Step 2: Heat It Up!
Step 3: Shape It!
After the InstaMorph has cooled a little, try shaping it into the basic shape of a phone!
You can add details like the number pad and a screen, just remember to coat your tools and workspace with a little olive oil so the InstaMorph doesn't stick to it.
Step 4: Decorate It!
Now, try decorating with permanent marker or crafting paints.
Nic painted his cell phone green and added the Knox Makers logo!
