These sanding sponges, used in conjunction with an alcohol lamp, are an indispensable tool for hot-sculpting Cx5. Hot-sanding techniques are used for knocking down large areas of rough sculpture and blending forms together at both large and small scales. Ideal for smoothing and shaping the largest forms and the smallest details.
These sponges are heat resistant and can be gently heated over an alcohol lamp, however the manufacturer 3M did not manufacture them for this purpose. Customers assume all risk when using sanding sponges for hot-sculpting. Only heat the grit side over an alcohol lamp, never the soft backing of the sponge. Never heat a sponge up until it smokes, and always make sure to use caution and have a fire extinguisher near by when working with open flame.

For domestic orders you can choose between USPS and FedEx rates, unless your order is over 70lbs and must be shipped FedEx or freight. You will receive an e-mail with a tracking number when your order ships.
For international orders you can also choose between USPS and FedEx rates, unless your order is over 70lbs and must be shipped FedEx or freight. ADVISORY TO INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: FedEx always provides reliable tracking, but the only USPS shipping option with reliable tracking outside of the United States is Priority Mail Express. You will not be able to reliably track USPS budget services like standard Priority Mail or First-Class Mail once your package leaves the United States, and Adam Beane Industries, Inc. cannot be responsible for packages lost overseas. We strongly advise FedEx or Priority Mail Express for international orders. Note: USPS Priority Mail Express is NOT currently available for shipments to Russia, Singapore or the Ukraine. We apologize for the inconvenience.
We are able to ship to U.S. Military APO/FPO addresses. Similar to international orders, FedEx always has reliable tracking, and for USPS only Express Mail has reliable tracking information outside of the contiguous USA. We will send an e-mail with a tracking number regardless of the shipping option you choose, but cannot guarantee the availability of tracking information if you select USPS.
