8- Close up of Test piece that shows Cracks in the mud.
*Important Tip!! Mix up all your Mud in advance to make certain colors
match (the mud gets lighter as it dries). We only had to touch up the
corners with gray paint once the wall was screwed onto the frame & seal
all With Thompson's Water Sealer.
You can also add vines (we'll do that next year), shading with a sponge
(next year), Natural or painted Moss (also next year), for whatever aged
look you need.
We also used this technique over foam & more plywood in the crypt. It
*feels* more like stone walls.
