What is Milliput Putty?

Milliput putty is a two-part, epoxy-based sculpting epoxy putty that is often used for modeling and sculpting in various applications, including hobby and craft projects, automotive and industrial repairs, and prototyping. It is known for its versatility and ability to be molded and shaped into a wide range of forms while retaining a high level of detail.

To use milliput putty, you will need to mix equal parts of the two components together until is an even color. This material can then be shaped and molded using tools such as sculpting knives, files, and sandpaper. It can be smoothed and polished to a finish similar to plastic or metal, and it can also be painted or sanded after it has cured.

This sculpting material is a popular choice among hobbyists and professionals because it is easy to work with and dries to a hard, durable finish. It is also resistant to water, oil, and most solvents, making it suitable for use in a variety of applications.

There are several milliput types available, including:

  • Standard Yellow Grey: This is the original type and is ideal for repairing and filling voids.
  • Milliput superfine white: This type has a finer texture and is suitable for delicate modeling and fine detail work.
  • Terracotta: This type is the standard one simply tinted to a terracotta color, making it suitable for use in creating realistic rock and stone formations.
  • Milliput epoxy putty black: This type is simply tinted black, making it ideal for creating shadows and depth in sculptures and dioramas.

What's the Milliput epoxy putty curing time?

The curing time for this epoxy will depend on the size and thickness of the project, as well as the ambient temperature and humidity. Generally, it will take around 4-6 hours to totally cure at room temperature, and it will be fully cured in 24 hours. In warmer temperatures, it will cure faster, while in colder temperatures it will cure more slowly.

It's important to allow full cure before sanding or painting, as it will continue to harden over time. You can speed up the curing process by using a heat lamp or placing the project in a warm area, but be careful not to expose it to temperatures that are too high, as this can cause it to cure unevenly or become brittle.

After it has fully cured, you can sand it, drill it, or paint it as desired. This epoxy material is resistant to most solvents and can be painted with most types of paint, including acrylics, enamels, and oil-based paints. It can also be polished to a high shine using fine-grit sandpaper or a buffing wheel.

Mixing with other Epoxy Putties

It is generally possible with other sculpting putties, such as Green Stuff or Maxx Putty, to create custom sculpting compounds or to achieve specific properties or effects. However, it is important to keep in mind that different putties may have different curing times, hardness levels, and other properties, so the resulting mixture may not behave exactly like either of the original putties.

It is generally best to experiment with small amounts before attempting to mix larger quantities, as it can be difficult to predict how different families of putties will behave when mixed together. You may also need to allow the mixture to cure for longer than either of the individual putties, as the curing time may be affected by the presence of the other materials in the mix.

Mixing with plasteline

Plasteline, also known as plasticine, is a type of modeling clay made from a mixture of clay, oil, and a plasticizing agent. It is soft and pliable when worked, but hardens as it dries, making it ideal for sculpting and modeling.

It is usually possible to mix it with plasteline to create a custom sculpting compound. To do this, start by taking small amounts of each material and kneading them together until they are well combined. You may need to adjust the ratio depending on the desired properties of the final mix, with the recommended mix being 50% / 50%.

A potential advantage of mixing it with plasticine is basically the low cost of the mixture. On the other hand, modeling clay can help to make the material easier to mold, especially when working on large projects.

It is important to note that the curing time of the mixed clay may be affected by the presence of the modeling putty and that the mixture may take longer to harden completely. You may also need to allow the mixed one to cure longer than either of the individual putties, as the cure time may be affected by the presence of the other material.
