Sculpting Technique: Belts
Firstly, take a sausage of Greenstuff slightly smaller than the width of the belt you are sculpting. This needs to be slightly shorter than whatever it's wrapped around. This takes alot of guesswork, but is easily fixed if it turns out too short / long!
Secondly, flatten the greenstuff so that it is smooth and the right thickness for the belt. Bring the belt all the way around the limb and join the edges.
Take a wet knife and run along the greenstuff, creating sharp edges for the belt... try to keep the width even!
Next take a point and press into the belt at even distances to create buckle holes.
Now let the GS dry completely before trying the next step.
Take a sausage of Greenstuff just over three times the width of the belt itself.
Next, use a wet tool to gently bend the outer two thirds in to touch the sides of the belt.
Finally, once the buckle is dry I add a small straight bar from one of the holes onto the buckle as the latch and you are done!
