Not to be critical but I think I would prefer the tile if the fix made it look a lot closer to the original

I have tried with some success to get green ink flowing into the delaminated area.

It cuts down on that bright light greenish delamination.

Rescuing delaminated resin water tiles with Vitrail/Prisme paints

Post by astolat » Sun Dec 16, 2018 3:15 pm

This past summer I picked up a Lake Expansion set from ebay for cheap because many of the tiles were damaged/delaminated. I poked at it a little without success, not wanting to be aggressive because it's so hard to get them, but having just won the lottery I got an expansion set that is in perfect shape, and so I decided to take a bigger stab at the damaged one. Here are the before/after:

Sad sad whirlpool tile:

Repainted with Pebeo Vitrail and Prisme paints:

In build with perfect tile for comparison and next to another delaminated tile:

My takeaways:
- This isn't quite working in the set anymore because the tile is too blue and the Prisme effects go too far to the edge to blend into the neighboring tiles. I need a dark green Vitrail paint matching the actual water tile (I don't have green Vitrail and the dark blue is so strong that trying to mix it didn't really work)

- That said, it's much more usable for me than the unpainted one where the delamination was all that I noticed. The vitrail also DOES successfully preserve the transparency and luminescence, but it is also dark enough that you can't see the delamination anymore.

I am planning to get some green Vitrail paint and try painting in from the edges to both cover up the excess Prisme and to blend the color to match the other open water edges.
