So does this work with all apoxie clay?

No. Sculpy has to be boiled or baked in order to harden. Apoxies such as Miliput and Aves products are two part, self-hardening apoxies; so, these do don't need to me boiled or baked. Hope that helps man

I would advise against boiling a 2 part compound like Apoxy Sculpt. I've done that before and it always ends up with a very rough texture. When I submerge it in the boiling water there are a lot of bubbles fizzing out of the epoxy that contribute to the rough, ugly texture.

I don't know about Apoxie Clay, but I know that Craig Warrack has his own technique for speeding up curing times for epoxy plasticine. He uses Milliput and will dip his figures in hot water. He never said 'boiling' just 'hot' and he seems to have found success doing it. Maybe that would be a better alternative for you?

Yes, Sculpy is a heat oven/boiling hardening clay and apoxie, like Aves Apoxie Sculpt or Milliput, are air dry sculpting materials. These are better than Sculpey

Hey, I'm new to looking in to custom making some figures for my collection and had a question. Is this different sculpt material then apoxie? and if so which do you prefer?
