I am a pretty decent painter, but am only now starting to get into converting. I tried using green stuff, but it was a bloody mess! ANyone got some tips on how to use the stuff without completely destroying whatever you try to make?
Thanks in advance

You always think you need alot but you don't.
What are you making anywho? If you want flames I just stick them on the object and twist a few times and than make a little curver in the greenstuff so it looks like the fire is going out of the gun (or machine) and than rising up to the air. I find that if your making a big object you can take your fingers and rub it over te spot where finger marks are. If you do it right you somehow smooth the green stuff, it's kind of weird when you think about it.
I don't use tools but they are soppose to help out alot also.
Anywho, what are you making? Bionoics, extra limbs, filling in gaps?
GW put up a really nice Green stuff tutorial a while back; greenstuff tutorial
It's useful, shows you the basics. One tip from me: use saliva to give moist to your tool/tools, it's a bit 'slimier' then water and doesn't leave much crap like vaseline.
And practise, lots of practise. Sooner or later you'll be sculpting a model from scratch!
There's not much to do other than learn by trial and error... A rule of thumb, however, is to make sure that your tools, fingers and green stuff are wet at all times...
