How to Make Your Own Worbla





Introduction: How to Make Your Own Worbla

Hey Cosplayers, in todays apprenticeship on Forging with Thermoplastics, I'll be teaching you how to make your very own Worbla! No more Paying an arm and a leg, this stuff is even better than worbla, I call it PolyArmor!

Step 1: Watch the Video


Begin this Tutorial by watching the video!

Step 2: What You Will Need


Polly Plastics Moldable Plastic

White Baking Flour

That's All, super easy recipe eh?

Step 3: Assemble Ingredients

Take Equal Parts of both the Polly Plastics Moldable plastic and Baking Flour

Shake them together well in a Tupperware dish.

Then spread the mixture out into a thin circle on a cookie sheet

Step 4: Bake Your Mixture

Set the oven to 350 F

Place your mixture in for about 10 Minutes or until the plastic pellets turn transparent.

Step 5: All You Knead Is PolyArmor ;)

Pull it out of the oven and let it cool for a moment until you feel comfortable handling it to blend it together and knead it all.

Don't let it sit too long though or it will be too hard to work with and you will have to reheat.

Step 6: Roll It Out Flat

Using a Pasta maker or a rolling pin, roll out the "dough" into a nice flat smooth sheet of your desired thickness!

Step 7: Finishing Touches

The beauty of PolyArmor is that unlike Worbla PolyArmor is very smooth already and requires no layering priming, sanding, or sealing before you can paint it. You can just paint it and it has a beautiful sheen!

It's better than worbla, it is PolyArmor!!!

Get your plastic here to make some of your own!

    guess if I have to ask what a Worbla is I don't need one

    Haha, it is a thermoplastic sheet that you can use to shape for any kind of molding/ modeling project you want. it can take complex curves and cools hard. It can be reheated and reshaped as many times as you want or need. :)

    Hahaha :) Worbla is a thermoplastic sheet frequently used by Cosplayers to make armor, but it can have many other crafting and DIY uses as well :)

    thanks for cluing me that some sort of Dungeons & Dragons sort of thing? or just a overall role playing deal.
