Jintosh - So did you put dirt on the idol and then spritz with water or did you make some dirty water and then spritz it with it?

Ah. It's in the technique. I actually searched my bathroom quickly and found a spray bottle with "Febreze Air - with GAIN".

I set my idol outside and sprayed a heavy coat of Febreze on the surface, and then while it was still wet, I threw the dirt on it. The dirt stuck to the wet Febreze. I noticed that more stuck than I wanted, so I got an air duster can (canned air) and sprayed off the larger clumps of dirt, which left a thin layer of dirt, as if it had accumulated over time. The dirt is especially visible in the bright light, and at that angle of camera shot. It is actually not as visible under normal conditions. It looks muted, but not decades worth of dirty, accept under those exact conditions. The lighting and angle and close up shot, all combine to get that particular look. They thought that all out in advance, and I simply tried to duplicate what they did.

I was thinking of making my own Fertility Idol pedestal. I remember back in the day, we used to use a pink craft foam as a base and add resin or clay to start sculpting details. I thought it was a 3M product, but the closest thing I can find is this Owens Corning foam insulation board. Has anyone used it before? I think it is the right product, but my memory is foggy.

You are better to get this type of sculpting foam. It is like carving wood, just a lot easier. Then cost it with a gesso or bondo for texture before paint.

Okay thanks for the head's up, I'll try and see if any local shops have that.
Check out FoamShop online. Looks like they have larger solid blocks but are currently out of stock. It would make more sense to me to start with a larger block instead of stacking them.

Got tired of all my stuff in boxes, so I went ahead and put everything I could find in the cabinet. This is all reasonably preliminary.
