Materials List

  • Old long-play vinyl record
  • Orange embossed satin fabric
  • Two napkins with different-sized sunflowers printed on them
  • Mod Podge
  • Kaisercraft bronze ink glimmer mist
  • Quick-drying matte spray varnish
  • 25mm thick paintbrush
  • Thin paintbrush
  • Standard scissors
  • Hairdryer
  • Small plastic bowl
  • Old newspaper to protect the working area

Instructions

  1. Cut a piece of fabric that is slightly bigger than the vinyl record.

  2. Paint a thick layer of Mod Podge over the one side of the vinyl record. Note: Keep the edges and the back of the record clean.

  3. Carefully place the fabric onto the record, the right side of the fabric facing upwards.

  4. Paint a layer of Mod Podge over the top of the fabric too. Then, working from the middle of the record, and from the inside towards the outside, rub out all the air bubbles from the back of the fabric. Check that the fabric sticks properly to the edges of the record.

  5. Dry the record thoroughly with the hairdryer. Note: Use the COOL AIR option of your dryer.

  6. Cut off any fabric that protrudes beyond the edges of the record.

  7. Cut out different-sized sunflowers from the napkins.

  8. Remove the bottom napkin layers from the first sunflower. Position the sunflower in the middle of the record and paint a substantial amount of Mod Podge over the top of the sunflower so that it will stick to the record. As the napkin can stretch or tear easily, it is best to start painting from the middle of the sunflower towards the sides and work in small triangles. The Mod Podge must only be applied to the top and must not run underneath the napkin. Use your finger to lightly rub out any air bubbles.

  9. Repeat step 8 with the other sunflowers.

  10. Use the hairdryer to dry the sunflowers, again using the cool air option.

  11. Paint two more layers of Mod Podge over the fabric on the record. Change the direction in which the Mod Podge is applied from horizontal to vertical. Remember that after every layter of Mod Podge, the record must first be dried thoroughly with the hairdryer.

  12. Spray some of the ink mist into the plastic bowl and use a paintbrush to apply ink mist to certain areas.

  13. To protect the fabric and allow easy cleaning, apply one coat of the quick-drying spray varnish and allow to dry thoroughly.

  14. Repeat steps 1-13 to make more charger plates in the same way.
