    Depending on how much sculpting you're planning to do in the future, you might want to think about picking up a batch of Apoxie Sculpt while you're at it, too.

    Fixit's better for super-fine details, and thin parts that you want to be made durable, but Apoxie's cheaper, so works better for bulkier, less fragile sculpts.

    Though I only personally have experience with Fixit, this has always been my understanding as well. I just didn't want to recommend something I hadn't used.

    Apoxie handles almost exactly the same as Fixit.

    It's just not as stiff right after mixing (wait maybe half-an-hour after mixing if your require a firmer material), so you need to be a bit more patient with it if you need to do some finer sculpt work.
