Once that was dry I was able to use a little bit of oil as a lubricant and then I simply pressed the green stuff into the mould with a good bit of force. I did manage to trap an air bubble as you can see near the centre of the shield. It is no big deal... it can represent battle damage afterall. The shield also seems to have picked up some more texture than I would have expected. I don't know how this will look once painted. Hopefully it won't really be noticable. It doesn't look bad this way either. So I think I should start working on some more difficult shapes soon!
- One tip is to make sure that you use excess greenstuff and have that lap over the side of the moulded shape. That makes it very easy to peel the shield out once all is dry.
- also don't use too much mould release as this can also cause bubbling (I noticed this on the second one I made).
