Need to create realistic mud to muddy up your latest armor project?

Here’s my tip and it’s simple.

Start with Squadron Green Putty, 1. Mix in paint until you reach the desired color, 2.

Mix thoroughly for an even color, 3. Use a beat-up paintbrush to apply the mixture to the model, 4.

The nice thing about the Squadron putty is that it gives you about 15 minutes of work time, so you can go back with the brush and stipple the putty for the desired clumped-up effect.

Next, weather the mud on the model using the drier, lighter mud on top and the darker, wetter mud on the bottom, 5.

That’s it! 6
