I need help aging...

my props!

Seriously, I love building, but I have no clue how to age. I think I'm just nervous. I spend all this time planing, carving, and painting -- and it looks good. Too good . . like new! :rolleyes:

I know there are some tutorials and other threads that touch on the basics of aging your props. I am mainly looking to age tombstones, and possibly some structures like the cider hut, mausoleum, and towers.

I live in the Northwest, so we have rain and moss as strong aspects to aging. I know what I like, but not how to get it.









If no one can help, I'm gonna have to call Litemareb4xmas, JohnnyAppleseed, and YardHauntJunkie over for a "prop aging" BBQ!! :D

My stuff has aged naturally over the years..dust,dirt,cobwebs and wet leaf stains. Recently I was looking thru old halloween videos and noticed how much better my stuff showed up when it was new and freshly painted. Anyone else notice this? Those wet maple leaves really do a number on tombstones so maybe that is a look you can go for.
