I have read one or two threads on how to do this, however, they are not to specific (for my begginer's knowledge). I read that you can use testors luiquid cement for this, is that the stuff in the red tube?? any help will be awesome.

Second, I am looking into using Pigments for the first time. I have seen everyone use MIG Productions. My question is, If I do get these products, how do I apply them without having to buy the acrylic resin or plaster to get the mud effect. Perhaps someone out there has a better technique?

Hello Alex, Testors liquid cement comes in a small glass bottle or a little black dispenser bottle. The stuff in the tube is referred to as tube cement and is much thicker, and doesn't bond as well as the liquid type. Liquid cement is a solvent and melts and welds plastic together. To thin putty use the liquid type. Pigments are a powder and can be used as-is to simulate dust or for other types of weathering. If you want to depict mud, then you have to use something which can be built up thicker. Al
