Step 1: Pouring the InstaMorph
Heat up water on the stove until it is between 175 and 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Once it between those temperatures pour however much of the packet you think you will use in the water.
Step 2: Letting It Cook
After pouring the beads into the water set a timer for just over two minutes. The beads should become transparent and start to mold together. Once the beads are clear take the blob of InstaMorph out of the water and put it on a flat surface.
Step 3: Beginning to Mold InstaMorph
Allow the beads to cool for a while and then you can start to mold it. The InstaMorph allows you to make the plastic into any shape that you want until it hardens. Once you have created a figure or an object keep an eye on it so it will not sink or de-form.
Step 4: Remolding Your Object
If you do not have enough time to make the object of your desire throw it back into the water. Make sure the water temperature is between 175 to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. When the object become clear take it out and start molding again.
Step 5: Finalizing
To finalize the object set it out so it can harden. Make sure it does not de-form or sink. When you see that the object has turned white you know that the InstaMorph has hardened. The object that I have created was a mask that I formed around my face while it was cooling. The InstaMorph allows for a comfortable fit into the skin while it is drying. It will also keep its shape while it is drying. The final product fits to my face and allows a comfortable fit. Any modifications are able to be added such as Velcro for a head strap or more breathing holes.
