Now, there are a few downsides. The stuff isn't cheap, but for small applications it goes a long way. Also, if you're trying to get a smooth finish, this might not be the stuff for you. It's got some texture on it's own, and you're not going to get a satiny finish with it. Once it's dry there's no sanding or carving possible.
Now, as Levar Burton used to say on 'Reading Rainbow,' you don't have to take my word for it. Laura Salvaggio over at Theater Helper has posted a good overview of Jaxsan 600. Click here to read it.
Also, the fine folks at Plastics Coating Corporation have a known history of sending samples to theater professionals. They've figured out that we use it, even if they aren't entirely sure what we do with it. You can visit their website by clicking here.
Where to buy it? Well, you can buy it directly from the company, you can buy it from RoseBrand, or you can look around online- a few other places do carry it.
I have some examples of Jaxsan use in my fake food work below (you can click on the caption to see the full post if you like):

So how about you? What do you use Jaxsan for? Send photos!!!! If I like the photos, I'll post them, and you can have the prestige of having your work displayed on a blog that is read by tens of people daily!
