The next time you throw your hands to the sky and lament, "Argh! If only I had a doohickey with a flat lip on that end and a kind of hook-claw on the other that's small enough to fit in this slot here, and strong enough to hold up that bit of stuff there..." take a breath, go to the cupboard, and bust out your InstaMorph moldable plastic. These tiny beads of non-toxic, biodegradable polyester thermoplastic soften to a state of easy pliability at around 140 degrees F, and then harden again at room temperature.
In the interim, you can mash them together and shape them into any of the ingenious ideas you've been storing in your cranial stable of ingenuity. Artistic profundities, desktop figurines, custom tools, vampire fangs - the chasm between what Somebody needs to come up with, and your ability to be that Somebody, is already beginning to disappear.
Use hot water, the oven, or a heat gun to soften InstaMorph beads, and just about any molding mechanism, hands included, to perfect your creation. InstaMorph can be painted, carved, or attached to other compounds, as well as re-softened and reconfigured at any time from its date of arrival through infinity. Note: InstaMorph has not gained designation as "food safe" from the FDA. Please be mindful when using it in the presence of small children and fat people, who might confuse it with Dippin' Dots, the ice cream of the future. Available in 6-, 12-, and 32-ounce jars, priced $9.95 to $39.95.
