Grungebob's Dungeons new pic Jan 2010

OK, I have been working on a project. I am using foam board and a low temp glue gun to cionstruct 3d terrain. I was at the store the other day to get some supplies for a home improvement job, when something catches my eye. Krylon has a new spray paint called H2O. It is water based and says right on the can that it can be used on foam. Now any of you out there who have done any work with styrofoam know that spray paint melts it... Not this stuff. In the past I have had to painstakingly paint my custom terrain by hand, but now it is very quick. I'll be posting some pics later.

Very cool find GB! I gave up styrofoam for the pink insulation stuff awhile back because of the spray paint problem and because I would often get lingering indications of the little "beads" in the styrofoam.

Does this paint help at all with the "bead" effect?

Looking forward to the pics...

I am talking about tyhe pink insulation. It is also considered Styro, and does not accept spray paint AFAIK. Here are some pics: I am sorry about the size. I have a new camera and am having dificulty with adjusting the pic size:









I included this last pic as I have a new macro setting on my camera so I can now show off my mini painting skills

Bah! I wish I could paint like that. Sadly I have unsteady hands.

The insulating foam has long been a godsend for terrain in 40k. Having somethin you can spray it with is nice too. Is there a sealer available as well?

This is not the path I thought.
This is not the place I sought.
This is not the dream I bought,
just a fever of fate I've caught.

How do you do the carving? I've thought about similar work, but the carving never seems to work out.

GB, how did you get that coloring effect with spray paint?

I am assuming that you can use any sealer once there is a coat of paint over the foam.

You can dry brush the model with different colors for different effects. I used an azure color to give the room an eerie glow. I also use brown and grey dry brushing as well.

Those are really cool GB. Lord I wish I lived closer to you so I could pick up some of these techniques I have some artistic skills but no techniques to back it up.
