sculpting question

Posted in Custom Workstation

ok so I sculpted a head for a figure it looked great imo but then I cooked it to harden and it never harded just the thiner parts did which was fine cause I thought it just takes longer to harden if its thicker
but when it was about half way done I check on it and it was still soft but parts were cracking off

what did I do wrong this stuff is expensive I don't wanna waste a bunch of it

I only use super sculpty anymore for filling deep cracks, body cavities where I need something solid and it won't get much abuse and making parts to make molds of.

Hobby Lobby does sell Milliput, which is kinda like Apoxie, it's 7.99 for a 4 oz. box in the models section.

You won't find apoxie sculpt at Hobby lobby. They have many polymer clays there, but the only place you can find A.S. Is on the Aves website, or on websites like Ebay .etc.

I've been using apoxie clay and have had the same problems, I used to use apoxie sculpt and it hardened much better. I'm going to back to that, but I'm a lil annoyed that I didn't return this clay when I had the chance.

you're lucky they left your car lol. Where's Robocop when you need him Yeah we really need a place like that. the nearest normal hobby shop is a hour away and I have no place to get good water based paints like you use for painting warhammer and stuff.

Not sure if hobbylobby has it (I've never seen one of the stores). Yeah we have pat Catan's here an they've gone to crap since they moved to a new building. I get my paints now and then and brushes there. They don't even have the craft porcelain stuff that michael's carries.

yeah. Aves' apoxy sculpt is good for small stuff as it's rock hard and it holds detail better. http://www.avesstudio.com/Products/Apox ... culpt.html

I use it for filling in large areas as the bigger the chunk the better. We used it in college for sculpting and prototyping. I never mastered using it and haven't found how people make jewlery out of it without itbreaking unless I'm cooking it too long. I have 10 lbs of supersculpty lol. Then again I plan on making custom body parts and casting them in resin.

ah. like sculpty? Yeah sculpty and polymer clays are brittle unless they're super thick like a sculpture. Apoxy sculpt is rock hard and 20.00 from Aves.

is it apoxy sculpt? I've never had it flake off unless maybe the mixture was a bit off, I know if I didn't mix it really long it wouldn't cure.
