It's easy to add any type of medium to apoxie-sculpt. I use dry tempra, pastel chalk, or even paint to my epoxie to help cut down on painting.
As far as paints go reference helps you out there. Good reference will aid you in the colors needed here. I use flesh,purples, browns, blacks, reds, and white to achive the many different colors they have.


By the way

It's not part of your question and Mohr jawsets have been used by thousands of us for years, but when it comes to black BEARS, Buckeye Mannikins markets the greatest invention since the microwave: MOUTH CUPS. They are already painted and take all the guess work and misery out of mouth work. McKenzie is now marketing forms that have lip and mouth SETS that all the interior work is done through snap together parts with special Mohr jawsets. Pretty soon, I hope this miserable job will be eliminated with such innovations.
