Alternatives to greenstuff for sculpting

I use greenstuff frequently. Was wondering if there's anything out there better than this. There has to be. I don't like the stickiness of greenstuff. Any suggestions?

Aves Fixit Sculpt is great! I bought 1lb of it a few years back and it just seems like it lasts forever!

NVM just read that it does. That stuff sounds pretty good may have to give it a try

Here's an example of something I'm working on using AVES Fixit Sculpt.

Fix-it sculpt is fantastic, but it is not quite as pliable as Greenstuff. It bonds well, and it dries hard. I would not call it brittle, but it has no give in it, so thinner pieces will snap if you put too much pressure on them. I also find it is much easier to work with than Greenstuff in terms of sculpting, carving, putting line in it while it's still in the workable stages. They also sell a solvent you can put on your tools that won't get caught in the soft stuff and make cuts and sculpts smoother.

There is a sculpting compound called sculpt- it that works well for adding details. You can buy it at hobby lobby.

Aves is pretty good but it doesn't have a lot of give when it cures so just be aware.

Aves Fixit Sculpt is what Sith_Fire use.

I use both at the same time. Greenstuff for the foundation pieces, fixit for small details. You can also mix the two compounds together to get the best of both worlds.
