    I need this texture on some old t-shirt, to try how it goes. If I can make it with stenciling and some free hand. So no scratching, erasing and such.

    The texture on forehead is what I am looking for. Anybody have idea what should I look for?

    I like that grainy look. :) Probably some stencil for cracks, but I wonder how do I get that grainy look... Thanks for tips.

    Seemed like a candidate for stretched dryer sheet.

    I was able to get close to that grainy look when I tried doing penny wise.
    I used an old dryer fabric sheet. I sprayed through it and folded it up and just kept moving it and spraying through it building up layers and moving it.
    The heavier you spray the grainier it gets.

    Just do it by hand. You will have more control.

    Here in Slovenia where Dryers are are quite common they are available in two drugstores. In DM and Müller, both German retailers and in the secont largest national Supermarket (Tuš), but only in the big ones.


    By the brand name Lenor ,I guess

    I found them in DM. AndreZa is right, I should go hand route, but I also would like to have option for fast doing it when I have repeat stuff. So basically my best bet would be both routes. I spend each day practising airbrushing so I will go both routes. One for satisfying my eyes(you know, you just spray and you see efect fast lol), and other route to learn more and get better(AndreZa let show hell to husky route :D).

    Apparently they cost 10 eggs for a pack, or a whole pallet for a goat.

    Dryer sheets hold fabric softener that you put in with your clothes while dryer to help cut out static cling.
    They look like this

    You can also look into a product called remay which I always include to anyone I send a paint pal too.

    Good point, don't forget to wash them a couple times before use if you get dryer sheets
