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.
Why? It 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 it like a form of clay. (Check out these dragons!)
Worbla is hard when cool and can be sanded without damage. One side 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 right from the start of a project, or line thin parts later as you decide your needs.
