Kobracast Art Examples

Worbla’s Kobracast Art is one of our newest products, and quite different than the rest of our lineup in some ways! Paper thin and incredibly sticky when activated, Kobracast works much like a thermoplastic interfacing: you can use it to fuse to and manipulate fabrics, creating seamless looks and permanent details. It also can be used for hatmaking, both as an alternative to buckram in some aspects or for creating sculpted details such as feathers or ruffles that stand on their own without wire.  Kobracast can be sewn through with a standard machine, reshaped with heat whenever needed, and can be washed in cold water, making it excellent for costumes where more finicky materials would give trouble. 

Below you can see some ways Kobracast has been used to create costume and accessory pieces.

You can also see videos of it in action and how it has been used in the above projects below!

Worbla for your BJD

If you own a Ball Joint Doll, you know that making small props and costume accessories can be tricky – clay can shrink when baked, or be brittle when handled. Worbla lets you make both props and accessories easily, without worrying about the traditional limits of other materials – and the best part is? You can easily use up scraps from smaller projects for your doll!

First, the pattern was drafted by covering the cosplayer in plastic wrap and then tape, drawing out where the armor would fall across the back, chest, and then arm. The tape and plastic pattern is then cut out, and transferred onto fun foam and Worbla.


The foam is then sandwiched between the Worbla sheets for stability. Each piece is layered together following the pattern. The spine is attached by strips of elastic that are glu
