Sculpting Guide: Rivets
This guide has come about after a comment on the Privateer Press Forums regarding a plastic Spriggan conversion i've been working on.
So, here's a short guide to how i got made the rivets :)
the main tool is the nib from a mechanical pencil; check the graphite from the pencil and this is how big your rivets will be.
next make a sausage of greenstuff and place it where you want the rivet to be.
take your tool and make sure it is wet; normally you keep tools damp, but in this instance we don't want the greenstuff sticking to it at all!
Removing your tool will leave a visable rivet amongst the greenstuff sausage.
taking a damp sculpting tool, carefully peel away the sausage; being careful not to dislodge your rivet!
this will leave you with a rivet!
