How to Make Gandalf's Staff - Part 4

 

In this part of the tutorial I show you another way to make the ornamental work on the staff with a two part epoxy resin.

Part 1 of this tutorial is here

 

 

Apoxie sculpt comes in two parts. You mix equal amounts of these two parts together. Mix it thorougly by kneading it.

Once it is mixed you have about two hours to work with it until it is hardened.

 

Now apply the apoxie sculpt to the staff in pieces. Work it just like clay and shape it to the shape you want.

 

Continue adding and sculpting the epoxie.

 

Use tools to help, including knifes. palette knifes or sculpting tools and dental picks.

 

Ok, the sculpting is done and it looks great.

 

Set it aside to dry. And once it is hardened in a few hours you can still work it with sand paper. to finalize the shape and smooth it out.

 

NextOkay! Let's continue with the tutorial and paint/finish it
