Add water. Knead like dough. Sculpt. Place in your garden. Cures permanently stone hard. No firing. No Molds. No Kidding.
No need for a Kiln! Simply keep your sculpture wet/moist and under plastic. 80% of your ultimate strength will come in the first 5 days. If you are making outdoor statuary and want the best possible longevity? Go a whole month!
No complicated Armatures! -You can literally use anything as your armature. In the first day of sculpting our product has no tensile strength. A scrunched tinfoil base on top of your armature provides the PERFECT grip and environment for a curing Pal Tiya Premium sculpture.
Little goes a long way - Pal Tiya Premium is the decorative sculpting layer on top of your simple armature.
Fabulous cure profile
DAY 1 wrap your sculpture tightly in plastic (shopping bags are perfect for this) so the water in it doesn't evaporate.
DAY 2 it will be the consistency of a soft wood and you may continue to sculpt or carve on your work. When wrapping it up on the second day, place wet towels on it and then recover with plastic.
DAY 3 it is the consistency of hard wood and can still be worked as such. Wrap again with wet towels and plastic.
DAY 4 it feels like stone and may still be 'just' carve-able.
After this it will be time to bring out the power tools because it will be solid!
Can be painted with water based concrete stains or exterior paints after 5 days.
Can be added to days, weeks, even months later by scoring the surface with a fork, re-misting with water, mixing up a batch and adding on.
Ideal for ALL outdoor conditions – freeze thaw tested for sustained wet weathering and freezing conditions.
