Worbla recently unveiled a shiny new product: transparent Worbla! Also known as TranspArt, the material has its quirks but can be used in a similar fashion to Worbla. Worbla’s creators showed off the material in a video but also wisely sent out review samples. Kamui Cosplay is known for shaping Worbla into incredible sets of armor so she tested TranspArt. Overall, she says transparent Worbla has potential but it handles much differently than regular Worbla. It gets very hot but cools fast so you have to work quickly and carefully when you shape it. It doesn’t stick to itself or regular Worbla particularly well either, but it does stick to wax paper (Worbla doesn’t). However, the transparency means you can likely create beautiful items such as gemstones or lit embellishments.
Kamui also takes the time to answer questions about TranspArt in the comments of the video and on Facebook. I feel like it’s only a matter of time before we see cosplayers start making exciting pieces with transparent Worbla.
