Does anyone know if you can substitute ceramic wall tile cement for wall filler when making monster mud? I have got hold of a large tub of this stuff and I wondered if it was possible to use it for M.M?
Not sure how the cement will react to a water-based latex paint. Try mixing a small batch with some exterior latex paint, then apply over a plastic skull, let it dry and see how it does. It may end up cracking or become to brittle. I know the guys at Hollywood Haunters successfully made some tombstones last year using a cement based mortar mix and latex paint which is similar. The only problem with the cement mixture is that once it dries it becomes hard so it's not very flexible if trying to use on a cloth material.
