anyone use KwikPlastik by J-B weld

Posted in Custom Workstation

I looked in the stores here for Apoxie Sculpt and no one has it, I looked at every product I could find and read everything on the back/side of every package. This was the best substitute I think I could find: KwickPlastik. It says it bonds to most types of plastic ans specifies that it Doesn't stick to polyethelene or polypropylene and "a few other plasics". It's a 2 part mix like that apoxie sculpt. I only have 1 good spare action figure to try this on and I have been staring at it for at least a week or 2....

Should I go ahead and use this product on my action figure? Has anyone else tried this stuff?

I would go so far as to say it's very hard after using it. To customize
Without it.

I second the count on this one, Fixit is an investment, it's great to work with and holds detail as fresh as when you sculpted it. Only problem I have is the insane amount of time it takes to cure fully but once it is cured it's rock hard. I just ordered some more about a year since my last batch so it does last and yeah, it's great for fixing other stuff too!!!..........I love Aves Fixit!!

were do you live? it coast me like....25 bucks? and that was for a 15 buck container? I like the JB products but..I use fixit sculpt for sculpting. I have the metal weld for when I make posts and I use it as a base around nails and screws ect. But noting beats fix it. It holds detail well, its amazing, and if you have a dremel with detail heads it dosen't beat them up.
Also, if you ever have an issue ( which you shouldn't the stuff is a miracle substance) I called once and they put me on hold and grabbed the owner creator cause he was in the store to answer my questions. he's a rad guy! and he'll talk your ear off. I recomend the stuff highly also. my GF loves it cause I use it around the house for small repaire sand stuff. if you invest in even the smallest amount it goes a long way. I do A lot of sculpting. Scratch parts head mods body mods and I throw a lot away cause I brake it or my experiment fails. And
the Smallest tub lasted me a year or more. you don't need a lot.

I saw the kwik metal, it was next to the plastic type, but I assumed the plastic type would go better with plastic figures, plus it says it sticks to most plastics. It says it's easy to carve, sand paint and all that stuff. I still haven't tried it, was waiting for a few responses here. The shipping & handling on Apoxie sculpt is so much, I just don't feel right paying that much at the moment. 1 pound of it is close to $40 shipped. I think they had 2 ounces that was a little bit less, but compared to the pound price, a much worse deal. I will practice with this kwikplastik stuff first, it was a little more than $4.

JB quick weld ( I have the auto mechanich and house hold repairs) works pretty amazingly...as a adhesive...but once its on...its on. and it drys the color of metal but it can be dremeled and sanded...and its got metal in it.
and ordering apoxi on line is the best thing you can do.

I've never tried that stuff but I've tried products like it. I think the best option is to order Apoxie sculpt online. It will be worth your money.
