    Rania replied to a thread Static: How can I build this? in Halloween Props
    Yeah im trying to figure out how to build something like that piece as well. I think ihauntu is right though. It's foam, and then maybe coated in fiberglass? You can buy enormous blocks of foam and then carve in sections.

    Rania replied to a thread Static: Idea for a giant spider... in Halloween Props
    I made my giant spider similarly, using chicken wire, great stuff and burlap. I cut strips of the burlap, roughed the edges to make the fabric hairy. Then wrapped the burlap loosely, sprayed great stuff underneath so it would cure coming out of the burlap. Was a super rad effect. I did that technique on the legs the first year and then made a new body this year with the same concept, except i used a 2 part spray tank system. Here are some pics:

    Bob,

    Hope you are having a good new year. Are you working on any new projects yet? I’m getting ready to start a new big project. I’m going to start building wall panels. I’m fearful the project may be bigger than it may first seem, but I’ll give it a go.

    Anyway have a great 2012!

    Thanks for looking at my album. It almost feels like Halloween is not over when I get visitors like you. Your comments were greatly appreciated.

    30 TOTs is not bad. That is what I averaged for many years. Honestly I get so much fun out of building the props that as long as I get a few dozen Im happy, although I do get doubts if all the effort is worth it. The answer I always come back to is yes, because this hobby is awesome.

    A video walk though of my haunt would have been a good idea. Unfortunately she is already half torn down, maybe next year.

    I did not hit any after holiday sales. What were you able to get at Spirit? It sounds like a bunch of forum members were going after the zombie sewer tunnel displays. Id have to admit that Spirit did step it up a level with the indoor displays this year. I was impressed. Did you get any animatronics?

    Are you thinking of next year yet, or are you going to take a break for a while? Ive fallen behind on some of my home chores, plus the wife has a project or two for me, but I would like to begin one of my new ideas for next year. Im going to try and make wall panels. The plastic wall covering from Spirit looks pretty good, but Id like to make something that looks like real stone. I hope I can pull it off.

    Well sorry to chat your ear off, but it is always nice to hear from forum members.

    So how did the big day turn out for you? Did you have lots of visitors? The display looks great.

    Like your pics. I noticed that in 2010 you used mainly green ligting. Did yo use LEDs ? In the 2011 photos it looked like you may have changed the color scheme. I have tried various colors, but really like the way your green turned out on the tombstones/graveyard. Happy Halloween !!

    Thank you for the kind comments. The lighting is a lot of work. If I had to guess I probably run upwards of 50 or 60 independent LED lights.

    Looks like you have also been working hard this year. Are you on schedule?

    Great work! Your pics are very creepy! Great collection you have!
  10. Thanks! I followed the Skull and Bone technique. Here's the link.

    Only thing I did different was use a dark walnut varnish rather then the black spray paint suggested. I also sanded
    down the bucky and put a coat of the varnish on before the
    nylon and latex application. I then waited about a half hour
    and wiped it off leaving only the cracks and sockets dark and a hint of color on the bone
