Hi alice. Thanks fro the precisions.

Yes, the more I work with it, the more I realise that waiting time is an 
important factor in how precise we can work with the apoxie.

As for better fitting gloves, I  think it's a matter of trying many brands 
and many sizes. Some stores have samples, or give a pair away.
The gloves I tried this time were Vynil. I'm satisfied with their comfort 
(the best feeling ever, not much sweat, and no annoying powder smell).
But they are indeed just abit too large for me. The wrinkles get i the way 
of my sculpting. Maybe a size under, but I don,t much care for buying 
another box of 100 gloves...

I have Nitrile gloves at home, which I will bring to the work place the next 
time. Maybe they fit better.

Otherwise, we might have to learn how to make our own custom gloves.
I've been dreaming of a system that would have us dip our hands in some safe 
plastic, and that "skin" would dry on the hands in a minute.It would be 
strong and durable, but removeable.

I've been thinking of trying to locate "painter's glove" again, a liquid 
cream that is supposed to protect the hands against lots of harmful 
Although today i think there might be a risk of contaminating the clay
