I know I'm not the OP, but maybe we can help you out if you have any questions about painting the ice caverns. :-)

Unlit it looks good -Lit it looks fantastic! I cannot believe how cool the piles of snow on top look - such a great effect!

BRAVO!

I just finished this test to see if adding some fine glitter for a nice shimmering effect would work. I also wanted to test with this piece because the hole makes it easy to try out a blue LED inside.

To go through the details, I used some Dollar Store (from Canada) DecoArt Crafter's Acrylic 'Light Antique White' and 'White'. I also used verdigris glaze and blue ink. I applied the antique white first as a bry brush, much as you do if you paint the stone highlight on the dungeon tiles. I was a bit heavy on all the top edges of the various "levels" on the mound. Then I added the mix of verdigris glaze and ink, decently watered, and washed that all around and into the crevices. I had to dab off spotty areas with a wet brush as the ink mix dried... as well, I would often brush upward to get it a bit more evenly applied. Lastly, I used the 'White', drybrushing on the most bumpy surfaces. Lastly, I applied thick white onto the tops of the ridges where I figured snow build-up would be heaviest. I did this part quick since I was going to apply the Extra Fine Glitter (made by ArtMinds and bought at Michaels with 50% off coupon) to the heavily applied white paint. I made sure to have it on a paper plate so I could catch the excess glitter to put back into the container later.

Here's how it turned out:

Gorgeous work.

The Realistic Water in the crevices is fantastic.

These are perfect.

I just finished painting 3 sets. I mixed 48 drops of Pokorny white with 3 drops of water bubbles to get a toothpaste color. I used this base to paint the bottoms of all tiles, then I lightly dry brushed all pieces with the same color. I then dry rushed lightly with white, then painted the top edges of all pieces white. I painted a heavier coat on the hanging drippy bits.

I wanted a dramatic look, with heavy whites and subtle blue undertones. The translucence is preserved, though it's not apparent on the pic. I want to use scenic water effects in the recesses, that was a good idea. Just need to pick some up from the local hobby store.

These look really nice, but I am not sure I can improve over the clear with my level of painting. We will see when I get the rest painted.

You are making me regret not picking up the clear tiles. Those look fantastic! Thanks for sharing!
