Thanks for the compliments. I am going through the closet and moving the Hirst arts to the workshop. I am getting ready to paint the KS.I need the work space.

The new Reaper Sparkling Snow color 09689 is nice for a white sheen too.

I like the speckles better.
I would add a speckle glitter varnish The pink granite would take a high polish and have mica speckles too.
I might try to futz with the granite. Reaper Pearl White is a satin interference paint, so there's a little glimmer already. The more I look at the granite pillar the more I want extra speckling.

For this standalone pillar a polish would be nice, but these are test subjects for my DoD walls, and that seems a bit too upscale for an entire dungeon!

And yes, that's an impressive organization of an impressive selection of paints and things!

That is some impressive organization.

Alot to be said for consistent storage container sizes.

Something to strive for, but doubt I could keep it like that more than a day... entropy abounds in my hobby room.

I'm liking the second one better than the first one with speckles.
Nice job PR. :)

The finer glitter finishes are usually marked sparkle vs glitter. Twinkles are large.

Pink dolomite would also look nice. Pink and white marble is also an idea.

Glitter stocked for summer vacation. The wonderful thing about grandkids is you can hose them off and send them home. :D

They used to do an eight pack with the resin pillars. I wish they would do that for dwarven pillars from KS-3 battlement packs too.
I've painted some KS-1 pillars blue with gold accents and I've seen several colors in Feymous layouts.
They also did a two pack of the Realm of the Ancients pillars. Which I wish they would really bring back because I don't think they were ever available any other way.

Pillar #2 - I'll be doing a bit less than half of my KSV in sandstone. I love Lady Sabelle's latest "shoe polish" sandstone, but lacking shoe polish I had to embellish a bit...

The top and bottom are 2 Cardboard + 2 Reaper Golden Blonde + Stone Edge, with Reaper Brown Ink thinned as a shoe polish substitute, dry brushed with the Golden Blonde. The pillars are Reaper Redstone, drybrushed with 1:1 Redstone + Stone Edge. Decorations are Reaper Darkened Brown drybrushed with the Golden Blonde.

Not a fan of pink but your paint job is spot on with it.
