Sculpt Help, small parts

Posted in Custom Workstation

help with how to sculpt small add ons. How to get small wet sculpt parts to stick to other non_sculpt parts and/or dry sculpt. I've tried covering them with brush-on super glue but was wondering if there was another way.

The best way to deal with small add-ons is to knead the 2-part expoxy together, and wait until it firms up a little (not solid, just 30 mins or so, so it's not goopy like playdough any longer)

Sculpt the small bits on to the surface you want. Let it dry. Then, the next day press on it with your thumb, and chances are it will pop off. Use gel based superglue to reattach it in the exact same place.

I've found this method works the best. Sometime you can get away with skipping the reattachment step, as it will bond really well to most surfaces without help. I'd make sure your sculpting area is free of dust or oil before you start - that can cause loss of adhesion.

Cheers,
