    how do you get your green stuff so absolutely smooth and clean looking?

    • Sorry about the long wait for this reply, it’s not a simple thing to answer.

      The key things are:

      Use a soft mix of Green Stuff (more yellow than blue). No waiting for it to firm up, use it immediately after mixing.

      Use a soft clayshaper (white or grey flat chisel head work best imho). A size 2 is best all purpose size for stuff like power armour segments.

      Lubricate your clayshaper and other tools. I like to use saliva but vaseline works well too.

      Use a gentle touch and use the clayshaper to spread the Green Stuff about, removing excess from the edges with a sharp metal tool. Always add more Green Stuff than you need and take away excess. This way the finished section you are working on (like a greave for example) is all done in one piece rather than built up by adding small amounts over and over.

      Finally be prepared to scrap what you are doing and start over if need be. Don’t just settle with your first attempt if it ain’t right.

    Hi there! Love your work. I know it’s been a while but I have a question that I think you could help with. You do your greenstuff in stages, whenever I try to add to an already done piece of Greenstuff it is really hard to get it to adhere to the dry area. any advice or tips?

    • Thanks.
      Hmm, not a problem I’ve ever had with Greenstuff. Do you use Vaseline as a lubricant when finishing off the first piece? That would keep it non-stick unless it is washed off later.
      Also, are you using the greenstuff right after mixing. That’s the time it’s at its stickiest.
      You could always try adding more yellow to the mix to make it stickier.

        I just use water as a lubricant to be honest, but yeah I have a tenancy to leave the stuff for 20-30 min before use after mixing. I will start using it straight away and also try with more yellow. Thanks for the advice and also the awesome inspiration!
