It takes some work to mix the two putty parts together. Then you have about 2 hours to work it how you want, and another hour where its still slightly pliable. It fully hardens overnight then you can paint it. That wand was the last thing I made with it because I had an allergic reaction to the MagicSculp. Super sculpey is much easier to work with. You have to bake it, but you can work with it as long as you want before baking it.
cool. in college in sculpting class we used silicon wax for lost wax process, that was probably the best stuff i ever used but u dare not keep it a finished project for its very expensive to have made. good ol' college resources hehe.
