It comes in two rolls. One is the adhesive and the other the hardener. You just cut off equal slices from each roll and knead them together with your fingers or blend in your palm with your thumb. Since both parts are white, it's hard to tell when they're completely mixed, so the makers of Milliput recommend kneading for five minutes.

Ready to use, it has the consistency of Sculpy, but it sticks to surfaces so you can fill surface pits, shallow or deep crazing or even complete splits in compo or hard plastic or porcelain. It takes about three hours to harden so you have plenty of time to work. While it's soft, you can dampen your fingers and smooth it to match the surrounding surface.

Another thing it's great for is sculpting new fingers, toes, feet or even an entire part if your talented or have another on a different doll that you can use to make a mold.

It hardens like a rock and can be drilled, sanded, and even carved with a Dremmel tool.

On the doll above I pushed the Milliput under the crazed compo and filled whatever compo surface broke off. I smoothed it as much as possible around the ridges of the lifted compo. The next day I used a sponge sanding pad in medium grade and sanded the ridges to restore the contours of the face. Any small holes that the sanding uncovered, I filled with more Milliput and the next day sanded again. Then I painted with the air brush and used a fine sanding sponge between coats. After about ten coats of paint, I painted the features using the "Before" photo for reference and sealed with thinned varnish in the air brush. Then I replaced the eyes using the Milliput to hold the rockers. I put the front and back of the head together with Milliput, sanded the seam and painted and sealed it again with the airbrush, being careful not to spray the face.

Her original mohair wig was rotted, so I made her a new one of mohair.

While I was working on the head, a similar process was going on with the rest of the doll. Fill with Milliput, smooth, sand, and paint.

Milliput has some nice properties. It doesn't shrink as it hardens so the shape you sculpt is what becomes like stone. It doesn't pull away from hard surfaces so it's wonderful for filling. It's very fine so it can be pushed into craze lines and under cracked surface paint and keeps cracks from going further because it bonds with both the surface and the lifting paint. Once it's hard, it is waterproof, so moisture isn't the threat it is to compo, although it bonds and blends with the surface flawlessly. Below are some links to sights showing how it's used for all sort of projects and repairs. Now I'll be showing it often on the Hospital Page!
