Fun-Gus is our mycelium toy kit. We've named our character Fun-Gus. His journey is to help you on yours! The kit involves growing your own shapes in molds of this light biomaterial. Craft activities included in the kit are planter creatures, mini molds, recycled molds, incubator, and more.
How the Kit Works:
Comes with necessary materials to start your own batch of mycelium!
You order bark incubated with mycelium to start!
Grow your mycelium!
Press into molds (provided in the kit or your own)!
Bake your forms!
Explore with your creation!
Make your own projects and creations!
What is Mycelium?
Mycelium is the root-like structure of filamentous fungus.
Is it plant or animal? Neither! Fungus is its own kingdom!
Is it dangerous for me to touch? Not at all! Actually, you are more dangerous to this mycelium! It is a tea mushroom.
Mycelium can be pressed into forms and grow into different shapes.
After the mycelium is grown and taken out of the mold, you bake it (at 200 F for a few hours), which kills the growth (so it is no longer living).
