WIP - Playing with Green-StuffTuesday, April 3, 2012
Recently I've not had much time to work on painting, but I've managed to get some time in doing some more sculpting with green-stuff and milliput. It's been interesting trying to learn how to some little bits of sculptingwith both, as each have their pros and their cons. I'm starting to find that the yellow-grey milliput is too soft for the kind of detail sculpting you can see in green stuff, the milliput likes to break apart easily and stick to my fingers. I do find it useful for filling in gaps and setting up basic shapes that I can then use green stuff on. Saves me from using the green stuff for those basic tasks.
For example, I'm working on some wolf heads to set up on my dreadnoughts and instead of using a bunch of green stuff to blob together into the shape of a wolf head, I started off with some milliput to create a basic shape of a wolf's skull. From there I was able to flesh out a basic structure with the rest of the milliput and then start with the green stuff to get the final structure and details on the wolf head. Unfortunately, I apparently forgot to take pictures of the initial skull, but here is what I've gotten so far with the two wolf heads.
The second one came out better as I took more time on working with the shapes. I also took it by two parts where I worked on the muzzle first then finished the head after that part dried. It came out with better results.
