Magic Sculpt Review

Ok, Some people have been asking what I use to make my figures. Well since I had to buy more last week thought it would be good time to write down my thoughts. Magic Sculpt is a two part epoxy putty. Is Manufactured by Wesco Enterprises, and can be bought from their distributors. There is not much of a difference between different epoxy putties. But I will list some features this one has. Can be smoothed with water. This is really nice, as even though I sculpt into the putty later, It is always good to have a smooth surface or a correct surface before sculpting, it just saves me time and energy. You can edit the properties by mixing in more hardener or more resin parts. I Like to keep it even, which I feel is soft enough to cut but strong enough not to break apart. I have found that you can color the putty by adding in some oil paint. I find this use full as the original gray is sometimes hard to see defects. With added color these spots are highlighted better. The real selling point for me is the fact that they sell the stuff in large quantities. You can still buy small tubs, But they do offer up to a 5pound kit. For me I buy 16oz kits at a time, I find they last me months on end. That way the putty is fresh and I don't have a huge tub of the stuff in my closet that I would not finish for years.

Here is the kit I buy, Contains equal portions of each. From the store I buy, It is 15$ for this kit.
