So I've painted up a couple of sample pieces of my 4bot tiles and to try out an ice recipe. I thought I'd get some feedback. It seems a bit too sea glass for me.

Phtalo green (yellow ink) +medium, 20200101_203314.thumb.jpg.49b1aa3a56dc4745eeb2163c8bca39ec.jpgthen drybrush of teal20200101_203351.thumb.jpg.1d229f5da675c1d9f971e46daa99b277.jpg, turquoise,20200101_203434.thumb.jpg.9821ea8112dd817a02cd85e1e7bc0914.jpg pale blue20200101_203521.thumb.jpg.5c69ded938c2c7766768b1d37d25b71c.jpg, and adding white20200101_203600.thumb.jpg.6a271886488b878a0287e47b5fe25314.jpg.

It seems you have the right colors. Both the green and blue can work. I think you need more white and maybe wind striations on it.  If you search Tube U you can find some terrain and base examples- Painting with Marrok seemed to have some good hints (striations and edging in white, etc).

I might see if I have anything else to use as a base. I want some translucence, hence the inks.

And I found a deep turquoise, a phtalo blue (green) - I didnt pay attention which is which(I think the phtalo is bottom right) , and turquoise (top) , which is "opaque."

I kinda like all of those better. Almost feel like it would be cool to have that original phtalo as a colour for the middle of the tile, with one of the others top and bottom. Not sure that's really doable.

Any preferences?

      I decided because I have a bunch of grass boards, that I should do some backdrops for nice dioramas and maybe just regular photos. So I primed (mostly matte medium which I have liters of and a little primer and a tiny bit of craft paint for volume) some of my many cereal boxes.
      Should I do anything more than sky and land/horizon? Tree silhouettes maybe? Got any good examples

      This is a storage box/ terrain house I'm building for my kid's High Rollers set (which was found today and played with all without the knowledge it was a gift).
      Will have removable roof maybe with shingles. Currently  just have walls and door. The extra cardboard from the door will disappear.

      I decided to do the Mystic Circle so I could do all kinds of occult and folk horror scenarios.
      Currently "cooking" in the utility sink. The base parts were pretty warped. I may glue them to some foamcore for a little extra stability, but mostly traced, because I need to keep them " modular" for storage (the arches, I think they still qualify as dolmens, but I forget, will get pulled on and off. Unless it really doesn't work ).

      This will likely be an all June project, because I had an unexpected computer death and porch reno and need to deal with that.

      I decided to do the big treant today to have something that I could do quickly.
      Here's today in a few pics. They got a bit out of order.
      Green beard, orange mushrooms, black + browning shadows, brown + light brown in highlights.  not sure what more I'll do. May not get to paint until the weekend.

      I have a set of walks ways and stairs, and some other stuff coming in summer, so I'll keep it all here.
