I was working with green stuff for the first time last weekend and I had some difficulties getting the green stuff flow in the plastic. example the green stuff isnĀ“t on the same hight and you can see very good were the green stuff ends.
so my question is how can you get the green stuff flow over in the plastic and how do you let is look like it is part of the plastic.
DonĀ“t mess with the dicegod
I have no idea.
Then this is a completely pointless response - Wolfkin
I do however have som idea.
Any way, ive never had the privilage of having green stuff, ive only got bluetac painted with super glue, but i would imagine that it is moulded in the same way.
i use a knife to, well, err kinder, butter it on. you know how you spread vegemight right up to the edges of your bread? yeah, like that.
You were right the first time, you have no idea. Please offer advice only if you have the knowhow. There is little point in telling someone that Green Stuff 'might' be a bit like bluetac and that it is probably used in a similar way to how you make a sandwich!! - Wolfkin
Rule 1: Be very, very, very patient.
Rule 2: dampen the green stuff you are going to use.
Rule 3: smooth surfaces (itĀ“s correctly?), use tools like screwdirver (but the little one, for glasses and things lika those) and make several...erm...wipes
Rule 4: use little pieces of green stuff
DonĀ“t try to hide, i can smell your corruption...
also keep the GS and your finger/sculping tool wet, this way it won't stick to it
I've also had problems using green stuff to do anything more than fill gaps -- it's always just sticky and therefore very difficult to put any detail into it (i.e, if I do anything with a hobby knife, it just sticks to the knife, which obviously will not work...).
Does dampening the green stuff make that any better, or is there something else I need to do? Is it possible I'm just mixing it in the wrong proportions?
If the surface area is big enough you could wet the area and "pull" it with your finger. This should stretch it thin enough where it will blend better with the plastic. You can always sand it to get an even better fit between the green stuff and plastic.
Make sure you don't press to hard as that will likely leave fingerprints!

after re reading your question a few times, I can help you
The best way to make the GS blend with the plastic is to roll the two together, take a ****tail stick between 2 fingers and roll it along the join, stretching the GS out and thinning it so it flatens onto the plastic.
also as already said- use lots of water and be patient
hope this helps
mix greenstuff 50/50 most of the time, using slightly more blue if you want it to dry faster, slightly more yellow if you want it to be easier to skulp small details.Originally Posted by Sithlet
when working with greenstuff, use water or saliva to ensure that the GS, the skulpting tool, your fingers, and any surfaces the GS wil be touching are very wet, it stops the sticking.
this might help you as well
but the rule of thumb that i use is to only make up the ammount that im going to use and i tend to keep the bit that im not using at that particular time in a beaker of water, i also slightly oil my fingers as well
