Using the innovative thermoplastic material known as Thibra, our very own Matt Brundage shows how to sculpt a wand -- just for fun! In this seriously silly video, you'll learn some of the basic techniques of working with this moldable plastic. Anybody can create a wand, which makes this an easy and enjoyable class idea for stores to showcase the power of this unique product!

Supplies to sculpt a wand with Thibra

  • Heat gun
  • PAM cooking spray, or similar non-stick spray
  • Wooden carving tool
  • Wood dowel or stick

Tips from the video

  • You don't have to know how to sculpt.
  • "Have fun" and "Be true to yourself".
  • Thin layers of Thibra are easiest to heat.
  • A silicone mat working surface is a good idea.
  • Thibra won't stick to objects coated with cooking spray.
