    Hopefully we can find why you aren't getting a lot of sand residue using Drylok. Before use it's thoroughly stirred to get the silica distributed top to bottom in the can. I do not thin it all. It is applied with a 1 1/2 angled brush and I make sure that the final brush strokes are always downward so you start to see the grain of the sand start to develop. The first coat will give you an essence of the stone-look but it's imperative that two coats are applied. The second coat's silica starts...

    I will try to get that fixed ASAP for you. Another idea is to pm me your email address and I'll zip that off to you.

    Glad you like the Lazy Susan idea. On the head one I had installed a long, thick screw in the center of it and her head is on it like a spike. Later on I needed a base for a horse's head that had PVC for a skeleton and so that's why you also see the two PVC bases. Those easily screw on or off. For the full sized one there is a metal pipe threaded base and the dummy has a metal pipe as a spine. So, she just threads on or off. Hopefully you see that in this picture of the two bases in storage:

    Well, I dunno if Fright Props would not admit they had a problem. I find they are really helpful in trouble-shooting. Couple of years ago I had a faulty regulator - they sent me another one and that one was faulty. After we talked they realized they had gotten a whole batch of faulty regulators and got me a working one from a different batch quickly. They were great through that whole situation.

    Great idea for a thread - that umbrella frame stand is brilliant and the PVC painting one as well. Here's my two: There is a Lazy Susan on that head stand which allows me to turn the head as needed. You can also make them bigger to hold an entire prop dummy:

    Thank you for the compliment on my zombie butler, but judging by the pictures of your haunt mine pales in comparison.
  7. I have two masks for his face one is the silver weapon mask and the other is his actual mask. I am having a friend of mine make latex dreads and I am going to attach it all somehow on his face! I am freaking out though because I waited to long to do the tiny details and Halloween is approaching fast! Thanks for your comments I appreciate it

    Thanks so much for the vote of confidence in my ability to finish things. I have a huge problem starting things and never actually finishing them on time! For an update, I did harden the helmet and make a few more pieces of armor, but the helmet is not fitting my head anymore! I kind of scraped the idea, and started building props again. I still want to finish the suit, but realistically, I know it won't make it for this Halloween. But check back from time to time. I should get back to it eventually.

    Yes I did get it worked out, I asked Otaku about the problem, it turns out the wire for cutting the foam wasn't creating a load, so Otaku recomeneded adding a wire wound resistor(sand-bar) in before the wire to create a load, turns out this was just what I needed. He said without a load the wire just created a dead short so the switching supply's safety cut in and shut down the power supply.
