KobraCast is a manufactured from flexible polyester fabric and can be softened and moulded under heat. It is woven from strands of thermal plastic and synthetic thread, so it has the texture of linen and is extremely robust once set. It is quite stretchy on the bias and can be formed into many shapes. It can be cut with scissors and painted once set.
KobraCast becomes mouldable when heated to temperatures over 80ºC. To activated use a dry heat such as a hairdryer or heat gun. A dry iron can also be used by placing the Kobracast between sheets of baking paper. Heat guns are the most popular method as they allow the most control. It can also be reheated and remoulded. Shape with wet hands or tools to avoid sticking.
Applications include: millinery head pieces, costuming, lightweight craft reinforcement, theatre props and set design, craft work, taxidermy, puppetry, masks, sculptures, museum mount making and more.
