How to Fill in your Bow Ties-Demo 7 Years, 7 Months ago  
A while back I promised I would show a step by step demo of how to fill in the Bow Ties-well, here it is...

First fill in the holes...make sure whatever Putty you use that it doesn't stick up higher than the rest of the floor...sanding shouldn't be necessary but if need be then do so. All the types of Putty I used pretty much worked the same. The only thing is I would only do a hand full of pieces at a time: 12 or so, because of drying time...fill in all the holes first and then go back to the first ones to re-shape them as they get harder while drying. The nice thing about the DAS putty is that you don't have to mix it first which is easier on your fingers...if your not used to it, kneading a lot of putty can become tiring pretty quick (for non full time sculptors)

I use an assortment of different types of paints, and Reaper makes good stuff. I also use Games Workshop and still have some old Polly-O! I recently found Howards Hues and they are very fine quality paints that last a long time, (great on the wallet) but require mixing with water quite a bit which is good and bad...more work, but more paint.

Some of the steps listed are perhaps not worth it for everyone...I just can't help myself...rock texturing may be going to far...I found that it is such a small area and that the putty gets a little texture anyway by way of the shaping and handling of my tools.

When painting the dry brush over the grey base, you may be surprised how much yellow is needed...of course, not all pieces are the same color in fact so just use your judgement and paint matching skills (I know you have some!)

I went a little further and added rocks on one piece with some of the extra putty I had. Rocks are real easy to make, just roll the putty against a real rock (the sort with lot's of speckly texture) I didnt glue them and they just stayed but perhaps I should have glued them, I'll pay later I suppose...

Hope this is informative to anyone who may want to do so with their own pieces, or even just a few for display or for quick one room encounters on a small table...

Best Regards!

PS
Fixed the problem I had downloading these pictures in sequencial order...thanks for the suggestions guys, although for some reason they didn't work for me, I even tried to load each pic individually by editing in one at a time...didn't work! I final renamed all of them in alphabetical letters and that finaly worked! Hope that info is useful as well.

wow, what a great tutorial. Thanks much. I love how you just impromptu added a few little rocks off to the side there. Very nice touch. I personally like the things though but I do see that they look very nice with out them. Oh well. As I don't game with them I don't have to worry about it taking too long to put them in. Great blending of the paints. You've done this stuff before haven't you. ;)

Nice job. Now all I have to do is find the time to fill 999 holes. :) BTW I noticed that if your pictures have numbers in the name that the BB puts them in numerical order regardless of the order in which they are uploaded. You could rename your pictures and re-upload them if you wanted them in the correct order.

Stefan i think you have to put them in, in backwards order, it seems to work if you do it that way (i have had the same problem with stuff and i think i got it to work if you do it that way).

I know the bow-tie connector discussion has been run into the ground, but I just want to say that I like the bow-ties, because I build on a somewhat smooth table, and I like to shift whole rooms when I build to change my setups. I am sure that if we took a poll, most DF fans would be against bow-ties. Thanks for posting this though Stefan, for those who don't like'em. Cheers!

No fan of the Bow Ties-Will future sets remove this blemish from the molds! or will older sets always have bow ties?

i made a try filling up the btc with none piece and found an old toothbrush very handy and quick to give it some texture.

and now fueld by your very nice painting tutorial i will go for the remaining btcs... (very soon)


would it be too much to ask for a painting guide for walls?

Thanks Stefan.

I made a try with your tutorial and take pictures of the result. It's great. Thanks !

I use an assortment of Games Workshop paints, and the result are good.

Best Regards!

Gramlot;

That paint looks AWFULLY YELLOW; did you repaint the entire set of pieces?
Anyway, the BTC slots disappeared nicely; good puttywork!

The yellow cast is a result of indoor photography without the use of flash - looks like it, anyway.
