Tiny Mushrooms on Headpins

I was working with Apoxie Sculpt and had a little leftover. I have been thinking about making more little mushrooms for terrariums and decided to try making them with my leftovers. It's a little tricky to work with since I am so used to polymer clay. It is a little on the soft side but, the longer you wait, the firmer it gets. Once they had cured, I painted the caps with Pebeo and painted and stained the undersides with acrylic.

Have you ever worked with Apoxie Sculpt? If so, show me what you make!

I haven't worked with it, but I've wondered about it. Is it sticky? How long do you wait after mixing before it feels right to sculpt? (Nice detail.)

Yes, that is something that is rather annoying. You have to wear gloves when mixing the two parts and it is super sticky then. Once mixed thoroughly, you can leave it set for a while and it helps. You also have to be more gentle with it as it is softer than the Premo I am used to. The other advantage to letting it set a bit is it does get a little firmer. I've let it set for 15 to 20 minutes. I wanted to wait a bit longer but, since I am still learning about it, I didn't want to wait too long!
