Luke Wiehink, an Environmental Conservation Teacher in the Netherlands: “The FormBox is fast to set up and really easy to use. For children participating in my workshops, it’s always magical to see their (sometimes rough) clay mold, being formed into a (comical, beautiful, tough, etc) plastic gargoyle. Works every time!”
