it's a type of epoxy resin called Greenstuff. Games Workshop sells it, so does GaleForce 9. There are many variations of this epoxy based on how moulable/hard you want it. There's Milliput in various thicknesses, there's Graystuff of other manufacturers, even some housework "glue" epoxies can be used as sculpting material.

Thnks. I should make a new and better one (more elaborate) along with how to build your photo station, what programs other than PS to use, how to use your cellphone if you don't have a camera... etc. This one is rather old, but it's still good.

...a ovo iz mog odgovora od pre 15 minuta se tacno i dogodilo, sunka je postavio totalno debilan komentar da "cika na slici, po zlaji, treba da bude 500 pixela visok". Ne treba. Treba da cela slika izgleda super tako sto ces ispostovati neka pravila dizajniranja (pravilo trecina i zlatnog preseka, nacin prezentovanja, ugao fotkanja, broj i raspored fotofrafija na slici...) ako ti kacis jednu fotku gde je glavni cika visok 500 pixela... a slika je 600 pixela, a moj ekran je u 1600x1200 rezoluciji, znas sto ce se to videti? Nece.

I zato do sada i nisam hteo da im postujem, jer pametuju oko gluposti a ne uvazavaju moje misljenje iz ko zna kog razloga. Ergo, vracamo se na prvu konstataciju iz predhodnog odgovora - ko ih jebe.

it is disturbing that i have to post this in another group so that people see it, since this baby has been in Eye of Terror for the past 3 years in the tutorials section :D

you're welcome, i like seeing good photos of good minis :D so i decided to help out in that department as there are many great minis but in poor photo condition.

Great tutorial!
My camera is so bad at taking macro photos... They show pretty good in the LCD, but when I throw them in the PC and give a zoom I see the photo is horrible pixelate, too sharpen and with lots of noise...
Reply
:iconolovni:
Olovni Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
that's not macro then, your camera is doing some sort of post-processig by itself... research your camera a little and check out what other options are on. The ISO might be set to a very high setting, that woudl explain both the sharpnes, noise, and pixelisation.

:iconorcbruto:
orcbruto Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
hummmm... I tried to put the ISO the less possible...

The bottom is written "Macro", but I think my camera is a chinese fake one =D

Great tutorial, but when I set the light settings right will it solve the problem of yellow light. Sometimes I take a photo with big lights cause it's dark but when I do the photo has a yellow tint, what setting could solve this?
Reply
:iconolovni:
Olovni Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
No light setting will completley fix this, you need to change your lights, or to learn to remove the yellow tint in photoshop. The reason this happens is that most of indoor lights are yellowish by nature. You need some neon lighting, or halogen lighting, do a little experimentla photos untill you find the light that works best for you.

In my case i either photograph durin the day (noting beats natural light), or i use a spotlight my local gaming club has.
