Liquitex Modeling Paste
I have never used a modeling paste before, but I took a leap and ordered an 8 ounce tub of Liquitex Modeling Paste and tried it out on a couple of miniatures. (Pics below)
On the Ogre fighter guy I kind of just tried to smear it around to look like mud. For the Lich miniature I used a small wooden utensil to pull the paste up into spikes, which I intended to look like flames. I let them both dry over night and then painted them up.
So, here are the pictures below of my first two attempts to use Liquitex Modeling Paste to achieve textures on Role Playing Game and Wargame miniature bases. I really like the result. And on a practical note, the price tag might seem high (I found it Amazon for $12.99) but 8 ounces of paste is going to last forever if all you’re doing is miniature bases and the odd craft project or two. You’re going to have to make sure you use it before it dries up, in all likelihood.
