Yo, I got some Aves apoxie sculpt (im one of you know he he he) and I am having trouble with sanding it, its rock hard when it cures.

Does anyone know how to remedy this? am I doing something wrong do you think?

Did you buy the Cleaner agent that comes with the BRAND ???

it basically dillutes it ! and helps clean ups after use...

and while puttying it all over your model.... water is your friend...

you should of experimented a little before commiting to a real model !

Scrapping it with an Xacto knife works very well... it's a sculpting compound after all !

but I would try the Cleaning compound first ! to try Re activating it !!!


Hope this helps...

Starship modeler Store sells that stuff !

best of luck !!!

You know what..I never bought the clean up stuff. Just filed it way down. It looks virtually flawless now.

Thanks :)

One thing I do to limit how much filler/putty contact I get on my models, is I do a really rough masking job around the effected area with plain old masking tape. I remove the tape with any excess putty - while it is still wet. I use the squadron green putty, have not tried this with Aves however.
I find that it helps to cut down on the sanding, and rescribing.
