I started using Apoxie-Sculpt, about 8 years ago. Once I used it, I was hooked, especially for how much scratch building I do in the Motorsports modeling business with Classic Racing Resins. Apoxie-Sculpt also works great for regular plastic model kits where some modifications are needed to be added or fixed. It works great for filling in gaps on models. Its also water-soluble as you can dip and wet your tools or fingers to help work with the surface of the compound without it effecting the properties. It will make the compound smoother and looser to help with your needs.
Apoxie Sculpt combines the features and benefits of sculpting clay with the adhesive power of epoxy! Its smooth, putty-like consistency is easy to mix & use. Self-hardens (No Baking) cures hard in 24 hrs., semi-gloss finish. Adheres to nearly any surface. Great for sculpting, embellishing, bonding and filling most anything. Accepts paints, stains, mica powders & more for a variety of finishing options.
Also Unlike other similar brands I’ve used, it has a great shelf-life and doesn’t go bad and part A doesn’t harden up and go bad!!!! And the price of Apoxie sculpt is VERY Reasonable! Its goes a long ways! Also comes in a nice jar. No junky flimsy box
I’ve used it many times with modifying many kits to change the shape of the bodywork to a different spec.
– Self-Hardening: It hardens in 24 hrs and you can sand it, very easily.
-Putty-like consistency: it works like regular modeling clay and if it gets too sticky, just add water to your fingers or dip your tools into water.
-1-3 hour working time
-Highly Adhesive: It will stick to anything with a properly prepared surface – I recommend always scuffing up any surface that you plan to add Apoxie-sculpt, over.
-0% Shrinkage & Cracking: This is one great feature of this compound. Some putty’s and fillers will shrink, because they rely on being air dried and that will produce less and good results
–Hard & Durable
-12 Vibrant Colors: In motorsports modeling this doesn’t necessarily mater but in other cases it might, but it does come in the following: Natural, White, Black, Brown, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Red, Pink, Silver-Grey, Bronze
-Adheres to: Itself (in any stage of set-up before or after curing), other epoxies, Ceramic, Metal, Wood, Stone, Glass, Plastics, Foam, Fiberglass, Polymers, & more!
Measure equal parts of A & B. Always retrieve parts A & B with different tools.
Mix & knead together for 2 minutes until thoroughly combined and a uniform color is achieved. Note incomplete mixing will give poor results. *Allow mixed product to rest 5 minutes for better handling.
Apoxie Sculpt is ready to use; working time is 1- 3 hours. Shape as desired. Smooth or texture with a wet finger, brush, Q-tip or sculpting tool. Self-hardens (NO BAKING) 24 hour full cure.
Working Time Line Guide:
1/2 hour: Sticky & most adhesive
1 to 2 hours: Easy to work with
2 to 3 hours: Setting up, form-able detail
24 hours: Hard, cured & waterproof
