This forum is for asking questions and sharing experience on working with WSF.

I received my first prototype in the mail a few days ago and need to send it out to a client soon. This is a new material for most people and im sure everyone has questions about it.

Like can i sand WSF or will i break through the shell into support material?

Can i use red lead on WSF?

Is it safe to use paint thinners and acetone on WSF?

Are there certain types of paints that corrode the material?

What types of glues work best for putting WSF together? crazy glue, zap-a-gap, super 77 etc

Can you heat up WSF to change its form?

Can you boil WSF and bend it to change its form?

Please feel free to add your questions or answer any if you've come across them yourself.
