Painted the back of four floors last night. No tackiness observed this morning.
Could you please try a scratch test to compare adhesion versus Pokorny paints?

That is awesome! Thank you for the test and the samples! I will be picking up some later this week.

Yeah, I don't think you could get any closer. Wow.
If you aren't gaming then you aren't living.

That is awesome, but please, can you test it to make sure it does not stay "tacky"? Not all paints work with PVC...

Great Find!

How well does that Valspar adhere? I've been using Pokorny paints without primer, do you think the Valspar works that way as well? I was thinking of mixing a close enough version from Pokorny paints, which would be much more trouble and costly of course.

I picked up eight half pint jars of a Valspar acrylic satin mixed in this color today at my local Lowes. Tested and confirmed as an almost perfect match.

Best news was that the samples cost me a whopping $.70 each. :)

Much thanks for the tip.

I finally found a paint that's an (almost) exact match to the DwarvenForge "Dungeon Gray". I got it at Lowes "Fired Earth" 6011-1 and you can get a decent amount of paint as a sample for $4. It's satin finish and I think gloss would match better, but you can't get samples in gloss. Now that I know the color matches I will likely go back for a quart of gloss.

There is a subtle difference in bright light with magnification, but in my hands I have to feel along the edges to find where the painted spot is. Not even joking.

Base coat with this and then use the official DF paints for a perfect match.
Excellent information! Thanks!

For limited amounts I find Vallejo grey black to be a good match. Expensive though for big coverage.
A pretty decent Docent of Valoria
