Just finished a green stuff session and was wondering what everyone does with their left overs? I usually roll it up into little balls (I don't know what I will end up using them for but I have quite a few now), or imprint parts of my tau.
Yup, that is pretty much it...

Two droids walk into a bar. The bartender says "Hey, we don't serve your kind here.", so they leave.
i'm generally pretty good about mixing just enough so the biggest thing i can make is a small pebble but, when do i accidently mix too much i usually mold it into animals such as cats and giraffes then place them around my work area with other finished models
Sometimes I use it to make some rocks for lava bases.
I often have a few half-finished pieces around my desk, and usually use it for one of those. Particularly useful are scenery and vehicles.
For most scenery you can normally find a few cracks that need filling or smoothing, or alternatively you can build up a little around the base to represent either mud/earth build up, or fallen masonry from the destruction.
For vehicles, you can roll a very very thin tube, roll it up, and add it as a stowed rope. You can then add diagonal marks, using a sharp knife, to better represent the twined strands of rope once the GS has started to cure a little.
I try to have several sculpt projects on the go so if there is still time I can move onto another model.
If there isnt time I have taken to flattening it out into little sheets which I can cut out flat details, the up shot of thin GS is it bends enough to go round gentle curves without breaking. Previously I have used it to fill gaps in slotta bases or add little rocks and details to bases.
I also generally have a couple of things laying around that need filling or details adding. Which is handy, because I almost always mix too much. I have got a small collection of tiny GS balls, which will probably end up being sliced in half and used as rivets.
I usually just make the leftovers into the thinnest line I can manage. I usually find miscellaneous uses for the 'cable'/'rope' I made out of GS.
Recently, I lined an Eldar Warlock's cloak with it. Back when I played Chaos, I made 'rope' by wrapping two together and attached miscellaneous Hooks and other wicked items to the end for vehicle decorations.
