and Apoxie® Clay.
 Self- hardening clays and putties are valuable assets to any sculptor
or modeler.  I have experimented with several varieties from several
brands, and I can say with confidence that the products produced by
Aves® Studio are second to none.  They offer products that feature a
variety of working times and consistencies.  The detail retention that
Aves® products offer is what finally tempted me away from the
polymer clays that I used previously.  Simply put, switching to Aves®
has allowed me to produce higher quality work in less time.  For the
purposes of assembling and patching kits, Aves® products are
absolutely what you want.  They adhere to resin plastic exceptionally
well and provide a solid joint for the kit.  If you have further questions
about Aves® products or which product is right for your application,
