Anyone who’s done any scale modeling, game modeling, or dungeon crafting is no doubt familiar with spruces, those ubiquitous frames that hold plastic model parts and are part of the injection molding process.
In this four-part video, game modeler, Jon of Miniature Hobbyist, shows close to 40 different things you can make from this plastic waste material, from doors, walls, and cobblestone streets to piles of treasure, tents, barricades, cages, and even tools for the shop, such as painting sticks and paint pot holders. In part 4 four, he shows how you can turn spruce material broken down in acetone into a goopy plastic material for casting, turning into pipes and thick cables, miniature bases, and more.
