Lo all, long time no post (or painting) will post my in progress whirlwind when it's done soon
Anyway to the question. I've been using GS for the first time recently, mainly for filling gaps as I can't seem to get the hang of working with it properly.
The consistency once mixed, is that of old tough chewing gum, it's very very difficult to do anything with the bloody stuff, even using the GW sculpting tool, water etc.
Reckon I've got a bad batch? Mixing it wrong? Any other suggestions?
Cheers as always
Keep working and needing it and it should become more maleable
Everything you have been told is a lie!
I highly doubt this is the case but it may be old GS partially cured and thus tougher.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
Storing Green stuff at below room temperature helps it keep in good shape. Either Frdige or freezer. If in the Freezer it will take a little while to defrost.
If you buy GW Green, then it comes in two strips one blue, one yellow, stuck together, cut this in half so you have the two strips seperate. Now you wont have to fiddle around cutting the middle bit out as its all cured together.
Heresy minatures sell Green stuff in two seperate lumps, store it in the fridge, and it will last for a long time.
I've hard a batch of it for gonig on... jeeze... like 6 years(!!) now. I kept it in the freezer most the time. The connection between the blue and yellow parts have turned to rock, but the rest is perfect. I just used it last night.
I kinda had the same problem. I was trying to make cloth and I put it on plastic with a few drops of water. After I went at it and made it look tattered it stuck to the plastic and streched it all out. I tried wax paper and was still having some difficulty.
What's a good surface to work on?
If you want to make it softer while working, then warm it up slightly - maybe by holding it next to a hot lightbulb. HOWEVER be aware this will shorten the time available for working, so don't do too much at a time.
Also, as NAVARRO mentioned, a slightly higher proportion of the Yellow strip will soften the mix as well.
Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?
while researching green stuff, one comment that made a lot of sense to me was to cut out the section where the two colours meet before you mix the two together. THe theory goes that because of the contact, that particular section has partially cured and will be harder.
