    AMK, Just the background was black. The clown was red, green, yellow and blue. I will have research daler-rowney to see where I can get them. I saw Stuart Smith painting and he was painting over black. I originally had the foam painted white but didn't want to paint a lot of black. I guess that wasn't the best way to go. Does anybody know if dayglo sells smaller quantity of paint other than the gallon size.

    I'm going to try Wildfire paint this year. I tried some paint from Michaels and Hobby Lobby and wasn't impressed with the results. I airbrushed a clown over black background and it was dull. I saw a 3D painting by Stuart Smith painted on a black background and it was awesome. He uses Dayglo but they only sell it in the gallon size. I need smaller samples to start with. I think they are about the same quality.

    I tend to use things till they fall apart and can't be repaired. I move things around every year and add every year.

    I'm not sure what you could use the switch for in prop building or triggering. The POE voltage is 48V running on pins 7/8. Too much voltage and too little power to run motors. Standard POE is up to 15 watts, POE+ 30 watts and UPOE is 60 watts. To turn POE on or off is a command line in the switch. Interesting thought. Like most networking stuff it's either on or off. It doesn't switch to on/off like we would like. Good luck

    If you're looking for a roof may I suggest a billboard sign. They are printed on one side and black on the other. My neighbor works for a sign company and they get rid of them when the contract is over.

    I haven't had much luck with painting pool noodles. I have used them on tombstones and yes the paint flaked off. This year I removed it from the tombstones. Even with them painted they seemed to deteriorate

    Let me know how you splice the connector to it. I also picked up a couple of them yesterday. I was able to get it to trigger Death Row just fine. For my lab it works with the live wires. I can't get it to trigger Evil Scientist or Frankenstein even when I splice the MIT with a 1/8" plug. I ended up using a try me button for Frankenstein but no luck on Evil Scientist. Spirit Halloween employees were no help. When I asked if they sold the try me buttons laying around one asked what they...

    You're correct , if you build it they will come. When I started 8 years ago decorating there was a couple hundred TOTs. This year we had 2000+ come through the yard. 13 cases of candy and several large bags.

    "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)
