I had some left over MILLIPUT which was 2014 vintage and should have been thrown out, then I saw a project on here a week or so back and decided to try and get some value out of the pieces. After a lot of rolling and pounding I managed to get some layers plyable enough to use. Used black and white on the hollow form and Terracotta and silver yellow on the bowl, not a great result but good enough for me to order some fresh MILLIPUT and will have another attempt shortly. This sets hard over night and I used a very sharp skew chisel to shape it and finished the sanding with 600 grit. The wood for the hollow form is Huon Pine and Red Gum for the bowl, the finals is stained pine.
