Glorious mud

by

Mud has been a popular weathering effect in the April challenge entries.
Here’s how Konrad Sontag achieved his mud effects. (Photos coming soon when the voting starts).

I started out making the mud on the bottom by diluting elmer’s glue with water and mixing in brown pigment. It makes a real clumpy mud feel, when it dries it looks just like dry mud, when it’s wet it looks like wet mud. Once it dries you can apply gloss varnish to return it to looking wet.
