Is that before or after your clear shellac spray?

it is before the spray with the shellac - perfect match.

After the shellac they were a tiny bit glossier then the factory painted - but it was not really noticeable at table top distance. But after shellacing them, I know they will stand up to play(i let my kids use the tiles).

Quorthon13, do you have to dilute the Liquitex paint? If so how much?

Someone asked if anyone had tested Quorthon13’s method...

I did and it works perfectly - or at least acceptably - if i was a better painter it would be perfect!

Primed with Army Painter Matte Black

2 coats of Liquitex Glossiess Red - squishing down in the cracks good to get the red everywhere

Let dry overnight (mainly because it was late and i couldn’t get to a blowdryer because folks were sleeping)

Heat set with blowdryer.

“Sort of dry” brushed accross the edges and top with black.

Let dry overnight.

Took these pics this morning, but i will to the heat set with blowdryer later. At this point even without heat setting it takes really trying to scrape the paint off with a fingernail and all that does is let the red peek through a bit more.

Mine are the top corners and the bottom middle - the others are DF painted:



What i learned:

2 coats of red is overkill - if anything the factory tiles are less red than mine - the slight muting of the red due to the primer showing through would have been better than the starkness of the pure red and would have let me use less black in stage two.

Trust yourself - My black felt sticky (not mixed well???), but i didn’t trust myself to thin it (i am new to this painting thing) as a result my black coat is too thick and not enough red hints through.

In the end my tiles look good and are very usable. Life is crazy right now, but when i get some time i want to paint some more walls and maybe some curved walls to match. With what i have learned they will be even better and should be indistinguishable from the factory paint.

Thanks to Quorthon13 for figuring it out and sharing - i actually seriously considered spending almost $150 when all was said and done to get a second set from Europe. Now i have the floors i need and the ability to expand out plus a sense of pride that “i made that!”

Quorthon13:

Did you thin your paints or just apply them straight on?

Alas, I did not order an unpainted CoS set during the Kickstarter...but now I am really interested in creating a "Chamber Of Milk & Honey" lol.

Is anyone out there thinking of using their CoS sets for a completely different purpose and painting them accordingly?

Ok, I used the Glossies. Sorry for the crappy pics, my phone's camera doesn't do well with indoor lighting. Can you guess which ones are the prepainted and which are mine?

Hint: They prepainted ones have more gold drybrush.
