How to keep customs clean?

Posted in Custom Workstation

I don't mean like, washing it regularly and such.

I mean when your sculpting over a custom, such as when using Aves Apoxy, like I am, how do you manage to keep the figures so clean!?!

I've tried using my exacto blade to get rid of the little bits and pieces from when I messed up, but it's still messy. Is there any way to clean it off before it dries?

Thanks!

I think maybe the title is a bit misleading, what I meant was, when you sculpt, and accidentally gets parts of sculpt on parts you didn't want.

I found a good solution is to wait for it to dry, then just use a dremel and cut off the parts you don't want.

Aves usually sends you a small bottle of solvent with your order of Apoxie Sculpt. It's good for this sort of thing.
But as said before--you really want to make sure you've cleaned up any messes before it dries.

Sometimes you can chip it off with a exacto blade but if that doesn't work sanding it will.

I just use an old towel to give it a wipe over before I finish.

You could do either. Though obviously the best recommendation is to remove it from places you don't want it before it dries. I just use my exacto for that.

Thanks Pock!

But like, I mean if you accidentally get the apoxy sculpt in places you DIDN'T want it, and then after it hardens, would it be possible to sand it still, or dremel it?

If I acsedently get some dust in it or somthing like that I just sand it a litle bit once it's dry.
