Vendor's Description: 

DAGU will now stock polymorph and can offer you 1Kg for $22 USD. Admittedly shipping cost will increase that price but if you are ordering several other parts from us as well then it should work out good value for money. 1Kg will last a long time unless you are making very big robots. Comes in a re-useable plastic box.

Polymorph is a plastic that melts at very low temperatures. Placing poymorph in a cup of hot water is all it takes for this plastic to go from a hard white nylon like material to a soft clear putty that can easily be shaped by hand. Once cooled it will return to a tough white plastic. Perfect for prototyping!

Please email Claudia to place an order.

Polymorph is actually Polycaprolactone which is non-toxic and biodegradeable. Below are some links to tip/walkthroughs on using polymorph.

Shapelock is the same thing. Polymorph is just the UK name.
But you didn't sculpt that awesome fish freehand did you? Have you used it in some sort of mold?

I used plaster to make a mould of the original then pressed hot polymorph into the mould. The plastic is only 2-3mm thick. When the halves had cooled. I used a hot air gun to soften the edges and then pressed the two halves together.

Had a few air bubbles in the plaster so my fish ended up with pimples :D

Is this a limited time offer or will you be adding this to your regular price list?

It is on the new price list which will be posted soon
