    Note: This is a repost of an old tutorial whose links to pictures were broken with the software update at HF. Here's a way to paint anything to make it look like metal. Even better… how to make it look like grimy old metal. If you need to disguise the original texture, you'll also be using...

    So working on the following in memory of my daughter. Worked out very nice for my first major project. Happy with everything except the hair, someone should do a tutorial on Monster Mud'in Hair. :) Based on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JVNW7UK773s

    I wanted to have a simple shroud over my skeleton cadaver on this tomb. I know many people use monster mud to get the effect but that it is also fairly heavy. Since the shroud really will not be supporting any weight can I skip the joint compound?

    Ok so I have a couple props that I am needing some suggestions on. I built the rake a couple years ago using spray foam, paper towels, and white monster mud. Well last year he started peeling really bad. Need some suggestions on what to paint his with to help him stay together. Also his...

    I was wondering how you like applying your monster mud? I've searched and found various suggestions. I figured I would turn to you awesome folks to get your input.

    I'm making a sign for my front door out of foam. I've found a lot of tutorials for painting foam tombstones, but they all seem to have different approaches to coating/weatherproofing the foam. I've seen tutorials using Monster Mud, Drylock, and Hotwire Foam Factory's foam coat. I'm not clear on...

    Hey all. I've never tried building anything with monster mud. I was wondering if it's the best way to build columns and stones for the graveyard. I've heard that it can deteriorate in rain... that's a bit concerning. I'd hate to put a bunch of work into it and have it crumble. Does exterior...

    Hi, I am repurposing a chair for a chairity auction. I can do anything I want to it, and I want to make a creepy/spooky/macabre kind of design. I can reupholster the seat cushion, paint it, and in the middle of the back, there is some cane that I would like to do something with. I picked out...

    Cosmetology Head Zombies Cut and peeled the skin off of a Pivot Point brand cosmetology head. The rigid foam inside is perfect for carving. Added a thin layer of monster mud (mixed toward the latex side) to protect the foam, sanded down the texture, went through a 3 layer paint process, then...
    Just wondering if anyone has an idea where I can find a tutorial to make this prop
  13. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Sorry if this is something that has been discussed before. Tried searching the forums, but no joy in reaching a solid "yay" or "nay". I see a lot of people use Monster Mud to build up their props and then seal afterwards with Drylok. I'm wondering, would it work to mix latex drylok sealer...
  14. Halloween Props
    Last year was my first year doing a home haunt, and while I did get something decent put together, I didn't have time to finish carving my tombstones. I used Terra's method for construction, and used Dry-Lok for the stone effect. But I can't live with blank tombstones, so I needed a way to...

    So prop #1 is done for the 2014 season. Made this one a little big. Please let me what you guys think.
  16. Halloween Props
    I know that this is the prop section but Monster Mud is most commonly used for props so I thought it was more appropriate. I need a costume that replicates the look and texture of concrete. How flexible is monster mud? Would it simply crack if a person were moving inside it?
  17. Halloween Props
    It still needs the wings, sickle, and some painting, but I thought I would share my first monster mud prop.
  18. Halloween Props
    I'm sure many of you are familiar with the Beloved tombstone by Terra (I'd post a link but this is my first thread, so I'm not allowed to haha) This beauty has been a HUGE inspiration for me this year! Needless to say, I've been dead-set on making one of my very own for my graveyard this...
