Here's my entire one hour presentation of how to faux paint your props. This was given at this year's KeepFest in Kansas City. Many, many thanks goes to FearCrafters for taping it: http://www.fearcrafters.com/ Subjects were Wood Graining, Rusty Steel, Glossing, Rivets, Acetone, Drylok, Epitaph, Black Dots, Tea-staining, Accent Colors, Drybrushing, Lichen, Stencils, Color-mixing and Griming. Whew....

Thank you so much for posting this.
Any chance we can get a copy of the recipes handout that you gave out at the presentation?
Any feedback you can give on the variations would be great... such as the different ratios of monster mud

Terra,
Fantastic video. You present your ideas very clearly. Do you have professional training as a presenter or something??? :)
I had to laugh when you reached back and picked up the "iron" girder. Hilarious, but it really drove home how realistic you can make stuff look.
You can DEFINITELY "fool the eye"!
