    Liquid nails is a brand name. Be careful with products designed for wood because some of those will eat foam. I find the foamboard glue works well but I would not recommend it as a filler.

    I am not sure this is a habit. But I find myself too often going for the really big project. I could probably finish several smaller ideas but instead I pick the one that will take 10 times as long to finish.

    I just used the lid. The whole project took about an hour of my time. Most of the actual time was just waiting for things to dry. The sand moss technique is really easy.

    Here are some tombstones made out of $1 foam coolers. I cut the back out of them so they can used to hide spot lights.

    I placed mine on either side of the house about 2 ft off the ground.

    cmerli replied to a thread Static: Proper Windows for the Mortuary in Halloween Props
    The stained glass is window privacy film. I simply taped it to the back. I bought a sheet for $15 and it did 6 windows. This is not the exact same one but I did get it at Walmart. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Artscape-Magnolia-Decorative-Window-Film/17216166

    The windows are foam. The columns are pool noodles. I will certainly post picture once I get the set up done in October. There are 5 windows in the front of the house including two 2nd story windows. While I tested them all for fit I did not get out the ladder to place all of them in position.

    I have a brick house and the theme of the haunt is that it is an old mortuary so I made some stained glass windows for the front of the house.

    cmerli replied to a thread Your Haunt Name? in General Halloween
    I picked it because we lived on Waters Edge but this sounded a bit better. The back story is that it is an old mortuary that is now being used by a scientist as a cover for the experiments to try to revive his wife. The residents of the cemetery are not amused.

    cmerli replied to a thread Atmosphere Effects: Found this light at biglots today---pretty cool in Halloween Props
    I would love to create this effect with a fluorescent bulb. Does anyone have any ideas on that. I am helping with a charity haunt and I want to have a modern looking lab where an experiment has gone terribly wrong. I thought a flickering (and buzzing) light would fit perfectly.
