Worbla offers an ever-evolving line of Thermoplastics with a variety of properties to meet every artist’s need.

Worbla’s Finest Art
The original formula, Worbla’s Finest Art was the first of our products and is still a favorite. Incredibly easy to use with an activation temperature of 90°C, Worbla’s Finest Art becomes soft and pliable, allowing you to shape, form and mould the product by hand safely. The adhesive properties mean pieces can be joined without the need for glue, and scraps can be blended for zero waste. Non-Toxic and Skin-Safe, Worbla’s Finest Art can be used in classrooms, apartments, workshops and beyond without needing uncomfortable safety gear or complicated venting systems.

Worbla’s Black Art
The sister product of Worbla’s Finest Art, Worbla’s Black Art (WBA) has many of the same properties as Finest Art – 90°C activation, functionality, Non-Toxic and Skin-Safe – in a black color. Worbla’s Black Art has a longer working time and a smoother finished surface, compared to Finest Art, and can take and create incredibly small detail. It has slightly less adhesive working time than Finest Art, so joining pieces requires both sides to be close to the 90°C for the best adhesion. The smoother surface allows for easier priming when a flat smooth painting surface is required.

Worbla’s Pearly Art
The next member of the Worbla family is Worbla’s Pearly Art. Pearly Art is a sister product to Worbla’s Black Art, with the smoothest finish available in Worbla products, a white color to make marking designs easier, and a stronger adhesive to make joining pieces simpler. Pearly Art is excellent for projects with minimal priming for a smooth finish, fine sculptural details, and frosted light effects.

Pearly Art Scales
Die cut scales cut from Worbla’s Pearly Art allowing artists to create various effects. Having pre-cut shapes saves time and ensures uniformity across a design.

Worbla’s Mesh Art
A new product to the Worbla Line, Worbla’s Mesh Art (WMA) again takes the same standard that Finest Art offers: 90°C activation, functionality, Non-Toxic and Skin-Safe – and reinforces the product with a plastic mesh, giving it a fantastic strength that is excellent both for freestanding projects as well as items that will see a great deal of handling or tension, including props, grommeted or laced costumes or apparel, as well as base structure to then add other Worbla Products to.

Worbla’s TranspArt (Transpa Art)
When standard Acrylic isn’t viable, Worbla’s TranspArt (WTA) is a clear thermoplastic that offers amazing flexibility and resilience that is solvent-stable, as well as Non-Toxic and Skin-Safe. TranspArt can be vacuformed, both on an actual machine/table as well as by hand with simple tools, can be tinted and dyed, and is incredibly difficult to tear, dent or rip. TranspArt does require a higher activation temperature of 120°C (above boiling) and has a higher learning curve than our other products and we suggest checking out our tutorials and videos on TranspArt before first working with this plastic to avoid disappointment.

Worbla’s FlameRed Art
When you need to meet fire code, Worbla’s FlameRed Art is specifically designed with theater productions in mind. It takes the same standard that Finest Art offers: 90°C activation, similar functionality, Non-Toxic and Skin-Safe, but is made with a flame resistant component built in, making it an excellent option for Theaters, Schools, and other locations where safety is of the utmost importance.

Worbla’s DecoArt
Worbla’s Deco Art is a polyester pellet plastic used for sculpting and building dimension, as well as molding. Deco Art bonds very well with other Worbla Plastics and is often used for surface details and hiding seams. Deco Art has a low thermal transfer, meaning it is easier to handle and sculpt for those sensitive to heat.

Worbla’s Kobracast Art
Worbla’s Kobracast Art echoes some of the original properties of Kobracast, in a new form. A thin, stretchable mesh gauze coated in a thermoplastic adhesive makes for thin sheets that can take complex curves and flex around undercuts and difficult to mold shapes. Incredibly lightweight, Worbla’s Kobracast Art is excellent for masks, horns, and theater applications.

Flexbond for Worbla
Priming Worbla is the standard process to create the smoothest surface before paint application, and one of the best products we tested over the years has been Rosco’s Flexbond. As a result we partnered with Flexbond to sell both their standard 1 gallon jugs, as well as smaller, consumer-friendly 16oz bottles. Flexbond is a scenic adhesive and coating that works both for plastics and foams, and is phenomenally resilient against damage.
