TOPIC: Painting the Pool in the Chamber of Sorrows

I just painted the bottom of the pool grey. Drilled a hole in the middle big enough to stick my finger through. Then I cut out several patterns that I printed on card stock, just under 3 inches (76mm) in diameter. And, voila, you have a pool, pit, gate, etc. No painting required.

That is an elegantly simple solution with great versatility. Makes me wish I'd pledged for an unpainted CoS.

And my compliments on using the small stairs to dress up the square pillars made by stacking pedestals. Very nice.

I poured some Realistic Water into my pool last night; looked at it this morning and it seems to be coming along nicely.

I've never used Realistic Water before; could I use it with a little red or green paint to maybe put some blood or ooze puddles on my tiles, or would it not work/look terrible?

As I understand, you CAN mix paint into Realistic Water, but you need to go VERY easy on it. A drop or 2 goes a REALLY long way.....again, this is all based on what I have heard / read.

You posting that it works is enough to make me want to try it, though. :)

Any chance of a pic when you are finished?

Based on my gelatinous cube making experience, I would suggest ink or pigments for tainting realistic water, not water-containing paint. I might be wrong though...

It was my first time with Realistic Water and I think I put it on a little too thick, as there were a few bubbles I couldn't get rid of, but here it is:

Looks awesome!

I bet you could use that on the upcoming Caverns dwarvenite to make icey walls and floors to semi-replicate the Ice Caverns resin set!

I just made an insert with a stone pattern and grate in the middle. I've attached the image file if anyone wants to download it. I added a tab on the side so you don't have to drill out the bottom to push the insert out.

The image is created at 300ppi, nicely hi-res.

Here's my second attempt at adding a removable water insert to my Pool of Sorrows. The first attempt failed during curing - some sort of uneven drying occurred and created a void. In my first attempt I tried tinfoil, but that didn't work too well for me so my wife suggested using wax.

I ended up using a blue crayon from my kids' set and thoroughly applied it on the bottom and sides... making sure to stay within the lines as I was taught in kindergarten ;-)

It should be mentioned that I used Vallejo Still Water as that's what my local games store where I buy my stuff from carried. I also added a single drop of Vallejo blue ink to the liquid solution and mixed well before pouring it in.

Just to be sure it cured properly because it was poured fairly thick for the type of product used I let it set for about 36 hours instead of the recommended 24 hours.

Now, to the best part... once it was cured I simply took my wife's hairdryer and melted the wax on the highest setting. It visibly pulled away from the pool edges and I was able to flex the tile to loosen the bottom for it to come out. Next, I cleaned the pool and bottom of the water mold insert with soap and water. Lastly, I added my printed grating insert (posted previously) and then my water mold insert over it (see pics below). It should be noted that I needed to trim the printed grating insert a decent bit to get it to fit properly. I'll modify the file I posted later as well as post a more thorough guide with pictures as to my process.

The whole point of doing a removable insert was to create multiple inserts for a wide variety of scenes. I've done some small scale tests (thanks, Mythbusters!) for blood and a green, stagnant pool and will be updating with more pics of those.

Great job on the removable insert.

This is one piece I don't have that I certainly would like to have... and if I did have it... I'd like it to be modular in this way.

I look forward to a more complete tutorial with pics etc because I envision myself trying this wax method... and an hour later our world ending in chaos as the only option is some form of nuclear explosion to contain the madness.

That looks much better than the paint inserts I made.
