I've used the milliput black and das so far. I was trying to make some bases with it. Milliput doesn't suit what I was trying so well but the Das worked perfectly. I was going for an ancient style ruins set of bases. Slabs of rock paving the floor, cracked and worn by time. My ye olde stone weathering looks rubbish but the actual floor looks excellent.
One thing I found with the Das is that - unlike everything else - when I made the indentations between the stones there was no visible puffing up of the surrounding clay. It seems to be much less dense than the others so when I finished the divisions in the floor I didn't then have to work on smoothing the flagstones back out. Made the processmuch less fiddly and annoying.
Very smooth and pleasant to handle as well. Inexpensive too. This is the first lot I have produced;
|Temple-y floor-y basey|
|Tree stumps - that glow!|
|Temple columns and base.|
In the future I'll be looking to inscribe the pillars themselves to add more detail and depth to the piece but for now I'm happy being able to make straight lines and circles.
|Brick-paved or wooden floor|
Finally got myself a daylight bulp lamp today. It's very nice - currently on sale in Hobbycraft if you don't have one. Feels very different at first but definitely makes it easy to be colour- accurate at night compared to during the day.
I might actually get some more article stuff written tonight. Caio for now!
