Once the Apoxie Sculpt completely cures (24 hours), you can drill a new hole using a rotary tool. A rotary tool drills holes in beads, shells, plastics and wood. Place the tip of a needle file where you want the new hole then twirl the file so a small indentation/hole is made. This indent will give the drill bit something to catch on when you first start drilling, making it easier to drill the rest of your hole. When drilling glass, stone or other natural materials, it is best to wear eye protection, tie back long hair and roll up long sleeves. Hold the item in a shallow batch of water so the emerging hole can be flushed of debris and the drill bit is cleaned from time to time reducing friction and enabling the bit to be more effective.
