Dry brushed the stone.
I attempted a crackle effect with PVA glue, but it didn’t do what I wanted. Happily, I was able to wash it all off before it set.
Instead, I varnished the lava with a bit more gloss medium. Some tiles look better than others, bit overall, its ok.
Tried to do the black on the shoreline texture, as per the various videos, but it didn’t work with the surrounding stone. So instead I painted solid yellow over the thin bits. This created a solid lemon yellow border around the lava, which I didn’t like, so I miked up some yellow-white and put some dabs in.
Not the result I was expecting, but it doesn’t look totally crap, which is a win if you ask me. Looks quite a bit better IRL than in this photo. There are some bits that aren’t blended well, and the result looks a ittle sqare – but that’s inevitable.
Job done, I think.
Next, I will just do a f-ton more standard pieces as per my previous posts.
