Cracked Desert Bases Using Crackle Paint
After seeing a great video making dry mud using some unobtainable material from the UK, I decided to give DecoArt Texture Crackle(brown), and Tim Holtze Distress Crackle Paint(Antique Linen). I am pretty pleased with how both materials worked. It did take all night for them to dry, and I have not figured out how to keep the chunks from falling off, but with the power of resin casting I can stand to ruin the master in order to make a better mold. One of the key advantages of this stuff is that in addition to looking realistic, it can be painted around embedded objects such as skeletons, rocks, or any other bit I might want to add to a base.
