The jade looks nice. I am glad I did not get it. It is not the look I want.

The unpainted jade pillar is an interesting problem. I bet it will paint up well. The clear clear plastic has a lot of possibilities. I wonder how hard it would be to remove the paint. Flaming red with an LED.

How do you plain to paint the Jade? Green Wash?
There's an obvious join at the top that looks pretty ugly and limits painting possibilities. You really have to paint the entire top section opaque down to the pillar itself. I suspect the same is true for the bottom join, but the paint is thicker and it's hidden. Whatever you do, it probably won't be in Tamiya Clears or Gallery Glass.

If you don't mind the obvious difference in composition and don't plan on having a lot of light on your builds, the paint color isn't a complete loss. I could see people going along with it. I'm extra color-sensitive; it doesn't work for me as-is and I don't see anything other than an opaque paint job as working well.

Mine look like they have green paint on the inside of the pillar column... not sure if that area is accessible to simple green or the like.

Taken from Stefan's FB page. From what little you can see the set does look nice just can't tell about the pillars.

Here's a side-by-side of an unpainted jade wall next to a pillar.

The difference in color isn't astounding when the pieces are against a background, but they're really brought out when light passes through the jade parts. The wall is creamy, the pillar looks like the light is passing through paint on the surface and remains darker in color.

Here's a light-enabled version... https://photos.app.goo.gl/KwjQqF2WpH3b28RW9

I don't think any painted Shrine pieces have been sent out yet, just unpainted.

I have a bunch of jade pillars (painted) coming. Providing the assumedly painted Jade of the pillar doesn't match the unpainted Jade material on the rest, I am going to ask for DF to replace them with factory replacements that are done right.
