Working with Blu-Stuff

Finally was able to get this introductory video made. It’s as simple and straight-forward as it can be. In future I’ll try and do more videos showing how to more adventurous projects. Please feel free to leave comments and let me know if I left out something really obvious or what you’d like to know more about.

    Fantastic video there, must be a really useful material, I’ll definitely look it up if I have the need in the future.

    Cheers

    Like the video, but one question would be what is blustuff exactly and why is it better than making a greenstuff mold, or using epoxy putty?

      Blu-Stuff is a silicone based putty for mold making that cures in minutes, where as Green Stuff and epoxy putties are sculpting materials. You can mold with Green Stuff but it takes a lot longer, requires a release agent, and rarely picks up detail as well.

    Well, I have to say to all people that still wonder whether they should give blu-stuff a try to not think twice. If I say that it improved by 100% the quality and speed of my conversions, it would still be an understatement. If you are into the hobby, you NEED to try this material.

    One more question about blu-stuff. When cured, is it harder or similar to EasyMold (that one purple+white)?

    • http://masteroftheforge.com Lamenter

      It’s firmer than EasyMold. Easy mold is a great product, especially if you need a flexible mold (ie: you want to “around” a 3D shape). Blu-Stuff is better suited to casting epoxy putties like Green Stuff because it’s much firmer and not oily so it’s easier to fill the mold and generally produces better casts.
