I always wanted to sculpt my miniatures. I tried couple of times before. But this time I feel better about it. I sculpted two miniatures with my hobby knife. Then I crafted some tools.
I crushed pins with a hammer and tried to give them various shapes. They were very good after the hobby knife.
Then I sculpted those two. I hope those will make a little help who want to sculpt in this scale. I know I have to work a lot. But every little information
is valuable for someone who want to sculpt 6mm. Thanks !13/11/2019 at 02:00 #126376Stephen MadjanovichParticipant
Very nice! Good luck on you new skills. Let us know when you want ideas.13/11/2019 at 09:34 #126383jeffersParticipant
I like the bespoke tools!
Have a go with Brownstuff (actually, it’s a dirty grey). It is finer and sharper than green stuff so may be better for 6mm. I’ve almost completely swapped over; I only use green for large ‘soft’ areas now (or gluing riders to horses!).

Hey this is a great beginning. I too make my own tools. I used old xacto blade on one end and a pin on the other. Other DIY tool you could explore are pinhead for smoothing and negative space and rubber tip tools, I used them to nudge putty into basic shapes.
I haven’t tried grownstuff for a whole figure yet but I think it’s too soft and easily marked. I think it needs a diferent set of tools from greenstuff, something with larger area to shape and smooth it.
Tired is enough.13/11/2019 at 18:13 #126418jeffersParticipant
Here’s my kit, although it’s for larger figures:
When I did 10mm I just used the Xacto knife on miliput. Horrible stuff! Only use it for model filler now.

Tonight I continued the ones I started yesterday but I feel like I could’t move forward much today.20/11/2019 at 07:06 #126790BunkerfolkParticipant
Very cool progress so far! Love the DIY tools29/11/2019 at 19:44 #127344Microworld SteveParticipant
Nice work! Always wanted to try to sculpt my own as well, but the time I feel it would take me to become proficient has always kept me away. That and my lack of artistic ability29/11/2019 at 23:14 #127357NoelParticipant
This is a great start
