The instructions below will get you started working with InstaMorph in a matter of minutes.

Step 1: Heat some water to 140 deg F. 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 2: Pour InstaMorph into the hot waterStep 2: Pour InstaMorph pellets into the water. Don’t worry if it isn’t enough to finish your project, you can always add more InstaMorph later.

Step 3: Wait until the InstaMorph granules turn clearStep 3: Wait approximately two minutes or until white InstaMorph pellets turn clear and stick together. This is when you’ll know they are ready to mold.

Step 4: Remove from water and let drainStep 4: Remove from the water and get rid of any remaining liquid between the pellets. Be sure to use tongs or some other type of tool (not your hands) as your InstaMorph will still be quite hot.

Step 5: Mold into desired shapeStep 5: Once removed from water, InstaMorph will be cool enough to mold by hand. Form into desired shape with your hands, tools, molds, or any other means necessary.

Step 6: Let cool until solid and opaque, enjoyStep 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.

 

WARNINGS

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”.
