I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THIS STUFF HAS BEEN ALL MY COSPLAY LIFE!
I have been given the amazing opportunity to test out Polly Plastics for free in exchange for review. And holy crap is it amazing!
*Seriously I wish I would have known about this stuff sooner*
I will be reviewing three components of the materials.
The Moldable Plastics
Silicone Molding Putty
For those who do not know. Polly Plastics is a thermoplastic… meaning you heat it up and it becomes a moldable material. You can also use it to make your own worbla!
Although it has many other functions too. I found it extremely useful that it came with a guide that gives you ideas on how to use it. Anything from decorative to functional.
Without further ado…
The Moldable Plastic Pellets
Note: Requires boiling water to get to moldable state. Although you could also use a heatgun on it (although not recommended until you have a clump so the pellets don’t fly everywhere)
You will know its ready to be molded when the pellets become clear.
As they get cooler they will begin to get cloudy looking (not transparent!)
It honestly feels like a combination between gum and hot glue when its in its moldable state. And it was extremely easy to mold!
I used it to build a rough texture on my worbla piece.
*If you are combining the pellets with worbla be sure to heat up your worbla as well so the pellets stick*
Yes - You can paint the plastics.
But its not only great for details, but also FUNCTION!
For my Tales from the Borderlands Fiona derringer *yeah yeah forgot to tell you guys that I was making one… it will be done soon* I used the pellets to fill in the cracks between the barrels.
AND one of my favorite functionality tips. Got the wrong size nut/bolt. No problem. Grab your bolt and wrap a piece of moldable plastic around it (when it still in its moldable state) and BOOM… you got a new nut that fits your bolt.
*Tested the durability and the makeshift nut was extremely strong, holding on tightly to the bolt… while at the same time you can still screw it on and off. Nifty!
But what about those colorful pellets?!
They are amazing simply because it gives the plastic a consistent look. Personally I liked using the color pellets more than actually painting the plastics because the pellets had such a clean solid look.
Thankfully a color mixing guide is included with the pellets to help you get the exact color that you are looking for!
And that Silicone Molding?!
Seriously just as awesome as the actual plastic pellets!
Have an object you want a molding of? Then encase it in the 2 part silicone mold. Wait 30 minutes and there you go! I tested the molding on my Sailor Jupiter rose earrings to see how much detail that the molding picks up. And after using filling the silicone mold piece with the moldable plastic pieces, I found that the molding picked up all the details from the original rose piece. AMAZING! I was even more thrilled that I didn’t have to wait 24 hours using resin. Using the plastic pellets where 100 times faster!
OMG THIS IS AMAZING… EVERY COSPLAYER NEEDS POLLY PLASTICS IN THEIR LIFE!
