I made a couple of projects recently using this 2 part epoxy air dry clay and I am in love with it!  It was so easy to mix and work with, taking mica powders easily, and embedding things into.  Working time is about 3 hours, and it drys rock hard, and waterproof in a day - and there is no shrinkage!

A compact I made decorating the top with the material, texturing it, adding mica powder colours, and embedding crystals and a charm in.  It was for the Game of Thrones swap and I decorated it with the material representing the shell of a dragon egg.





Here is a tin I decorated to hold some jewelry.



I just sourced another supplier in my city that is better priced, so I can't wait to get my hands on more!

Bea-u-tiful! When I first saw the little opening clasp on the one with the dragon, I was hoping for a pocket watch. But a dragon compact is just as good!

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?

Love this and love your use of colors and textures!  Maybe I should try this - I have the hardest time with baking clay...

Oooooh - if I could get my hands on a functioning pocket watch that doesn't cost an arm and a leg!

It is great stuff IMO - the mica powders adhered beautifully, and I was experimenting a bit with stamps and it does take stamps for texturing nicely.  I would recommend covering surfaces with parchment paper, foil, or plastic to protect it for rolling out though, and it can make a big mess on your hands, so gloves would not be a bad idea, but it is water soluble when moist, and non toxic.

It dries rock hard, not brittle - it can be drilled, sanded, ground, etc after drying - but that would probably also depend on how thin you work it, I am sure.

The company makes a few products which are similar (Apoxie Clay, Apoxie Sculpt, and Fixit), but with some slight differences, here is the information on Apoxie Sculpt
