Magic Sculp is a two-part epoxy putty which sets to an extra smooth finish for sculpting, restoration and model making applications.
When worked and smoothed with water, Magic Sculp sets to a material as smooth as ceramic. The soft consistency of Magic Sculp means that it will not shrink or crack, even when formed in large structures. This makes it a popular putty for building up bulk, creating sculptures and in restoration projects.
It is shaped by either hand or with tools and its grain structure allows it to hold fine details. Magic Sculp can be sanded, carved and painted. You can even attack it with a grinding tool and the cured material will not break or lose its shape.
In model making, Magic Sculp is used to create masters, assemble figures, carry out conversions and filling gaps. It offers excellent adhesion to all materials including metal, most plastics, glass, stone, wood, ceramic, jewellery and fabric.
The cure time of Magic Sculp is two to three hours at room temperature before setting firmly overnight. This longer work time makes Magic Sculp a popular epoxy for sculpting larger and more detailed pieces.
Magic Sculp can also be purchased as part of the SylCreate Modelling Putty Kit. The Kit contains Magic Sculp, Green Stuff and Geomfix Original A+B, offering a range of epoxy modelling putties which can be used in different sculpting tasks at a cost saving compared with buying each putty individually.
All three putties can be mixed together to create materials with different properties. We have written a guide to the benefits of mixing modelling putty here.
Magic Sculp Testimonials
David Parker, AFV Modeller Magazine:
“My first choice putty and modelling bench essential is Magic Sculp. I use it for filling gaps and modifying and sculpting figures. I find its soft consistency has just the right amount of resistance for sculpting.”
Paul Wade, Red Zebra Models:
“Magic Sculp isn’t too sticky and even has a bit of a waxy feel. It can be rolled into very thin sections, especially if left to cure for a short while, so that it’s a bit firmer. All the masters I make are made with either plastic strip/sheet or Magic Sculp.”
Dr Alex Clark, multi-award winning military modeller:
“Magic Sculp is the best type of modelling putty for scratch building military stowage, like tarpaulins and rolled blankets. It rolls very easily into thin sheets without tearing and gives realistic and natural folds and creases.”
