Glorex Keramistone Granite is an excellent modelling clay for walls, buildings, floor tiles, foundations, towers, et bridges for dioramas et wargames. The waterbased, non-toxic, et air drying clay is easy to sculpt, et it dries overnight ou within minutes if baked in the oven. Unused modelling clay will keep for some time if stored in an airtight freezer bag, especially if a moist paper towel is placed inside the bag to keep the clay from drying. The light grey base colour avec irregular dark grey spots looks perfectly like granite, et the surface of the clay feels dry et rough like unpolished stone. The overall granite effect is very convincing, et it would be difficult ou impossible to achieve by painting ou weathering. The completed models are best left unpainted. Green granite may be achieved by dying the clay ou carefully washing et drybrushing the finished model. Keramistone Granite modelling clay does not stick to tools ou rulers, providing the modéliste avec fast et easy results. This is a superb product which will inspire joueurs de guerre et modélistes to create their own scale model buildings et accessories. Plan ahead et sketch your modelling projects prior to opening the large 800 g package of Keramistone Granite, lest you run out of modelling ideas before the precious clay is used completely.
We used an old X-Acto blade No. 11 to carve the mortar lines into the natural stone masonry of the bridge side shown here. The whole process took approximately 10 to 15 minutes when we first tested it. The structural support for the bridge side was cut from 3 mm MDF medium density fibreboard, sanded smooth, et covered avec double-sided tape along all exposed stone surfaces. A small amount of Glorex Keramistone Granite was placed between two sheets of baking paper et rolled out to a thickness of 1 mm. The bridge side was then firmly pressed into the clay to ensure that the clay formed a good bond avec the double-sided tape. Keeping the bridge side face down we trimmed off the excess modelling clay avec a sharp X-Acto blade. This done, the mortar lines were carved into the fresh modelling clay, using a dull X-Acto blade. The first test results were pleasing enough to inspire us to create many more models avec Glorex Keramistone Granite.

Compared to some of the softer modelling clays, Glorex Keramistone Granite allowed us to create much finer detail. Narrow mortar lines stayed as they were et did not stretch during the drying process. When the mortar lines were carved ou pressed into the clay, the adjacent stone surfaces stayed flat, whereas they normally assume an unrealistically rounded shape. Glorex Keramistone Granite does not shrink ou warp during the drying process, if thin layers of clay are mounted on an MDF structure, using double-sided tape.
