    Hi, I was just looking for some pointers on the paint scheme for the grotto. I really like the look they have in the previews in the store – any ideas on what paints to use?

    I went with shades of brown for my grotto pieces. I probably went a little overboard, but I think they look pretty nice. 🙂

    I based with Krylon Cocoa Bean. (This color is also great for any ‘wood’ pieces with deep recesses for a dark brown shadow)
    I brushed some Liquitex BASICS Burnt Umber into the spots that were missed/thin/unreachable with the spray can (covering the grey PLA).
    I did a fairly heavy overbrush of FolkArt Coffee Latte. (lighter tan color)
    Then finished it off with a drybrush of Liquitex BASICS Unbleached Titanium. (off-white/beige)
    I may go over some spots on the floors/walls with a Liquitex gloss medium for a shiny “wet” look.

    I’m still trying to decide how I want to do the water pools on the F1/F2 floors. Suggestions?

    To do the Grotto piece we prime in Black, and dry brush subsequent layers in Army Painter Oak Brown, Leather Brown and Arid Earth.
