The Sculpey stuff doesn't look very attractive though… it reminds me of lard! Or does anyone remember the episode of Fr. Ted when they showed the candles made from Fr. Jack's ear wax?
Will be following this with interest.
The advantages of using Sculpey are that it remains usable until it is oven hardened whereas two part resin putties only have roughly a thirty minute usable time span once they are mixed. So you can play around with sculpey a lot more and if you don't like the results you can just squash it up and start again
It's cheaper than epoxy putties at between €11 and €15 a pound depending on where you buy it.
And it allows you to work larger than epoxy putties would. I build the basic form out of tin foil and apply the sculpey around that. For the finer details I will use Magisculpt, milliput or greenstuff

ild like to try this sometime duno if ild get away with baking it while herself is about tough
Do it while she's watching one of the soaps. offer to make a cup of tea. You only need to bake it for ten minutes at 130degrees centrigrade and there's no smell. Unless you forget about it in which case the kitchen will fill up with smoke and there will be stern looks and awkward conversations
