I had this dirty wall problem when painting my tudor walls. After painting the stucco color on the walls, I used a wash made of water and black paint and it showed up as a dirty washed stain over my walls. I then had to dry brush over the walls to clean the stain appearance.

just checked - all mine are appropriately dirty...

Anyone have the same problem as Zach?

I am sure DF would make it right, but this one is SOOOOO easy to fix (even within my remedial skill level) that i wouldn't bother.

From my experience with model Railroads (50 years) black washes are best for oil and coal dust/ash.Use brown washes unless you want it to look greasy. :)

See page 5. Diluted black on the Pokorny drybrush. Mop excess with a paper towel.

ink wash for sure. thinner is better, you can always throw another layer on if first is not enough.

I'm not sure this would provide the look you would want to provide. The pencil would pick up the protruding parts of the dwarvenite whereas I think it would be preferable to get dirt/dark stuff within the recesses, such as with a wash (with very diluted paint).

In the painting guide, Stefan says use a light black drybrush over the stucco color paint.

I think any black wash would do that well, maybe a brown one.

It is a rather large difference isn't it? I only bought dungeon grey so mine all look the same.
