I've embarked on my first major sculpting endeavour, and while it's fun and much easier than i was expecting, I have one big problem.

How do you waste the hours while you're waiting for the epoxy clay to cure?!

Yeah I second the Harry Potter idea! I watch it alot while customising so maybe start another custom while having a movie marathon? Poke Tounge

I would work on a new custom when I'm waiting for pony sculpting to dry,
although I try to do my sculpting before I go to bed so by the morning its all dry that way I'm asleep while its drying Happy

Sleep! Seriously, when I was working on the Monty Python swap I could only squeeze customising time in right before I went to bed, so I'd sleep straight through the drying time. That's probably not very helpful!

I have marathons too. My favorite thing to watch is my box sets of Ghost Hunters seasons 1 and 2. If you ever have a chance and find them to rent I would recommend it. If anyone doesn't know they go to places to disprove hauntings, but a lot of the time they end up with some pretty cool evidence.

Maaaan, you know the episode where they were at the old prison and they caught the shadow running up and down the hall?
THAT S MESSED ME UP FOR THREE NIGHTS!
And it didn't help that my guy was away over seas at the time, leaving me and my frantic imagination alone.

I've never used Apoxie, but while I'm waiting for coats of paint to dry I usually go play with my dogs. Or play video games, depending on my mood at the time. ^^

I find my gf online and we watch anime while I wait for paint or clay to dry.

It helps because I get to watch anime while I wait, and She gets to spend time with me. (I am hard to hang with I am so busy often)

I also second the Harry Potter Idea. I would put on movies if I am working at night and often work through the dry time of a pony and pick up another!

I always have three or four at a time in various stages.
