Iím in the process of remodeling my Demonprince (W40k) with greenstuff. The problem that Iíve run into is how to get a very smooth surface. Does a fine grained sandpaper work or is there other ways to accomplish it?
That, or if its still wet just use rubber gloves and vasiline for your tools and rub it down. But if its hardened yes sandpaper will do just fine
What does Slaanesh use to fish?
Haha, wow thats khorney
Doh, never thought about the glove.. I tried to do it with my fingers, but I couldn't get it smooth enough, and I had to fight with the finger print "issue" all the time.
Thanks for the tips, the sand paper will hopefully do the job.
i have read numerous things that say a wet finger is the best way to do it. Get your finger pretty wet and lightly rub across the surface. Personally i get it close then use a file to do the rest after its hard.
It takes only one well placed shot to destroy an army.
Out of preference i tend to use vaseline to smooth out the gs but water works as well - the advantage of vaseline is that once you have got it on your fingers you can keep working - but the downside is it can be hard to paint over without washing with soap and water.
those clay-shapers with the rubber tip work pretty well, no need for lube with them.. well not much anyways.
an alternative might be to go shopping for rubberized plastic toothpicks, theyre flat with a fine point and coated in a tough rubber, work wonders for fine details that the aforementioned shapers cant do.
your pharmacy should carry them, theyre for sensitive gums i think.
cooking oil works good as well, slightly easier to get clean than vaseline (if you dont mind smelling like a deep-frier for a bit)
spittle works okay-ish.
what else... hmm .. KY lube? should get the smoothest result ever!!!
i use a bit of ceram-wrap (sp) over my fingertip(pulled taught), dip in oil then smooth out.
Latex gloves should work nicely, just makes sure theyre powder-free.
If you don't want fingerprints, don't use your fingers.
With practice you'll be quite deft with tools.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
Hm... you could be hardcore and just burn off your fingerprints. Then you can rob GW and steal all of their overpriced packages of greenstuff :party2:
Another thing you might want to look into is gray stuff. It's called prosculpt, procreate, or something, but it is better for sanding and filing. GS is funky and flakes if you try to file it, while gray stuff is thick and gets extremely smooth with a bit of sanding.
