Has anyone tried this product or similar. Seems to be having all the qualities of natural rubber and none of the downsides. Wonder if you're able to use the build up method with this. Look it up on YouTube as well.

Really no one!? - I'll try contact them to get a test for review.

Also StopmoNick and blueworm - it would be nice if you could try it out - apparently it is very similar to latex, air-drying and water based, except that it UV resistant keeps in shape and flexible for decades and has a really long shelf life. But I can't find anybody using it for stopmotion, especially how it will behave, using the build up method and skin application - could be interesting to see.

Take a look here: https://youtu.be/bT1ovzedGIg ;

I just looked at it.  Shore A Hardness 38 - could be good for hands, which I build up with liquid latex, but not soft enough for casting heads or whole puppet bodies.  I prefer something softer than the Shore A 10 of Platsil Gel-10.  But it might work instead of liquid latex for build-up methods, without breaking down with age as fast as natural latex.

For me, the other problem is that shipping from the US to Australia will usually cost more than the product does.  Shipping tp Sweden, for Bluworm, would also add a lot to the cost.

Same shipment/tax for Denmark, and with breaksit even from England. Thanks for the technical breakdown, of the firmness. For comparison what are the typical numbers for latex and does it come in different viscosities as well? I'll look up Platsil gel 10. For now, I'm using a transparent Cardip to seal the ultralight foam clay from the Australian manufacturers (you might be able to pick that up cheaper than me) to keep it from getting too rigid and cracking. But that's xylol-based, and therefore not very nice to handle, compared to water-based materials. That's why the neoprene specs got me jumping. Can you build up with Platsil or is it activated with a hardener? I'll look that up!

Oh, it's like the dragonskin a two-component silicone. That's going to be really hard to sculpt with from my experience it would most likely be a disaster almost impossible to control, even while casting. Precise amounts in such a scale, humidity, temperature, work time, etc...

All that is what I'm trying to avoid.
