Featured Artist Jim and Kathleen Mazzotta

Featured Artist Mazzotta

Aves Featured Artist - MazzottaWe found out about Apoxie Sculpt  from a gallery customer of ours years ago. She worked for a movie studio out in Hollywood and said the crew used it for quick sculpting for set pieces or costumes when they needed a custom item quickly for a shot. She told us “You have to get this stuff!” We’ve found it’s an easy material to sculpt with. The cured strength makes it reliable and sturdy for shipping our sculptures to customers around the country.
