Producer is creartec trend-design-gmbh Weiler/Allgäu Germany, but
seemingly they only sell it over retailers.
One has to use 1 part acrylic resin-fluid and 2 parts mineral powder.
It is a really nice alternative to tin or others resins: it is
absolutely poison-free, odourless, not hot (in my old flat I burned a
hole into the floor with tin), and has a convient potlife of 10mins.
Expansion 0.1%, really fine details are kept. Hardening time is
50-90mins, but normally I leave it overnight.
Afterwards one has something resambling wood (1650kg/m3), easy to modify.
I have really good results with that one.
Fimo is on the list of things I have to try, as it is a lot cheaper and
less poisonous than e.g. green stuff.
Btw, at long last I got around to finish painting the first squad of my
scratch build Orc Drillakillas.
