Oh....Stop it !  Wink

The nearest 'colour' that I can equate to with Tony's figures....Is that it looks SLIGHTLY similar to green stuff....After the model has been pressed in a mould.
The heat from the process tends to change the colour of the G/S to a dirty 'browny' green....But not as dark as the figures pictured.

For all I know, Tony might add Red Sylmasta putty to the green.........He might not even use G/S. Shocked

There's one putty, made by the same folk that 'do' G/S, that IS brown. (If it exists anymore)

Lovely putty to work with......but SO expensive....and it goes off so quickly....and once 'set'....is so brittle, you can't adjust 'things' with a simple bend without it shattering.

My personal putties of choice are......Kneadatite (Green-stuff) .....Magic Sculp...(which I'll mix with the G/S to produce a very soft, light green coloured putty.).....and Milliput.

Sorry to spoil the fun but has anybody thought of asking the sculptor what he used?   Wink

Yes....but he never answers. Roll eyes

Do you truly believe that hasn't been tried ?  I don't want to see

No just trying for a cheap laugh.   Embarrassed

How about all us non-kickstarters ask for our money back until he reveals the secret?

Miliput?  How 'old school'.  I thought I was the only person still using it.  What do you use it for?  I find is good as a filler and for large models.  Never had much success using it for 10mm stuff though.

I have news from the distant shores...

"Well, that brown stuff I'm using is called, er, Brown Stuff. Yes, really. Available from eBay, but they send it from Spain. The blurb says it's 'better for beginners' - so I thought I should switch!

Seriously, it is very good, I would say a bit stiffer than Green Stuff / Duro, and sets harder, so doesn't require Milliput to be separately mixed & added to it as I usually do. The real determining factor however is not the putty, but the weather. The temperature really. And how much sleep I've had!"

Ohhhhhh ! Roll eyes

The Kneadatite 'Brown stuff' I've used in the past, looks a fair bit darker once mixed.....But it certainly sets 'harder' than Green stuff.....It's actually quite brittle, once it's set.
It is/was a lovely putty to work with....VERY easy to smooth....But 'goes off' faster than I really like.....(I'd waste even more of that.)

But.....

Last time I tried to get some.....I was really put off by the price....It WAS around the same price as G/S.....But instead of the best part of a metre of G/S, you'd get around 10cm of Brown stuff for the same amount of dosh !! Shocked

I know there are quite a few places that sell shorter strips of G/S......But THAT is an expensive way to buy it, if you get through as much as I do.

Good to know, anyway.
