Anyone know of a decent brand of easy to use, self-drying modelling putty? I'm putting together some of these newer 40k buildings (and doing a bit of converting as well) and I'd hate to use 3 lbs of greenstuff to do it. Is there a putty or clay that would work that is cheaper and easy to get a hold of? I'd like it to be paintable and slightly sculptable.
Thanks if anyone can give me names or brands.
It holds detail and is relatively cheap compared to green stuff... it also benefits from drying increadibly strongly and dries in air in about 3 hours at general room temp... or slightly warmer in less than 2 hours, in an oven at 160 degrees celcius in about 10 minutes.
Dries to about the same strength as plastic and is supposed to be easy to get ahold of in the states compared to over here in the uk.
Also, where are you getting greenstuff from? Dont get it from GW as they are simply buying it from other sources and repackaging it at a higher price.
If anyone believes on telekinesis, raise my hand!!
Well, I do get my greenstuff farely cheap (about 1/3 the $ at least) but I use so much greenstuff with other sculpting and converting that I figured if there was something cheaper, I'd probably be better off using that, especially in bulk.
I've never bought this stuff before which was why I was looking for brand names or stores to looking (hobby store vs. hardware store) I've looked in my local hobby store, but the people working there are clueless, and I can't tell from the packaging what I'm getting exactly. I've just seen tons of clay which doesn't really every set up thoroughly.
