I'm looking for any tutorial about making crests for space marine helmets (Ancient roman and ancient greek style) with green stuff. Any idea? All suggestions are welcomed ^^

I have done one a couple years ago, but don't have any pics unfortunately.

Easiest way, imo, is to roll a long green-stuff sausage to about the thickness you want, then cut it into individual pieces the length you want. Mount to the head, sculpt into shape, and then use either a toothpick, or the tip of an exact-o-knife if you want smaller lines, to texture the hairs onto your crest. I did this on a number of my models, and I think it looked pretty good overall.

this might help you since the crest is in green stuff, not my model I saw it on pinterest.

Jebus... I hope who ever made that did a good job painting it as well. That model looks amazing!

Otherwise greenstuff is going to be your go to. Just find a good picture of the crest you want and sculpt away!
