Not sure what the difference is actually. Postage to the uk was $11.

I have only tried the Apoxie Sculpt.  Shipping was a little over $10 on the site (USPS Priority I believe).

This is something I'm curious about too. I was going to call the company but if anyone here knows that would be awesome.

Maybe you could ask Woosie, I noted she states in her current thread she uses the clay, so she would be a good one to ask!

I bought the Apoxie Sculpt after much deliberation on the same question. I'm guessing that the Clay stuff is, well, clay-like, and the Sculpt stuff is a lot smoother and Play-Doughy, so it can make more refined shapes? My stuff does that, at least.

I've wondered this myself, and I've always just stuck with the Apoxie Clay.

From Ave's website under the FAQ's:

The difference between Apoxie Sculpt, Apoxie Clay, and Fixit.
In many cases, any of them can be used with the same great results. Yet, they all have their place and best uses. It generally comes down to a working preference, the Apoxie Sculpt and Fixit have a nice putty like feel to them, Apoxie Clay has a little more of a clay like feel to it. Super White Apoxie Sculpt has a shorter working time but is more firm, and the Fixit Sculpt has the longest working time of the 2-part products and has a nice, firm clay like feel to it

They also have a comparison chart: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I have both of them and I honestly can't tell a difference in how they handle. They're both sticky and smell like corn chips  XD

I know one difference. If you are sensative at all you might have problems with apoxy sculpt. Every time I use it, even if I absolutely saturate my hands with lotion before hand I will wake myself up digging and scratching at my hands because of how bad and deep they itch. Also? I get a response on my chin and throat that is much the same, that last for days, from the fumes it seems to put off even when I don't touch my face. >.>

I actually got to be a guinea pig with the Clay when it came out, they sent me some to try out before they started selling it.  I prefer the clay as it holds detail better...it's hard to describe.  Like when I'm sculpting feathers, I use a needle to do the veining...if using Apoxie Sculpt, after the vein is made and I leave it for a few minutes it sort of flattens out and loses it's crisp edges.  If you use Apoxie Clay it does not flatten out and stays nice and crisp like it should.  Other than that they aren't much different.

Interesting, the clay comes int two parts too? I have apoxie sculpt that was a gift from one christmas but I found a small problem. I was told that you can use lotion to smooth it out. So I did. Turns out the lotion I was using not only yellowed the pony but no the Part B of the Apoxie sculpe has yellowed too (because the lotion was on my hands at the time). It's not very easy to get out of the container either XD (might need to start using a strong spoon to get it out)

I've never had any problems with the apoxie sculpt holding details, but you do have to wait sometimes until it's at the right stage of curing to get some of the really fine stuff.
