[Archive] Cheap molding Clay?

Thane Godri GoblinSlayer:

I was wondering, does anyone know about a cheap molding clay about the equivalent to greenstuff. And if you do, can it be bought in the us?

Kera foehunter:

the best stuff i use is( super sculpey firm )

its a oven bake clay it also good for makeing mold of pieces and kold great detail

most hobbyshop in the U.S . it set you back !2.00

there also plain sculpey clay it cheeper. but super scuplpey you can mold pieces and use green stuff in the mold and you get graet details

i got mine at hobby lobby

Thane Godri GoblinSlayer:

Wow, thanks, there’s a hobby lobby close by too.

Grimstonefire:

Anyone looking in the UK you should buy greenstuff from here. 90cm for £8.12!

They also sell Super Sculpey.

Though this probably won’t help you Godri as with the exchange rate and shipping to the US it’d probably be too expensive.

GRNDL:

If you want a cheap, yet surprisingly awesome 2-part epoxy putty you should get some Aves ApoxySculpt. It comes in 4-5 pound (2.5 kg) pots for about $30 US. One of my friends gave me a half used 5 lb set and I still haven’t put a dent in it. I’ve used it on tons of projects, both miniature and large. The stuff seems to last forever.

They also make a “clay” version which is much smoother.

2-part epoxy putty is also called “plumbers putty” - you can get it at hardware stores. Kneadatite/green stuff and its kin is basically just a more refined, smoother version of it.
