The Gallows,Priming Bones with Pokorny Paint, A test


Recommended Posts

Ive decided to run a little test to see how well Pokorny Paints from Dwarven work on bones as primer.

I decided not to cover the entire thing just so people can see the contrast.  While is a bit thicker than the traditional brown liner you can see it keeps the detail nicely.

I will finish the first coat then I will do a Agrax Earthshade wash.  Now I wouldn't recommend this paint for the smaller miniatures..but larger ones it seems to work pretty good

First complete base coat.  Detail held pretty good I'd say.  I also made too much paint so I painted the small torture chamber stuff along with.

Here is after two coats of dry brushing.  All paints used are Pokorny (Stone edge Dry Brush. Terracotta Dry Brush, Base Wood)  I also painted some torture chamber...I will present more pics of those later.  Next step is a wash  I will do just the top at first.

Looks good to me.  I have used these (pokorny paint) on bones a bit too, though not the wood colors yet.  Did you thin them much at all?  I found I could only put very little water in before the hydrophobicity (it's a word?) of the bones material made it pool up.  Did tris happen to you too?  Also, do they feel a little rubbery after the primer coat?  I'm wondering if I have been putting too much on my first layer.

 

I look forward to more experimental results!

I used it straight out of the bottle.  Just like you would liner.  I think a big part of it is how you apply the paint.  I sort of glob it on and spread it like butter.  You have to move quickly though as it seems to dry fast.  Sometimes I would get pooling but that was from me not wiping my brush good enough after a rinse.  I also tried base grey on the bottom of my stockade for the stone work. 

One issue I would say is sometimes it doesn't get complete coverage.  I found that sometimes the crevices wouldn't receive paint.  So I would have to go back over and pick them out. 

As to rubbery nope cant say I do.  You may be putting it on too thick.  Its hard not to do.  I might try this on some bones soldiers that I have and see how it effects smaller details.

Well I was hoping this test would be successful as I have a lot of large minis to paint and would need way too much liner to prime them all.  I have a nice big bottle of black just sitting here waiting to be used.  Had plenty of paint left over from painting my terrain so I might as well use it.

      I have a set of walks ways and stairs, and some other stuff coming in summer, so I'll keep it all here.
      Today was base coats. Tomorrow will be drybrush snd details.

      Just some more finished terrain from the Shadowfey set from Printable Scenery.

      All were printed on my Ender-3 with the exception of some of the branches, the stump, and the bones, which were done in resin on my Elegoo Mars.
