Still more surfaces

I downloaded a design for a hall and tower atop a hill from Thingiverse, which unfortunately I can't find now to link to. It's a pity, since I can't illustrate how it's printed as a single piece, but it doesn't look like that in the painted version.

So, then: masked the base and roof, primed the rest and hit it with stone-textured paint. Painted the "rock" with moss-texture paints, filled the base with sparkly blue ink, and did the top with aged copper. The castle is hollow and sized quite comfortably for a battery-powered tea light.

And I'm acquiring quite the collection of nifty little experiments which I have nowhere to put and no clear thing to do with them. I don't have room for all this stuff!

More Surfaces

I loved the rust paint I did the dragon with that I set off for the same manufacturer's copper/verdigris treatment. Also very, very nifty.

While I was at it, I did some stuff with various paints on some gaming scenery (an OpenForge gatehouse):

And a new dice tower:

It'd be fun to print out a bunch more of the OpenForge scenery for actual gaming use, but since my system of choice uses hexagons instead of squares, that might get a bit awkward.
