    jbaum replied to a thread Static: Party City large Cauldron size? in Halloween Props
    I would stay away from the oatmeal, I tried that a couple of years ago. It seems that the critters in the shed enjoy the oatmeal even with a coat of paint. Last year I textured it again with spray foam and a latex glove. Sprayed foam on the cauldron and spread it around with the glove. The foam didn't expand much and looks more like rust than the oatmeal with a little paint. The foam also sticks to the plastic better than the oatmeal and paint.

    I went to Lowes again tonight and they have the fire and ice LED spotlight. A$18.99. I didn't get a good picture of it with the item number.

    jbaum replied to a thread Pneumatic: Air Whip Help ... in Halloween Props
    Would the black plastic pipe used for drip systems work along with the drip tubing? It holds 60PSI of water and should be able to use air. It's easy to work with and fitting are cheap and available.

    If this fogger doesn't have a timer but dmx inputs, how can I connect it to my LOR to act as a timer? I haven't explored the dmx world yet but I know LOR can do some dmx. Just don't know how to do it. Also, is there away to use LOR to trigger props like a PIR? I would like to set a scene off at a predetermined time using fog, strobes and trigger Frankenstein.

    Does this have a timer? I saw the buttons on the remote but couldn't see what they are for.

    jbaum replied to a thread Static: Best places to get foam sheets in Halloween Props
    I have found 2" on commercial construction sites. Generally I ask for scrap and they let me have some. It is very hard to find it here in Florida but it can be ordered through lowes or home depot. The cost last time I checked was $50 a sheet and you had to order 6. I know expensive. You can also check farm supplies as they sell it for chicken coops. I actually found it 1" in 4x16 sheets. Now my question, what is the best way to glue two sheets together?

    jbaum replied to a thread Lighting: Black light help in Halloween Props
    I bought a led floodlight from spirt a couple of years ago and it was okay. Bought another one last year that was in a case and it was much brighter and stronger light. I used it to light up the entrance sign. I will get another this year if they are the same type.

    jbaum replied to a thread Other: PVC painting in Halloween Props
    I sprayed my 200' of fence with a paint sprayer. Made a rack outside to hold the fence and sprayed 4 sections at a time. It was a little messy but quick. Tarps kept the overspray at bay. When one side was dry I turned them around and sprayed the other side. I used regular flat black latex paint. I haven't had a problem with the paint flaking.

    "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)
