Milliput Epoxy Putty
Milliput are world leading manufactures of two-party epoxy putty based in Wales. Their putties are used by model makers, restorers, and crafters as well as industrial users as a general purpose repair putty.
Six grades of coloured Milliput are available. Standard cures to a yellow-grey colour. The other grades available are Terracotta, Silver Grey, Black and Superfine White. Milliput Turquoise is the latest addition to the range and the first new colour for many years, introduced especially for woodturners.
Milliput epoxy putty is supplied in two 56.7 gram sticks. When these two sticks are mixed together, a chemical reaction takes place and the soft material turns hard. This takes place over three to four hours at normal temperature (20°C to 25°C). The curing process can be accelerated with the use of heat.
Alternatives to Milliput
Green Stuff is a favourite of wargamers. It is sticky with a smooth cut which holds fine details, making it suitable for intricate carving and adding fine details when converting existing models made from other epoxy putty. Once cured, it retains a degree of flexibility. It is malleable when set, allowing it to be bent into shape without breaking.
Magic Sculp has a fine grain structure and a soft consistency, meaning it does will not shrink or crack, even when formed in large structures. It can be smoothed with water to provide an ultra-smooth finish, making it popular with sculptors. In model making, Magic Sculp is used to create masters, assemble figures and carry out conversions.
Geomfix Original combines Green Stuff’s ability to hold fine detail with the hard finish of Magic Sculp, setting to a ceramic-like material. Its tough surface preserves fine details like facial features and it withstands vulcanising well. Model makers, china restorers, doll repairers, jewellery designers, pattern makers and industrial users all use Geomfix.
Geomfix Coloured is a coloured version of the Original available in bulk. The standard range of colours match Swarovski crystals. Should a more specific colour be required, then we have the capability to custom-make Geomfix to virtually any colour. It is most commonly used in jewellery making and restoration.
Superfast Wood is an epoxy putty specially formulated to match the colour and texture of wood. It can be sculpted and carved to create wooden figures, as a filler to repair existing sculptures and structures, or for the bonding together of broken furniture.
