My scrap acrylic haul

#1

Hello. I mostly lurk around here but I picked up some cast acrylic cut offs from my local plastics supplier today and I thought I’d share.

5+ lbs cost $10 and they had lots more. Mostly clear, but some black and white and a little piece of orange, too. I’ll go back again when I have more time to dig around.

With this in addition to the six 42"x48" sheets of bronze extruded I got off of Craigslist for $10 each, I think I might have enough to last through my first week of planned projects when my 'forge finally arrives!

Looks like I’m going to have to start poking around the local suppliers trash bins…er… I mean scrap bins. I know some of the local sign makers throw away tons of scrap, didn’t think about going to the suppliers for cutoffs and seconds.
