Filling in the bow-tie sockets tutorial 2 Years, 7 Months ago  
Hi folks, I'm new to the forums. I recently filled in the sockets of an older set of DF and here are the results and a how-to. Attached a preview pic.

An investment of time but worth it in the end. Thankfully the bulk of what I've got is the newer style but I do have quite a few caverns still to go.

Btw you might also be interested in my painted figs, especially the 25mm D&D collection I've been devoting myself to these past few years. Also on flickr.

Thanks for sharing. They look great.

I appreciate the reminder that you need to carve a line between the stone slabs. If I use my half size bowties (which I have been planning on doing for about two years now) I would not have the look of the newer DF.

Since we are doing this again, can anyone remind me of the Reaper paint colors that match DF?

Nice work. One of these days I have to get around to doing this. Cool blog you have as well, I liked the goblin comparison lineup. The Kev Adams goblin gets my vote. Try Hobby Lobby for replacing the Ceramacote colors or matching with Americana. (put that on your blog too).

Thanks Duncan. I tried carving the lines both before and after the DAS dried and found it was way easier and looked better to carve them after. I made a V cut using a boxcutter and then scraped it with a sculpting needed to roughen it a bit.

Ah, I see Stefan's tutorial is much more in-depth. Cool to see we both used terracotta DAS. It's cheap and great, can't say enough good things about it.

@Arcarius2001 Thanks! Sadly no Hobby Lobby anywhere near but thanks for the tip. Yeah, I've looked over the Americana range as well but there are a few Ceramcoat colors like Hippo Grey which there aren't analogs for in other ranges and I really don't want to do without.
