    Need some tips on using greenstuff on this boar.

    I need to fill the gap of hair on this boar. Do I make individual strands of hair or what? perhaps I shouldn't be using greenstuff?

    You aren't putting the rider on his back ?? He has the tuffs of hair in his hand.

    Sure - a little greenstuff and then take your little sculpting knife (of course, everyone has one of those - or maybe I am just strange) and cut it up to blend into the hairs.

    For the small gaps from the head fitting, I just did some of these boars and on a lot of other models where there is the narrow gap, I do get a little lazy and don't want to mix or waste some greenstuff, so I just push some regular modelling clay into the gaps - give some texture, if needed, and prime and paint as normal.

    If your having problems making it look right, you might want to consider cutting all the hair off and sculpting it all as your own work.

    Just having a quick look at it, and not being all that experienced myself with Green Stuff, I think it's still achievable.

    Best bet would be to get your greenstuff, mould it on there in roughly the shape you want, then leave it an hour or two to harden a little.

    Then go at it with a modelling knife or sculpting tool or whatever it is you have at hand (remembering to keep your tool of choice wet so it doesn't stick to the greenstuff) to carve some lines along it, so it matches what already exists on the model.

    You could possibly achieve a similar result with Plasticard, should you wish, but shaping it might be a little harder.
