Nice fish Goblyn!

@thebadeye:

green is green stuff also called duro or kneadatite from sylmaster, it's a two component sculpting putty which cures over time after mixing the two components ( yellow + blue ). so selfhardening it is.

the sand or skin coloured putty is FIMO, you can use it for as long as you like and it won't harden until you put it into the oven and bake it. It's an oven hardenening polymer clay.

both materials take detail quite well, the main reasons to choose either this or that is mainly due to stability reasons etc. i.e. the hands completely made out of fimo would be complicated as the material would easily break. So you either use the green stuff for a stable underconstruction and apply some FIMO on top of it ( like on the sand colored hand I suppose ) or you make it completely out of green stuff ( the other hand ). Plus pointy bits out of green stuff tend to be flexible and not break off, FIMO gets brittle after baking and is prone to break if treated rough. So for gaming models FIMO is not a good option.

I hope this answers your questions.

New to the forum and new to sculpting with these materials....

Question: what is the trademark name of the green material and the white material?

Question: Why the green where it is located...looks like base buildup

Likewise: Why the white/sandy material where it is, assuming crisp detail capable?

Oh thanks! Will look into the Ender series then, saw the movie already and I think the books might be actually pretty good from what I got from the movie already. As for Starship Troopers, read it and liked it. Definately recommendable.

Cheers!

the blood is too red for my taste.

Indeed! After the photo was taken I added the third coat, including a bit of Tamiya Smoke in the mix.

Normally I'd agree with you but in this case I think the vibrant colours go quite well with clowns colourful (though in this case evil) nature!

Hmm, I got those pots of Tamiya clears somewhere. Besides red the others I have might be good for some sort of alien slime/puss/blood! Arrgh, another thing on my list to try... :P

Depends a bit on how much it is at the time. Small ball only about 5/10 seconds. A larger ball I do it in runs of 5/10 seconds until it feels right. :)
