    First Jango, and I'm trying to keep it at a relatively sane price. I picked up some sign post board from staples that works pretty much like sintra when you heat it up in an oven, and I've also got a trash bin. However I don't really know how to work the thicker plastic of the trash bin. Anybody with experience know how to go about turning trash into a nice well-shaped, steel-looking plate? Temperature, sanding, paints... etc?
