I'm trying to get a couple of these gate columns done by halloween - here is where I'm at on the first one. I've put foam in areas where I'm shooting for a masonry/cement look and want those parts to look old, cracked, etc.

Any ideas on a good methodology for this effect? I have some monster mud I thought I could use to give it a stony look and hide the seams of the foam pieces. Thanks for any creative suggestions for aging those areas (as well as the 'brick').

Use Restore 10X in a Grey. After the first coat dries, apply a second coat perpendicular to the first, then lightly drag a very wide brush across it. When it dries it will look like a rough concrete.

For the stone texture I always add sand on top of the wet paint and then rub it around. After that is dry I give it a second coat of paint. As for filling in the seems
I sand the seem down then fill it in with outdoor window caulk. (Paintable)
