Some Tips for using Apoxie Sculpt

Apoxie Sculpt Apoxie Sculpt is a popular two part synthetic clay with a smooth consistency akin to that of putty. With versatile properties and ease of use, Apoxie Sculpt is considered at the forefront of hobby clay thanks to its lightweight characteristic and the fact that it has little shrinkage or cracking. When using Apoxie Sculpts, here are a few tips to ensure optimal results.


Be wary of colour accuracy with Apoxie Sculpts

When adding pigment to Apoxie, it’s pretty difficult to get an accurate result if you’re trying to match the apex to another material. Due to the fact that the Apoxie Sculpt is slightly grey in colour, it makes the results of pigmentation hard to estimate before drying.


Choose your tools carefully

Use silicone rubber tools, which are available in any art store. They’re the easiest to clean Apoxie sculpt and they don’t break down over time. Silicone rubber tools are insusceptible to the Aves Safety Solvent that many people use to break down Apoxie Sculpt. Metal tools are also useful, as they sustain themselves over time and the user can learn to customize their work to the tool over time.


Work on a timetable

Sculptors shouldn’t mix up more clay than you can use within a few minutes. Apoxie Sculpt generally has an open window of three hours before it becomes unworkable so it’s best to work in sections. When first blended, Apoxie Sculpt is very crumbly and sticky, so users should follow the instructions from the container and wait an hour before starting their project. For hard finishing details, you should wait for the product to cure for 24 hours before you begin any sanding, tapping, or drilling.
