Before you give up on the runestones (if you were) have you thought about maybe doing a coat of a clear paint then a gloss coat over the 'gems'? unless of course they're supposed to be diamonds, then ignore me :P

Thet were supposed to be different kinds of gems crushed for use in the creation of the runes...

an overall coat of gloss /water effect would not have the 'Faceted' effect of individual bits that I was hoping to achieve....

 

Anyway, here is the pool, painted with water effects...

and in the greater circle...

and the re done pentacle part, after re prime, Stormvermin fur, VMC Khaki, Codex Grey, Fortress Grey, and Secret Weapon Stone wash....

I should have cut the wash more, and added the different inks before the wash...

as I think it is to dark, will likely re do the dry brushing....

Good work!

 

Are you still thinking about doing crushed gems for the magic circles? Regular old sand might be worth a shot; it takes paint and/or inks pretty well...

What about crushing up some of those crystals used for making EZ Bake stained glass?  This article used them to simulate real gems, but crushing them up might give you the look you are going for?

Looks great!

 

But given that "rough coat" is no longer sold, what might someone use as a substitute?

Chis Palmer was using something in his Homer Simpson terrain pieces...

Maybe you could ask him???

      Painting up a rat dude for a Pathfinder game I'm in. I wanted to go with an albino white rat look. I had trouble getting the skin to come out right at first. I'd gone with a medium caucasian skintone (Vallejo Medium Flesh), washed with GW Carroburg Crimson, and then highlighted with Vallejo Highlight Skin, a very pale skintone. I wanted to go with a high contrast. It ended up not working quite as well as I had hoped. Adding in some Reaper Old West Rose where the Medium Flesh showed helped a lot. In the future, I think I'll either add a midtone in between the two skin colors, or else start with a pink like the Old West Rose. The end result isn't too bad, but I think I can get there faster, and with a less mesy looking result.
       

       
      I used my Scale 75 steel alchemy set, using their guide for a more blue steel for the sword and chainmail. I think I'll want to add in a bit more of a neutral steel color for the midtones. Right now, it's coming across too blue and green. After that, I need to finish up the fur cloak, do some finishing on the leather belt, and add some basing.

      So I got my cut of Bones 3 from the person I went in with, and decided that the first thing to get done would be Bonehenge....
      Started by airbrushing with Grey Liner cut 50%, Then Stynylrex Black, then Stynylrez Grey, cut 50% as a Zenithal....
      I then remembered how mad I got at myself for not scraping the mold lines on my DDS 2 terrain, and got busy....
      Was pleasantly surprised that only the 2 upright pieces with lintle stones had anything at all noticeable....
      Then the Black (Cut 50% this time!) and Grey were redone on those 2 pieces....

      Pretty much plan to follow the same paint scheme that I did for my DDS 2....
