I use Apoxie Sculpt to modify and customize dolls. It cures in about 3-4 hours and allows for high levels of detail to be sculpted in. Adheres well to plastic and also takes acrylic paint very well. Highly recommend from Dollightful on Youtube! :)

Worked so nice for my project. I used this on a ceramic wedding cake topper to modify the couple. Adding hair and dress parts and new flowers. When it cured it felt just like the figure was made that way to begin with. Very light as well. It does smell a little like Doritos, and I was hoping it would smell like markers because I’m strange.

Apoxie Sculpt is an excellent product for sculpting and creating uniquely shaped repair parts, With metal reinforcement embedded in it, I have used it to repair a glove compartment hinge. (The lowest component the manufacturer sold was the entire glove compartment door.) When first mixed it has a very soft, somewhat sticky clay-like consistency. It goes through several degrees of firmness as it sets, which can be advantageous in adding details without changing the overall shape. It can be smoothed before fully set with a wet cotton swab. The only negative is that it has a shelf life (one of the components starts to separate and exude an oily substance), but that is after more than a year of storage (I bought the 4lb container earlier). Heartily recommended for sculptors, model makers, and unusual repair jobs.

I've worked with this stuff a lot for sculpting in the past, and needed to do a very difficult repair on a broken car door handle. The part that broke is made of plastic, the kind that doesn't like superglue or adhesives in general. The break was also where the door handle was its absolute thinnest.

But, that's what makes this stuff so good, isn't it? This stuff goes on super easy, and can be thinned with water to shape it, or sculpt it however you need. In about an hour or less, it firms up, and then after 24 hours, it's done, and solid. It basically saved me a car repair.

I cannot recommend this stuff enough. Fantastic product, easy to work with, and gets the job done!

I have never used anything like Apoxie Sculpt before. I don’t think of my self as artsy in any way which is why it took me over a year to even open my jars. I have a much beloved garden fairy who has been the centerpiece of my garden for 25 years. Sadly, she has taken more than a few falls and hits. She is made of some type of resin and had one wing almost cracked off with huge holes. She was so damaged that I have been looking for her replacement for about 5 years. I decided to try Epoxy Sculpt as a last ditch effor to rescue her.
This is what I did:
1. TRIAL RUN: I put rubber gloves on and used wooden popsicle sticks to take a tablespoon of each product out of the jar. I mixed the product for 2 minutes and let it rest for 5 minutes. At this point the mixture was ready to use. It has the consistacy of play doh. It is not sticky or runny and easy to shape and mold. I tried it out in a inconspicuous place in case I made a mistake or it did not work. It was great.

MY PROJECT:
1. MIX PRODUCT- estimate how much you will need to complete your job. Using clean, separate utensils, take equal amounts of each jar and knead for 2 minutes. Wait 5 minutes to let product to rest before working with it.
2. APPLY PRODUCT- depending on the size if the job, work in small areas until you are comfortable applying the product. It is easily spread and sculpted. If it gets sticky or hard to smooth down, you can wet the surface or your finger and it will glide on easier. A wet finger will create a smooth surface, a popsicle stick or sculpting knife can create any type of surface you desire. I used a wooden popsicle stick to create a rough surface to blend in with the finish. You can take your time as it does not set up hard for a few hours.
CLEAN UP- the product washes and cleans up easily with water.

I want you to see my garden fairy. First pic is of gaping wing hole, second is right after applying product, third is a day later after set up. So impressed with this Epoxy Sculpt!!!! If this review was helpful please press the “helpful button” which means alot to me. Thanks.

I absolutely love this stuff! I am a mixed media jewel (among other things), &this is my favorite thing to work with in place of polymer clay for many items I make. I love the 4 hour work time. It is sandable, drillable, and takes all sorts of paints beautifully! I will add pictures of my latest piece as soon as it is complete

I used this to fill and repair holes in ceramic Christmas Village pieces that were damaged in a windstorm. The material dries ROCK hard - so hard that I was surprised at how much effort it took to shape it to the original pieces. I have no doubt that it will last longer than the objects themselves!

I used it on egg gourds to make little ornaments. Then painted over. It dries a light brown. It is a bit sticky so you have to use lotion on your hands when mixing it and forming it and a sheet of wax paper below. During the first hour it is really malleable and as consequence you may have to reshape somethings if they flatten out from the weight of anything. In my case the feet and noses had to be reshaped a few times. After 1 hour it was a bit more stable and after 24 hours you can paint because it is quite hard by then. Painted with acrylic and sealed with polyacryl spray!

This is my new favorite product. I can't believe how awesome this is! Super easy to work with, applies and sculpts easily with a bit of water, and sands like butter when dry. My only "meh" with it is that the photo says "cream" but the title of "natural color" is actually medium grey.

I bought this upon the recommendation of a painting group on Facebook and it is fantastic. I wanted a cheaper alternative to Milliput that was easier to work with than their Standard grade, and Apoxie Sculpt cleared that hurdle with room to spare. It is much softer yet it's still firm enough to shape. If you do need it to be firmer, you can just put it into the general shape you want and work the details a little later after it has begun to cure.
