Fab site and friendly helpful people!

Yesterday i bought some prosculpt through ebay. Not to sculpt figures but to use for smaller work i plan on selling as a pick and mix section at kensington. Prosculpt has fast become a favourite for use where the tiniest of items need some extra strength, like unicorn horns, mushroom and bones etc. I want to feel safe whatever i sell wont snap at some later point.
Anyway, i orderd translucent white and today Julie phoned to check my order was correct, mostly caused by my message to her not being that clear. Had a lovely chat (i like to talk) and found her to be one of the most helpful people i have come accross.
I don't know a lot about sculpting and mixing clays for strength but she filled me with so much info i'm now confident i can achieve all i imagine making.
I like to advise people myself with the little i know, because sometimes its frsutrating when you dont have the answers and nobody is willing to give away their secrets. I think its good to share and help when you can and totally admire that in people.
Here is Julie's ebay link: http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/gifts4u2couk/
This is the only UK site on ebay that seems to sell prosculpt.

  8. Yes, prosculpt is really good value and goes a long way. The only probalem if you are not using it to make dolls is that it will have to be coloured once baked.
    I like it because it handles much better than other polymers and i like the way it blends and smooths when needed.
    Ive become a bit of a paint the colour item i want, rather than using a clay in the colour needed.
    Kate i hope you like it and let me know how you get on.
    Michelle, i know isnt the artists work out of this world.
    Debie, thank you for sending the magazine link to me, much appreciated.
    Julie, yes, i love Julies fairies too. Glad the link is useful for you.
