Green Stuff World Textures Rollers

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen the textured rollers made by the company Green Stuff World?   Came across them when I was buying some items to make bases.   Bought a few of them, but now I have seen how simple and quick it is to make bases am thinking I will buy the others when I am a little more financial.   Tonight pumped out 16 bases using the planks for rebasing some of the Rum & Bones stuff I am about to paint.  


Anyhoo thought I'd share the before and after pics.   Did a quick paint up of them to see how they would turn out. Just bases coat, washes and bit of drybrushing.   First one is meant to be frozen, but I thought it would work really well as lava.

I own a plain roller, An Aztec Motif Roller ( look at my Lost World / Tanith's Altar), An Egyptian one and an Greek one.

Marvelous stuff.

What size are the bases? I ask as the wood grain looks larger than I expected. I have been disappinted with the wood grain on my Happy Seppuku bases as well. 


 Nice painting on the lava base. It works really well for that.

The world of Green Stuff is a favorite among quite a few of us forumites.

They have way too much nice stuff... 


I also like that they've begun shipping the rolling pins in clear plastic tubes.

(They're also selling the tubes if anyone has old pins they want to protect.)


The only other product that is close to these in detail quality is the Basius Stamps, and most of those are limited to 50x50mm areas. These are rolls, so can make a long pattern.


Their Rolling Pins, the Roll Maker, and their 'Blue Stuff' reusable mould is my fave items from them.

I've looked at them and thought about buying, but right now my Happy Seppuku stamps are working fine for me.


If only I could remember which "safe place" I put the ones I didn't want to carry to paint days. <_<

They base size above is 25mm.  Fits perfectly into the usual black slotted bases that come with most minis.   Best thing is the lid of the tube is basically a cookie cutter.   Makes just the right size circle.  Last night in prep for rebasing painted Rum & Bones Second Tide minis, made 16 plank bases.  Was a little bored.  So thought I'd see how quick I could make churn them out.  Took all of about 20 mins.  Rolled out the fimo, cut the bases using the lid cookie cutter idea, 5 (maybe 7) mins at 175 degrees Celsius.  Bases done.  One of my kitchen appliances has a cutter that would probably work for the bigger bases.  Otherwise already told my Mum who is a chef I am going to raid her cooking tools for cutters of the right size.  LOL as an aside she wanted to offload usual cookie cutters on me.  So bases in the shape of stars and hearts?  YAY!


The plank one above is going to be used for a mini I am painting now.  Well not now.  But atm.  So will post a pic to give an idea of scale I guess.  


Was going to buy Basius stuff eventually.  But I think if I can get these rollers I might stick with them for a while.

I keep checking out their website and making plans. I haven't actually gotten anything, though (well, not yet, anyhow).


Nice work on the ice into lava base; it works very well for that!

      So, I'm about to start working on making some 3D bases of my own for my dragons (and hubby's too)...  Anyone have any pointers or tips on particular putted to use when coating stuff like cork to add more detail, or would there be much of a difference between say Milliput, greenstuff, or other things?   I ask as terrain generally doesn't require as much detail as a mini would, but it never hurts to get a few more opinions. 
      I do have greenstuff atm (and Aves Apoxie if this supplier I'm trying to buy some from sends me an invoice ), and might be ordering some other stuff, hence why I'm curious. 
      Love greenstuff for stamped or rolled bases, and gap filling (I suspect when I try sculpting I'll like it too, I'm enjoying how it behaves now that I've had a bit of time using it for gap filling and bases), but naturally I'm open to other options too.

      As mentioned on my previous post, that as aside from my Fire Giant Jailor WIP; I decided to do a few bases based on his for my Etsy site.
      Here's the second one:
      Broken Flagstone Courtyard
      Portal or Statuary Base
      Display Base


      You can find my original post for this on my blog:

      Hello community,
      I finally started preparing my bones 3 orcs and want to base them. I am wondering what base size would be the correct if we use them for d&d 5e ? I assume 25mm, but from the figure size it’s more 32mm. Anyone some suggestions please? Do you think 32mm would work as well with the d&d or pathfinder map tiles?

      Standby for massive dump in 3... 2... 1...
      Chopping this up into a few pieces for easy posting/consumption.
      Where I've been: Video games (Xumenicus#1118, if you're on Battle.net), bought a new house, running a fly fishing tournament for a treehugger non-profit, part-running my treehugger fly fishing non-profit local chapter, some other random stuff, and yeah -- here we are. I promise to paint more. Seriously. I just need to paint and sculpt more. I also need to fish more. And game more.
      I guess this is a thing: Apparently, I need deadlines in order to get anything done. This time around, since I couldn't make it to RC2017 (travel budget blown on BlizzCon), I aimed for a couple different challenges over at Massive Voodoo: http://massivevoodoo.blogspot.com/2017/07/mv-challenge-2017.html
      Objective: Make a water-themed base. No central miniature, no real focus -- just a base. And it has to be mostly water.
      Disclaimer: I'm not at all confident, or consider myself proficient with clear resin. I wasn't sure how good/bad/terrible this piece would turn out, so I didn't spend days painting this. It's got a few rough layers of highlights, a few rough layers of shadows, and basically I just wanted to turn something in, have fun doing it, and not stress about being good enough to win. The MV crowd is amazing -- I was just trying to get closer to touching the sun. :)
      Supply List: Wood, coping saw, cyano super glue, wire, green stuff, sculpting tools, paint, brushes, old brushes, Ease Release 200 Mold Release Agent, plastic Solo cups, nitrile gloves, popsicles sticks (fox mixing resin), Castin' Craft® Clear Polyester Casting Resin, small sheet of plasticard, duct tape, Tree House Studio Clear Acrylic High Gloss Coating spray, sandpaper (100, 200, 400, 600, 1000 grit), Woodland Scenics Lichen, Woodland Scenics Water Effects, fly tying thread, level for leveling the curing area
      I did a few sketches one night so I could figure out what to do, and this is where I ended up. I thought about doing a waterfall, or something cooler, but I was kind of in a time crunch, and only had 3 weeks, especially since things are still calming down from moving.

      Picked out a piece of wood from my scrap pile...

      Went to work with a coping saw until I had a pleasing, interesting shape...

      Learning from past mistakes with trying to get green stuff to adhere to wood, I opted to seal the wood this time. I used cyano, and 2 old brushes. It actually works really well as a wood sealer ( http://www.woodworkersjournal.com/cyanoacrylate-everything-you-need-to-know/ ), but you need to be extra careful due to the amount being used -- more of a chance to glue yourself to something, glue to project to something, and the fumes will sneak up on you real quick, and burn your eyes or nose. Fair warning. Be careful.

      I opted to use green stuff for the project. That's where my comfort zone still is, even though I'm trying to work more with Beesputty and ZBrush. The bit of twisted copper wire there is to support an additional column. Do an image search for "limestone underwater caves", and you'll see where I'm going with this.


      A little more...

      Starting the tree. Do a search on "limestone cliffs trees roots", and you'll see where I'm headed even more.
