Question about Milliput

Recommended Posts

So I have a box of the standard (grey/green?) milliput epoxy, and it has started to have like a green discoloration(one side, not the other). It still seems to mix correctly, though it does seem to take a bit to set. Is this a known issue, has the batch gone bad, have I done something wrong?

I have a set that does that, still mixes and works like a charm, my gues is it is due to handling, I do keep it sealed in the plastic, but when mixing a little I have touched it and maybe the natural oils in our skin cause this?

I have some that does this. I think it might be the age. I know mine is several years old. Still mixes and cures fine, though to be safe I have only been using it for large gap filling and basing, not detail sculpting.

Typically that is oxidation of the hardener.  If you dig into it it is probably only on the outside of the material.  Apoxie Sculpt does the same thing.  I have noted no difference in the performance of it.  Storing your putty in the freezer stops this from happening.

Thanks everyone, that makes me feel better:) Off to stamp some bases I guess:) Eager to try my new seppuku stamps:)

 

Let the putty cure a bit so it won't be too sticky when you use it for stamps or rollers.
