DIY Textured paint


Hello everyone! I’m Karl and today I will be making some
textured paint. I had already shown this in a past video,
but since I will be using it in the next couple of videos, I thought it was better to have
a standalone that I could point you to. To make textured paint, we will be mixing
PVA glue, acrylic paint, and construction sand. The ratio of glue to paint depends on the
color you want to achieve, as with some colors you may need to put more or less in. However, I think I almost always used slightly
less paint than I did glue. Maybe a 3 : 4 ratio. Either way, don’t use your miniature paints
here, or it will cost you a fortune. Regular artists’ paints or craft paints
work fine. Once you have glue and paint in your container,
add a splash of water and start mixing until the color is even. You can then start adding construction sand. Don’t dump it all in one go, add a little,
mix it in, and then add a little more until it’s as gritty as you want it to be. And that’s it, you have yourself a jar of
textured paint. You can make just about any grit you like
this way using finer or coarser material, or make it any color you want, so if you want
red for a martian base, dark gray for ash waste, or blue green for an underwater base,
go for it. In the next couple of videos, I will using
this jar of paint to texture some bases and terrain. In the meantime, thank you for watching, and
see you around!
