If you don't know already, I am making terrain boards. I'm trying to do the best I can do to make them as realistic as possible, I'm using a lot of new techniques or pushing on further with techniques that I already do. To that end I have purchased a woodland scenic rock molds and have cast up and stuck on some plaster rocks now I'm learning how to paint them to my liking. The "its easy just do it like this" video by woodland scenic didn't work quite as planned and its a lot harder then what I expected probably because i'm mixing my own acrylic washes rather then using theirs. That's because it would take me 1000 years to use up all the products and they are relatively expensive.
Test 4, I like the result (not yet finished) but not the red colour. Off to the shop to get some more paint. Plus a few more casts required!!
Stay tuned for more excitement. I have had to create a couple of new units of measure they are called the; The black-current (a "black-currents" volume of paint), a pea (slightly bigger than a black-current), and a "SG" (that's 75% of a shotglass of water). Yes... I know!
They look great at stage 3 & 4...how about just getting them to stage 4 and then seeing how the colors of your other ground cover affect & maybe knockback those red undertones? i think they will...and theres plenty of clay etc layers in rock that throw reds out too....?
Check out image 5 I'm getting close to what I'm after. I will do one more then as you say try it with the flock. You know I love that part
hi..im telling ya the one before is great, you need to stop focussing on the individual rock color and think of the overall layers..like ogres and onions..of the terrain as a whole. the ones i like with some purples/green washes in an occaisional place and itll be awesome!
