    If you want rust on the cheap, go to the auto parts store where they turn brake rotors and drums ask them for some metal shavings. Sprinkle them on the parts and spray with water. They will rust pretty quickly and will pretty much stain anything.

    jbaum replied to a thread Other: Prop protection in Halloween Props
    I make a lean to and cover it with a outdoor billboard signs. You know the billboard signs are large banners except the electronic ones. They are black on the inside and ads on the outside. A neighbor works for a sign company and gives me a few each year. My haunt is a walk through yard and I create "rooms" for each display. They are separated with landscaping fabric and only open on one side. If you want a open display then these won't work but all my displays and props are dry. If you...

    I too liked the trees the best. The Cameos were nice and the dogs interesting but.... I looked at all the props on-line but when I was in the store I wasn't impressed. I had hopes for the shooting zombie prop. Probably the next best was the crawling swamp zombie. Of course a lot of the props weren't working properly.

    Poly would work but it sometimes will cause the material to look yellowish, the same with varnish. I don't seal mine because I use outdoor paint and even when I use interior paint the amount of time the panels are outside doesn't affect them. It would help to know what you are trying to protect that would wash away. You could try Never Wet as they have a clear. If I remember correctly it also may make it cloudy.

    If you want to try and save the pumpkin try painting it with Metalcast Spray paint MC205. It's a transparent orange color that doesn't look too bad on a blow mold. I painted one pumpkin with it. I got mine at the auto parts store. If they don't have it they should be able to order a can for you.

    "I just saw that you live in FWB so we have another haunter in the area. I live over by the golf course and would like to visit your haunt sometime. I just started setting everything for the year. So much to do and so little time. "

    Hey, that would be great! I'm actually in Crestview but FWB is just much more recognizable for most. Looks like we'll have a chilly Halloween this year if the forecasts are right. :O)
