it will probably last for about like 20 of the magazine bowls
For pure curiosity do you have any idea of how many insect-excretions it takes per bowl? L
no i dont sorry
Shellac(alcohol with the shellac flakes), not so common as it used to be, however... Varnish(linseed oil with the shellac flakes) is a suitable substitute. Is cheap, and available almost anywhere. Polyurethane and lacquer are, in every way I can think of, a better finish. Most home stores, any woodworking store, many hardware stores, will all cary them. Couple dollars for a gallon.
Thanks, it was shellac specifically that I was interested in (w/ref to the alternatives you mentioned) L
Wow!&nbsp;very creative and the music was a nice touch :D&nbsp;<br />
nice project! could you tell me what the music is? I really like that song
into the ocean Blue october
your very welcome
OOOOOOO its a thingy :O
Great instructable ;) I can't wait to try it. Are you going to do any written instructions or know where any are? One of my friends does not have a computer and wants to try this.
Neat idea, looks cool. You had me on board until your save-the-earth crap, though. Can't it just be a cool project, not a political statement?
Song please? Im not really familiar with it. Sorry for the off topicness.
That would be "Into The Ocean" by Blue October
Thanks a lot, will use this ;)
