Do you have any "Brown Stuff"? It's similar to GS but gives harder edges. I think it would make for sharper detail in the molds.

I would suggest that a simpler way - and one that gives better definition would be to use Siligum, see link;

Then cast a copy with two part resin, I use car repair resin bought from Halfords (a motorists super store in the UK).

I have had successes with casting small pieces like, hulls, badges, heads and windows, more details can be found on the Blog.

Sorry - forgot to add, when the cast resin is still fresh, it has a rubbery consistency and can be shaped - for example the winged sword device you use could be curved on to a shoulderpad.

If you leave it to long, just heat it up and it will become pliable.
