Questions about Sugru Answered
Until finding this site a couple of weeks ago, I had never heard of sugru. Then when I first saw it mentioned here, I think the name put me off - I kept thinking sugar craft / marzipan. Anyway, after looking around the site a bit more thoroughly, I've since discovered that this product looks extremely interesting and something I definitely want to try.
Which leads me to a few questions.
Is it available in shops, or do I have to order it online - more specifically, if it is available in shops, where in Australia would I get it?
One use I saw for it was to take the place (sometimes) of poly clay in my modeling. One method I use is to make a ball out of foil and cover this with polyclay. Then after cooking, I cut a small area out of the clay (usually while it's still warm and not quite completely cured) and pull the foil out. This leaves me with a hollow vessel. So I'm wondering if I use Sugru, would I be able to cut a piece of the model out (maybe before it hardens completely) and will I be able to remove the foil or will the sugru stick to the foil.
Another question. I see that the coloured sugru can be combined to create new colours. Has anybody tried successfully using paint or some sort of pigment to colour the sugru?
