I wanted to see if I could make an Apoxie Resin cane. This is a technique polymer clay artists are familiar with.
Since Apoxie Sculpt hardens in about three hours, the major difference between it and polymer clay is time. With polymer clay you can make a cane and still slice into it and manipulate months from now. I made up a small portion of these five colours of Apoxie Sculpt; Pink, Bronze, Orange, Grey and White. Here is my very important tip. Apoxie Sculpt is sticky when you first knead it together. I let these balls of clay sit on my table for one full hour.
Then I did something risky. I ran the balls of clay through my pasta maker to flatten them. This is risky, because if any Apoxie Sculpt was to get stuck in the machine...it would cure there rock solid.
I love the shapes I created! I want to make a marbled effect and I believe I achieved that look.
There was still a little time to press in some crystals. I will say the clay was getting really set by this point.
