Thanks for the honest review of my products. To be honest - the P2 Clonetrooper helmets shouldn't have had any of those defects... they might have been from an older mold that was past it's useful life. I don't think I've made any in a while but I'll take a better look at the mold, it might be time to replace it.

As for the size issue - while I can understand your request for including a picture of what types of figures it might fit on.... in my experience that's a bad idea. Here's why: 99.9% of eBay buyers have a combined IQ of 8 and see a picture of a figure and a head cast or a painted head cast and think that's what they are getting. No matter how many times I post in the listing description - even going so far as to put text ON THE PICTURES - it doesn't matter. Buyer sees a painted ...

I have made them from various materials..... cardboard folded and covered with felt, or wrap the blade with a piece of plastic wrap then shape scabbard out of clay or procreate over the wrapped blade , wiggleing it every so often, so it had some space inside the cavity ....seem to be the best and last the longest ( so far )
Sanding Apoxie Sculpt in Custom Workstation by Picchio   
Wednesday, January 9, 2019
   [Edit]
Hello! I’m new to the community and also new to workin with apoxie! My question is what grit should I be using to sand my apoxie? My apoxie is blue and with the sandpaper I’m using (220,80,120) it’s smoothes it but it leaves the sign of scratches and leaves it an off color. Any suggestions? Thanks!...[See More]

Finest grit sandpaper I've used is 220, but then I don't normally do a lot of apoxie work. I have noticed some small scratch marks left when I have sculpted pieces, but, usually, after a few coats of paint they aren't THAT noticeable imo, unless you're looking VERY closely. I decided to look up sandpaper grit on Google and this is probably what you're looking for...

"For heavy sanding and stripping, you need coarse sandpaper measuring 40- to 60-grit; for smoothing surfaces and removing small imperfections, choose 80- to 120-grit sandpaper. For finishing surfaces smoothly, use a super fine sandpaper with 360- to 600-grit."

I sand with 400 to remove material semi-quickly, then wetsand with 800 I think to smooth it out a little. Paint usually hides any scratches.

(I don't have a formula, this is just what works for me)
