For Science! Green Stuff Working!

Recommended Posts

See this post...

 

I just tried something new, but have talked about it here and there, about using Greenstuff to sculpt stuff that you want to paint, but  before assembly....

 

It seems to work!

 

Can't seem to get it to quote across threads....

So, I have heard and talked about covering a piece of a mini, jamming it into it's spot on a mini, after coating it with vaseline, so that green stuff can be applied and the details sculpted, while being able to paint pieces separately....

 

Well, it works!

 

I coated the bottom of the Big Gs feet with Vaseline, put some green stuff on the base, and pushed him down into it to figure out where to blend the thing into the base, and of course remove all the excess GS....::o:

There is still more stuff to do to fix the base where I cut the base away to fit his feet...

 

But that is for AFTER the GS dries for 24 hours....

I really like the concept.

 

Can you show us what the base looks like after all of the blending has been completed?  And, perhaps. after a base coat has been laid over the entire base?  I'd really like to see a "final product" before the landscaping is underway.

 

Really nice post.

The base will be treated as part of the WiP, and stages done bit by bit....

      With a bow...
       
      And a rapier...
       
      Hmm...
       
      Okay, well, that's gonna take some work...

       
      Let's start by cutting off her hands.
      And we'll steal this guys bow hand...

       
      And, uh.... I guess use a pin for the rapier scabbard?

       
      And she's gonna need a base. Happy Seppuku to the rescue! Mix up some green stuff... Blob for a hand, add the basket hill, arm guard for the bow arm...

      An Australian documentary about the Bristol Beaufighter serving in the South West Pacific during WWII...
       
      Interesting for an American to see something like this, as most documentaries I see are either American, or British....

      So....
       
      Back when I first joined the forums, I found a thread about a certain Goblin painting a limited edition Ral Partha figure that I happened to own, but had been sitting in a box for 15-20 years due to the 'I'm not good enough' syndrome....
       
      Well I decided that I Was Good Enough and set to work, as chronicled by this
      so as at the time of being a noob arround here, I was very encouraged by the multiple responses that I got....
      such as:

      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.
