It isn't my favourite roll because the texture isn't deep enough, so it produces only a very shallow indentation (which isn't the case with the other rolls I have), but you won't find many methods that work faster. You can texturise several square feet of styrofoam in a few minutes if you wanted.minutes if you wanted.
I have a similar situation... I do a few pieces, when I can. I switch to something else, if I can't bring myself to do more of the same, but still want to craft items. It does require discipline to keep going on a project. I find that I make progress in spurts, or surges.
I've got a 3D modular terrain project I've been working on for over two years. I had hoped to have it completed for a convention, this coming January... Not going to make it, decided I have to do it properly, or not do it all. Looks like I will finish it for January of 2020, instead of 2019. Cheers!
I've got a couple podcasts I really enjoy but I've conquered the backlogs & it's never enough content.
I haven't listened to an audiobook book in 2 or 3 years but I'll check em out if you've got a few favorites.
Audio books; - The Dresden files [Modern fantasy], mediocre* writing to be sure - but between a captivating story and James Marsters soothing voice it's well worth you time.
*) Jim Butcher (author) becomes a lot better by book 3-4, so its worth hanging in there even if it seems a tad banal at first.
- King slayer chronicles, good well written books - now if only the author would get off stop playing D&D long enough to finish the last book xD
- BBCs production of The hobbit & Lord of the rings, no clue if you can still get them I got them on casettes
- Sherlock holmes also by BBC iirc, same isue with availablity
Some books series that could be good ( I read them, but do not like the voices of the people reading them on audible ); - Wheel of time - Belgariad, Malloreon, Elenium, Tamuli, Belgarath, Polgara, Rivan Codex ... pretty much anything written by David Eddings xD
tauster , I have a lustful eye on many a greenstuff doodads, it's just not financially viable anytime soon whilst straddling the poverty line in the rural Pacific Northwest.
I have a list of the Greenstuff rollers, $83 worth of stuff from them, but I'm in a similar boat with you Caspan as far as having cash available for non-important stuff! Could put it on a credit card, but even that has to be paid off sometime!
erho: I will once again rise above Lurker status if I ever get back to painting, Real life work transitions... Adulting

sgtslag: Still unpacking after moving in October... Too much stuff, crafting materials are mostly still in boxes. Weekends are busy with life, so little progress made. Getting the urge to push through, though, soon. I have several projects waiting...

erho: Yeah I'm down for a painting contect

sgtslag: Started working on making hills, which match my Tee-Time carpet I use for my "grass mat," on my gaming table, for big battles. Got two long chunks of open-cell foam, from a friend. Used my Proxxon Hot Wire Cutter to make terrain hills out of them.
Jul 26, 2020 20:12:40 GMT
sgtslag: Came up with around 80 hills. Covering them with the same carpet, from scraps. They will match the tabletop, perfectly. Contact Cement, is my friend. Will post on it, when I get the pictures uploaded. Some prototypes done, as proof-of-concept...

randywest: does anyone know more manufacturers for 1/72 fantasy minis besides Dark Alliance, Caesar and Elhiem?
Sept 14, 2020 14:16:19 GMT
sgtslag: 50 Hills completed, 24 left to cover the sides on. Hoping to finish this project within the week. Then I'll post a build description. For war gaming, but it can cross over to RPG sessions... They match the ground 'cloth', perfectly.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:09 GMT
sgtslag: Sorry, randywest, the listed makers are the only ones I know.
Sept 19, 2020 19:03:34 GMT
sgtslag: Ran out of Hot Glue, with only five hills left to add a skirt to the sides of. Wal-Mart closes at 8:00 PM, thanks to COVID. GRRRrrr! Another 30 minutes of work, and I would have been done: ~77 hills, modular, perfectly matching my table's ground cloth!

sgtslag: Will post a write-up soon, or after next week's vacation. Cheers!
Sept 23, 2020 2:51:57 GMT
sgtslag: Hoping to acquire a Chop Saw within the next two weeks. Then I will cut up MDF into triangles, to form the skeleton of my d20 fantasy world globe... Posting will follow, with how-to guide. Cheers!

erho: I have a confession: I havnt painted a thing in months because I got a new guitar(#8!) but now that May "Megadeth month" is over I have a repaired airbrush and a early 90's Ral Partha Amethyst dragon on the table... pics to come soon!
Jun 11, 2021 17:49:58 GMT
margaret: too bad you can't post your music here =). Hadn't seen that dragon - looks like it came out when all my cash was going to raising kids. Looking forward to seeing your paint choices!
