Heat gun confusion :S
So I've decided to try out Worbla's and polymorph... but I'm confused about heat guns xD all the ones from bnq and argos ect online are all super hot ones :S where do I find one that can go as low as 90 degrees? :S

I think people usually get them on eBay.

You don't need a heat gun for polymorph but you can use a super hot heatgun on it, just don't use it very long but for Polymorph all you need is boiling water, I use a pyrex measuring jug and a chopstick for removal You just work it by hand and squeeze out all the water.

From a quick google Worbla looks like its a minimum of 90 degrees so you should be fine using a heat gun, just be quick with it and don't leave it pointed at one area too long. As an alternative you could maybe even just try a hairdryer.

^ that's awesome to know, thanks. I was going to try a hairdryer as mine has a really hot setting XD
do you have any tips for molding, like, what I should use to mold them around? can they go on skin?

Sorry, I've never used Worbla before so I can't help with that but I believe people use anything to get the right shape, pringle cans and all sorts I wouldn't advise directly onto skin as if it is too hot and you can't get it off you could burn yourself. Just find something roughly the right shape of what you want.

Kamui is probably what you're looking for resource wise for how to work with it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXme58f4Ibc&list=UU79qFuymkVas5dCScbLF9fw&index=1&feature=plcp

With Polymorph you can use anything really (that's not plastic), I use a glass surface protector to work on as you don't want to use anything plastic, especially a cutting mat as anything that's plastic it sticks to and makes it really hard to come off (I've learned this the hard way by ruining one of my cutting mats ^_^) Glass against glass helps immensely to flatten it out as well.

Stupid double post, but anyway, I mold polymorph with my hands but you can push it into clay molds and things like that I'd imagine.
