I was contacted by a company named ThermoMorph and they asked me if I wanted to try their product and make a video review of what I thought. In return they gave me a free jar of ThermoMorph. It is a moldable plastic. I was AMAZED at the things that I could make with this stuff. I made Barbie accessories, jewelry, a custom crochet hook, a loom hook, slingshot pellets, a guitar pick, drawer handles, Christmas lights, shoelace ends and so much more. The possibilities are endless. This is a crafter's dream come true. hehe
In this blog post I want to share with you some pictures of the things that I made. I also encourage you to check out the video that I made. It will give you all kinds of tips and tricks. I will tell you what I think of the product and how well it worked for me. I will also show you some of the techniques that I used to make the things that I created.
Here is the link to my video:
First of all what is moldable plastic?
You put these plastic beads into water and they melt enough for you to form into whatever you feel like making.
Here is what the beads look like when they are cool. (above)
When they are heated in water, they turn clear and become very moldable.
Here are some of the things that I made
I made all kinds of jewelry. I wanted to come up with ideas that were different. I used items that were sitting around my house to mold my jewelry into different forms. In the video I show you some of my techniques. It is a lot of fun to be creative while making the jewelry.
These are my husbands favorite earrings that I made. He likes the cool colors. They are fun to wear. :)
I used puffy paint to give these earrings a texture.
Here are some hoop earrings that I made.
Here is a set of really fun jewelry. I made sunset earrings and a pendant with palm trees. I really like how these turned out.
You can make all kinds of Barbie accessories. I made a surfboard. You can make furniture, shoes, hats, dishes and MORE with this product. Fun stuff!!
I made my own custom crochet hook to fit to the shape of my hand and how I hold my crochet hook while I am crocheting. The great thing about it is, if you mess up, you can throw it back into the hot water and start again. No waste... No mistakes!!
I made my own Christmas light bulb. A Christmas tree! It looks so AWESOME with the light shining through it. The possibilities are endless. You can use any LED strand of lights to make into a custom light strand. You can make Easter lights, Christmas lights, Flower lights, Halloween lights, Summer lights, Snowflake lights... etc. I show you how easy it was for me to make this light in the video. I would love to experiment with this a lot more in future videos.
I made my own drawer knob. My hutch was missing one. It worked great and it was so easy to thread the screw into the plastic.
I made slingshot pellets for my slingshot. They are much more accurate than rocks and they are white so it makes it easy to find the pellets in the grass so I can reuse them.
I made the plastic end on my shoestring so that my shoestring wouldn't fray. :)
My husband made a custom guitar pick. hehe
