I just ran across this site while looking for info for another thread.

TAP Plastics

There is so much potential here for prop building that I wanted to share the info.

They have tons of great how-to videos, as well. They post on their website in both Windows Media and Apple QuickTime, as well as on YouTube.

Here's some examples—

How to make a simple Silicone Mold Part 1

How to build a Mold Box

How to cut Plastic Sheet

How to bend Plastic

Cast embedments in Clear Resin

How to use Expanding Foam


Cool stuff.

Hah, you might be jealous, but I live around the corner from one of their retail stores. I have yet to use them for prop building but I probably will this year... they always have a scrap bin thats fun to look through [now if I could only find a metal shop that had the same....]

You won't metal shops recycle, even the chips from cutting add up so fast they collect and send them to metal recycling.

Just came across these "promos" on the company's website. Apparently, they are already helping clients with Halloween and sci-fi requests:
