    Flames

    Does anyone have any hints or tutorials on sculpting flames with green stuff. Specifically a large gout of flame coming out of a seraphim flamer.

    Thanks

    Make a long cone like thing, with an outward bulge at the end, and carefully, using a sculptor's tool, scoop small amounts of the Green Stuff out until you have the desired flame look.

    That's how I see it, mate.

    Some people twist strands of GS together first in order to get the basic shape first before they start scooping parts out.
    And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
    One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.

    Thats pretty much it.

    Make a cone out of green stuff to your disired width and length. Modleings the green stuff around a bit of wire helps a lot. I've found, the flames look a bit better if you give the green stuff a little twist, it just adds a little more texture. Carefully start to scoop out tiny amounts of green stuff and VIOLA!!!

    How long do you let the GS set before you try to 'scoop it out'? Whenever I've tried doing anything more than pushing the stuff around, maybe cutting it, I end up tugging -all- of the GS out of shape. I think that I'm keeping my tools wet enough, but I may not be. I've been wondering if it's more of a timing issue than a lubrication issue.

    Yes timing and lubrication are both vital in preventing tugging...


    Sorry...

    Yes, but how long would you want to let the GS set before you start trying to cut/scoop/carve it up for the flames?

    I'm by no means a GS expert, but I read somewhere that the timing actually depends on the mixture of the two colored strips you used to make the GS. Because one is the hardening agent and one is something else. Or something.

    You get the general idea; it really depends on how much blue and how much yellow you used.
