Thanks went ahead and tried to track down the colors you listed originally.

Am I correct in reading your color card that there's no base coat, just muddled drybrushing, accents and lighter drybrushing?
You are correct. I did the first color with a very heavy hand. It didn't need a full base coat, just a foundation of a reddish color.

I am still sculpting for the PM. Just sent off a box of stuff today. One more big piece and I can get back to the Hedges!! It will be nice to get them done and start the casting for the Overlook maze and Labyrinth display. I plan to enlist my husband for casting monkey. ;)

I really love the redstone color theme and am thinking about giving it a try, I was wondering, if you were to do it again, would you swap/replace any of the paints you used for any of the expanded line of Porkony Paints?
Best answer I could give is "maybe." I'd have to play with the colors to really know. I did some experiments on Hirst Art's cavern pieces before touching brush to Dwarvenite, but the results weren't the same because of the differences in texture between the two. I was thinking of doing test painting on an Erinthor mountain set. If/when I do, I will post pictures and a color chart.

Then I did the final dry brushing of Khaki and the whole thing was transformed. I added a few traces of gold, a bit of flocking, a touch of Sepia ink and some floor polish to give it a wet look. And this is the results. What do you think?

Love this color scheme, Lady Sabelle.

Do you think castles are harder, easier or the same to paint, compared to KS1 & 2? (I don't worry about KS3, I bought painted)

I'm sorry you're depressed. Painting is a calming pastime which can relieve depression.

Castles should be pretty easy to paint, easier than caverns. But the decorative elements will be harder. So if you're afraid to paint them, I suggest getting painted accessories and unpainted castles. It shouldn't be too hard to do the castle dry brushing and it will stretch your pledging dollars. Castles will only be 4-5 steps for the factory paint scheme and you'll be sure to have a more even paint job if you do it yourself.
TLW- I'm always depressed by not being able to do something. My professions tend to be so absorbing one doesn't get outside them unless one works at it. As a result if one is decent in one's work, one develops the delusion he's good at everything....painting brings home the harsh truth of that! Actually DOING painting is, as you say, soothing. Unless the result is awful....

I'm very good with words and reason, pretty awful with art. I am mostly convinced by your expert advice that the castle and KS1-2 could be done reasonably quickly. Boy, would it save $$ to get unpainted castles.

Thank you for your advice, kind Lady Sabelle.

Have you recovered enough to restore home and art to a semblance of reality? Or are you sucked into the PM and fulfillment ends of things?

Jenney has virtually disappeared. I think she has a lot of real world work to catch up on!

It's only a little more involved than the standard painting for DF. True, there are quite a few more steps, but it's still mostly just dry brushing. I even provided the colors I use. Time consuming, but easy.
