How much do I love the 21st century?

See this plastic plant pot?
I made it. Not using a 3D printer, but with my own two hands and some Plastimake supplied by a workmate.

It's a bit rough but it was my first try at using this fabulous modelling compound which you soften with hot water then mould into shape before letting air dry*.

Our workplace art group is playing with it more on Thursday. I'l be sure to show you what other miniature uses I think up for it...

(*Even better, if you're not happy with the end result, just dunk it back into the hot water and use again for something else!)

Looks great! I'd never have guessed that pot could look so impressive.

Dagnabbit...someone gave me a pack of that stuff ages ago and I didn't have the sense to use it in miniature. Cool vase =0)

Very cool. Looking forward to what you do with it next.

Very Cool! I used something like that a couple of years ago to make fangs for a Halloween costume.

This century has developed so many things that one cannot even imagine and as a result the world is at a great growth.
