I just made a haunted tree which was my first experience with monster mud. I loved working with monster mud and the tree looks great! I would however like to know if there is a protective coating I should put over the monster mud to protect it from the elements, i.e. heavy rain. My prop will be displayed outdoors.

Thank you!

Joe,

Drylok... A haunters best friend. Expensive but well worth the money. If you're going to be doing a tree invest in the 5 gal bucket 105.00 or so. Post some pics we would all love to see what it looks like.

Thanks

I've used Drylok for tombstones. I wasn't sure if it was the best solution for monster mud.

I will post a photo of the finished tree.

I used a clear water based brush on sealer for monster mud. I think the dullest you can get in most brands is satin, but it doesn't add much shine to the finished product. If it is to shiny, you can hit it up quick with some sandpaper to dull it down.
