I am sorry I can not help with official. I saw someone do a sewer in red brick. I liked the Idea but wanted something that would blend better with my collection . I like to paint so I always get unpainted.

Image

This is the wash and water effect

Image

Black primmer Pewter gray heavy Dry brush

Image

I start with brown for the bricks

Image

I use several teracoats. DF did not make one when I painted these bricks. I use the DF colorsto to detail and dry brush.

Image

All of the DF colors make nice washes. Use matte medium if you want a flat wash.

Image

I use primer because I have to match plaster and resin cast parts to my sets. You can see some of the custom tiles I have made. Note the exact same paints look different with different brush strokes and textures. A unifying wash is always a good idea.
nice!!

Thanks! I'm surprised I somehow didn't see that. I appreciate the help!

Het dek op en neer!
Hoe waaiend de wimpels
Al heen en al weer!

Go above to tutorials. Then download the City/Castle tutorial on the paint scheme for sewers.

Color Scheme For Sewers?

Post by Hekaton1 » Wed Feb 14, 2018 3:37 pm

Hello,

I've been eyeing the Monster Sewer Set, and I've been wondering what the official color scheme is for that. I can see that the basic four colors are used, along with Sludge (by the way, why is the color for that paint and some others smaller in the store?), a light brown for the grate, and a couple more greens. Is there a link to what the color scheme is, or does someone know, or something? Thanks!
