ATTENTION COSPLAYERS

See this shit?
This shit is about to change your life.

This packet of stuff is called Instamorph Moldable Plastic. You literally buy a packet of this shit, and you can make any-fucking-thing.

You open it up, and you get little plastic pellets that look like this.

Doesn’t look like much, right?

WRONG.

When put in hot water (140°F, 60°C.), these pellets melt into a kind of putty-like stuff, that you can mold into whatever shape you want.

They make the coolest cosplay accessories EVER because they’re plastic - they’re moderately lightweight, they’ll survive being dropped and banged around, and they’re waterproof. I made Nepeta horns and Meenah bracelets for my homestuck cosplays, but it can do a ton of other stuff too.

Also, the whole project takes maybe a half hour - 10 minutes to boil the water, 2 for the pellets to melt in the bowl (it leaves no residue, so you can use a regular mixing bowl and a spoon to pull it out of the water), a few minutes to sculpt and then a few minutes for it to dry into a completely solid, plastic whatever-you’re-making.

AND THE BEST PART OF THIS IS THAT THIS SHIT IS SO CHEAP

YOU’D EXPECT IT TO BE REALLY EXPENSIVE BUT IT’S NOT

I got a container on Amazon.com for $10, but here’s the actual site so you can check it out some more. http://www.instamorph.com/

SERIOUSLY THOUGH DON’T GO TO ALL THE TROUBLE OF FINDING CREATIVE AND EFFECTIVE WAYS TO MIX MATERIALS, THIS IS REALLY GREAT.

I AM SO HAPPY TO HAVE FOUND THIS POST HOLY FUCKING SHIT THIS NEEDS MORE NOTES RIGHT NOW

nikthan asked:

Heya! So you see I do art just like you, yeah? But the thing is I'm still very very very very very new at doing digital art (in fact I find it excessively more difficult than traditional). I was wondering how you do your coloring? I've always had trouble with it. It's fine if you don't wish to answer and I apologize if you've already answered it OTL, I just really need help because my coloring ability is lacking tremendously and it honestly ruins my art. Thanks in advanced!

I’m using Paint Tool Sai, so there are features I use that might not work for all art programs (But I’m not sure, I’ve only used Paint Tool Sai and FireAlpaca before.)
