ever use fantastic plastic

Posted in Custom Workstation

works pretty good for casting in a cheap way
I took some polymer clay and pressed in a gun to make the cast and then poured the fantastic plastic in it and it turned out awesome
I got a bunch of it for .39 cents at a thrift store good way to make some custom parts. all you do is dump some of if in the almost boiling water and it mends togehter to be sculpedt with hand or another was hents the clay mold you should check it out

There's another very similar plastic molding compound out there called Friendly Plastic, functions pretty much the exact same way.

bit of polymer clay and I pressed the gun into it then removed the gun poured the plastic in it let it cool cut off the excess and then did the other side
boom perfect cast and it didn't cost me any thing plus the clay can be used over again and if I want I can melt the gun back down and use the plastic again too

I looked it up. The company that made it is still in business but they don't make fantastic plastic anymore.

I'm not sure how big they were. This was in ohio. It was the king of old school thrift stores in the 80s when I was little back when it could still be called a nickel and dime store. They turned into mainly craft store in the 90s which is probably why those bottles have the labels.

its just these little plastic beads I got them at a thrift store for .39 cents each so I said screw it ill give it a try and I must say its much cheaper than doing the standard way of casting you should look into it

I've never heard of it. I'd love to get get some, I'm tired of paying 40.00 for 2 part RTV. At least this way I'd only have to pay 40 for the 2 part resin
