Hi Astolat,

Thanks for the link.
I like the textured Orb a lot.
Might even be a map of the whole world, if it is a ball instead of a disc. :?:

Being late to the party is sometimes helpful.
I decided to wait to paint the cluster crystal and try to match them with my KS 6 crystal cavern encounter.

Sidenote:
I have an unpainted KS 2 mushroom set as well.
I‘m curios if I can match them at least a little bit with the KS 6 mushroom paint scheme.
I hope we get a tutorial video for the mushrooms, too.
I also like the orb. 8-)

I hope we get a tutorial video for the mushrooms, too. :!: :!: :!:

I had many struggles trying to get the orb on the color-changing column to have smooth transparent color. :P Here's the long version:

viewtopic.php?f=48&t=8621&hilit=dip#p120583

the tl;dr version is, mix a thin wash of vallejo game inks and dip the dwarvenite into the wash, remove excess, and let dry between several layers until you get the color you want.

I tried a floor wax wash.I would have had better control if I dry brushed the swirls white first. I wanted to use the DF brand paint. I should have used another drop of water. It was a first try. It looks ok on the table.

Image

The floor wax is best if you want a gloss custom color.Matt medium is better for flat.

Image

This is yellow and red gallery glass finish.
There are so many ways to do this, I want to see a video.
I have several sets of professional blended washes They are nice. But I often need a 750ml.It helps to have mat medium.

The blue flame can now double as a water spout as well. These look great!

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 :( )
