It does that? so how do you prevent it? Just make the detailing deeper? I'm new to green stuff.
When its soft, it's slightly elastic. What I do is to leave it for 5 minutes before I work on it so that it stiffens very slightly, then about 15 minutes later I'll come back to it and touch up the detail again before it finally sets.
On things like the armour and sword I'd finish off by just paring back the edges with a scalpel to get it nice and sharp.

I basically have a production line of figures, doing a bit of work on each one in turn and by the time I've got round to the first one again, it's ready for the next stage of sculpting.
