    Can Sintra be reshaped?

    Can sintra be reheated once it was shaped? I have armor that was shaped and painted and I want to make some changes. Can I reheat it?

    Heating Sintra 101

    2mm
    5-7 seconds in boiling water

    3mm
    10-15 seconds in boiling water

    Use a heat gun? Be sure to heat the back side as it distorts the surface texture of the plastic
