H&A Muck is specially formulated using an organic material to give you the easiest to use and most realistic looking muck on the market. H&A muck can be mixed with warm water and applied with brush or spatula. It can be used to simulate muck on tires or undercarriages. Clear coating is not necessary. Try adding H&A muck to a medium gloss mix to create a still wet look. Paint can be applied after it is dry
With this product, you can easily model the look of the black muck normally found in wet wooded areas and swamps the world over. As with our other powdered products, you can use MUCK wet or dry to model various aspects of the "real world." MUCK can be used dry as a weathering powder for creating coal dust stains, exhaust stains around engine exhausts, or as powder stains around gun barrels, Of curse, it makes great "muck" too. Just mix with water to the desired consistency and apply onto your model and/or GROUNDWORK. You can mix a small amount of artists gel medium into your MUCK mixture to achieve a wet look even after the mixture has dried. If you are modeling vehicles and/or figures, you will want to push the wheels or tracks into the still wet MUCK for that "stuck in the muck" look. Make sure to press your figure's feet into the MUCK to create tracks where the figures walked into the scene
MUCK can also be used to model volcanic sand as was encountered in the Pacific during World War Two on islands such as Iwo Jima. When modeling volcanic sand, you will want to achieve a dry look, except where the ocean waves have touched the beach. Use dry MUCK to model the sand, using a little clear gloss paint to "wet" the sand at the water's edge. Don't forget that wet uniforms tend to look darker than dry ones. Use a slightly darker color of your base uniform paint to finish those areas of the figures' uniforms which would have gotten wet from wading onto the beach.
