Magic-Sculpt?

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hello all,

When I first started sculpting, I did some research and found Magic Sculpt. I know that a lot of people that do customs use Aves products (Apoxie Sculpt, Fix-it Sculpt). Now my question is, which one is better. I haven't tried Aves products yet. Magic Sculpt is ok in my opinion, but it leaves me desiring something better. It has a working time of about 3 hours which is fine with me. The problem is that when it's fresh it's too soft, and when it gets firmer it's too hard to sculpt in details. In my opinion, it's too "sticky". It's almost like old chewing gum. It's still flexible/pliable, but you can't do much with it. So I was wondering if Aves is the same way or if anyone has used both and can tell me which is better. Thanks in advance.

Hello,


I never use Magic Sculpt but I did thought of buying some cause some of my project are real big and takes long hours to work on. But, if your working on a small project and got 2 hours to spend then aves fixit if for you. Make sure you get some tools and a cup of water so it won't be a sticky work. Fixit feel sticky when you roll it up and can still be sticky after ..so if your not into sticky clay then this might not work out. The good thing about the stickiness is , it can stick to your figure better but can be hard if you make too much error on your work..but with every error there's always sand paper and etc to fix it.

Good Luck
Take Care
Bye :-)

The secret to working with magic-sculpt is to keep your fingers/tools damp but not overly wet. With damp fingers/tools the material doesn't stick to you.

THat I know no retailer carries the Avves Products. I think its by phone and email order only.

Other than online where would one be able to obtain Apoxie or Fixit Sculpt? I tried my local home depot but the locals around here are dumb as stumps and all I came across on my own in the paint section was various puttys and hole fillers and glues... and plaster of paris.

I"m gonna check out MIchaels and some of my mom's craft places for it or that Porcelain Clay.

You need to let Aves build up as well as it starts very soft and sticky to begin. Give it about 20 minutes and you are normally golden.
