Prior to a small friendly tournament in the beginning of June, I finished my gaming board.
I applied a couple of layers of earth/mud brown color with a sponge and large flat brush (using dry brushing strokes, but with quite a lot of paint in the brush)
|Work in progress|
|After three layers of increasingly brighter brown|
|Table ready for tournament!|
- Don't glue the MDF boards and styrofoam together until you are finished with painting
- Work with the whole gaming board all the time, don't do one MDF board at a time, the texture on the three boards will turn out very differently if you do.
- Apply paint in random patterns/circles. Don't work from one edge to another (if you mix new paint at some point, you will have a noticeable change in color on the board)
- Don't use wet sand
- Don't mix glue and sand. Apply glue and then sand.
- You might not want that last layer of highlight color all over the board... :)
