Looks great, you are spot on.

So, once you get the process down are these something you might possibly produce for sale? :oops:
Or at least show us the mold you created, resin used and colors mixed.
I don't even own any resin lake or river tiles yet, but hope to someday.
What do you use for paint removal on them too?

I'm only asking for all your secrets. :lol:
The Guild of Underworld Aquatic Craft maintains a very close hold on its trade secrets... ;)

It is well known the GUAC build quality projects using the finest material, and it is even rumored that some less conventional members have been using their knowledge for commercial endeavors. :roll:

Thanks... Yes, would be good substitute for a cuppa joe. :P

Here is next (v.0.2) version. Added some more green. Think it is spot on. Tough part in mixing is the dried paint has different shade than when wet. Luv me my Super Clean paint remover.

Eight water tiles shown:

--- four on left are v.0.1 (bit too dark)
---four on right are:
--- -- two original DF
--- -- two of my v.0.2

Another couple shots:

Well done!

Please be sure to share your technique.
Thanks!

Still working it out...call this version v.0.2...v.0.1 was too light green, so into the Super Clean they went. Will put something together once I get it right.

Very nice. Like you said, it's sooo close.
The blue on the little double island tile is a bit bright.
Probably there for most of us. Like me... ;)

I always enjoy your painting pics, wish I had that kind of talent.
Dysfunctional (numb and shaky) hands work O.K. for terrain, but anything detailed, forget it.
Thanks for the post. :)
Thanks...

Yeah, agree, need to mod that color scheme. Was a total stab in the dark. Supposed to be a submerged shallow rock formation, but it is too bright for sure. Have to tone it down alot.

Painting in reverse (on bottom side of tile) is a whole new thing for me, so I have that to deal with. And I am a bit impatient - ready- fire - aim.
