If you’ve been looking for the perfect material to mould your next great DIY idea – protective bumpers for your phone, a custom grip your favourite pen, custom-moulded earbuds – Sugru, a mouldable silicone putty, is practically science-fuelled DIY magic.
If you’ve ever wanted to mould a plastic just perfectly for the project at hand, Sugru offers a unique product for the DIYer’s toolbox — mouldable and self-curing silicone putty. Sugru comes in a variety of colours and sizes. Six 5g packets in single colour will run you $US9.
If you can make something out of Play-Doh you can use Sugru. Just rip open the package, pull the Sugru putty out, roll it around for about half a minute to warm it up and get it supple, and then mould it the way you want it. It starts curing in about 30 minutes and should cure completely within 24 hours. Check out the video below to see how easy it is to work with.
