Interesting -- I've always assumed that they would discolor, which I
also have seen, and I was told years ago that they will eventually
slump in the presence of humidity. I've never considered SLA as a
viable sculpture medium for those reasons.

Maybe an impervious coating would help with both problems; I've never
bothere to experiment.
