The instructions below will get you started working with InstaMorph in a matter of minutes.
Step 1: Heat some water to between 140 – 150 degrees F. Water can easily be heated on a stove top or in a microwave oven.
(You can also also heat InstaMorph using hot air from a heat gun or oven. The InstaMorph® pellets must reach the same activation temperature. Once achieved, you can skip to step 5).
Step 6: Once you’ve got your InstaMorph creation finalized, let it cool to room temperature. You can place InstaMorph in ice water to speed up the setting process. Once completely cooled, InstaMorph will then be as solid and strong as before it was heated.
We’d like to think that if you’re smart enough to realize the amazing possibilities of moldable plastic, we wouldn’t have to tell you this, but we’ll do it anyways…
- Burns suck. Be careful when heating water or using your stove or heat gun to heat up InstaMorph.
- Heating InstaMorph above 150 degrees F does not improve the properties of InstaMorph in any way. It may lead to InstaMorph sticking to more things and increase the likelihood of burns. So just don’t do it; you don’t need to.
- Small pellets of InstaMorph could be a choking hazard. Please supervise small children when using InstaMorph.
- InstaMorph can stick to different materials. Sometimes you want this, sometimes you don’t. InstaMorph, when moldable, can stick to different types of materials, including but not limited to: metal, plastic, fabrics acrylics (like fake fingernails or plexiglass), or styrofoam. This could be a good thing, but it all depends on the project or the mistake.
- Because of the unique remoldable property of InstaMorph, you should keep your finished pieces away from extreme sources of heat. We would hate to see you lose your amazing creation in a tragic space-heater accident.
- InstaMorph has not been certified “safe for internal use” or “food safe”.
