    He neglects to mention that he started the new build with me...Ha, Ha...he is a slave driver, I am the same....it is a "kill/kill" dynamic. Bobzilla is super talented and if you EVER get involved with a build with him...do whatever he says...he is GENIUS!!!:D:D And all my BEST ideas come from bouncing ideas back and forth with him....This man should work for Disney...just saying....:)

    :)This is a good thread, I like to hear how other people refinish props. You can learn a lot. Sometimes I go with a black or very dark base and then layer lighter colors in succession over the black. Seems you get a lot of depth with each added coat. It's time consuming though, so it's not for everyone. (Bobzilla is a master at this technique) Like I said, I like to hear how other people paint and then see the finished product. And each time I paint a prop, I try different techniques from...

    :) Just discovered this product, which I think will come in handy on lots of projects. You can find it at ACE Hardware and Home Depot, but I don't have either store near me, so I ordered it online. I am crafting with gourds next weekend and I found this while doing some research. It makes the gourds really tough, but it's main use is for wood repair. I think I may have found my new favorite thing, which will be added to my current list of favs including, Apoxie Sculpt, E6000 and Dremels. :D

    :) Those baby bats are too cute! Makes me want one as a pet :o..but I bet they wouldn't be the best pets to have. I always feel sorry for wild animals that are taken out of the wild. I know sometimes it is a necessity, like a life or death thing. But I hate to cage something wild...it seems like a sin. I did have a bat house that I had hung on the back side of my chimney....but the bats chose to house in my neighbor's chimney instead. We would sit in the back yard and watch a small colony of...

    It was helpful. Didn't mean to sound sarcastic, so hopefully it wasn't taken that way. I do want to try some black on one of them. I think the darker hues look better than the usual white. The issue of detail is one a lot of us struggle with. I'm a detail freak, but then when I see everyone going through a haunt full tilt and realizing very few folks even bother to pay attention to it, I sometimes wonder how much I really need to fuss over details. Last year's haunt was insanely detailed and we...

    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....

    I almost used a watered down black wash on one of them but changed my mind. I plan to order a couple/few more to try some different finishes. Again, the detail is for ME, as every other person who comes to the haunt just sees a skull. I might dry brush a bit of black on one to see how it looks.

    So here is the one I stained using Minwax red oak (it's what I had on hand). I dry brushed a bit of the dark base color used on the other skulls, just to dirty it up a bit and knock down some of the sheen. It came out OK. I'm not going to fuss with it much more. It will look good in haunt lighting and like many things we sweat over, the detail is lost on the average visitor. The two side by side

    Thanks Jasper. I actually did a light tan base on one and then put some dark over it. It didn't look as good (IMO) as the dark base with lighter dry brushing. You nailed it with your description of old dry excavated look. Thanks Angel. So many ways I could have gone with these. The one I stained is finally dry (after 3 days) so I want to try and highlight it a bit and see what it looks like.

    Hhhmmm, do you know, I've never been to a trade show. (probably because none are close to me) I'll have to check out what's coming closest to me and maybe take a look at going. Do you have to have special credentials to get in?
