I want to make my father a cross for Christmas but I wanted it to be small and unique so I'm making my own substrate from Apoxie sculpt I rolled out 3 thin layers and cut the shapes out with a wallpaper blade. I cut a keyhole hanger into the 1st 2 layers and then layed on the last.
despite that I have learned it would be best to wait to move these around because they stretch - I wanted to take advantage of their stickiest stage to "weld" them all together as one piece.... it wasn't too hard to re trim and fix some afterwards.
to illustrate the stretching aspect the top most layer began to sag into the keyhole below and I had to turn it over and stuff some wads of paper in there to support and hold it open.
