Overview

Among the long list of hobbies enjoyed the world over, working with plastic may sound a bit unusual. However, upon closer examination, the hobby of working with plastic (often referred to as the plastic hobby) has an enthusiastic following of people from many walks of life.

As a means of recreation, plastic crafts are enjoyed as much by the beginner with a few simple hand tools as by the skilled mechanic with an elaborately equipped shop. Many useful and attractive plastic craft articles may be made entirely by hand. In fact, building with plastic and creating something entirely made from plastic is not all that unusual after all!

The widespread use of plastics in home shops started during World War II. Over two million members of the air forces and tens of thousands of civilian workers in aircraft plants became acquainted with plastic bomber noses, gun turrets, canopies and other parts of the plane. Many of these people saw in this plastic an intriguing and highly valuable material for home crafts.

Recommended projects for the beginner are those requiring no machine processes, no cementing and no intricate forming operations. Rings, pendants, brooches, bracelets and earrings are favorite items. Photograph frames, lamps, and trinket boxes are also popular.
