    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 !

    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.

    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.

    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 ability
