Step 1: You Will Need:
For this project, you are going to need:
- A digital induction warmer
- Olive oil
- A metal pan designed for a digital induction warmer
Step 2: Heat It Up!
Set the digital induction warmer to 150 degrees F and bring the water to temperature.
Then, add in the InstaMorph.
We're looking for the pellets to turn clear and start clumping to one another.

Step 3: Take It Out!
Now, you can remove the InstaMorph carefully with tongs or another tool.
Make sure that your tools are coated with olive oil so that the InstaMorph will not stick to them!
Wait a few seconds or so until the InstaMorph is cool enough to touch and you should be fine!
Make your creations now and enjoy!
