If you're worried about licking putty residue, you can spit in a bottle cap or similar and lubricate your tools from that.

Fuck knows man, sounds like something from a space marine novel tbh! Saliva is mostly water and various enzymes, it really shouldn't eat it's way though rubber!

I got this new set of silicone shaper tip thingies, are these good for sculpting? I am assuming they won't stick to putty either?

If it's something like these things then yes, they're quite good for sculpting. I find that a bit of lubricating dosn't hurt, despite the putty (almost) not sticking to them.

I've tried bits of greenstuff but the shitting stuff just sticks to everything but the pin I'm using for the arrow (yeah yeah water...), is awkward to position and is getting on my tits. Paper will just look wanky I'm sure. Anything better or tips on how the pro's do it?


For casting or generally? If the latter this is a great article. I haven't really seen it done better, although you may want to vary proportions to keep in scale with differently delicate manufacturers.

if for casting, add a big blob of green or grey stuff to the end of the shaft. let it settle completely and then carve/file out the flights. Only way i've managed to pull it off.

If I wanted to make my own stone wall to cast what is the best way to do it? I was looking at the (lovely) ones from Fenris and I am not even sure if they are sculpted or built up from separate pieces. I am fairly sure that anything involving glue and lots of bits of stone would end badly.
