Using Repliscale tutorial
« on: January 18, 2010, 01:21:59 AM »
Here's a quick tutorial on how to use Repliscale. For those who are unaware, Repliscale is by far the best product when it comes to building Dinosaur kits as it makes a rubber stamp of the skin details. I use it for my Dinosaur works, but it can be used on anything that requires details being returned after losing them during the construction process.

There is a link at the bottom of the tutorial to the Alchemy Works site if you wish to get some.

That looks like cool stuff and would be great for scratch-sculpting as well I imagine. Thanks!

Be warned though, the size of the containers fool you. You actually get around 1/5th of the container worth of the stuff in each.

Will it adhere to surfaces so that one could make stamps? Like if I wanted to glue to to a dowel or something after it cures.

If you remove the shiny surface of the rubber, then using a strong CA glue should hold the wood in place. I just tested it out using Loctite 401.

Not sure if you have it over there but heres a link to a site over here about Loctite 401 : Link

Loctite 401 = best glue ever.
