How to Make Plasti-Goop for Creepy Crawlers?

Kingkamandi's avatar

Mattel, and later ToyMax and Jakks toys fabricated a toy called Creepy Crawlers in which you poured fluid plastic called plasti-goop into aluminum molds of bugs and different animals and heated them in a little broiler to make adaptable, bendable toy bug. The tops off are immensely costly (even on ebay) so I am searching for an approach to copy the formula for plasti-goop. I am not searching for options like earth, elmer’s paste etc.

Does anyone comprehend what plasti-goop is made from?

I miss Creepy Crawlers! I used to make them, at that point sell them at school. I payed for my whole center school lunch, for every one of the three years, on those things. I kicked extremely inventive and off to include eyes and hair and stuff.

With respect to the equation? I don’t have a clue. Despite everything I have an old jug banned in my stack o-mess I presently can’t seem to tidy up, however when I discover it, I’ll investigate see at what it is made off.

My best speculation would be fundamental plastic, with some type of silicone to make it malleable. In the event that that was the situation, the plastic dots are truly peep, for 50$ you can get like a 20 lbs. basin, however silicone can get ery pricy (this year, alone, I have burned through 3,000$ on enough for my photography. I do calling hollywood cosmetics, with things like horns and so forth.) That is a lot of silicone, yet at the same time, at that cost, you should purchase the jugs, and yet, it may not be silicone. You likewise need to consider the color they may utilize. I realize a few colors change drastically when presented to heat.

I truly need to know now, what they made that stuff from… cause the more I consider it… the more I understand I have no clue what sort of compound would cook that way… It ether goes from fluid to strong, or viscus, never semi-strong…

It is an intense one to make sense of. It sort of looks like fluid latex blended in with mineral oil and shading. Does fluid later solidify (yet stay malleable) when heated for a couple of moments? Is silicone a pourable liquid?

A call to Jakk’s Toys has given me the primary fixing; PVC!

It is a fluid PVC compound, regularly used to make angling lures.

I’d prompt the Professional #502 type. An entire QUART of this stuff costs a negligible $18 !
