212Degrees+Spectar= Better wear gloves

By boiling spectar it becomes extremely flexible yet when it is cooled it doesn't get brittle. You need to work fast because spectar doesn't retain the heat very well. I also found that if you ,say take a strip of spectar boil it then twist it or roll it up ,let it cool, then put it back into the boiling water it will return to its original shape.

Are you making Spectar soup? :>) We've not done a lot of boil molding. It will be intresting to see what happens with your experiments.

Keep up the good work!
