PostSubject: Wall Textures - Tutorial Request   Thu 22 Apr 2010 - 7:39

Well, I haven't yet started painting my scenery. So right now I'm thinking what technique to use for the texture walls.

It would be nice to have some sort of tutorial at the forum showing the different results of using different texturing techniques on a surface.
For example, having pictures showing the different results like:

Wall Filler (flat surface):
1.- drybrushed
2.- Washed/ink

Pink Foam texturing:
1.- Drybrushed
2.- Washed/ink

White glue applied with a rough brush:
1.- Drybrushed
2.- Washed/ink

White glue + fine sand:
1.- Drybrushed
2.- Washed/ink

White glue + toilet paper:
1.- Drybrushed
2.- Washed/ink

Plain flat foam core surface:
1.- Drybrushed
2.- Washed/ink

Premade resin/plastic surface (premade building):
1.- Drybrushed
2.- Washed/ink.

etc.

I don't know, I haven't seen so far a document online like this before. What do you think? It would be nice for noob players like me that have just entered the hobby to have such a reference to better choose the technique for the desired effect.

rawr!

That is a fantastic idea! Smile So, when will we get this tutorial from you Pirexian? Wink

What I can offer at this point is a link to Cianty's homepage.

http://cianty-tabletop.blogspot.com/

He does a lot of scenery painting and you may find something you like.

I couldn't make each tests :S.. I don't have all the materials for instance (still can't find a local place to buy pink foam...)

But I could go seaching on the web for different pictures of the results... and try making a comparison of pictures and post it on a thread... But then again, the thing is to compare.. you can't really compare the textures and results when a piece is painted with a different tone, the
camera and the lights are set in different way, the surfices are made with different materials and/or paint brands, the paint skills of the author are in different levels, etc..

Thats why I think that it would be best if somebody with the materials (and time) could make just little samples of each technique and take pictures in a controled environmet (?)..


You don't need an entire building for each technique.. Just a flat squre of 10x10cm should be more than enough.. I guess, anyhow this was just an idea xD maybe somebody has already done this and is willing to share ;O;---

I second this idea, i find myself asking everyone how they textured their walls.

Another method is textured spray paint which works well if you apply unevenly.

Humm an interesting idea. I personally dont use all those techniques listed. Maybe it would be easier if everyone just posted 1 or 2 of their favorite techniques, why they like it and how they do it?

I will work on getting a few of my favorites over the next few days.

Here's one
I buy a bag of dry wall finish plaster. If you use it just for models it will last forever. The premixed plaster will crack easier and spoils after a year or so, and is harder to thin out.

For foamcore walls with some texture I mix the dry plaster in a small dixie cup with water until it is pretty thin. About twice as thin as white glue. I paint it on with a paint brush in a thin layer. You don't even need to cover every piece of the wall.
I see a lot of people putting plaster on their walls way to thick, for me. You don't need very much plaster to break up the smooth foamcore surface.

My current texture of choice is premixed concrete patch.

There is no need to do any mixing, and you can thin it with water. It also makes a great filler straight out of the tub and dries rock hard. I use lots of cardboard, never had a problem with warping walls etc. Not a recent picture, but this might give you an example.

Before...



And after...

First, apply 1 part tacky glue and 1 part water generously to the wall where you'd like texture.

Use one-ply toilet part (or just pull two-ply apart, since this is more commonly available) and stick pieces to the wall. Great faux-plaster results in about an hour!

Only just stumbled across this interesting thread…

Textured walls, Quase-style…

From reinforced cardboard, I cut out 4 walls and I cut out the windows, regularly proof-fitting the plastic windowframes, to be sure n cardboard was visible behind them, and ensuring I didn't cut holes that were too large

Then I cut out 4 pieces of newspaper in the same size as the walls

I pressed them together into little balls

And I flattened them out again and glued them on the walls with watered down PVA. The newspaper will soak up the PVA, making it nice and hard.


The next day (PVA needs it’s drying-time) they had warped a little, but nothing too serious... Will need a way to remedy that, but, first things first, I cut out the windows again, out of the newspapers this time (easy, as the holes were already there in the cardboard)


With the help of a length of my precioussss balsa-wood (which is actually way to expensive to use for this purpose...) I used PVA to reinforce and straighten out the walls.
Added bonus of the balsa : it'll give me a bigger surface for when I'll be glueing the building to it's base.
Add some clothespins to keep them into place, and call it a night, so the PVA can dry out nice and easy.


Lots of steps later, I painted the building, and now the walls look like this (paint and drybrush)

This is one of the first buildings I did . It is very thin pva glue with toilet paper draped over it .

I then painted it black and used a heavy dry brush of white and blue leaving a bit of black at the edges to give it some depth .

You can make the texture as smooth as you want by taking a wet brush over it while it is still damp .
