Here’s a quick and easy method for making some simple plastic (ruidmentary casein) in the convenience of your own home, and all for less than ten dollars.

A lump of plastic

I originally created this as an Instructable a while ago. Apparently, it caught on, and was picked up as a featured Instructable. It was also asked to be a part of Make:TV, but I couldn’t pull together the resources to submit a video. I also had an email in 2012 regarding the possible inclusion of it in an Instructables book. I don’t know why, but it’s weirdly popular.

The process was derived from something I remember doing as a child, but it’s also featured in Cy Timony’s Sneaky Uses for Everyday Things. I highly recommend grabbing a copy of it, if you can. Without further ado, here’s the cut and pasted copy of my Instructable (pictures coming soon). You may also view the original instructable.
