No reason you couldn't, I'd think.... Especially with the sulfur-free clay. I'm not sure how the XTC might affect the clay, but if you just use it first then wash up your print well before modding, I can't see why that wouldn't work. :rolleyes Any idea what you're going to mold with?

Clay and PLA have no issues with body double, that I can say for sure. I havent tried with XTC-3D but given that it doesnt say "dont use with platinum cure silicones" and is from smooth on, Id say you are safe.

I plan to coat the entire helmet and clean it up nice, once that is done i wanted to use the clay to modify certain areas. Not sure what i will use to mold, but i want to cast it in the onyx from smooth-on. I may go Friday to pick it all up...GM

Nice man. Yea the XTC-3D product is basically epoxy. I believe it should be fine.

Let me know how you like working with that Clay... debating on which clay i want to work with for an upcoming project.

Thanx LM for the video. Saw some areas where i can enhance the technique. The video i thought too many parts at once. Impatience is a killer, but needed if you want top results. The clay i had researched and found this to be the best fit for me. You can remelt it and use over and over again. Going to pick up everything in the morning, then make a go with it on the weekend. Again thanx for the video buddy...GM

I used the XTC 3D for a Bleach/Ichigo Hollow form mask and it turned out very awesome. However, I used a bit too much of it and it smoothed away some details. It works very awesome, but if you put it on too thick, it will smooth away details that you might not want gone.

Other than that, it's really awesome, and really hardens up the print as well. It made a huge difference in the feel of the mask in your hand/on your face as well.

I couldn't recommend it enough.
