Introduced in 2014 Worbla's Finest Art is the first and original thermoplastic in the Worbla Art Line.
Worbla’s Finest Art is a sheet plastic, brown in colour with an orange peel like texture.
It is non toxic and can be shaped by hand without requiring special safety gear.
Finest Art can take complex curves without requiring a vacuform or subtractive editing and is self adhesive when activated.
Worbla’s Finest Art activates at 90°C or 195°F. We generally suggest heating with a heat gun, but you can also use hot water, an iron, or steam.
Finest Art has a working period of minutes, depending on the thickness of the working piece and the room temperature. Once cool the pieces are rigid and strong, they can be heated endlessly and have no shelf life.
There is no waste with Finest Art because your scraps can be heated and re-blended, the leftovers can be molded like putty, many artists use Worbla’s Finest Art instead of clay to create near-indestructible pieces. (Check out these sculptures!) Finest Art scraps can also be heated and flattened into new sheets as seen here.
Worbla’s Finest Art can be painted with just about any paint, wax or finish. The natural texture of Worbla’s Finest Art means many of our customers choose to prime it before painting. We recommend using Flexi Paint™ for priming, found here.
