How to paint clear/transparent dwarvenite

Post by NiandoBG » Sat Sep 28, 2019 11:21 am

Hi DF-Painters,

we got the ice cavern paint scheme video without the tutorial how to paint the wall of ice pieces (clear dwarvenite). :(
I hope we get a tutorial together with a video how to paint the crystal cave encounter soon. ;)

In the meantime I would like to exchange experiences with you how to paint clear dwarvenite.

I added some pictures of my self-painted clear dwarvenite pieces.

After some experiments I ended up with ink-drybrush method.
I use Vallejo Inks (sometimes mixed) and use a drybrush method to apply the color.
Sometimes I finish the piece with a drybrush highlight color.

Please see the pictures.

In general I'm okay with the results. The wall of force looks good if you are not close to piece. Otherwise you see the brush strokes.

In some cases it helps to wash the pieces in soaped water. (I missed the step for the wall of force :( )
