Aves Fixit tips

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hi, this is my first post so nice to meet you all first!!!
then I have just in my first custom and I have bought Aves Fixit. I've noticed this is very crumble when I model it. I have made some work earlier with Super Sculpey and this one was very elastic and easy to use (the only issue with this is that not self hardens likes Aves Fixit).
Hope you can let me know some tips or tricks to master the Fixit. Thanks

I use apoxy sculpt from them and to get equal amounts (or as close as possible) I have some really cheap metal measuring spoons to scoop it out with. I'd clean the spoon before putting it into the various containers though.

Hello and welcome,


I find fixit easy to use, but always mix it 50/50 with part A and B. As for my advice? You can use water to smooth the surface. You'll get the hang of it. Fixit is fun to use, but just like anything in life it takes time to master . I'm still learning thought . Also get some tools, it's better than using toothpicks heh.




Good Luck
Take care
Bye :-)

It sounds to me like your mix might be a bit off.
Make sure you are using equal parts of the A and B and mix for a minute or 2 until it is all one uniform color.
I usually wet my finger tips with water when mixing as this will keep it from sticking to you when combining the two parts as well as when sculpting.
Also I would recommend using fixit sculpt over just the regular fixit, the 2 are similar but fixit sculpt seems to hold details better and smooths out easier in my opinion.
I use fixit sculpt on all my customs now its great stuff.
Hope this helps a bit.
