So, for those of you who have been following my latest monster mud prop here is the second part. I noticed that the updates for this project have gotten a little long. I decided that starting another section at the projects halfway point is a good idea.

If you missed the first half of the build, you can find it here: Part 1. If you would like to see the video slide show of the entire build, you can find that here: Prop Build Video.

On to the last half of the build.

I started with a jacket I got at the local Goodwill. The same process was used on the pants section; white glue/liquid starch then several coats of monster mud. Here is the beginning stage of monster mudding the jacket.

I covered the pants, boot and peg-leg with plastic to protect it during this process. A metal angle is used to help support the prop during the build. I have a button I am going to make copies of and glue onto the jacket.

There are a fair number of small "areas" that will hold rain if it happens to get wet, so I have been using caulking to either fill in or help direct any rain off the finished prop. I will end up having to add some paper clay to some larger areas (like the collar folds) to fill in.

It's a long slow process, so I'll update after the final monster mud coating has been applied.
