Don't know if anyone can answer this one for me but what's the difference between green stuff (Kneadatite) which is a two part epoxy putty primarily used (I think) by people making gaming minatures and Apoxie sculpt? I've used green stuff up until now when molding bits onto ponies - it's somewhat sticky but it seems to adhere well and dries strong but with a little bit of give (it's not brittle), and I can air dry it which is a definite must for me since I have a gas oven and ponies and gas ovens just don't mix (think pony mush here). It also has a few hours of working time to it from the mixing stage to the drying stage.

Anyway, I need to purchase some new sculpting stuff and was thinking about trying apoxie sculpt, but it kind of sounds very similar to what I'm already using so... for those of you who have used apoxie sculpt on ponies what's it like? Also how far would you say 1/4 lb. vs. 1 lb. of apoxie sculpt would go - am I only going to be able to get a few horns from a 1/4 lb. or what since if I do order I'm not sure how much to get. Thanks in advance for any advice here.

I would say that green stuff is better. Its more flexible and doesen't have to be baked. Are you in the UK? I couldn't find Apoxie scuplt over here only Fimo.

Woosie uses apoxy sculpt on her customs. You may want to look at them to see how it looks. She does mention that it's sticky and tricky to use.
