..and piece by piece, you can model your own figurine.. just have to wait 1 hour of drying time before adding a new piece..

Big thanks for this tutorial!!!
For sure this paste will end in my home some day, along with acrylic paints, modelling tools and some wire for strenght the internal fragile parts.

I'm interesting in know, how fragile is the final result? I remember that as a child I did a falconer with a gyrfalcon with Fimo, and finally the bird's body separated from the falconer's arm and both (spread) wings separated from the body too. I also did some birds at very small scale (a red-breasted goose and a saddle-billed stork) for put them in my mother's Betlehem portal, and finally both had broken legs...

Hie Pardofelis!..

 Well, if you glue each piece with fresh and wet paste well distributed (with just a food pick!) all around the dry previous piece, it will work, it will solid enough!.. even more than thin original Starlux pieces!..

  Of course, I have no actions in WePAM industry!..  but with this cheap paste, I saved many Starlux (and other!) figurines and I can buy very cheap broken others, to constitute herds, flocks and packs!..

  ..and no need any toxic glue or paste!(this paste is for little girls!).. my tools: my fingers like when I was a very little child at school! :)  food picks and a cutter to cut what I dont agree when it is dry..

  ..I never tried big scale figurines but I don't see why it wouldn't work even without any wire!..

 ..but one thing is good to know: during drying time, WePAM paste looses its water and a little volume, so you have to anticipate this,  and to model a little bigger piece than the one you want..

(sorry for my poor English, I miss words!)

One of the things this forum got me educated to, it was to admire people that is able of restoring figures, especially vintage rare ones. I was quite ceptic about having restored figures, it seemed not genuine enough to be considered a collectible. I was wrong, of course. Now I have a few restored figures and I was not the person who did it. A restored figure is surely much better than a figure missing entire parts. Thanks for your tutorial and I find it quite honourable that some figures are rescued and return back to its glory. :)

Oh, it's important to know that it looses volume! I want to made very detailed small figures (birds with sculpted feathers, fishes with scales and teeth, etc) so I will need more than fingers and toothpicks! Very Happy
Well, time will say. First I will buy done figures that I still miss, and after I will look for the paste :)
P.S. your English is good. Better than mine probably :)
