Molding Magic (造形魔法 Zōkei Mahō, lit. "Molding Magic") is a type of Caster-Type Magic used by Molding Mages.
Molding Magic allows users to mold something, like an element, into different shapes. Using two hands with this Magic produces more stable creations. Using the faster one-hand style can cause creations to have less stability and power. In order to utilize Molding Magic, the user must understand the inherent structure of the properties about to be reproduced; including the flow and balance of magical energy within, before using their magical energy in order to perfectly replicate the structure of the identified material, using their magical energy to cause the manifested item in a more malleable state, completely unlike its regular version, as to allow it to be easily reshaped into a new form, reforming the material into a new shape. The hand gestures that one takes is a conduit which focuses and dictates the flow of magical energy, tapping into the magical energies that already exist within the earth and matter; representing the cyclical flow of eternano and turns that power to manipulable ends; allowing the user to form their element faster—however, some users are shown to be capable of performing Molding Magic without any hand gestures.
With core Molding Magic, the user is capable of manipulating eternano so precisely that they can modify how eternano binds together to affect the size and shape of items, even their chemical composition, enabling the user to gain an advantage over foes as to keep them guessing as they bond raw materials to manifest something which is brand new, or even reshape a pre-existing item. However, to even utilize pure Molding Magic, the user is required to use their own magical aura as the catalyst for the modification, thus requiring them to be within physical range of the item wishing to be changed. Molding Magic has been described as an "unrestrained" type of Magic, with the shapes created reflecting the personality of the user. Therefore, creations tend to be different from user to user, even if the users happen to be proficient in the same element. Interestingly, thanks to how Molding Magic works, it can be almost certainly assured that Molding Magic is possibly the magic with the most subspecies; however, certain masters of the style are shown to be able to use Molding Magic in its purest form to manipulate and shape eternano.
