So I wanted to add some more fungus slime like you stance to my Broodlord base. Worket great. But I want to stiffen it a bit. Is there any way to do this?

I applied a second layer of UHU Glue to it. But it is stil quite fragile. What can I paint it with to make it stiffer? Other suggestions are welcome.

Having done this in the past, it's nigh on impossible (at least in my experience) to have UHU be completely solid. I recommend going down the UV resin route for slime like that, especially for gaming pieces where the rigidity would be more beneficial. For display, it doesn't matter all too much.

What about slapping PVa glue on topp of it? It gets fairly hard. I am not so dependent on the colour. I will be painting it in a yellow fungus colour in this case.

Could you cover it in clear UV resin

Huh. Perhaps. Is it exspensive to get?

Not really, look at green stuff world, you have to buy the UV torch aswell but your looking at less than £10 I think
