Has anyone put apoxie sculpt in the oven to cure it faster? I'm going to try it.

I wouldn't do that, especially if it's an oven you use for food (not sure if it will release toxic fumes?!)... and I'm not sure if it will help the clay cure any faster.

Not sure if this comes too late, but I believe you don't need to stick to an exact 50/50 ratio when mixing Apoxie. Adding a bit more of the stiffer component will make the clay cure faster. Vice versa and it will be softer - I do this especially when my clay has already seen it's best days, haha. Of course you can't go too far or the clay might not cure properly, or it may end up brittle when cured.

Welp, too late XD

After about 20 minutes on 275 (same I bake polymer at) it's fully cured. It got white patches on it, but I'm going to paint it anyway.

So, maybe only in emergencies? (I'm on a tight deadline for a contest)

I have a lofty idea to make a custom once a month or so! Prepped the bait for this month's, ordered the hair, just gotta work on the painting and start prepping the bait for December once I find it. :)

Cut up some felt today to make more costumes, & not just for Baby Boys. Newborns & Teeny Tinies also get in on the fun. I have three prepped Ponies en route to becoming Customs, one of each size, who tested out the fit of the basic cape pieces.

@tailrust - Yay! A pony a month is a big goal. Can't wait to see what you make!

Thanks, BC! I feel like it's not a super unrealistic goal considering they'll be relatively simple.

Losing my airbrush is a great excuse to pick up a dual action. I had a single before. Also was really good in getting me to throw out a lot of boxes still in my room, but where could it have possibly gone?

After the amount of love the shark costume got I had to make more. Baby Girls get plenty of clothes & costumes (lion, clown, dragon, bunny, elephant), but other young G1s don't get that opportunity without a little crafting...

I understand washing sand, but why bake it?  The weather is cold, perfect time to paint or finish hair on the several ponies who are waiting.  Soooo, instead I broke my wrist.   But I guess better now than in the middle of a heatwave.

Oh no! Sorry about your wrist :(

You bake it to sanitize it and kill any bacteria, eggs or anything else that might be in it.

Took photos of the basic cape pieces, battery low or I'd take that ONE MORE PHOTO I need to take, due to the fact one of the cape sizes is tapered (the teeny one), & the narrower back edge needs measured. Also managed to photograph Batty Boo's bat wings & wingstrap, so that's a plus...

I have two heavily sculpted customs in the works that I need to get back to. One is a baby demon gargyole, and the other is a unicorn that I had originally intended to make into a gargoyle, but I sculpted it too look so much like an OC of mine I might just change directions...decisions decisions.
