    It turned out fantastic and this is one that I would think would become a classic idea for any graveyard. So creative!

    The lifelike pose takes it to the next level. Awesome prop.

    The depth of the stone is coming alive now :) As for misspelling - DO NOT feel bad. Happens all the time (did it twice too). I'd suggest that's just where you do a little 'aging' ;)

    Basically what I'm saying is reserve the full-on black paint for where you want to create the illusion of very deep depth - like cracks or fissures. So, for other things (epitaph, bat, etc.) you'd use variations of gray to help give the illusion of depth but not black-hole/infinity type depth as you would find in a crack. The only reason that an epitaph would be black colored is because it was painted that way. But, that paint would still be visible only if it was a relatively new stone. I...

    You are very welcome. I'd say go the opposite direction. Use dark gray for the epitaph and repaint the cracks in the base color but don't be too careful repainting - leave some of the black peeking through. Then, follow up the crack painting a very thin brush using very black, FLAT paint. That will give a better illusion of a deep crack. Here's a video showing what I'm trying to say here at the 8:15 time stamp:

    Love the uniqueness of the tombstone so far. Great idea! I've also gotten a list of additional bits to use from this thread too. That 196 bit looks like a something that could also be used to do small carving. Just to underscore - you must use the low setting or else the bit heats up and you end up with a molten blob at the end of your bit. Also, be sure you use a bit that has the cutting surface all the way to the tip. The multi-purpose cutting tool attachment kit has two different bits...

    Thanks all - you are so sweet :) :) :) Generally you figure out what voltage and current (amps) the batteries were supplying to the device and then wire up a AC wall wart to match it. I have boxes of saved wall warts and it's not a big deal. But, if you don't - a trip to Radio Shack will supply you with one but be warned - they aren't the cheapest things. Once you have the right wall wart then you solder the wires up to the terminals (positive and negative) that are in the battery pack....

    Hey, sorry it took so long to reply. Yeah, I actually have a short video of my 1st test of the fog chiller. At the time I only had about 15 lbs. of ice in the cooler. I also had to duct tape the opening to keep all the fog from leaking out. It worked out really well on the big night with 20 lbs. of ice and lasted the whole night. I will be using it every Halloween.

    Hi Attain, Thanks for the friends request. I accepted. Looking forward to working out some prop ideas with ya. From a below post it looks like you are located at the opposite end of the city than I am but still nice to talk to someone on the forum that is "local".

    My software can be motion activated with an Insteon Motion Sensor. In the "Triggered" mode, LSM only runs the show when it is activated by another Insteon device, such as a motion sensor. If you just want to add specific audio to a prop, I've heard that the ELK-124 module (actually made for a security system) is a good way to do it. It is relay-activated, so you could hook up a motion sensor to it and it will play the recorded audio. I haven't used them yet, though.

    I have a couple of videos showing my light show on You Tube. Just search YouTube for "Haunted Drury Lane 2008"and you will find them.

    Thanks. I just free hand painted the figures on white sheets. Your ideas sound great.
  8. Do you know of Horsham?

  10. It does a little, yes. I suppose it depends on where you are really as some places get into the spirit of things. Just not where I live! miserable buggers
