This mainly started because I was watching a tutorial that used this stuff. Badly translating the Portuguese it looks like just super glue, but the girl was putting her hands right in it without getting stuck. Is it like E600?
Similar strange international crafting materials thread. Plastimake was everywhere in Australia, but if you tried to find freezer paper to make transfers it was a fool's errand.
It just says 'rubber, plastics, cork, ceramics and metals'. I assume that because it doesn't say 'skin, fingernails' that the girl thought it was safe to shove hands into.
On their website it says that this specific glue is a cyanoacrylate and that it's recommended for flexible surfaces. It also says that starts to cure as soon as a thin layer is applied, and that it glues skin and eyes in seconds.
Tl;dr that girl is either a fucking idiot or she really, really doesn't like her hands.
There's this new thermoplastic whose makers, following the worbla marketing techniques, have sent samples to famous European cosplayers without revealing its name. Apparently it's supposed to remove the need for shitloads of primer worbla has.
See, that's what I thought? She uses it on foam and then dremels it down on the edges and it looks pretty great. It looks like she barely has to touch it for it to stick, which would be great, but holy shit, I do not want to glue my hands together.
Dammit, please. That is the only thing that stops me from wanting to use worbla.
If that's like the rubber-cyanocrilate stuff like Ceys, it actually glues flexible stuff like leather without making it brittle, and yes, it holds to your skin, but it dries in few seconds (so no gluefingers), and you can safely remove it from the skin afterwards with a semi-hard brush and/or a little glue solvent, because it bonds to itself more strongly than it does to living flesh (dead leather is another matter) so you can just peel it off like Elmers' glue.
Just give it a try.
As long as you don't touch your eyes or mouth, or at least as long as you videotape it.
If that's the case it's a relief. There are so many idiot weebs who think that cosplay makes them immune to dangerous materials that I thought OP's example was yet another genius who didn't have any common sense. Maybe I've just gotten paranoid from all the insane eye horror these people inflict on themselves.
