MVP dry cracking mud – Beach Sand pigmented

MVP dry cracking mud – Beach Sand pigmented


1.7 fl oz / 50 ml

MVP stands for Most Versatile Product because, depending on how you use it, you’ll achieve results ranging from ordinary soil to light and cracking or heavy clumped mud. It is spectacular, hyper-realistic mud in ready-mix form. When drying, it creates striking cracks, the intensity and size of which depend on the thickness of the layer. However, if you do not want them, add water. The color is typical of light mud along dirt roads and sandy areas and complies with our pigment.

Acrylic product, non-toxic, without a noticeable odor.

A thick and light paste with a crisp texture. Easily and fast create realistic, multi-dimensional mud. When drying, our paste has a spectacular effect that should always accompany dry mud layers: cracks! By itself, our mud cracks as it dries, and little by little, the impact graduates depending on the thickness of the coating applied, always matching the scale. Thick layers crack into strong, coarse fissures, while thin layers crack into a fine mesh of light cracks, creating an amazing effect. It all happens on its own! The paste, moreover, is very malleable and lightweight and retains the shape you give it, including traces of imprinted wheels, tracks, or shoe marks.

This is a Cultivated Earth color sample!

However, if you want to apply a uniform layer here or there, nothing stands in the way; dilute the product with water about 1/5 of the amount of paste. The water will loosen the bonds, and the mud will not crack while still maintaining its granularity and allowing itself to be freely modulated. Modellers World mud diluted with water is also great for looser splashes.

Directions for use:

  • Unscrew, mix, and play! A metal spatula is best for applying a larger amount to a diorama or vehicle. We then recommend spreading the paste with a fluffy, thick brush—but don’t spread it; tap it on the model.
  • The mud has a beautifully scale-appropriate graininess. However, the technique of ‘tapping’ with a brush with a large surface area, such as the kind used for pigments (powders, essentially), will reveal the texture, offset the strokes of the spatula, and bring realism to the fore. You can also try this effect with a sponge.
  • Mud also contains individual, clumped lumps of pigment that subtly differentiate and modulate color. When you spot one, gently break it up with a paste brush. The effect, when dry, is impressive.
  • The paste can be thinned with water. Remember that adding water will cancel out the crackle effect.
  • The mud can be modeled and touched up for several tens of minutes. After a few hours, the cracks will appear, and this is a sign that the mass should no longer be touched. Full drying is approximately 10 hours.
  • Wet the objects you want to imprint (for example, wheels or tracks) with water so that the mass does not stick to them.
  • Once dry, weathering paints can be used to paint.
  • Once opened, the product should be used within two months. Seal the paste tightly and store it in a dry, dark place (e.g., in a drawer).
  • One box is enough for a standard 1:35 scale vignette or a couple of models. The exact amount depends on the thickness of the layer, the application area, etc.
  • This product is based on our Beach Sand pigment, which means you can use it to dust your vehicle or thicken the mud.

General FAQ

~Frequently asked questions generally about sales on the Modellers World website.

How do I place an order in the store? Do you need to create an account?

Just add products “to the cart,” and go to the cart (for example, by clicking the cart icon at the top, click “go to payment.” You will be redirected to the “to checkout” form the cart. You do not need to create an account or log in unless you have added a Patron package to your cart. Then, creating a password account is required. You can pay through the bank’s format, with a payment card, by providing its number on delivery (in selected countries).

Can I find you in stores? Do you have any distributors?

We have been operating on the market since 2019. The products are entirely manufactured in Poland. Initially, our offer was introduced in most stores in Poland through HOBBY2000 distribution, in the U.K. through Javis, and in individual stores in Ireland, Portugal, and Greece. In 2023, we decided to end indirect distribution and sell by mail order only through our online service to individual customers. This allows us to elevate top quality at a relatively affordable price without the pressure of mass production.

Where are the packages shipped from?

We ship all packages directly from our company, in Poland (city of Bydgoszcz). It is not possible to buy locally. Production is done locally from the best European raw materials.

How long do packages go?

As a rule, orders placed in the morning we try to send the same day, in random cases up to 72h, if the goods are with the status “available” (goods not available immediately have the status “on order” on the product card. We make it up to 14 calendar days, check the “what does the status on order” page in the menu for details). Once the package is shipped, you will receive a link to track the package via email and in my account tab.

Parcels sent by priority mail:

– European countries usually from 5 to 10 working days (Portugal, UK, Island countries from 10-20 days).

– U.S. shipped by airmail; usually 7 to 14 travel days.

– Canada shipment by air shipment; usually 14-21 travel days.

– Asia, China, Japan; usually 25-30 travel days.

What if I order products and the package does not arrive?

Shipments are insured, but we know how stressful it is to wait. When you buy from our store, you are guaranteed that if the goods are lost in transit or arrive damaged, we will refund your money immediately, without waiting for the shipping company to respond. If the damage was not visible on the outside of the package, you only need to send us photos when you receive the package. However, in our experience, lost packages account for about 0.1%, and damaged goods account for less than 0.5% of shipments. Thus, 99.4% of shipments reach the addressee without unpleasant incidents.
