Icy Dungeon with Dwarvenite 9 Months, 1 Week ago  
Just received my DF tiles yesterday. I've been wanting to try an icy dungeon effect for a while now, so I decided to give that a go first. Here's my first attempt. I'm just a rookie with painting, so I think for a first effort, things turned out ok.

It's definitely not perfect. When I try again, I think I want to use another blue that's darker than the light blues that I used over my normal blue basecoat. Then go a little bit lighter on the drybrushing of the white.

Stefon suggested I seal it with a glossy varnish, to give it a shiny look. Anyone else have any suggestions?

This suggestion might not be easy to implement, but it would be nice to have a gradient from lighter blue at the top to deeper blue at the base, under the dry brushed white. Other than that, what you have would already make for a fantastic ice temple. Now you just need some snow drifts!

Not to add a TON of work to you, but I am wondering what: Dark blue, lighter blue, bluish grey, greyish white, white would look like.

With that being said? I think these look pretty awesome as they stand!

@Null Gradients, now that's a very interesting idea. And I could use blending as I switch from one to another. Hmmm....

@galladril Unfortunately, my paint selection was limited, and I was too impatient to go out and get more paint. I might have to give what you suggested a try. The two light blues were very similar, so there wasn't much difference between them. Worst case, I could take my base coat blue and add in a little white and dry brush that on top of the base coat... Actually, now that I'm thinking about it more, the light blues would probably have been closer to white than the basecoat blue. So adding in another shade or two of a darker blue might help. Thanks for the advice.

Black, if you have it, would also work to darken your icy blue: just use it in *REALLY* small amounts, mix and test before applying to the tile.

Remember, pure blacks and pure whites are normally used as shades, not as colors.

Glad I could be of help, and I'm looking forward to seeing "Round 2!" :D

Ice is NICE!

Very cool - as is is already impressive, if you do the gradient be sure to angle up in the corners so they seem darker it will heighten the depth effect

kudos for being the first alternative paint scheme!

That looks pretty good - I certainly will not be putting my tongue onto those icy walls!

They look great! - thanks for posting and giving the rest of us the tips on how to do it!

I think I'll have to replicate this on a set to go with the Ice Caverns... or rebuilding the tunnel in the Wall in the North!

Some snow flock and some modeled icecycles adorning the walls would do wonders to convey the frozen feel.
