Since this was a figure sculpture already in progress and the "sculp metal"
was the medium chosen, I have just gone with it. It is very smelly and I
keep the vent on but we have been using it for several days and it seems to
be working OK. It really is more like a "silver" putty but does dry fairly
quickly and is solid. The students have made tall (from 10-20") Giacometti
style figures depicting motion/movement. The sculp metal lends itself to that
bumpy/drippy look and even though you can file/sand it, some of the students
like the look "as is." They are painting them as well. I am pleased with
the results and loving the new school/students! Melissa
