Painted many and slimed few few of my new DF tiles 10 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
They take paint so easily and look great. After a few test pieces ended up with a 2 step dry brush process that leaves them looking great.

After I got done painting a bunch I decided to slime a few, and they turned out pretty cool. I have lots of ground slimes, but did some wall slimes on the DF tiles

Can you do two experiments for me.

1. Take an unpainted piece (preferably with a wall) prime with your black army painter spray primer and do just two drybrushes on it. 1st drybrush with "gray base". Then drybrush with "stone edge". I'm hoping this will get results like this...

Gray Paint Scheme

2. Soak one of your painted pieces in soapy warm water and see if the paint comes right off like claimed in the paint removal thread. This worries me if paint can be removed that easy. I think their example was because it was cheap paint and not primed.

I'd really appreciate it if you can do these two tests as I have not bought any tiles or paint yet but plan to very soon.

Quorthon, I find your slimed tiles completely revolting... Good job!

The shapes are flowing and organic, and really do convey purposeful motion.

Thank you for sharing the how-to, which is also very well done.

@Frog, if you're worried about paint coming off why not just clear coat your tiles after painting them? That will most definitely lock the paint on and keep it from rubbing off from any spills or even normal handling.

The tiles you see painted here are mostly unprimed - I tried a few with priming and a few without in my tests, and with the pokorny paints, you absolutely don't need to prime and also - I didn't do any sealing afterwards - tying it with just au natural paint. ;-).

In some other threads people have tested some other paints that you can check out, but as the pokorny paints will be going on sale soon, you should just get those if you are worried about paint sticking well.

I did priming when I did the CoS, but the final step I used in the CoS was sealing with shellac, so that paint is never coming off(short of flame or a belt sander) - the shellac will seal it in well.

got a lot of questions on how i did each of the effects on the glue in the game tiles - I used 4 main effects other then just the natural sliminess of the glue

love the slimes... especially the last one - the tendrils make it look like it is seeping out of the wall and congealing into malevolence... oooohhhh, you made me wax poetic ;)

Re:Painted many and slimed few few of my new DF tiles 10 Months, 3 Weeks ago  
Quorthon13, thank your for answering my questions and I noticed on your blog you have tons of pics that actually look like what I requested above. If I only do "base gray" and "stone edge" I'll get the look I want so if I get unpainted tiles I'll go with those two colors in Pokorny paints.

It's good to know it is just the cheap paint that comes right off as mentioned in that other thread. I'm still going to prime with the black army painter because I hate the dark brown base tint of the unpainted tiles.

I will be using your suggestions for Liquitex Glossies to do Chamber of Sorrows paint scheme, probably 1.5 to 2 whole sets worth. I might experiment with dusting them with silver paint like you did with the gold. I think the silver tinge would look cooler, and gel with my gray stone scheme as well for the other tiles. Rather than a pool of blood I'd make an altar out of part of a stair pack with 2-4 bloody columns

Oh and the slimed tiles look great!
