Yep, basically how I was doing it - trying to get gravity and wicking effect working together.

I have not had an issue with de-laminating tiles so I have never had to do anything. I enjoyed the post :!:

As an update, I've tried to duplicate @pacarat's method and it does work quite well. Here's the before and after:
Thank you so much, astrolat!
I have a bunch of partially-delaminated Lake Expansion tiles on which to try this out.

(Sorry for all the dust speckles, the iphone camera picks them up like mad! I couldn't even see them myself.)

Process:

I took Vallejo Game Inks green and painted it over the crack on the edge. It starts getting drawn up almost immediately. I also tried adding one drop of Liquitex flow-aid, which I think improved results. I also tried setting the tile on end in a puddle of ink:

both overnight and for about half an hour, but the side that actually improved was the one on the top edge, and the one on the bottom didn't get noticeably better than it did with just painting, and it gets on the stone if you do this.

So my overall recommendation would be:
- Take Vallejo Game Ink green and add one drop of flow aid
- Paint it heavily along the edge with delamination--you want basically a small puddle of ink covering the crack
- Stand the tile on end so the painted edge is on the top
- Wait 10-15 min and repeat on another edge

Caveat:

This obviously means you're getting liquid into the crack, and that might actually make the delamination get worse over time. I've only done this literally yesterday so I don't have longer-term results. I'll update in a week or so if I notice any changes.

Not to be critical but I think I would prefer the tile if the fix made it look a lot closer to the original
I agree myself! I need to get more colors to get the color match right. But I figured it was worth posting to show that the other qualities of the paint work reasonably well (the translucency etc). :)

I have tried with some success to get green ink flowing into the delaminated area.

It cuts down on that bright light greenish delamination.
Yes, please tell us more! :D
