Worbla’s Finest Art (called Worbla for short) has been taking the costume and crafting world by storm. From Grant Imahara of Mythbusters to the floor of San Diego Comic Con, Worbla is being used to make almost everything you can imagine.
Worbla is different from other thermoplastics. It’s thinner than Wonderflex and handles curves better than Sintra, and it’s non-toxic and doesn’t need special tools. You use hot air, water or steam to shape the plastic however you want. There’s no waste because your scraps can be conditioned and 100% re-blended. These leftovers can be molded to act just like putty, and many artists use Worbla like a form of clay.
Worbla is hard when cool and can be sanded without damage. One side of Worbla is the ‘glue’ side that means when heated, it can be attached to other layers of Worbla or other surfaces without needing additional glue. You can choose to work with multiple layers of Worbla right from the start of a project, or line thin parts later as you decide your needs.
Almost everything is possible with Worbla! Detailed surfaces and masks, armor and ornaments, replicas of blades or gems, as well as costume jewellery, figurines and all kinds of decorations.
Worbla's Finest Art sheet: Use hot air, water or steam (min 90°C) to bring this plastic to the shape you want to. The material is alterable by heat any time, solvent-free manufactured & to process. Conditioned oddments can be blended to 100%, so almost no waste at all incurs. These leftovers can be moulded just like putty or almond paste. It's hardening very fast, is manually grindable and because of the extra glue on the shiny side, it is very easy to attach the several layers. Hence you can decide to work with more layers right from the beginning or to line thin parts plus e.g. ornaments can be attached easily.
