Vacuum Forming

Take a thin sheet of plastic, heat it up, suck the plastic onto a form, and you’re got Vacuum Forming! This process has been used for costume making in the film industry for ages, like for the Stormtrooper armor. Learn how to make your own vacuum forming machine and use the process for props and cosplay in our collection of videos below. For armor pieces, we use thin plastic sheets of Styrene. For transparent visors, we use PETG plastic. The thinner the plastic, the more detail is captured in the vacuform pull.
