Game Tiles Painting Experiment...

Great success!

I went to town on some test pieces this evening, and here's the end result.

The Undead do not abide the Living.

All done with craft paints:

Americana Zinc base coat
Americana Neutral grey and Folk Art Coffee Latte bricks
Folk Art dry brush of Mushroom
Folk Art dry brush of Steel Grey

Now, on to the assembly line!



  1. So how long does it take to base coat a set? Thanks for the recipe!!!

    1. It's been a long process, because I batch paint about 30-40 tiles at once. Getting everything grey took two people maybe 3-4 hours each, so ~8 hours there. Then, basecoating the individual bricks for a batch could be anywhere from 30 mins to 2 hours, depending on the complexity of the piece.

      All said and done, I'd imagine it takes ~3-5 mins per piece to paint to this standard, not allowing for time to dry.
