MONSTER MUD A+ • "Most tutorials you will encounter tell you that you want 1 gallon of paint to a 5 gallon bucket of drywall compound.• Truth is, there is no magic formula, just mix some of each and start to play. If you want to be fighting to try to fit 6 gallons of stuff into a 5 gallon bucket, more power to you. • My own recipe is: 1 5 gallon bucket. 1 BOX of drywall compound. 1 gallon latex paint."

I needed something quick and very cheap..the boxes are free...(I send a lot, so I order a lot) I had a styrofoam cooler that I cut up...lots of gorilla glue, then duck tape..my monster mud was way to thick so I used a putty knife like stucco (I like the way it cracked) painted it gray...dryer lint and green craft paint for moss and going to seal it with something like drylock to protect it for a year until I have time to make better ones!
