Part 2 Welds with slow drying putty

Part 2
Welds with slow drying putty

So now I'm going to show how to make welds with this kind of putty.
To start it is necessary to have the following:

Glass plate for a base (or any other slippery waterproof surface).
Water (It is more comfortable to have it in a small cup like an egg holder.)
Slow drying putty (I will use Tamiyas two part putty.)
Some kind of a tool to make the weld pattern.
A model to apply the welds.



The tools to make the pattern, they are made from brass tube.



Start by preparing the surface, sand a little the places where the putty will go. If needed make a groove.



Now take some putty and put it on the base (glass), make shure the surface and fingures are wet.



Roll until you get a suitable thickness.



Apply to model and push down with something wet and soft. A cotton swab will work well.



Use the tool to make a weld.



I made two different types. The smaller one on top is harder to make because it is difficult to place and get it to settle in the wanted place.





That's it, I hope you find it useful.

Happy modelling!

Siim
