    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.

    Hello Attain,
    I saw the Southeastern PA home haunters group you are a member of and it says it's for haunters in the TriState area. I'm in Northern NJ and was wondering if I'm too far from your geographical area? Thanks.

  9. That does sound like a lot. How do you plan to do the chair? I always wanted to have one of those. I will talk to the wifey about the craft show. I'm sure she would be interested in helping out.

    I think I am going a little mish mosh this year. I am moving the graveyard to the backyard I hope!
    my plan is to have the kids come in out front past a toxic spill then past 3 witches and the cauldron. Then proceed to the backyard past the 9' scarecrow to the rocking rocking chair with no one in it then finally the graveyard then dumped into the neighbors yard! I hope I can pull it off.
    If the wife wants we are having a craft fair at a fire house on Oct.24 and I am still in need of people to sell things.
