Alumilite Mold Putty (formerly Amazing Molding Putty) is a 2-part molding putty. Mix the two parts together to a uniform color and press an object into it. In five minutes, lift the ojbect out of the putty and you have a latex mold of the object. Use it with Plas-T-Pair (or an acrylic powder and solvent product like for fingernails or dentures), Plastic Paste, Sculpy, Milliput, wax, or just about anything that's soft or liquid and dries, bakes, cools or cures to a solid. In the example on the hospital page I show myself cloning a good finger from the hand of an undamaged plastic doll to replace the missing finger on another identical doll. It can also be used to make a missing button, a broken plastic piece from a walking mechanism, doll teeth, just about anything you have of which you could use another. Larger 1 pound kit: $30.00

Plastic Paste is another 2-Part Epoxy. Mixed, it has the consistency of peanut butter but in about 8 hours, it becomes very much like the hard plastic or hard vinyl doll medium. It's not at hard as the cured Milliput and not nearly as hard as the cured Plas-T-Pair and the bond is incredibly strong. Plas-T-Pair will repair a stress split under perfect conditions and with a brace but it cures too hard to sand into the surrounding hard plastic. This paste is perfect for these splits.
|$10.00 + S&H||Quick Compo is another 2-part epoxy. It's similar to Milliput but it's not as fine and does not mix with water when soft. It is great for filling holes and cracks in composition. Depending on how you work, the biggest advantage is that it sets up fast. So if there's a spot you missed filling, you can fill with Quick Compo and get on with your project in a matter of minutes instead of hours. For detail work and faces, the Milliput is best but for bodies, arms and legs, Quick Compo is a great option. 3 oz tube: $12.00 + S&H|

Sanding Pads (2 Fine and 2 Medium) Filling and painting are what gets the most attention in restorations, but the most important and overlooked part of the process is sanding. The difference between a clean, flawless restoration and one that looks like someone just slapped a coat of paint over a doll's problems is sanding.
These pads are firm foam rubber with a rough, nylon surface on four sides. You can bend or fold them for a good curve to get into areas around the top of the leg and they can be sliced with a bread knife to make 2 3-sided pads that can be folded into a point for really small places. Best, they can be washed out and used again and again. They leave no grit because there's no sand. 2 fine and 2 medium: $12.00

Makeup for Compo Dolls So often people send me dolls that have been treated with temporary craze concealers that have caused more problems than the doll originally had. I tell people to just use oil base paint to fill the lines and to wipe off all but what stays in the lines. The paint fills even the microscopic cracks and buffs the good surface to a lovely glow. They tell me they can't find oil base paint locally so I put this kit together. Kit contains three pages of step-by-step, illustrated directions, 5-2 oz bottles: 1 cleanser, 1 astringent, 3 bottles of oil-base paint: 1 white, 1 apricot, 1 peach beige : $45.00
