Whatwhat's greenstuff tips and tricks @ 2009/05/31 19:32:46


Post by: whatwhat


Ok, so in this tutorial I am going to show you some tips and tricks with green stuff to help you convert different models. In this example I am going to be building my company champion for a space marine chapter I am building.


Tools
Ok So to start off with you’re going to need some tools. Firstly you need your sculpting tools, in my opinion you don’t need fancy specialist ones I just use and old compass and something from a women’s nail care kit I got hold of. Basically, something pointy and something to smooth. Together with that you will need some green stuff, some milliput (or other solid drying putty) a knife of some sort and some lubricant. I use some old massage oil but Vaseline or other oil would do.




Robes

Ok so firstly I am going to be making the robes for my model. What I have done firstly is create a base for me to sculpt on with miliput. This dries rock hard after a few days so I will be able to push and press as hard as I like with the greenstuff without having to control it from the back. When you’re doing this be carful not to cover any detail you want showing and to leave enough room for the green stuff to go on top.



So after that is dry mix some green stuff and rol out a shape rougly the size you want one of the folds or creases on your model to be.



Now place that on your model in the position you want.



Start to build them up with a rough idea of how you want the fold to run.



Ok now you have the base work done you need to start smoothing your folds to make them look more acceptable, for this we use our smoothing tool.



Remember not to push too hard or press against the putty and just to gently work it into place by multiple, gentle strokes against it.



Hopefully it should start to come along a little something like this. You can always take some greenstuff away if you feel there is too much or add some if too little.



Take a look at how folds normally work on your clothes and on pictures to better get an idea of the realism. And keep a good thought on how easy it will be to paint also.



Once the mainstay of the smoothing work is over you can use your other tool to start sculpting smaller detail. In this case I have better defined one of the creases at the top.




Rope
Ok now I’m going to add some rope as a belt, this is fairly easy.

First of all roll out a length of greenstuff half the thickness you want your rope to be.



Now wait until that is slightly dry (the importance of which comes later one) and fold it against itself.



Now you want to twist it to make a rope like texture. Be carefull not to stretch it (this is why we let it dry a bit as it is harder to stretch), stretching it will make it uneven and look off. Twist it in different areas to get it looking even.



All you have to do now is put it in place like I have done here. Notice I have also extended the robes and added the bit to the torso, this has been done using the same method as before.




Chains
Ok so now I need to decorate my champion’s shield so I am making a small chain, my example is going to be very small but you can make your chain as big as you like with the same method.

Firstly rollout a bit of greenstuff to the thickness you want the chain to be and cut it to size.



Next, put it in place where you want it on the model.



Now you want to got your sculpting tool and poke holes along the length of the chain…



Again once that is done, use your tool to poke and pull at the sides and inside the holes to give them more of a rounded shape.



Once you have that you want let it set hard for the next step.

After it is dry roll out another length of green stuff slightly smaller in thick ness. Now carefully press that into the holes on your chain so far.



Once you have run along the length of your chain you can cut off the ends and you should end up with something like this…




Purity Seals
I also want to add a purity seal to the shield. To do that firstly I flatten out a bit of greenstuff then let it dry slightly, this mean you can be more brutal with it later on, which is handy when your making it off model. Make sure your surface has a bit of lubricant on it so you can pull it off cleanly.



Next, take a knife and slice into the greenstuff. Cutting two rectangular shapes which will be the parchment part of your seal. Once you have done that pull the unwanted greenstuff away.




Push that into place on wherever you want it to go, remember you don’t need to wrry about messing up the end as the seal will cover this part. So if you want to spike it in order to pick it up do so. Once that is done get your other piece and place it on top.



I leave that to dry completely then so I can play a bit more with the seal without messing it up. So get a small ball of greenstuff which you can press down as your seal.



Use something of suitable size to make a hole in it, as you can see I’m just using my same tool as this is the size I need.



If you want to create the small cuts and roughness on the seal like you see with GW’s versions I use a knife and cut gently around the seal.



Purity seals are great for all sorts of things, you can use them to add more decoration, cover up things you don’t want people to see or just to add more to a blank space, like my example I made bellow.



Ok that’s my shield done…




Hair

Hair is a fairly difficult thing to get right and is also an important part of the model, most people will look to the facial first as it is a natural mechanism being human.

So to start with I have added a head, in this case it happens to be bald but you can shave another head with exiting hair down if you need to.



Ok so firstly apply rough amounts of greenstuff to the area where you want the hair.



Now use your smoother to smooth it more towards the end result, then take or add any bits you may need. The second picture shows me pulling away some unwanted greenstuff.



Now, with some lubricant to aid, you want to stroke your geenstuff to get the wanted texture. Here, I’m going for a half slicked back look with hair falling other the back of the implants.



Keep working the greenstuff using whichever tools give you your wanted effect. For example here I wanted the hair falling over the back to look smoother and less messier than the hair on top so I have used a different tool.

The main thing to worry about is the amount of greenstuff you have on your model. Keep looking at it form different angles to make sure yur not over compensating on one side.



The same technique can be used for facial hair. Here I have stroked the greenstuff into different curves and to create the ends of the hair I have pulled away greenstuff to leave points.



I’ts always worth going back to your model when it’s half dry as you will be able to apply more pressure when the putty has hardened and do things you weren’t able to before. Sometimes you might find it advantageous to do one part of the hair after the first part is done and set.


Pole Detail

One fairly simple trick I am using here is one I thought up to better aid the creation of pole based weapons like halberds and such.

To start off with bet your pole then a bit of greenstuff.
Roll that greenstuff out so it covers the pole evenly. Now wait for that to set.



Once it has set, slide it off. Now you can cut whatever length of it you want and place it back on the pole to whatever effect you want. You can vary the thickness by rolling more greenstuff over it in the first stage.



Here I have used this technique to add detail to my champion’s halberd.




End Result


So I have now finished and am fairly happy with the results. I hope at least some of that may be useful to you. Thank you for reading.

Beautiful finished product, and it definately gives someone whos never done any sculpting before a ton of confidence to get in and give it a try.

My only question is; What does the model look like from the back with the clay you put down for the base of the loin cloth? Its hard to get perspective with the shots provided. Is it something that has to be treated or prepared for Prime/painting differently? Or is the shield there to screen the foundation?


Whatwhat's greenstuff tips and tricks @ 2009/06/11 22:09:18


Post by: whatwhat


Hey,

No the back doesn't suffer because of the clay, I know its hard to get an idea of what it looks like from the back but it's fairly thin. This is one of the main reasons I was using miliput, as it dries very solid after a few days meaning I could use a very thin layer and it would still do what I needed it to.

Milliput you can paint and prime same as greenstuff/plastic/metal. Other putties/clay I guess you would have to look into.

The shield is on the side of his leg and isn't meant to hide anything. If I'm honest, I didn't show the back as I haven't finished it yet. But don't tell anyone that.

edit: actually I shall try and get a pic for you tomorow if you want.

edit2: Screw tomorrow, just took this...



As you can see I haven't done the green stuff yet. But I hope you can se that the way I have laid the milliput it's not hindered the look from the back, and I can still sculpt my creases over that. ...when I get round to it.

Hey congrats on the dakka win! We were neck in neck for the first part of it but you finally pulled ahead in the end.
Now you just need to show how you would sculpt muscles. (so I can steal it to reposition my 3x be'lakors.)
This is by far one of the more helpful and informitive guides I've seen.

Thanks for the perspective shot! I'm kind of glad you didn't finish the model right off, seeing the other side of the first step was really helpful. Your not kidding when you say it only takes a thin layer of the stuff to make a stable sculpting base. .

Also congrats on your win!

Hey i'm actually wondering if anyone would know a good way to make a combi melta out of green stuff, from a twin linked bolter, chaos terminator variant. any tips would be greatly appreciated, thanks


Whatwhat's greenstuff tips and tricks @ 2009/06/17 07:40:03


Post by: Lord Kaesar II


Well, not really priorly researching the bolter in question, i'd say start with something like a paperclip for a strong internal structure, and then add gs consistently around it till you like it, then getting the trademark melta holes while the gs is still wet. But that's just my figuring


Whatwhat's greenstuff tips and tricks @ 2009/06/17 15:04:41

You can cast using a pen-cap, it isn't all that hard to get a nice shape just make sure to coat the green stuff with petroleum jelly before inserting it using a paper-clip armature into the pen-cap. As long as you applied the petroleum jelly generously the pen-cap should easily slide off.

For smaller guns simply use a coffee straw (one of the tiny red ones, and yes they are very free ) filled elmers glue. Stick the straw into a clump of white-tac putty so the glue can dry. After the glue dries, prep some green stuff and make cardboard thin sheets out of it. A lump the size of the end of your pinky should give you enough green-stuff pie crust to fully coat an entire coffee straw with some to spare for details. Make your melta nozzle marks with anything that suits your fancy really. You can use old pens that are held together in a PVC pipe frame, you can measure it and do it by hand, etc...
After you have done the nozzle marks, trim the pie sheet so it is 1 inch shorter than the coffee straw, it should be around 4 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches wide. Take the now dried glue coffee stick and place it along the long edge of the prepped green stuff. Roll the green stuff around the coffee straw, making sure your melta nozzle marks are visible on the outside. Trim the excess green stuff and clean the seam up with a rounded metal tool coated in petroleum jelly.

One stick can make at least 20 melta nozzles, the rest of the gun can be framed with either a tiny bit of aluminum foil using a pair of needle nose pliers, or made from pen-caps (if you can find ones small enough to make such tiny guns). After making the frame for the gun simply clean up the appearance with some green stuff; I would recommend brown stuff for very detailed machinery bits. Green stuff is no where near as good at being sanded and filed as brown stuff is.

If you want to, you can make a mold using a mix of 1 parts milliput to 1 parts green stuff. Just mix the two together after independently mixing them, stick the mix into a small metal jar-lid (leave the rubber lining in the lid). After making the surface as even as possible by using some water to smooth the surface take your scratch-built gun and lay it on waxed paper, put petroleum jelly on everything but your eyeballs . The gun to be molded will need a built in port using a sprue bit attached to the handle of the gun or something if you plan to use the mold for a "liquid" cast. Now simply cast one side of the gun, making sure to get a very solid fit in the green stuff. Wait around 6 hours at least then cast the second side using the same method.

You can use this mold to cast with just green stuff, simply take a clump of green stuff, coat the mold generously with petroleum jelly, and press the green stuff into shape with the mold. With a bit of practice you will easily get the hang of this.

OR

Simply do something like this... http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/239553.page

Krimmsonscurge, as far as I know milliput goes by the same name in the US. You might have to look online as I do as I don't know of any local suppliers where I am.

Green stuff is what GW call kneadatite, they sell overpriced versions of it in their stores but if you want to save yourself some cash search for kneadatite online and you can get some better deals.

Excellent Tutorial. I could use this to creat extra long purity seals.
Maybe make them larger for dreadnoughts and other vehicles.

THANKS for these tutorials i plan to do them!!!

BTW i made mini molds for little details like the skull and crossbones on a bolter or lascannon, and skulls from bolters. i jsut took a GS lump and pressed it on it, so its pressed in there, petroleum jelly would work to prep the mold so i can push GS into it without the GS sticking?

I think its milliput. Its not overly hard to come by, hobby stores may have it otherwise just search for retailers.


Whatwhat's greenstuff tips and tricks @ 2009/09/04 09:00:36


Post by: whatwhat


Bruiant is correct. It's Milliput, it's pretty handy as it sets harder. You can also file and drill it after it has set. You can also mix it with greenstuff to make it easier to sculpt with. Hobby stores may have it, I get it online.

Get some green stuff and flatten it...


Cut it into a square...


Poke holes in each corner to make a window shape...


Cut diagonaly into each corner and pull away (or don't if you want a square shape)...


Done. If you want to ad the gem, poke another hole in the middle and wait untill dry, then add a small ball of GS.


As you can see by the size of my finger tip in one of the photos this is a fairly small version, I have made larger versions with the same method however.

I was having a chat with some friends online and I sent them to this page and the tutorial was gone. Said it was deleted by poster. So that's when I commented. But seems like everything is back up so no prob

It's such a great tutorial that when people ask how to sculpt cloth I send them here and they get to see the rest of the goodies in this thread.

how long does it take for GS to completely dry? and how long before it becomes the "semi-firm" condition described in this forum?


Whatwhat's greenstuff tips and tricks @ 2010/02/05 18:36:51


Post by: MajorTom11


micaphone, from what I gather its 20 mins - 45 mins mark that is the semi firm stage, with it being effectively too dry to work at about an hour to an hour and fifteen...

someone should back that up though, i'm no expert, just been looking into this stuff.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Speaking of which -

WhatWhat, first, thanks! Awesome info man.

My main question for you would be to ask you to describe the lubrification process a bit more. Many tutorials simply mention the use of Vaseline or water or spit, but don't describe the quantity, when to apply, whether cleaning it up is necessary before paint etc etc.

I have pretty steady hands and am confident with them, but the biggest problems I have encountered with GS is controlling what it sticks to consistently.

Any loob info would be great! lol


Whatwhat's greenstuff tips and tricks @ 2010/02/18 19:52:58


Post by: whatwhat


I use oil which is pretty much the same as baby oil or massage oil and I use it sparingly, you only need enough to let your tool run along the putty without gripping it. Same goes for vaseline but I find that too thick personally, and messy. You will need to rinse your model before painting it though since oil and vaseline tend to stick around.

If it is just copying them then yes, but if it's your own unique pattern of that weapon then it's fine. I could make a machine gun thing with a longish barrel and throw what looks like an exhaust at the end and call it the Dante pattern Meltagun and it would be all good assuming that they don't already make the exact same one with the exact same name.
But even then the name doesn't matter unless I was to sell it, but if I did I couldn't even call it a Meltagun, maybe a Magna-gun or something like that, but it would have to look nothing like any existing ones anyone has a trademark on. You're free to replicate your own unique ones though.

Also great tutorial whatwhat

You want milliput because you can cut and file it afterwards. But mix it with a bit of greenstuff since it doesn't take shape to easily.

Flatten some out to the thickness of your weapon's blade. Wait for that to harden a little then get a knife point and carve the shape (ie and axe head, sword blade etc.) into that flat putty. Then you want to wait untill dry and hard then run the back side of a blade along the edge of the shape where you want a sharp edge, just like you would were you sharpening a real knife. Then you can add a haft, hilt etc. later.

It's actually different. It sets much harder and I believe it has some form of aluminium in it so it can be used for hard edges easier than Greenstuff.

Great tutorial, I found it useful and easy to follow. I've also had some recent experience with Greenstuff sculpting and converting, I created a YouTube video tutorial and posted it on dakka not so long ago. Here's the original post along with some tips and tricks I'd like to share with you:

Using a piece of clear acrylic as your work surface. You can get this at most craft stores or even at your local DIY home improvement stores. It's a nice smooth surface that can be lubricated easily and is portable. I use a smaller square that is slicked to flatten out my green stuff into nice smooth, thin sheets.

A clay scraping blade, a thin , very sharp blade I use to lift gs off my work surface and make nice clean straight cuts.

Alternatives for lubrication: Canola, sunflower or safflower oil work well. I also use a product called Coolslip sold from a jewelry making site (cooltools.com) that works for me. I usually apply a little to my acrylic surface so it doesn't stick

Rubber clay shapers are a great way to expand your tool arsenal.

Super glue helps to tack Green stuff to your model. Its especially helpful when the gs starts to firm up and your trying to tack on a strap or section of a robe.

Some good alternatives to milliput for understructures I've found are Aves Studios Apoxy putties. I use Fixit sculpt which dries even harder than milliput and can also be mixed with GS for hard edge applications. And if your in a hurry and don't want to wait a day for milliput to harden try using the Faststeel epoxy putties found in Hardware stores. It hardens rock hard in 5 minutes but it has only about a 1 or 2 minute working time so you have to move fast with it. This is the same stuff sold as Instant Putty and Stick Putty. I just used it last night to sculpt the robe on this Crusader I'm converting from a Scout/Cadian:

This probably varies fronm country to country; but in Australia I get mine from a store called back to base-ix that have a website and an ebay presence. ~110 grams (36 inches) for $14.95 free postage in Aus.

America, somewhere like maelstromgames could be cheaper or the like.

I've also heard cardstock can substitute the milliput first stage on the tabard, although I am yet to test this for myself.

in reply to my post were i would keep you posted about my order of green stuff. well it was fantastic when that parcel came in the post and opened it up. there were 36 and a quarter inches.
so i mixed some and made a stick figure ready for sculpting and was also amazed how it set. i will definitely buy more when get the chance as it mixed well and set well + with some two part green stuff you get a core were the two colors meet, well i didn't it was like really fantastic and beat the scraps i had left from years ago, ere's a vid ~8
on second thoughts scrap the vid, well i mite edit this and put one in or a link hmmmmmmmm
