These would also be cool effects with caverns, for mushroomy-like pools…
Great!

Wow - that makes a really gorgeous effect! Please let us know if you plan on selling any of these :)

I bet either Oldent already knows about these paints, or is going to jump on them! :D

Amazing water effects with Prisme/Vitrail paints

Post by astolat » Wed Jul 25, 2018 11:45 am

Hey guys, I've been experimenting with Pebeo's Vitrail and Prisme paints for water effects, and I think I've figured out ways to make stuff that I think is really amazing and is also pretty painless to do.

All of these pieces are produced in roughly the same way:

- Pour a thin layer of a Vitrail paint, optionally mixed with Pebeo's Vitrail lightener.

- Drip on Prisme paints either heavily or in small sections, optionally swish around using toothpicks.

- Repeat layers as many times as desired.

You get different effects depending on how thick your layer is, how much you let the different layers dry in between, etc.

I made these first three pieces experimenting with Mantic Terrain Crate pieces as I didn't mind messing them up.

This one is a very thin piece with no rim on the pool area. I used hot glue to create a rim, poured a very tiny layer of undiluted Vitrail Sky Blue, let dry a bit, then dripped Prisme Emerald and Prisme Onyx around the edges, swirled them a very little bit with toothpicks, and let dry. (When you let Prisme paints dry on a flat surface, those cool honeycomb-like cells form over time.)

This fountain I did with just Prisme paints because it's so small. I just dripped in a Prisme blue (I can't remember which color I used, I think maybe Marine Blue/Navy Blue?) and Emerald. This photo was taken before the cells had formed fully.

Image

This might be my favorite. I tried putting a Vitrail layer OVER Prisme drips, but it was too dark, so then I did another layer of Prisme drips, then lightened Vitrail sky blue VERY heavily -- probably 1:10 ratio -- and poured it on top, and then dripped in more Prisme before the Vitrail had dried much. The Prisme paints sank partway into the Vitrail layer but because the Vitrail was so lightened, you can still see them.

Image

And here is the DoD large pool, which I also made with multiple layers of Vitrail and Prisme. In this case I dripped the Prisme right into a fresh layer of lightened Vitrail. I don't know if you can really get a sense of the three-dimensional quality of the paint from these last two pics, but in person it's really pronounced and lovely.

Basically you almost can't go wrong just messing around with these paints until you end up with something that you are happy with. You don't need to mix any specific proportions like with resin.

It dries to a firm, non-sticky surface. It could probably use some sealing & I know there is a sealer Pebeo makes, but I haven't tried yet.

The cons: It does take a few hours/overnight to dry, depending on how thick your layers are, and you need to use it in a decently ventilated area. I've been pouring it indoors in my crafting room and leaving it overnight with the fan going and the window open and it's been fine.

You can clean the stuff up with mineral spirits like oil paint, but if you're lazy like me, you can just use toothpicks or disposable plastic droppers and mix it in old takeout containers and throw them out afterwards.
