Not much of an artist myself but I always just got a basic color and then changed it with another color a bit to get a more realist look. I always try to dry bush it little by little. Tends to turn out better just adding little by little and taking breaks so I don't over do it all at once.
 
Thanks I think that we have most of that stuff, which is cool cuz that means we are going to have a viv project on our hands :blob8: I am so excited, don't worry about the painting so much your tanks look awesome and are coming together great, I think your beardies will be happy with what every you provide them with :D

I've been watching your project and I can't wait to see it finished !

I totally understand you when it comes to painting problems.... I just started grouting and I'm just thinking how cool everything looked when it was just styrofoam :p I haven't gotten to the painting part yet but I'll probably do what everyone's been saying: apply one or two primary colors and then "dry brush" the details with another color to give it detail and highlights, seems to make it much more realistic.

Keep up the good job !

4ft X 22"deep X 24" tall. not TOOOOO bad..but when you add a toe kick, and stack them up together..they ended up being almost 6 1/2feet tall. lol

Very snazzy indeed. Looks like your cabinetry skills paid off on that build. I like the rough weathered rock effects you used that really adds to the decor. Looks like you've got some happy beardies too.

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
