    Ive noticed some people have been using Super Sculpy to mod their figures. I was wondering what the process was using Super Sculpy. I know it cooks in an oven, but surely the figures would melt with it. But some of the details ive seen it doesnt seem like the kind of thing you can cook separately.
    Any help would be great! Thanks!

    Yes, you have to cook it. I know some people who have used a hair dryer to harden the outside surface enough to make mold from, but I wouldn't mess with that. Sculpy is best used for stand alone work, not adding to an existing toy.

    I think what you are seeing alot of people use is epoxie sculpting compound. You mix two halves of a clay, and it cures and hardens within a day.
    Apoxie-sculpt is a popular brand, but I like Magic-Sculpt since you can smooth things down with water. Hope that helps.
