How to model a muddy pond
Carrying on the puddle theme – this really just a large puddle! I’m using a similar technique to the acetate one I used for puddles as it is a simple way to achieve the muddy effect.
Tools and Materials
All of these materials are commonly available in either a DIY store or art shop. Online shops will also carry them.
- Tile Grout – brown or beige colour – easily obtainable from any DIY store in a huge variety of colours.
- White Glue – I’ve used various brands and now just fill up my bottles with cheap PVA from the DIY shop.
- Gloss Varnish – I use Vallejo in this episode because it is easy to drip but you can use any acrylic gloss varnish.
- Acrylic Paint – any muddy colour – easily obtainable from any DIY store in a huge variety of colours.
- Acetate Sheet – the kind you use for overhead projectors (remember these) or any plastic packaging.
