Re: [1listSculpting] Re: BeeSPutty Q+A
- I got about 4g - a small amount that is enough to do a 25mm sculpture, and enough for me to evaluate its properties. It seems to handle a little like Chavant's Le Beau Touche, and seems a bit friendlier than Fimo for sticking to itself. I am looking forward to playing with it!
thanks Stefan, I'll let you know how it goes.

I really think that the real point is that the sample was FREE.
Having been in business and suffered the attentions of the 'ebay shipping police' and complaints that FREE gifts aren't what was needed, I can sympathise with the giver of free gifts.
Oddly enough I just dealt with one charity pleading for craft materials to be used by their crafters. I offered a few dozen kilos of beads but asked what they would be used for..... nobody seemed to know.
I don't know if anyone else did a rough calculation on the total cost of all the samples in postage alone, let alone labour? For a small business that comes off the time spent resting, with family or even sleeping.
Thanks for the samples, I didn't ask for one and consequently didn't get one, but the gift offer was appreciated.
I would be interested in knowing what members think of the product.
P.S. Yes I am a grumpy old git! ;oP

- Hi,I tried BeeSPutty and like it very much. For miniatures you should get the hardest available version. If you want to see some really impressive stuff done with BeeSPutty, have a look on this blog: http://runecast-sculpts.blogspot.de/Especially have a look for the tiny pets (dogs etc.). If nothing else, these extremely small and still detailed miniatures prove that BeeSPutty can be used even for the finest details. To be honest, I have no idea how Gregor managed to get this level of detail. He explained it to me, but to hear it is one thing but to do it is another :-).Gerhard
