Good evening, folks! I started back into the Witch proper today only to find that I was lacking in the Greenstuff department. "RATS! Will I ever be able to continue my work!?", I cried to the Gods of Miniature Making. It was then I remembered what I had planned on using the lovely Dremel 3000 for that my lovelier other half had gifted me this Christmas. ROPE! It's a relatively simple process of which I will outline below. With pictures no less!
Tutorial: How to Make Miniature Rope
Stage 2: I loosened the dremel bit holder and placed the looped ends into the space. I then inserted a plain bit into the space to hold the wire in place.
Stage 3: I braced the opposite ends with clippers (you can use your hands but clippers would be better as the wires are less likely to slip). Once held fast, turn on the dremel/drill and the wires will wrap around one another. Keep the wire held tight with the clippers and try not to let the wire knot.
There you have it. A rope fit to hang any plastic heretic! Or keep up a skirt, in my case. Ain't nobody wanna see that!
So that's it for today. I'll have another look for the greenstuff tomorrow and hopefully I can continue sculpting soon. I hope you enjoyed this little tutorial, I've never quite done anything like it before so let me know what you think. I'm really chuffed to be continuing with the Witch now and the hobby juices are flowing once again!
As always, stay safe, beware Old Night and I hope you'll be by again soon.
