Or you could use it to fill any area of emptiness!

Things you might need to buy only other things you need are water a dish soap

Apply to surface of Plasticard

Smooth over intended surface then smooth the edges of carapace

Dip your sculpting tool in soap then water it down and outline the back where the carapace would overlap with the carapce

Now would be the time you pull off any extra GS

Imprint line as shown

http://album.warpshadow.com/v/HiveFleet ... 1.jpg.html
http://album.warpshadow.com/v/HiveFleet ... 9.jpg.html

Hold the sculpting tool upright and start towards the center and work your way out

I let the top part harden and then filed the sides to make sure I didn't leave finger prints

Repeat above steps only this time when applying the GS to the bottom pull out an shape with wet fingers a scything talon

Flatten each side of the scything talon then the make three indentation on each side
