Marble paint technique

I just got the Obsidian Crypt from Reaper and decided to try out a black marble paint in anticipation for trying to do my own marble daises, and am pretty happy with the results so I thought I would share. Here's the reference I used: black marble ref.jpg The key is mixing the marbling washes with s...

Re: Tapestries

Very welcome, @kitenerd, I'm glad my giant wall of text was at least interesting. ;) To get us back on topic, I thought I would mention that I have discovered that Spoonflower has a sample pack with small swatches of all their fabrics which you can get for $3 if you want to see what all the fabric t...

Re: KS6 Forces of Nature way to soon discussion

Just to throw a couple of pennies in, having played around with sticking a thatched roof on a small KS4 tower section, I personally would be really excited about a large but squat baobab-ish tree built like the Castle towers system where you put together combinations of trunk walls into round 4" tre...

Re: Experimenting with domes for castle towers

Thanks so much for all the info, oddbender! You are definitely contributing to the cause IMO. It seems to me the odds that anyone is going to be 3d printing the equivalent of a DF set in either beauty or size at home anytime soon are very small, but I love the idea of being able to design and print ...

seeing the out-of-stock sets

Hey, does anyone know how to see the out-of-stock sets that have been hidden in the store? I appreciate the lack of clutter by concealing them, but I am debating whether to get certain things now or wait until they come back in stock, and I can't remember what is in the out-of-stock sets or how much...

Re: Harlech Castle - Gatehouse Build

Rabbit Burner, both the real and dwarvenite castles are truly magnificent. You have made me put Harlech on the to-see list for the next time I get over the pond. <3

Re: Experimenting with domes for castle towers

oddbender, would you share what kind of printer you have and what software & materials you're using? The catwalk and onion dome in particular are amazing, but even more so is how fast and how many things you're prototyping.

Re: Paint recs for LEDs?

An update with some reports! Thanks to Oldent's recommendation of Pledge and a post I found on painting transparent minis on the Reaper boards, I found one technique that can get you perfectly even results on a smooth surface: DIPPING. I filled a little Tylenol medicine cap with 2tsp Pledge Floor Ca...
