I have always wanted to try my hand at using monster mud and this was my first attempt. It was a lot of messy fun. I used 2x4's as a frame and chicken wire for the body. I used burlap and monster mud for the robe. I painted it with gray and black paint. My wife let me use an old latern to finish him off. We had an early snow fall and he was left outside to collect snow so I put a Christmas wreath in his hand!
