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!)
