The improvement of the formaché material with respect to the traditional paper mache is its greater mechanical resistance, lightness and an ideal plasticity for its modeling for artistic purposes.

The object of the invention is the obtention of a mouldable and resistant plastic material.

Degree of development

Initially the research focused on obtaining a mouldable material for its application in Fine Arts. Subsequently, the research and testing of numerous materials with specific properties gave rise to the selection of two materials for their mechanical and plastic qualities: Mouldable formaché and  Injectable formaché.

The date of publication of the grant of both patents takes place on September 6th, 2018.

Formaché Mouldable


Formaché Inyectable



Recently there has been a research contract by researchers, Dr. Carlos Morán and Dr. Damián de Torres, who together with the University of La Laguna and the Cabildo of Tenerife will carry out a research project “Agustín de Betancourt ” which will last at least four years (2019 – 2022).
