Hi William,
You have probably found the info already, but just in case;
Greenstuff and apoxie sculpt can be mixed. I like about a 70/30 mix for sculpting, but play with it and see
which texture works best for you. More apoxie sculpt will be "runnier" or more squishy. you can also mix in some fimo or sculpey (just a little) to extend the work life of the putty (slightly). There is some nice discussion of this on the reaper forum for sculpting.

Thanks for the insight and info.

I used a bit last night as a cover for some fill in a few GW tree bases for heft and no problems with irritation. I did notice the consistency is a bit chalky compared to Greenstuff, more like Milliput than GS. The residue left on my fingers reminds me of Sculpy more than GS. I will need to use it more to see if I like it as much, so far, not so much. Seems sloppier to use. :?:

Any tips to help a new user of this product?
Yeah, I'd agree that it's very similar to milliput (which I've also used). I basically have a cup of water to dip my tools in and that helps.

I know it's been a while since I posted on this thread. Not so crafty these days, trying to get back into it.
I have a question for any sculptors out there.

I have used Greenstuff for quite a few years and never used gloves or anything to mix other than my fingers. This Christmas I received some Apoxie Sculpt and I noticed a few warnings that Greenstuff does not have on it. They are Hazard Statements about skin reaction and eye irritation. Have any of you who have used A.S. ever used anything other than your uncovered fingers to mix it? Any reactions or irritations? My constitution is typically high to these things, but want to make sure before I get into it too much.

Thanks for any insight.
I wanna use my fingers because I hate gloves.
Help :?:
I use Apoxie Sculpt instead of green stuff (too expensive from the hobby store in my area). I use it without gloves and I've never had a problem. Of course, I'm not using it all the time (infrequently, at best). I tend to clean my fingers/hands quickly afterward.

I have already seen a need for a 45* curved passage piece, but our champion modder is way ahead of me.

Curse you William! I just got a second set of Dwarvenite Water, and now I'm not going to be able to paint it until I mod it all up. Too many good ideas in this thread! :D

This thread is awesome. I really want to see those stream and puddle pieces painted, as I was just thinking yesterday that I need some narrow cavern waterways.
