Green Stuff works well on Dwarvenite and Resin. It sticks fairly easily to rough surfaces, but I roughed up smooth areas (water areas) for better purchase. I would practice with clay as LadySabelle suggests. The Green Stuff starts to harden after a while, were the clay will stay soft until you bake it. Once you start working with the GS you need to be quicker. Also fine detail should wait till it's hardening a bit, because it will settle a bit if done while softer. It's trickier than clay, but you'll get the hang of it.

Here is a thread of green stuff mods (not Coral) on some Dwarvenite, take a look through pages.

Good luck Whyteshark.

I was always fond of the colors in that set. LadySabelle posted a DF cavern painted as Under Dark that was also nice.

Thanks for the share, Oldent. :)

It's not that hard to sculpt coral, whyteshark. Google is full of wonderful pictures to use as reference. I'd suggest starting with some cheap polymer clay until you've got the knack. The coral was the first things I'd ever sculpted and I used Sculpey III. Then I made a mold of the successful pieces. At the time I didn't think sculpting was something I was capable of doing, but decided to try anyway. I couldn't find scale coral for sale anywhere, so my only option was to make some myself. I did a few more sculpts every so often, but I still wasn't convinced I could really sculpt anything worthwhile. I only started seriously sculpting a few months before the launch of KS3 and the rest is history.

Feel free to PM me (or just post here) if you have specific questions.

EDIT: The first page of that thread is full of coral that wasn't actually sculpted. It was made with puddles of hydrostone. The actual sculpted coral pics start on page 7 or so.

A few cavern sets painted like that would be awesome. Throw in a mountain set as well and it would totally feel like the underdark.

Caverns to Corral Reef

Post by whyteshark » Fri Jun 24, 2016 1:21 pm

I have purchased another couple of caverns sets that I want to make into an underdark/underwater dungeon area. I am going to do a blueish/corral paint scheme, but I was wondering about how hard it is to sculpt green stuff onto the DF pieces. I want to make some corral. I tried to do a search, but there are way to many posts that I can't track down a good example/lesson on how to do this. Anyone?
