I have been experimenting in applying a muddy surface on my models. I have been reading a few articles in a few books and magazines on this. only throwing me ever farther into confusion. I have spent this week attempting these techniques with no good results. Any Advice you can offer would be more than welcome.
I got this from someone on the Allied forum.
For dried mud, wet the surface where you want mud. Using a piece of sand paper or a knife, grind a small pile of pastel powder(use dry pastels). Apply the powder to the wet surfaces, finishing with some powder on a dry brush to get a "dried mud" surface.
Another method is using the real stuff. Check out this article on the IpmsStockholm.org website
