Izner's Custom Terrain (NEW: CLEAR SWAMP TILES!)

I'm turning this thread into my general terrain thread. I figured a new thread for more tiles would be a little redundant.
Anyways! Scroll down to see my new works.

Without the help of Talyn's thread, Resin Cast Terrain Tiles, and Instructables.com These would have never existed. Thanks, Talyn!

.:Lava Tiles----------------------------------------------------------

Note: The darker red lava tile is an official molten lava tile. (The lava field tiles are official too.)



I was trying to get something slightly transparent, sort of like the 1st edition water tiles. My first attempt came out too clear, my second attempt came out too solid. The margin for error is slim. Regardless, neither one looks really bad. They fit pretty well too.



Making the tiles took a bit of trial and error. The resin I was using was designed to set in 2-4 hours, but for some reason my first batch literally solidified as I was pouring it out of the mixing cup... Hence the radiant brick of plastic above. My later batches worked fine tho. Go fig.

.:Swamp Tiles--------------------------------------------------------


So now that I've got my mold release, and I'm done with school, it's back to work! But I put the lava aside, to try something a little different. Swamp Tiles! The normal swamp tiles just didn't look swampy enough... I wanted to create something transparent, yet somewhat solid at the same time. Something that would convey the 'shallow water' feel that the game rules give it.



These were made much the same way my lava tiles were created, using green and yellow pigments instead of the neon orange. After they were formed, I dabbed the underside with a sponge, using an olive colored paint. It's a little hard to see in the photo, but it resulted in a very nice alge like undercoat. SUGGESTIONS: Don't forget to wash off the mold release, or the paint won't stick. Also, spraying the paint afterwords with some clear coat will help make it last.



With some of the left over resin, I made some counters. Poison maybe?



The little bit I had left in the mixing cup made an odd little puck. Perhaps something will come of it yet.

I'll be getting back to my lava tiles next... and perhaps trying some 2 part molds, if I can ever figure out how to make them...

.:About---------------------------------------------------------------


My tiles were made using Smooth-Cast 327 (Color Match, Slow Setting)
The pigment for the lava tiles is Ignite Fluorescent Orange Pigment
The pigment for my swamp tiles were generic green and yellow pigments.
My mold was made using Smooth-Sil 920 (Silicone Rubber Compound)
All of these can be found at Smooth-On.com

As always, comments and suggestions are appreciated!

Awesome! I like the more solid looking ones, they really look like they're glowing!

Re: Clear Lava Tiles!

I can see the pics, nice job. I actually like the more transparent ones, both look great though.

Re: Clear Lava Tiles!

Must be just me then, because I don't even see "broken picture" placeholder to let me know that something is there.

Sorry, I'd upload the pics to HeroScapers instead of my DeviantArt Page, but it says I don't have permission. I don't know what else to do.

Re: Clear Lava Tiles!

No problem, I figured out what is going on. I went in and cleared out my "show images" option in CP, when I came back to this thread the images showed as links to deviantart. When I tried to go there, my work firewall stopped it. That's why they don't show up when I come into the thread normally, so I'll take a look at them when I get home.

Re: Clear Lava Tiles!

Those look awesome! I love the darker lava tiles. They give so much more life to the other pieces. Great work!
