What to do with left-over Green Stuff

I always end up having mixed slightly more Green Stuff than I need.  Here's what I do with the excess.

Blob some onto a penny, smooth down the edges and poke a hole in the middle:


Add your terrain-texturing material; in my case brown-tinted tile grout: 


Allow to dry, paint and dry-brush.  Result: bases for flags to mark terrain captured or scenario objectives.


Or you can use spare Green Stuff to attach bits of dry twig to a penny.  Two shown here with the base already textured and painted:


Dry-brush base, glue on clump foliage and voila, 6mm trees:


Finally, with several batches of left-over Green Stuff you can gradually build up this kind of thing, again on a penny:


Paint orange/yellow, glue on cotton wool or paint-dyed interfacing material and you have a 6mm scale explosion marker:

Its like an episode of Blue Peter all we needed was some sticky back plastic. Great work as always.
