I'm currently working on a project that requires very tiny figures. 35mm high.
it was suggested that I NOT use Super Sculpey, and that a 2 part modeling material was what was being used other contract artists to model the figures.
Any suggestions for modeling compounds other than sculpey would be appreciated.
I would recommend kneadatite's "green stuff" it's an epoxy putty that a lot of people use to make those miniature figures for tabletop warhammer/D&D games

AWESOME. Thanks, this looks like just what I was looking for.
green stuff, brown stuff, magic sculpt, procreate... they all differ in consistency and 'feel'.
Milliput works fine, and you get quite a large ampunt of clay for your buck.
Ah, lovely scupts! Are you a professional? I am merely an amateur trying to get better. I stopped making minis (and art) a year ago because of work / life priorities, but I can't ignore the itch anymore. And yes, I agree... Milliput is my least favorite of the compounds... I will have to try Procreate for myself. Any words of wisdom in using it for someone used to using the green stuff?Originally Posted by Crusoe the Painter
Well, I've been paid for a few pieces....
Procreate is more clay like, so you have to wait till it starts to cure more if you want to burnish or polish it like you can with greenstuff. Other than that, just play with it a bit.
I have switched to ProCreate for all my miniature sculpts. The thing I like the most about it is it's a cross between green and brown stuff and I don't have to mix the different putties together to get the same properties. Here are a few putty tips I have put together:
And here are a couple of things I did for Reaper with it:
