Thanks I use Magic-Sculpt an epoxy resin, (two kinds of putty that you mix together) You have about an hour to work with it until it starts to harden. It takes a day or two to harden completely.
The putty is pretty nice to work with and you can sand it and carve it after its hard.
I think I have seen Magic Sculpt in a craft store near where I live. Intresting. Thanks for the info. I have a Thomlason stone sculpture with a broken and missing ear....do you think this would work in rescupting a new one.?
If you want to resculpt the face for example to ooh more arabian, I use a knife to slice it into a dished shaped face. If you need to reposition a leg, get some boiling hot water and hold the leg in for around 10 secs. Then take out and bend it.
