Can you sand it?
Thank you soooooo much, YOU ARE A GOD!!!
I was worried I couldnt after I just used a whole lot of it.
thank you for replying very quickly.
Didnt want to mess it up. If I couldnt sand it then I would have to be careful and take a long time making sure it was nice and even and smooth.
Heck Yes, just use Emery boards(the things people sand their nails with)

I've always gotten better results by sculpting what I want, as opposed to 'sanding down' what I want. Also, don't forget, you run the risk of damaging the piece, all it takes is one slip of that emery board across something you liked the look of to make you want to kill.Originally Posted by Catachan Devil
GS is much more workable when soft than when cured. If you really want to sand down your stuff, sculpt in brown Kneadatite, aka brown stuff, aka, BS. You can sculpt sharper edges with it, and it cuts and sands easier because it is harder when it cures.
Regardless of the medium, green or brown, sanding is usually pretty easy if you take the edge of a blade and gently scrape it across the surface.
You can sand GS, but make really damn sure it's hardened completely. Also, mixes with larger quantity of yellow compound dry longer and are generally much softer and elastic then 50/50 ones. This makes them less fit for sanding.
Definitely! Forgot to point that out!Originally Posted by the_fifth_horseman
Higher yellow mixes are better suited for actual carving as opposed to sanding, if you go that route. I'm a big advocate of "sculpt first time, no cleanup after" but let us know how the project goes! Everybody needs to find their own tricks and stuff.
I scraped off alot of the GS and sanded the rest and now it looks fine. Where do you get BS from?
