Apoxie Sculpt vs Fixit sculpt

Posted in Custom Workstation

Which is better Apoxie Sculpt or Fixit Sculpt?

Also, if I were to say make a suit of armour, and I sculpted the chest piece and wanted to let it dry for 24hrs and then do the arms the next day, would the two blend seeing as theres 24 hrs between them?

Whit ANY air dry material like either Aves product, the MAIN thing to learn through experience is the timing of the material. ...At which point of the curing process to add which details. It's all timing!


@Incom. Well I would certainly say so lol. And your welcome.

@ole jade jaw. Yea. Im sure its going to be trial and error for the first couple of sculpting sessions. I am prepared to wait so I can get it right. My first project I am currently planning and trying to work out any issues before I start. Its gonna be a lot of work but it will surely be worth it if it comes out alright.

You did that an your a beginner? You may want to give yourself some more credit lol. That is amazing. the amount of detail is astounding. I also like the idea of sculpting courses, I will need to look into that in the future.

In my experience, sculpting is done in layers and Fixit Sculpt allows those layers to blend as smoothly as you want them to. I'm still a beginner when it comes to sculpting and still have a lot to learn. I might even take a sculpting course sometime.

Here's an idea of what I have achieved with FS so far:
















There are many tutorials to be found online, as well. And if you really want to get an idea of the power of Fixit Sculpt, well, just take a look at Sithfire's work

Thanks for the info. Money is no object especially for what you are getting for the price. When it comes time to sculpt, I will definitely order some Fix it. To many good reviews on it lol. Also the 4 hr cure time is really nice so that you don't feel rushed.

If you would have seen my work before Fix it Sculpt, you would see just how good this stuff really is. Fix it sculpt has taken my work to new levels. It makes sanding an easier process because I always smooth everything with a bit of water on my finger before it cures. You can also add a dab of acrylic paint to fix it sculpt to make it any color you like.

Apoxie sculpt is not bad either, but the cure time is shorter & it is not as durable when cured. I also do not like the fact that you can not smooth it with plain water.

Fix it Sculpt is only a few more dollars anyway. I initially decided to go with it just because of the longer work/cure time. I figured if I had a project that was taking hours to sculpt, I didn't want to waste any sculpt by it getting hard when I was working with it. It's never really been a problem though. I think Apoxie is 2 hrs & Fix it is 4. I would rather have that extra time.

It's possible to get a second piece to blend after the first has cured but I find it much easier to just sculpt pieces in one sitting it generally gives me smoother results

Yea I read that comparison. Thanks for the help. So if money were no object, its best to go with the more expensive one being the fixit sculpt. So how about the second question? Any experience in that?
