How to Model Damp Earth

How to Model Damp Earth

Most countries in the world will have damp earth somewhere.  It is universal and they all share common characteristics; the earth is normally darker than the surrounding dry earth and is glossier where the water is actually sitting.  It is often smooth due to the action of the water running over it.  A culvert is a great example of an area where damp earth will sit most of the year round.

This video covers how to use Mig Mud for the damp earth, how to colour it and get that shiny look using epoxy resin.
