    That's awesome. Looks great
     
  10. Master no, Mad scientist perhaps! when it comes to lichen and such a simple breakdown of shape and texture i.e. binders and fillers. In plain terms mix a ton of different crap with different things to bind it together and see what you like best. With lichen texture and cluster arrangement is most important. color is last and easiest. Saved those excellent reference pics if thats alright thanks!
     
  11. By the way idbatman, that looks like a stunning mount. Would love to see the whole thing!
