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 ::P: ), 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.

To fill LARGE amounts of gap, of course, you'll probably want to build things up with foam board or whatever other -- presumably cheaper! -- materials you might have to fill space.

 

When it comes to the detail work on the surface, I prefer to use two-part epoxy putties such as Magic Sculpt / Magic Sculp (WESCO), or Apoxie Sculpt (from AVES Studio) (with "creative spellings" as indicated).  All three of these putties -- well, honestly, I'm not even sure if they're actually DIFFERENT from each other in any way.  In basic form, they come in tubs with one being labeled "Part A" and the other being "Part B."  One is a mid-tone grey, while the other is usually a grey-tan color -- though I've gotten varieties of Apoxie Sculpt that come with dyes mixed in with the grey-tan part.  (Beware!  Those dyes are POTENT, and can make quite a mess.  Especially the black.)

 

As near as I can tell "Magic Sculpt" and "Magic Sculp" come from the same manufacturer -- it's just at some point they decided to play with dropping the "t," and yet I can find suppliers who carry the stuff with one spelling about as much as the other.  Not quite sure what the deal is there.

 

Locally, I get Apoxie Sculpt from a company called "Reynolds Materials."  I've also seen it in Amazon, but I prefer to support local suppliers when I can (because I'd rather my local suppliers not GO OUT OF BUSINESS and thus deny me the option to go aisle-browsing and to ask questions to store staff).

 

Whether it's Magic Sculp(t) or Apoxie Sculpt, you mix the two parts together largely as you would with the green stuff, but it's much cheaper by the ounce.  Once you apply a bit of putty, it's possible to smooth out the surface with a bit of water, and once it hardens you can file or sand it down.  My preferred method, however, is to make texture stamps out of Japanese "plastic clay" (the same stuff as the pricier "Instant Mold" sticks), damp the stamps in water to serve as a cheap "release agent," and then stamp the surface of the putty with faux boulders, cracked pavement textures, or whatnot, in the process of obliterating any fingerprints I may have left while kneading the stuff.  Then, I can go in with my tools and try to transform it into crumbling stone block ruins, the occasional fallen log, or whatever else it is I'm trying to suggest on a large base.

 

The two-part epoxies are also a lot better for making shattered ruins.  When hardened, they're a bit more solid and rigid than the green stuff can ever manage, so if I want to make, say, some broken pavement or maybe a broken statue or whatnot, I can sculpt it in the putty, let it fully harden, stick it in the freezer for a bit, then actually break it.  I'm not sure I could manage the same thing with the green stuff.

 

Actually, nowadays, I use the "grey stuff" routinely for custom basing and gap filling far more often than I use the green or brown stuff.  For really FINE work (sculpting hands, faces, horns, tiny details such as leaves), the green or brown stuff is all-around superior (and with a little bit of "give" so it's less likely to break), but the grey stuff is far more cost-effective for larger and more solid structures.

For bases I usually Master Plumber's Epoxy Putty (True Value or Ace Hardware stores); re, it sculpts nicely, is easy to get a texture with, it can be sanded/drilled, & dries in about 5 minutes.

For large bases I use it over an insulation foam base. For really large things, like trees & towers, I make the basic shape out of floral foam sometimes in conjunction with shaped aluminum

foil then I cover it wit air dry clay (DAS is my favorite) & sculpt details.

This a photo stage I have underway to use as an example of the air dry clay:

This is primed:

If you have any questions, I would be delighted to answer them.

I use Magic Sculpt on anything needing sculpting on a scale any larger than a 40mm base.

 

Best stuff there is. Sculpts like clay, sets like plastic.

I have found that I like milliput best for bases because I can smooth it with my fingers and water, it takes texture nicely and you can sand and drill it after it sets.

Definitely a good tip, and what I was planning.  That would be a LOT of weight on a base if pure putty were to be used, not to mention I don't even want to know how expensive that would get!

The dyed Aves Apoxie was tempting, but given that I intend on painting and basing things, I figured such wouldn't be of much use.  Glad to read that there's an additional reason of it being even messier to avoid the coloured ones ^_^

 

Magic Sculpt has been tempting, especially since I like the fact it comes in separate tins ^_^

Oh trust me, I TRIED to find somewhere local that carried... SOMETHING other than small strips of green stuff or Tamiya putties.  Called (or visited) every single hobby shop in town...  Not even Milliput is carried, which is odd.  Nearest place hubby was able to Google (since he uses different search terms than I do) was a store in Calgary...  A store that will only let you put a single stick in your cart for some reason.  After all of that searching, I wound up saying screw it and ordered it from a company in Ontario, three provinces over, or about 2/3rds of the way across the country.  I won't mention how terrible the "deals" are on Amazon Canada, but I will say that ordering from the Ontario company I wound up choosing is $10 cheaper - with tax and shipping - compared to the list price on Amazon Canada, and that's with shipping that almost doubles the price!  But it'll get to me in less than a week ^_^

 

Most of the other stuff it's looking like I'll have to order in from GSW, since there aren't really that many suppliers that carry any of the two part epoxy putties for some reason here in Canada.

Interestingly enough, cheaper is kind of what I was looking for...  Basically similar properties, but I'm a lot more willing to use a good amount of a product if it's half, or even a third of the cost...  And I don't mind losing some of that resolution for detail that greenstuff has, doubly so since I don't plan on having super detailed terrain - if it'll hold the detail from a Happy Seppuku stamp or GSW roller, I'm more than happy enough already.  Perks like being able to work on it for longer, or even breaking (ESPECIALLY being able to break it) are definitely nice things to have on the table.

 

I've seen some interesting things done with shattered/broken milliput to say the least.

Those are definitely some delightful photo stages...  Ones I hope to someday be able to have something similar (of my own theme) that looks half as good ^_^

 

Insulation foam...  Hadn't thought of that for use on a 170mm oval base, but it definitely fits my two main criteria of "lightweight" and "structurally solid"

 

Air dry clay I'll have to consider and look into, although I am curious how room humidity affects the curing of such - it's insanely dry where I live.  Does it also fully cure after drying?  DAS is one of the few (no baking required?) ones that are stocked locally (the other brands being Fimo, Sculpty, Super Sculpty, and Modge Podge, but pretty much all of those require baking to cure)

Will definitely keep such in mind, doubly so since I was planning on picking some up on my next GSW order anyways.

Definitely some good points for me to keep in mind, especially the sanding and drilling parts!  To confirm, are you referring to milliput standard, or one of the other ones for basing?

I have only used the standard and the terracotta. I did not notice a difference, other than color.

Had an additional question come to mind regarding this...  I'm guessing you're referring to Apoxie Sculpt and/or Magic Sculpt alongside some of the other two part epoxy putties you mentioned for being able to freeze and then outright break it?  ^_^;;;;  This broken effect is one of the things I definitely want to be able to do for some of the bases I'm looking at!

DAS doesn't require baking. I let it dry for a day before painting; I also do a light coat of Krylon Workable Fixative to make sure the paint doesn't soften the clay.

Plumber's epoxy putty works just like Milliput, but it dries much quicker & costs less.

The dyed Aves Apoxie was tempting, but given that I intend on painting and basing things, I figured such wouldn't be of much use.  Glad to read that there's an additional reason of it being even messier to avoid the coloured ones

^_^

 

The main use I found for the black-dyed Apoxie Sculpt was back when I was doing "pony conversions" a long time back.  I think there's another Reaper thread here somewhere, but basically I was taking some 2" tall PVC "My Little Pony" figures, and using some putty to convert them to resemble various conventional fantasy archetypes, along with a few "bits" for accessories.  Some of them I repainted at least partially, but for most of them I wanted to keep the original "MLP" look, especially about the eyes.  Well, the trouble with that is that if I'm ADDING putty to an already-painted figure, there are going to be recesses in the putty that I add where it would be hard to reach with a brush.  With a putty that's light-colored or even grey, if I can't paint over those areas, the figure will end up having an unfinished look -- it will be obvious where I couldn't reach with the paint -- but if I DO try to probe a brush down there, it'll inevitably splash onto the bare plastic of the original PVC figure -- and probably deep enough that I can't just scrape it back off with a hobby knife.

 

Therefore, I found it useful to apply the black-dyed putty.  Any recessed unpainted areas would therefore be BLACK, and that's typically not a bad thing for a recessed, hard-to-reach area on a miniature.

 

I don't usually work that way, however, so that was a very special case.  The dye from the putty worked against me as well, as it would tend to dirty up the plastic of the PVC ponies, and require extra care to clean up.  So despite its utility in that very SPECIFIC application, I doubt I'll ever buy the dyed Apoxie Sculpt again -- I'll just stick to the plain variety.

 

And I don't mind losing some of that resolution for detail that green-stuff has, doubly so since I don't plan on having super detailed terrain - if it'll hold the detail from a Happy Seppuku stamp or GSW roller, I'm more than happy enough already.  Perks like being able to work on it for longer, or even breaking (ESPECIALLY being able to break it) are definitely nice things to have on the table.

 

It definitely takes detail from stamps.  In addition to my makeshift "plastic clay" stamps, I've picked up a few odds-and-ends (usually parts from broken toys in thrift stores) that have interesting textures that if inversed can make interesting textures in putty.  If I force the putty into a mold and allow it to cure in place (rather than just "stamping" the surface and then pulling the stamp off), the detail can be remarkable -- even to the point where if it's pressed against a perfectly smooth surface, the cured putty will take on a shiny, glossy sheen.  Doing this tends to be harder on my "molds," though, when pulling them apart, so I routinely keep a "master" of my interesting textures, and periodically have to make a new "mold" out of the plastic clay.  (The same would be true if I were making resin casts and so forth.)

 

I haven't quite figured out the working time for the putty.  I probably should work with it and time myself.  I would say that after about an hour with the Apoxie Sculpt or Magic Sculpt, it's solidified enough that I can't really knead or sculpt it per se, but it's still pretty soft and easy cut or carved into.  I've sometimes deliberately shaped the putty, then allowed it to PARTIALLY solidify, so that I could then bend and warp it while still keeping its texture and finer details.  I can typically put putty into a press-mold and take the whole thing out after 4 hours or so while keeping its detail, but I wouldn't try sanding or drilling it until it's had a full day to cure.  If I want to do "broken pavement" effects, I can do that after about 4 hours or so.  I'll have to find some pictures of a Relic Knights figure I painted and custom-based for a friend, where I used gritty sandpaper to texture some putty, carved an "Eye of Ra" into it once it had cured in place a bit, then broke it in several parts and reassembled it later (slightly offsetting the various "fragments") so I could make the look of some sort of pseudo-Egyptian ruined floor.

 

I've used air-dry clay at times as a "base" for a project.  It works well as the rough interior build-up (that you then apply putty to before texturing and detailing the exterior) for a "master" item that you want to be durable and have some weight to it, that you might be making molds off of, but not so much if you're concerned about light weight.

Thanks for so many great tips ... cant wait to try some of the mentioned products out ... 

Glad to hear the thread has been of use!  I've personally used GreenStuff as well as Magic Sculpt now, and have some Ave's Apoxie Sculpt to try out the next time I do terrain. 

 

I really really like how the Magic Sculpt handles, especially for smoothing, but I also prefer how Green Stuff is ready to go the instant it's mixed (even if it is rather sticky). 

 

In short, like others have said, it all depends on what you're doing with it but I suspect I'll wind up liking both, doubly so now that I'm starting to work on a few extra things so that the mess is more contained ^_^

      About
        This project aims to expand the Ulvheim ruin into a full featured ruin city for your home 3D printer. You can already download the first two releases from thingiverse for free. There is also an earlier release with smaller houses, also available for free. Click the image to see them.
      Previous Ulvheim releases The pledge rewards are STL-file downloads. I will share the files with Dropbox and the download will be available for years. If you have access to a 3D printer you can print as many copies of the models as you like. You can also vary the scale for more variety. Any type of 3D printer works but FDM is the most economical. Most models will fit inside a 120x120mm print bed. Printed parts can then be painted.
      The separate pieces fit together using a clip, also printed. This way you can build several different configurations with the same printed parts. You can of course glue it together if you need extra stability.
      Clip system I have been making 3D printable terrain since 2016. I have done one kickstarter before. All files from that kickstarter are available in my store. But read on to the pledges before you buy anything there. I also have a Patreon page and all models done for that is released for free on thingiverse. This includes the previous three Ulvheim releases.
         
      As base goal, I will create these expansions that are compatible with earlier Ulvheim ruins (type B).
      Base goal 1 - Roof set
      This set gives you the ability to create roofs on your buildings. Not everything has to be ruined. You can with these models build complete buildings, from the smallest shed to the largest castle. The roofs will build up like stairs. There will of course be options for half ruined roofs.
      The roofs will be made to fit the Ulvheim A buildings. This is the smaller complete buildings.
      The images below is only very rough sketches showing what is possible. The base goal does not include roofs for L-shaped or T-shaped building. Nor is it possible to put roofs on the hexagonal tower etc.
      Whole modular roofs Modular roof ruin Base goal 2 - More wall variations
      Nothing beats variation and more options. Two new basic walls with lots of ruined options. One solid style and one arc style. Below are some sketches of possible layouts. The final layout is not decided yet.
      Solid wall sketches Arc walls sketches Base goal 3 - Corners for round towers
      Three new types of corners. With these you can build hexagonal, octagonal and decagonal towers (6, 8 and 10 sides). You will be able to build really high towers. There will be ruined options.
      The base goals does not include floors or roofs for these.
      Hexagonal and octagonal towers Base goal 4 - Horizontal ruins
      The solid walls are made into ruins where the cuts go more horizontal. So you can build a long jagged ruin wall. There will be a couple of variants, from the available solid walls. there will be transitions from whole walls.
      3 solid walls made into horizontal ruins These are the pledge levels.
      Ulvheim supporter
      If you just want to cheer me on. I will send you a bunch (5) of Terrain4Print stickers. I will also create a unique sticker for this kickstarter and send you a bunch (5).
      Ulvheim worker
      If you are on a limited budget and only want a limited selection, this is for you. You will get the base goals and about one third of the unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads.
      Ulvheim settler
      This is the complete Ulvheim download at a reduces price for the first backers. You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads.
      There is a limited number of these so be quick.
      As a special thank you I will also send you a bunch of stickers.
      Ulvheim burgher
      This is the complete Ulvheim download. You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads.
      Ulvheim necromancer
      This the complete Ulvheim download plus all my old premium files (from the shop). You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. As soon as the kickstarter payments are processed you will get a download link the the premium files. These are STL-file downloads.
      Ulvheim architect
      If you want me to create something custom from your specification, this is for you. Together we will work out the details. It can't be something huge or overly complicated but expect a handful of models. For instance, wall tiles with a special symbols. A couple of special statues or gargoyles.
      The files must match the general Ulvheim theme.
      I prefer to make these models available to Settlers, Burghers and Necromancers too. But if it is something special you want exclusively, it can be arranged.
      If you take this pledge, contact me and describe what you have in mind. This way we can agree on a reasonable level.
      As a special thank you I will also send you a bunch of stickers.
      Add on: Stickers
      I will create a unique set of stickers for Ulvheim. Supporters, Settlers and Architects will get them for free.
      Workers, Burghers and Necromancers have to add $10 to have them. Simply add $10 to your pledge. I will sort it out manually after the project is done. You will get 5 Terrain4Print stickers and 5 Ulvheim kickstarter stickers.
      There are lots of more stuff to make for this. This project will have stretch goals. The more pledges that come in, the more stuff will be made. The first three stretch goals are decided already. When they are unlocked, there will be more made available if there is enough interest.
      Since I reside in Sweden and use SEK (Swedish crowns) I present stretch goal as % instead.
      Stetch goal 1 - Battlements 133% (20k SEK)
      If you want to make a castle type building, playing siege scenarios. This will make it possible. It is basically a low wall with a strip of floor and battlement fitting around both convex and concave corners. The sketch below shows a corner piece for a convex corner. There will of course also be ruined battlements.
      Stairs made will fit against the battlements.
      Battlement sketch Stetch goal 2 - Windows 167% (also for workers)  (25k SEK)
      Two new walls with smaller openings, like windows. This is a sketch of one of them. It will print in two parts, without support. It has a big arc. Inside it a thinner wall with two smaller arcs. The inside of the smaller arcs is open to make windows.
      Windowed wall Stretch goal 3 - Rubble piles 200% (30k SEK)
      Eight piles of rubble, big and small. Stones in various format, pieces of wood, broken statues etc. There will be round piles and also piles with one or two flat sides to fit against walls and corners.
      Two piles of rubble Possible stretch goals
      If the three stretch goals above are unlocked, we will have a vote on the next.
      Big set of stairs more elegant Floor set with wooden planks instead of stone Pillars Walls with door openings Relief walls Small balcony (from single wall) Big modular balcony Interior balcony Wall fountain Wall statue Wall with big gate Modular foundation to put everything on Cemetary set with walls, gate, tombstones and mausoleums Risks and challenges
      I have been creating 3D terrain for quite some time, including a previous successful Kickstarter as well as my many Patreon projects. I feel I have always delivered what I promise (and have often over delivered), however this is not my full-time job and so there exists the possibility that full delivery might take some time if all the stretch goals are unlocked. My aim is that the models will be delivered as soon as they are ready - so base goals should be on time with any of the work-in-progress stretch goals being released piecemeal upon their completion. 
      Personal/work commitments are the only real challenge, but I have a very caring family that fully supports me and understands my passion for producing my 3D creations.

      Just noticed this KS was posted here. Only 53 hours left....

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wowbuildings/wowbuildings-further-space-adventures-3d-print-stl/description
       
      Here we are folks, WOWBuildings is expanding further into space, with the infrastructure now for several types of scenarios, this KS will be a mix of vehicles and Buildings so you will have an even bigger range of choices for your tabletops. all will come in STL format and cuts will be made where needed so boot up those 3D printers once again and jump on board for what hopefully will be a great sack full of goodies to enjoy.
      I am adding a couple of special adds that are for personal print use only as a little treat for you top end backers, all files will be initially 28mm scaled (but slightly over scaled to allow for GW sized figures) and optimized for 15-32mm scales so hopefully something for all.
      Again human based faction designs for this KS with other races in the pipeline if all goes well, so hello again and as usual keep the feedback coming and if you want anything specific added then just ask, if it can be done it will be so
      Stretch Goals as you see will start at £1000, and £500, but this time i am toying with adding some £250 jump points too here and there to add to the fun.
      I have tried to keep the pledge level prices as low as i can as well including the licence which is an absolute bargain price for this KS as a thank you for continued support and to help with those after Xmas blues.

      Several friends helpfully pointed out that before I started throwing wild ideas at Ma'al's base, I should probably practice them somewhere else first. That base is on my February list, so I gotta get practicing!
       
      Blightfang:
      - Completely covered giant base.
      - No integrated parts. I chopped 'em off.
      - Water with a "live" edge!
      - The first dragon I owned, blessed upon me by my first Box of Goodwill group, and a perfect fit for a Silversage dragon.
       
      Narthrax:
      - Plain, round, smaller base.
      - Rocks from his original base are staying.
      - Probably no water.
      - He's just plain cool. He's gonna be my Boelen's python!
       
      I used PVA glue to put the cork together, and hot glued everything to the bases. Thank you for your sacrifices, peanut butter and pickle lids!

       
      I fell in love with Paepercut's youtube channel after @Clearman mentioned it in my Ma'al thread. Y'all. That guy is SO COOL. The vast majority of the things I'll be doing here are from his videos. And if I don't think they are, they probably still are because I'm forgetful like that.   Onward!
       
      Actually. Onward in a little bit. I gotta go check out the nearest store and see if they have distilled water for the next steps. Be right back!

      Corthon's Color Changing Carpet   Javeere Jungle Tiger Rug
      Javeere Jungle Tiger rug. Javeere was the last of the most dangerous dire jungle tigers. He lived his live quietly in the forest unrivaled in power. His reputation grew until the evil orc Muurg heard of his existence. Muurg was a terrifying and evil poacher who collected rare pelts from his victims. Muurg sent 100 of his best men and laid an intricate trap to ensnare Javeere the Jungle Tiger. Caged and bound, Javeere was brought to Muurg's lair as a trophy. In the cell next to his was a druid Antharc weakened by his years of imprisonment. As his last dying breath, he bound the spirit of Javeere with his fur forever. When Muurg slaughtered Javeere the next night, his ego full, he walked on Javeere. Immediately the rug came to life ensnaring his captor and tearing him into pieces. Now, Javeere is bound forever to his rug, the last flickering memory of his kind. Javeere seeks to destroy all evil in the world and will bind himself to good adventurers if their cause is just.
