Phase 1 of my zuzzy mat project is hereby completed. *insert merry laughter and cheering crowd*
The last week or so I’ve posted a few status updates, and now it’s finally done. Well, not 100% done, but completed for now. Explanation below!
The final stage of my mat was simply to wash it. This was pretty nervewrecking as I didn’t want to ruin the entire mat, but after some try-outs on the sample piece I went along and did it – And as you can see, it didn’t look very tasteful.
At this stage it looked like baby-poo. I’m a father and know these things.
Ah, What have I done?!
After a day of drying though, it didn’t end up as bad as I initially feared.
Ah, Look what I’ve done!
And here we are with some random terrain scattered across it, zoomed in – Monster trees.
There, Phase 1 completed. Since I’m aiming for a winter/tundra themed board, I’m obviously going to need to paint some snow as well, but for now it’ll have to do. I still need a big bottle of acrylic white paint before I can do that. Hopefully I can give it its maiden voyage tomorrow, with some Mordheim!
Drybrush (Dryroller?) – Warm Gray
Brickwork – Cadmium Red, Deep
Crevices – GW Black ink, or Chaos black and water.
Wash – Burnt Sienna mixed with Raw Sienna and a lot of water.
Special thanks to Sho3box for posting an excellent tutorial!
