That's just fantastic Kevin, is that the 'hairspray' technique you've used there?

Nice dio.

When you master the art of mud and water effects in the dio please let us all know :)

I honestly think its one of the hardest to replicate as its so easy to make it too wet or over done.

to get wet mud use gloss Build up the mud you want and just add the gloss over it once dry,

you can also mix pigments with gloss and apply them to what ever you are trying this with,

Do a test piece first to make sure you are happy with the effect, If you find its too glossy add a little matt to the gloss to get a not so shiny look.

but your get the best results for wet effects get some Vallejo Still water you can add paint to it to make puddles and mix with pigments to get the wet look mudd.

this is with the Vallejo still water.
