A long post from me today and right at the start I will say that this is a solicited (and honest!) review of the product. I was contacted a while ago by David of Thermomorph asking me if I would be interested in testing and reviewing the product. Not having heard of it before I wandered over to the website and have to say I was curious so I said yes......
So, what is Thermomorph ? Well, they are Polymorph granules. They cost £19.95 for a 500g pot and are available from Amazon . Ok, I bet you are still wondering what it is; in essence it is a pot of plastic granules that melt when put into boiling water allowing you to mould and shape it. So why don't you join me as I test it out.
So, in conclusion; a very interesting product. Overall I was very impressed, it is easy to use, cost effective and I will definitely be using this a lot. Especially for moulding as you would be able to make tonnes of moulded objects but I have more ideas I want to try too. Like die cutting, book covers different moulding....
However, one issue that cropped up was with the starfish, free hand shaping by pressing pieces together as I did for this will not work as it all fell to pieces with a little pressure as the separate elements didn't bond. Not a biggie but at least I know that now. But by using the heat gun to join the face to the texture piece and pressing it in with some tools seems to bond the pieces together properly.
Here are the links; to the website
and for the Amazon link
If you are still with me, thanks for sticking with it and I hope you've enjoyed it. At first glance, though it is not an inexpensive product, a little goes a long way. I've hardly made a dent in my pot and I've made more that what I've shared here and if you don't like what you've done you can always pop it back into boiling water and start again!
