I can't say if we had met personnally... Danno I did. (asked him a lot of questions like... "What... take the AB apart... uh... beginners class here guy. Don't know how to do that!" )

So, yup.. was there. Was in the beginners class. Now that was the first time that I had ever spent so much time on a kit! I usually work on a kit for about 2 hours a day or so... but that was a first for me!

Good time!

Pizza remember!

There are 2 kits I'm in the process of buying right now and there is absolutely NO way I can do any of that.

Is there other stuff I can use to smooth the Apoxy sculpt other than the solvent?

Sure, you can use water, spit, rubbing alcohol, but the Safety Solvent works the best and helps to "firm" up the clay as you are working it.

Thanks Danno, are you familiar with Bison's epoxy stick?

http://www.onlinebouwmarkt.nl/winkel...uct=BISW8AE613

Would this be a subsitute for Apoxy sculpt? I bought it already since it's only 5 euro, and tried some on a test subject. It hardens great, but it stick to your fingers while sculpting and it smells BAD! Oh and after 2/3 minutes it is hardened.

The reason why I'm asking is, I only intend to build one kit and I don't wan't to buy a lot of expensive materials in larger quantaties that I will need.

I am sorry but no, I am not familiar with the product. If I were to assume, I would imagine that it is toxic and very similar to the many plumbing epoxy's that are on the market. If that is the case, it is very hard to tool, form, shape and smooth

I used to use putties like that many years ago (since I was not aware of a product like AVES at that time), but since I had begun using AVES Apoxie clays, I won't use anything else.

Then I will need to get me some AVES. Thanks for the advice. It's for AHR's batman statue.

one more question, If I use oil paints for the face bit's can I seal it with a sealer afterwards together with the rest of the statue?

You have to allow the oil paints to dry and cure before sealing with a sealer top coat.
