How to Make Gems with TranspArt Instead of Resin

transpa art gems 1

Worbla is a popular material among cosplayers, and the company recently introduced a transparent product similar to Worbla to their line. Transparent Worbla, also known as TranspArt or Transpa Art, handles differently than Worbla and offers advantages when it comes to making see-through props or cosplay pieces. Lanthea Cosplay used the material to craft gems for a costume. Resin is often used to make gems – and it’s effective – but it can be messy and also smelly. With TranspArt, all you have to do is apply heat to push the material into a mold, let it cool, trim the edges off, and paint the inside of the gem with nail polish colors of your choosing.
