    SavageEye replied to a thread Atmosphere Effects: Clear rods for Floating Candles in Graveyard? in Halloween Props
    For my floating candelabras, I use a horizontal fishing line and then tie vertical pieces off of the horizontal piece that tie to the candles. They sway and twist in a slight breeze and you can't see the fishing line unless you are right up on top of it.

    Excellent work! I love what you did with the "metal" plaque. I agree, wooden tombstones need more representation!

    If the Atmosfear projector is only 150 lumens then I think it would only work well in total darkness. I sent them an email to clarify if it Lux or Lumens. I will post if they answer. I have the first Ghostly apparition dvd and love it. I am looking forward to second one.

    It shows that the brightness is 150 lux. How does a lux translate into lumens?

    Instead of black, try dry brushing on shades of orange and yellow. That would probably look better on a white surface like this. You could also use a method called tea staining, as opposed to painting. Even heavily diluted wood stain could work for distressing. I'd also suggest using either real or fake moss in certain places to enhance the decay. This is beautiful, though. It'll really be over the top once it's aged properly. Amazing job!

    Thanks for the measurements. I too will probably go with the "T's" just because it looks more clean. What software should I use to program my lights? I am going to have some free time on hand this next week and wanted to start getting familiar with software. Like I said before, I plan on using Pi with my setup and will program using a PC. What are your thoughts?

    So, running the "T" seems like a better method. I agree with you though. Running 18ga would be better than 22ga.

    Thanks Setarcos. I assume that the LED driver you are using will not be needed with the use of RobG's board. Correct? Thanks for the advice on the pigtails and "T". The cables at Holidaycoro (18 gauge) seem pretty cheap compared to the shipping costs that Ray charges from China. Why is RobG using a wafer connector coming out of the housing and a single pigtail with the water proof connector?

    Setarcos, thank you! I am definitely in for a little soldering! I reserved 10 of RobG's boards and can't wait to get them. Why has no one done a group buy on the enclosures? That and the LED's will be my next purchase. I have had some exchange with Sporadic on the DIYChristmas forum and he has me looking at this setup: Raspberry PI --> E6804 --> Lights (I plan on using two 3 pin conductor pigtails off of each unit) It sounds like this will give me a base that I can build upon and...

    Thanks dpeterson. Great point. Three years in a row I ended up having to replace strings of LED christmas lights for that exact reason. The LED strings that the box stores sell are crap for that exact reason. I ended up covering all of the contact points (except the LED bulb) with hot glue. I have found that if you get the hot glue hot enough, it will flow like epoxy and cover everything with a nice even coat.

    J-Man, you're a wealth of knowledge. Thanks for the help. I'm trying to envision exactly where this goes. I am interested because I am now researching how to build 10W RGB Floods and I think that I am going to need something like this in each unit. The challenge is that I want them all to be 12V and daisy chain from one unit to the next (perhaps via Cat5 wire). Meaning, I want to power 4-6 of these off of one power source. This unit appears that it has to have 110VAC coming in to each...

    J-Man - Thanks for your advice. I purchased the 1W Star LED's from Lighthouse LED. Much brighter and no blotchy color! I'm not sure I understand how to incorporate or how to use an LED Driver. Do they take the place of the resistor? Do you need one for each light fixture? Does this take the place of the 12VDC Wall Wart? Here is an LED Driver that I found on eBay: Is this what I need?

    Hey gang, It's been a minute since I've been on the board, but I wanted to let you all know about a new website I started called hauntmaps.com. The website is something that I've wanted to do for a long time, since I'm always looking for new haunts to visit every year, but a lot of the sites that list haunts aren't really tended to and I'd end up at someone's house who hasn't decorated in 5 years. It's free to everyone and has listings for all types of haunts. Yard haunts,...

    If you notice in this photo, she's suspended by very thin string-- probably fishing wire, tied to her arm and leg? I would personally put a hook in her underside and hang her that way.

    Need help... Last year I did a "popping ghosts" prop. I had 3 ghosts positioned throughout the yard. I used 2 way valves and the air would push the ghosts up a post and come back down again. My compressor line went to a 3-way manifold and then three separate lines to the solenoids. The solenoids were approximately 5', 15' and 25' from the manifold. The problem was that I could not get a lot of air to come out of the 25' line. It seems to me that if the line is pressurized, I should...

    I'm in love with your raven. So much so I'm going to attempt to build one for myself. Personally I think I'm crazy to even imagine that i can build this this. I'm just waiting for the rest of my parts to get started. I've been studying your photos trying to wrap my head around it all. I know this will be my most challenging build ever, but I do love a challenge! Thanks for the inspiration and your pics that will get me started in the right direction!
