    I love your creations and you are way ahead of where I was when I first started. What's neat about tombstone building is that every year the bar get raised higher and then they show how it done. That, in turn helps others build on the knowledge learned. Haunters are the most amazing people.

    Terra replied to a thread Static: Advice: Sealer for painted foam? in Halloween Props
    Many times I use acrylic paint (artists' paints) for details after it was base coated with Drylok. Because you used exterior latex paint that would give it the same protection so you are good there. I've never had problem with the details paint effects washing away so you shouldn't be concerned. You are good to go :)

    Terra replied to a thread Static: Drylock Substitute for Stones? in Halloween Props
    Not sure but if you strike out with Home Depot/Lowe's perhaps try Ace Hardware. They always seem to surprise me that they carry stuff I don't usually see at other places. I like the water-proofing characteristics of Drylok because I'm usually adding in details of things that were dipped in monster mud so I need it to be waterproofed. The pink foam itself doesn't need to be waterproofed. It's that way on it's own. I love Drylok not only for the water-proofing though. That grit does give it...

    I use tongue and groove method. I use 2x3 to frame and plywood sheathing cut at 4' x 7'. The longest straight stretch I have is 3 panels (12 feet) and each panel is secured not just to each other but to the wall of my garage via additional 2x3's on top. I would highly recommend building a JIG if you plan to make dozens of wall panels. I also recommend you have a second person with you as these panels get heavy. The hardest part was trying to fit them together perfectly. There is no...

    Hee! Hate to be so basic about likes and dislikes but being very honest here: I would love anything homemade that shows off my reapee's love/art of making props/crafts. I guess the only dislike is gore.

    You could try what I did with the Demon Horse. You dip cheesecloth into the Drylok. It helps reinforce the Drylok like if you were fiberglassing. I named it 'Cheeseclothing'. Here's the vid (Fast forward to time stamp 3:12):

    I'll never forget when I stumbled upon this place. I was confused by my newfound intense passion for Halloween and didn't know where to share it. Then I found HalloweenForum and fell in love with everyone. Thanks Larry!

    It's not a bug - it's a feature! This is a great idea and gave me an idea to use crumbled monster mud as an additional way to add age. Your new improved stone is terrific.

    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.

  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
