I’ve seen a post about Instamorph before but I never had a reason to use them. But I finally did and I decided to try this out.
Instamorph is little plastic pellets. You put as many as you need into hot water (60°C / 140°F), and they sort of stick together and melt into a moldable ball. So you take it out of the water with a fork or spoon or whatever you need, and start molding it. You can let it sit and harden in room temperature, or put it in cold water for a quicker harden.
Warning : Since they’re so many pellets that stick together, hot water gets stuck in little pockets they make, so as you mold it, spots will be exposed and hot water will come out. It’s not the end of the world hot, but it’s just a warning!
Anyway, they’re super cool because you can make anything super easy. I made a Yoko hair clip and I was able to use scissors to cut the point end of her skull while it was still soft. It was super easy and came out cool!!
Besides that, once it cools, it’s light weight and durable. You don’t really have to worry about anything getting too heavy or breaking.
You can also paint it! They have pigment packs where you can add color straight into the pellets, but if you just want to get a jar and paint whatever you need, no problem!
I bought mine on Amazon, but they do have a website too : Instamorph
