Liquid Green Stuff is a Citadel Technical

Liquid Green Stuff is the ideal tool for filling in small gaps on a miniature. Because it is water soluble you can use a normal Citadel Paint Brush to apply it (just make sure you wash the brush afterwards). The Liquid Green Stuff will then set in place, filling the gap neatly and efficiently. It can also be filed using the Citadel Emery Boards for an even smoother finish.

This pot contains 12ml of Liquid Green Stuff, one of 4 Technical paints in the Citadel Paint range. This non-toxic liquid modelling filler is designed for use on plastic, metal, and resin Citadel miniatures.

Available thru Games Workshop or other gaming and fine model stores.

I'm no way connected to the seller.

You would use it to make welds the same way...

That you would use thinned Squadron Green Stuff (or other polyester putty) to make weld beads.

What I do is lay down two parellel narrow strips of tape, use the brush to put a line of thinned putty between them, texture the putty (I use a chisle-shaped toothpick), then remove the tape.

This product appears like it would work more or less the same way. The potential application seemed immediately obvious when I read the description.

Most of these welds were made using this technique with thinned Squadron Green Stuff:

The very small or short welds, for example around the tool clamps and brackets, were made with two-part epoxy putty (here Miliput gray), but all of the the longer green welds are Green Stuff putty.
