I just found a great site with all sorts of painting techniques. It's the Hirst Arts Fantasy Architecture site and is meant for miniature war-gaming but many of the techniques could be scaled up for home haunting. The various tips for painting castle or stone walls could be applied to dungeon wall sections, bottomless pit props, tombstones & crypts, etc. The site covers painting, dry-brushing, colour washes & highlights. Also, if you get into some of the individual projects they cover simulating wood and other textures. There is even a section on building a Gothic Graveyard which would be perfect for anyone who likes the Spookytown or Halloween Village set-ups.

Here are the links...
