Worbla’s Finest Art (called Worbla for short) has been taking
the costume and crafting world by storm.
Worbla plastics are different from other thermoplastics.
They’re thinner than Wonderflex and handle curves better than
Sintra, and Worbla products are non-toxic and don’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’s Finest and
Black like a form of clay. (Check out these dragons!)
Worbla’s Finest Art and Worbla Black are 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 of Worbla right from the
start of a project, or line thin areas later as you decide your
Worbla’s TranspArt is a clear thermoplastic that can be
worked and shaped to maintain the full transparency, or blended
to a semi-opaque crystal finish. Glue is suggested for joining
pieces together, and TranspArt can be tinted, painted and dyed
an array of colors.
