The Feywood Shrine is the perfect centerpiece for your Shadowfey Wilds table, whether the adventuring party has sought it out or have stumbled upon it in their travels. For the shrine, we painted it as though a tree had been carved into the likeness of an ancient god, and so modified the normal Contorted Trees color scheme to represent an aged wood tone that works well next to the original scheme. Here are the quick and easy steps on how we achieved this.
This guide begins following the Painting Shadowfey: Wild Woods guide to paint the roots, branches and base of the shrine. Which should leave you with a purple and blue statue to begin our guide with:
Step 1) Start off with a drybrush of Steel Legion Drab, followed by Monster Brown.
Step 2) To add an aged, ancient look do a light drybrush with a 1:1 mix of Monster Brown and Stone Golem, followed by a straight drybrush of Stone Golem.
The aged-wood tone is now complete! You’ll see it complements the slightly lighter tone of the living wood without distracting from it.
