Shown here are several figures I've done using mostly old sprue and other plastics to create. At the end is a link on how it's done.










This is a link to how to work with plastic

Everything looks really nice Anthony. Excellent work.

I have started another box of sprue to send you. It's been a long time since I sent some your way.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks,
Randy

Anthony, that is sheer genius how you achieve all that and it takes recycling to a whole new level. The figures I buy ready made never look as good once I finished them let alone me trying to use melted plastic.
I had a quick look at your link and its some brilliant and very clever creative work how you make them, and very intricate. I love the toaster oven ...... that is a total mad scientist at work scene lol.
keep up the great work ... I will look at a small piece of discarded sprue in the same way ever again !!
