Cosplay: Intro to Thermoplastics
Does the word “thermoplastic” leave you confused or apprehensive? Never fear! In this workshop, you will be provided a hands-on introduction to Worbla’s Finest Art and Tandy’s TerraFlex and their various uses and applications. See examples and learn the best techniques for working with thermoplastics to make awesome armor, intricate jewelry, and detailed props. You will learn how to use a template, cut out a pattern, mold and work with the material, sandwich with EVA foam, and how to smooth and finish your work.
