Foam Coating Materials


Aquaresin
  • AQUA-RESIN® is an easy to use, non-toxic sculpting resin. This water-based composite material can be used in casting, molding or as a foam coat. It is primarily used with fiberglass reinforcement.

    Permanent in all interior as well as most exterior applications, it has numerous uses in such diverse fields as scenic design, architecture, sculpture, and prototype and product development.

Winterstone
  • WINTERSTONE is a white, dry powder mix --- a complex multi-component cementitious mixture --- which when mixed with the necessary water produces a modeling medium of clay-like consistency. It stiffens and hardens gradually and continuously. It works as easily as clay and sets as hard as stone.

  • Magic-Sculpt is a two part epoxy putty that comes in two containers, (as seen above) one resin and one hardener. Magic-Sculp is mixed 1 to 1 by volume in small quantities as you need it. Almost anything can be used as an armature, such as; armature wire, metal mesh, styrofoam, wood and balled up tin foil.
  • Our favorite sculpting tool for Magic-Sculp are Clayshapers. Nothing sticks to these silicone tipped sculpting tools making them great for use with this sculpting epoxy.
  • See also Magic-Smooth - a two part epoxy gel. It does not dissolve foam, making it a great foam coat! It also is a great material for adding texture or as an adhesive to many materials.
