If you look at a list of the most popular cosplay building materials on the market, Worbla is near the top. People use the thermoplastic for all kinds of projects but especially for making armor. And now they’ve announced a new product: transparent Worbla. It comes in sheets like Worbla and has similar flexibility. Plus, like Worbla, you can reuse and re-blend scraps. Worbla TranspArt does require a higher activation temperature compared to regular Worbla. Transparent Worbla is apparently a little trickier to work with too, but there are so many possibilities. The above video shows Worbla’s creators discussing how to work with TranspArt, and the below photo is an example of what you can do with the material.
