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???

 

And Thanks!

      So I finished up the Oathsworn Mystic Circle and Runestones from the latest KickStarter....
       
      Pentacle by itself:

       
      Circle with the different inserts


       
      The Runestones:


       
      All together:

       
      Was a Fun thing to paint....
       
      Thanks for looking!

      So I got the box in August of 2015, and proceeded to paint the terrain portions of the box...
      (WiP here)
       
      Now it is finally time to start on the main piece of the box!

      I spent much time last night removing mold lines....
      Then scrubbing all the parts....
       
      Hey! I am using Bones Superglue on Bones!
      I glued his hind right leg, and tail to the body, and will be doing some putty work after my postings tonight...
       
      As a side note, the blocks of wood with the single nails are the ones I used when I was painting Takhisis, over a year ago now....
       
      I plan on using Blue Liner as my primer, and will be air brushing it on....
       
      So I hope you all will follow along, because most of the initial work will be done with my air brushes....
       
       
      PS I was talking with our Haminister of Trooth whilst taking pics, and we agree that if you could get 2 (or more!) of the same wings from this guy, they would likely make cool looking sails / masts for a fantasy ship!

      Oathsworn's fourth kickstarter project was Clan McFiggin, a set of 12 dwarf brewers, back in 2014.
      Time to get this party started!



       
      This is Ancient McFiggin, the eldest of the lot, and presumably prime taster for the brewery.
       
      There is something strange going on with his mouth. Not sure what is supposed to be what, so I went for dentures. Possibly is should have been the upper lip. Whatever.
