I was curious about the various mediums everyone uses to make their props. Do you pick one vs the other just on personal preference? What are the pro’s and con’s of working with each? Any tips for the beginner just getting started? I am dying to get started on a project but am finding myself in a bit of analysis paralysis trying to decide what to attempt first….

...are all Monster Mud. I love the quality of the latex paint and it's strength. Though it is heavy. I bought mistints, so it was pretty cheap. ;) Hamish has been living outside for years and is only improved by the weather. :) This year I will be trying more with paper mache.

That is some very nice work otherworldly, thanks for posting.

I don't know about cheap, but I am starting to get into all three of them. Each one has it own effect. And all three of them I like except MM. I even combined paper mache with latex. Now it looks a little different now than this picture because I wanted to mess with it, but just because it is cheap doesn't mean you have to end up with a cheap effect.
