super sculpy

Posted in Custom Workstation

I heard that you could use super sculpy on your custom instaed of apoxie sculpt, I forgot who dose it but that boil the figure instead of baking it (cause of course it would melt) can some one explain the whole procedure and tell me why its better, cause Im a lil afraid to try it.

Sculpey tends to shrink and could possibly crack.. its not even in the same category as Apoxie sculpt... if your looking for a way to make bases without wasting your apoxie sculpt try this http://www.avesstudio.com/Products/Aves ... yshay.html

it has 0% shrinkage. and is stronger than sculpey IMO

Sculpey needs to be baked in the oven or boiled.. the work isnt worth the results... Apoxie chemically cures once mixed (NOT air drying, and NO bake) that means it will cure in any temperature and even under water..lol..

so yeah, like buzzy said.. The short answer is use Aves Apoxie or Fixit Sculpt. or even the "green stuff" is a good sculpt, its called kneadatite http://www.coolminiornot.com/store/prod ... xProd=1434

but it also isn't as rock hard and strong as apoxie

(and no, Jin doesn't use sculpey on figures)

yeah, I guess it could work better if you used SS on the base and then apoxie over top.

yeah I use the apoxie normaly I just wanted to try a new method to see how it works, (I heard Jin uses this method a lot) you think it would work better on figure bases and stuff like that, cause I really don't want to waste my apoxie on bases

The short answer is use Aves Apoxie or Fixit Sculpt. No heat required to cure it.

super sculpey will work too but is a lot more brittle and can break easier than apoxie.

also, its kind of a pain to boil it. If part of the sculpted parts touch the pot or whatever, they will get mushed.

but to boil it, you just put a pot of water over the stove and when it starts to boil, stick the figure in.
Then wait 2-5 minutes (depending on how much SS there is) and take the figure out. Don't touch it for like a minute and then it should be good to go!
