Polly Plastics Moldable Plastic & Color Pellet Kit Review

I knew Travis would love Polly Plastics Moldable Plastic & Color Pellet Kit Review. He's always making molds for sculpture, rings, and teeth for his full time job.

One thing I love about this set of moldable plastics is that is comes in some fun colors!

  • White
  • Red
  • Blue
  • Yellow
  • More White
  • Black
  • Silver
  • Gold




I'm not sure why some bags are colored, while other bags are clear. I would think it would be cheaper to package all their plastic pellets in the same small clear bags. 

I love how it has a chart on how to mix the colors to get other colors.



Here are the primaries:



Black and White:


Silver and Gold:


The big tub of White:



Like I said in the previous post my husband wanted a cast of a fossil lepidodendron. He found a few of them when he was younger. He loves the texture on them. He plans to use the texture in some of his sculptures. First he sprayed it with a mold release. Then he used Polly Plastics Silicon Molding Putty to put on the the lepidodendron. After that he wanted to use Polly Plastics Moldable Plastic to make the mold more durable.


In order to make it moldable you have to heat water up. Travis used the microwave. Make it so hot that it almost boils over.

Add the plastic in the water.


You can see it starts to turn more transparent when it's melting down.




When it's played with it reminds me of Flubber. Keep in mind that this is the stage you have to work fast. If you don't work fast enough it's not the end of the world. This stuff can be melted down again and again.


Lay it into, or onto your mold (whatever you are using it for).


You can tell when it's ready to lift up. It turns opaque. Mica said, "It feels like coconut oil."


It was used to harden this mold.


Cost: $29.95 $18.95

Made in the USA

What would you use this for? I think I want to try dripping it on a painted canvas. Much like an encaustic painting.

This looks so cool! I'm not quite sure what I would use it for, but I know I'd have fun trying to figure it out!

I am sure my little one would like to mold this into something. I can see how it would be cool on a canvas.
