Took down the cold clay link. Looks like it wasn't selling. :S

I notice Sylmasta are now stocking Geomfix Designer Clay (Epoxy putty) which looks similar to Cold Clay though not having used either I could be lying ;-)

I have just started with Masqmini's BeeSPutty, after Peder Bartholdy recommended it, seems quite nice on first inspection. Going to get sculpting after lunch :)

Added Beesputty. Man, when did they make so many varieties? Last I noticed they were still trying to iron the wrinkles out of the original type.

Its still a pain in the ass baking it and forgetting to switch off the oven in time (ruined 3 sculpts so far...) They should sell it with a stopwatch..
But the material is quite nice :D

0_0 Can you bake it too long? What happens then?

I had that happen to me, though I was able to save the sculpt with greenstuff :)
It just got cracked here and there.

Cracked? Try applying watered down Milliput Superfine or Liquid green stuff.

I also have problems with baking FIMO, mainly because I use "owen" build from halogen lamp and tin can.

Cold Clay is back at Restoration Supplies! In all it's nine, glorious, slightly-cheaper-than-Magic-Sculp colours. Along with aSculpt, which looks like a similar product to that and Magic Sculp.

Looks like the entire Restoration Supplies site has gone kaput. :( I'll hang around to see if it's temporary, or a victim of the recession.

They're back! Cold Clay and aSculpt for all! Looks like they're also stocking Apoxie Sculpt, though I'm just getting a 404 page for that right now.

I've had a look over the list of UK shops. I've added a few, particularly for the new Fimo Professional list, and took a few down too. Some have stopped selling certain products, or stopped selling altogether, and some... well, who here wants to pay £15 for 50g of apoxie sculpt? (Or £6+ for 20g of GW greenstuff, for that matter)

On that note, if anyone notices a shop listed here, discontinuing a product or going out of business, please let me know here or in PMs.

Also, I've nipped out the Sculpey III list and Fimo Soft from the Soft/Classic list. This topic's more about good places to buy rather than which products to buy, and I like a good, extensive list; but on the other hand it can threaten to get too extensive with commonly-available clays. Fimo Soft and Sculpey III are hardly difficult to find, online or off, are not the highest recommendation for mini sculpting, and the Fimo list is going to dwindle as Fimo Classic gradually disappears anyway.

On that note, looks like EJR beads is having a clearance sale on Fimo Classic and Premo Sculpey to make way for Fimo Professional. The Classic's gone already but there are still some blocks of reduced Premo. She's having a regular sale on all sizes of Cernit, too. FYI.
