Hi guys,

I have an older bottle of Mig Productions Europe Wet Mud P 502 that has hardened.
Does anyone had any ideas how to soften this up so that I can use it on an dozer tank ?

TIA !

Although this is an excellent product, forget it. It is an enamel, and once dried out cannot be restored. Buy a new bottle.

Man, talk about a blast from the past- Totally forgot this product even existed.

The bad news: It's an acrylic paste, and once it's hardened, it cannot be reactivated. Sorry, but you are going to have to discard it.

The good news: There are much better products on the market with more realistic and random textures from big-name manufacturers

Hi guys,

I thought so, but i still have Mig acrylic resin, mixed it with some plaster and dark pigments.
It works okay for me !

Thanks for your replies !

If you go to an artist's supply store you will usually find a selection of acrylic paste, both in matte and gloss, and in different consistencies. Since it is acrylic and water soluble, it can be colored with any acrylic based paint. Scoop out a small amount for use and mix whatever color is needed. Thin consistency gloss paste can also be used for making water effects.
