Substitute for Aves Apoxie Sculpt?

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hi,
I'm from El Salvador, Central America, and unfortunately I haven't found Aves Apoxie Sculpt at my local hobby store (I went to the 3 biggest), so I ended up buying a somewhat clay material which dries up after a while. The only problem with this one is that it doesn't stick to the Marvel Legends plastic. Has anyone used another material, instead of Aves, which can I buy, for example, at a local hardware store? Thanks.

hi! I'm from the philippines and we also don't have aves apoxie here... but there's one brand of plumbers putty that is fairly popular among customizers here... it's called "waterstop" marine epoxy... you just mix part A and B and let it sit for hours and then it hardens like rock and blends in with the other plastic parts of the figure after being painted... it's a locally made brand though, but there might be similar plumber's putty in stores near your area that you can try... it's just an alternative though... hope that helps...

Hi, thanks for the response. I guess, I'll have to order it only. Just thought I could use another type of material for sculpting. Have to wait for a few weeks to get it then.

I suggest ordering aves online thats what I do but if you don't want to do that you could use mighty putty wich is allright but not half as good as aves.
He is not in the US. I'm not sure Aves delivers to other countries. Maybe someone could be nice enough to buy some Apoxie sculpt for you and then ship it to you (if you pay them ofcourse).
