It does have the advantage over the DF paints of not being glossy. I tried taking pics with my phone and posting them up and it just showed the glossiness. The dry brushing doesn't show under a flash, you are right there. I did the same about going easy on the base coat on my later tiles and it really helps IMHO. My walls are too grey, but my curved walls are much better.

It's fallen off the main page, but I did post a follow-up thread in which I described my mix of the colors to recreate the Dwarven Forge color scheme (although mine is a bit darker):

I also included a picture of the various steps to illustrate the look I achieved.

Reviving this thread. :)

Was anyone able to find a PVC-safe cheap spray paint? I'd like to base coat all my tiles to true black, but I don't want them to get tacky.

Last year I tryed Krylon Fusion for Plastics, but it made my dungeon tiles tacky and difficult to paint. THey would stick together when stored.

Undel,

I myself would not recommend spray paint, is there a reason you want to paint them black? I chose the "mud" like color to be the first coat before your drybrushing to essentially be your first layer of color...black would seem to be too severe as a first coat unless there is a particular very dark scheme you have in mind? Absolutely your call of course, just don't want you to regret it....even If you do regret anything you do, you can remove the paint with simple green very easily as some on the forums here have shown...

in any case, please test anything on 1 piece first....if it is tacky it will usually be apparent right away or at least overnight...

anyway, have fun!

Thank you for the advise! I wanted black specifically for the underdark paint scheme I'm doing. (lots of blues and purples!) It's not a huge difference, but I like building up from the darkest value.

So far my spray paint test pieces are all tacky. So far no luck finding a spray paint that works. (the aerosol is not playing nice.) It may be best to brush paint these all if I can't find something safe to use. It takes more time, but I don't want sticky pieces!

If you just want a black undercoat, get black Army Painter primer. It works great. :)

Liquitex "Payne's Gray" might be a great base coat for your under dark paint scheme.

It's a really dark blue, that's almost black.
