Product Type: Sculpting Material


Models like clay, tools like plastic, and finishes like wax.™

A Sculpting Revolution

Cx5 is a premium sculpting material designed to be used in place of sculpting clays, finish waxes, and prototyping plastics. It handles like clay when warm, finishes like wax, and is as hard as plastic when cool. Cx5 is the ideal material for every stage of your project, from roughing out and building up, to adding fine details, machined features and a high polish.

Do all your work, from start to finish, in just Cx5.

How Cx5 Works

Cx5 is a temperature sensitive material that behaves like clay, wax, plastic, and even paint at different temperatures. Because it can be used for every stage of sculpting it eliminates the need to begin your sculpture in a clay, create a waste mold, and pour a wax for final detailing. Cx5 is self supporting and does not need an armature, even at large sizes. Mold and cast your finished Cx5 sculpture in various materials.

 

Mix Your Own Medium

Cx5 is the hardest sculpting material available. It holds incredible detail and is idea for mechanical features and jointing. Cx5 has a very hard finished surface, and is polishable to the highest shine. Together, Cx5 and Cx5s form a complete sculpting system where you can truly mix your own medium.

 

How to Sculpt in Cx5

For sculpting, heat Cx5 in an electric skillet, slow cooker, double boiler, under a lamp or in a microwave. Cx5 is warm and ready to model at 125°F. Sculpt by creating a base shape and adding warm Cx5 onto it. For best cohesion, heat sections of your sculpture over an alcohol lamp (using denatured alcohol only) before adding more warm Cx5. Use traditional loop tools, rakes, etc. with metal tips, and metal sculpting tools heated over an alcohol lamp to define large forms. Heat 3M Softback sanding sponges over an alcohol lamp (never allow them to smoke) and use them to smooth the contours of the piece. Use a waxer with different tips for moving large amounts of material, and for doing detail work.
