    @Bracnos What ratio of Greenstuff:Milliput do you use for this kind of mold/cast?

    Normally i use 1:1 right now ive mainly have been using a mix of yellow millput and GS. Ive found if i use yellow by itself the casted part is to hard and will snap when cleaing. Mixing it with Gs lends it to be more flexible and wont snap when cutting or cleaning. Im going to look at mixing and using them on their own more types of epoxy, to see which one im happy with. For now i recomen a 1:1 mix of yellow and GS as thats what i have to most experience using.

    Hey guys, I've used green stuff and oyumaru a while ago.
    In my experience and in a nutshell, I agree with Bracnos..
    GS is good for creating moulds for small elements you'll need to replicate a lot (otherwise you're wasting a lot of it). superfine milliput I tried as well, it works for relatively flat objects but if there are prominent edges it gets too crumbly I think. Oyamaru , I think, is the best since its flexible (no need for oil or anything) and of course reusable.
    As for actually casting pieces off your moulds, both GS and milliput work for that but again, GS being more flexible is less fragile.
    There are more details on my blog with pics too :)

    Oyumaru is great!
    I also tried PolyDoh which also has some advantages but the best thing about Oyumaru is that it isn't sticky at all. Awesome.

    I will post a few things I did with it soon.
