This section will explain how to add detail to a figure.
"Milliput" 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.
