Fun With Old Ink Cartridges

 |  |  |  |  |  |  March 20, 2011


Got some leftover inkjet cartridges lying around? You could just send them back to the factory so they can be recycled – er, cleaned out, refilled and then sold to some other sucker for way too much money – or, you could make some lamps out of them – or, you could do this:

Artist Faith Pearson took a bunch of empty cartridges and turned them into fun miniature versions of movie scenes and models.

I think the Starship Enterprise is the best one, because the entire thing is made up out of cartridges. For all the others, the carts really just serve as scenes for the toy figures to hang out in. Still, one with the theater and all the action heroes is pretty cool, and certainly a much better use for leftover ink cartridges than throwing them in the trash.
