I have never heard of a way to 'thin' greenstuff. What sort of effect are you looking for? If your looking for a liquid/paste filler I would recommend Humbrol modle filler. It is sandable and fills in small cracks very vell.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

milliput juice is just watered down fine milliput, which creates a sort of milk and can be applied to the surface of metal models to help fill the tiny gaps our eyes cant pick out without assistance. It helps give a smoother finish to a model, and it helps create a better surface for adhesion of the paint. It wouldn't work with greenstuff since green stuff is more an epoxy type plastic, the beauty of milliput is that it is essentially a clay so it can be used in that manner. I hope this helps.

A lot of the old-time modellers that I know use a mix of Squadron Green and liquid poly cement for filling gaps and smoothing areas (it makes a thin paste that can be painted, and dries rock hard, allowing sanding/filing and drilling) - I've used it on occasion, but the fumes give me headaches (SG has a toluene base from memory and may be harder to get in some places. Requires great ventilation and is flammable [VERY].)

Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?
