Doing it for the hobby! This "Green Stuff" tutorial comes from different techniques picked up over the years, on the road with miniatures. 

They say "You can't teach an old dog new tricks"...lets prove'em wrong.

We're going to focus on sculpting hair with green stuff. 

This tutorial has been written with ghouls and ghoul hair in mind, but applies with hair and even beards.

Here are some of the types of "Green Stuff" products you can use or look at, you want to get the biggest bang for your buck, so you may find better prices else-where:

You can just use these as an example to use for following the upcoming tutorial, you could potentially find better deals in other places as mentioned before.

Warning: Sharp Tools Are Needed To Do This.

Sculpting Hair

Step One

Take the figure you wish to work with and trim away any unwanted sections.

As a rule if its going to be covered by hair its easier to work on a smoother surface.

Step Two

Roll out a ball of green stuff and flatten it out on your workplace. 

Using a modelling knife cut it to the size you require and cut a few lines into the surface. 

A drop of water will help here.

Step Three

Apply the piece to the figure and dab it into place where the roots would connect to the scalp.

Step Four

Work the roots to blend in with the rest of the head. 

Then work the tips of the hair and try to get them pointy.

If you’re careful, you can add extra streaks. 

Step Five

Work around the exterior of the head piece by piece and layer by layer until you have an effect that resembles the following.

The Final Result

This method can be applied to all kinds of hair, beards, fur coats and even animals can have their hair thickened.

"You can't teach an old dog new tricks"...they say. Well... I say this can defeat that.
