Monster Clay uses Another popular use for Isopropyl Myristate is that it's a very effective non toxic solvent for Monster Clay. It does tend to dry slower than other typical more hazardous products uses, solvents like Mineral Spirits for example, but it will dissolve the clay effectively. Use the IPM sparingly with a soft brush and move on to different ares as the solvent evaporates. You can also use IPM to smooth and polish Monster Clay projects to a glass-like smooth surface - just start with a smooth area like top of a head. Apply a small amount of the isopropyl myristate to a clean paper towel, or cloth, and rub in a circular fashion until the clay takes on a shiny surface. USE SPARINGLY! IPM, being non toxic, and not flammable has many advantages over typical solvents like mineral spirits.
