Worbla’s Black Art is a sister product to Worbla’s Finest Art, with a smoother texture and less adhesive, allowing for fine detail sculpting as well as a more forgiving surface for placing details and editing work in progress.
It is non toxic and can be shaped by hand without requiring special safety gear.
Black Art can take complex curves without requiring a vacuform, and is self-adhesive when activated – meaning that glues are not required to join pieces. You use hot air, water or steam to shape the plastic however you want.
Scraps can be heated and re-blended and the leftovers can be molded like putty,many artists use use Worbla’s Black Art instead of clay to create near-indestructible pieces.
Worbla’s Black Art can be painted with just about any paint, wax or finish. Black Art’s texture is finer compared to Finest Art, and you may choose to leave it unprimed before painting it, or prime it with products such as Flexi Paint™. Black Art will need less priming than Finest Art, which can save time on larger builds.
