"Bill Making Stuff" shares ideas on how to be creative

In this video, Bill Mullaney of the YouTube crafting channel, Bill Making Stuff, offers up some useful tips on what he does when he wants to spark and sustain his creativity. He talks about taking things apart, keeping a sketchbook, going shopping in a dollar store (or elsewhere) to get ideas, and more. While these ideas apply mainly to the type of kit- and trashbash modeling that he does, they can also apply more widely.

In the course of the video, he also offers up a little "hack" for making your own inks using isopropyl alcohol and cut-up cheap markers and how to doodle with physical objects.
