Finally venturing out and attempting a mod with a 4x4x2. I just finished with the apoxie sculpt. While I saw that other people had attempted this, I wasn't about some of the supplies that people had used. Does anyone have any tips as to what type of sandpaper and spray paint I should use to give it the right finish? Any other tips that might not be common knowledge? Thanks in advance.

If you run a search on the forums you will find things about paints and such ;)


As for sandpaper, I just plain sandpaper, finer and finer and the finest I can get in stores is 600, but higher would be preferable.


Good luck!

Make sure to get the wet/dry type of sandpaper, and sand wet. It keeps the paper from clogging and also keeps a lot of stuff you don't want in your lungs out.
