is a clay product, that AIR dries extremely fast, no baking required. When
you open the box, you'll see two clay rolls, each a slightly different
color. If left wrapped tightly, the clay stays soft. The hardening process
starts as you knead the two colored clays together. Pinch off a little
of each color and begin working them together. A little goes a long way,
so don't take a huge hunk off to mold a new hair-style for instance. When
the colors turn a bright white, and uniform, work QUICKLY! The white clay
starts to harden as you work with it. If by chance, it should get hard
to work with, just add a few drops of water to the mix. This will allow
you more time to work your piece, before it gets completely sticky, or
hard. As stated above, be sure your piece is prepared by cleaning off the
residue. All the clay products are applied right to the surface of the
plastic, there is no glue to apply. They adhere naturally. With "Milliput",
the hardening process starts almost as soon as the colored clays are mixed
together. I didn't use this product on any large areas, like the "Trelane"
figure required. So I don't know how it will standup to the stretching,
or how durable it would be. But for small areas, like hair, collars, boots,
belts, etc., it worked beautifully! In about 20 minutes time, the clay
will harden. Make sure it is "rock" hard, before you attempt to sand, or
start to paint. I only use small pieces, and the time to harden only took
about 20 minutes. If you work on a larger area, or use a thick piece, you'll
have to be the judge as to whether it has harden to the point of being
ready for sanding.
