    Thanks all. Love that workshop too. When we told my friends that I was making one of the bedrooms a workshop they were like, "Whaaaa?" Hey, Reapee - did a lot of productive work on your stone so far. Here's a hint for you - your theme for the stone is something I never would have come up with on my own without your 'likes' list ;) Exotic...

    My guess is it's in remembrance of September 11th?

    The pipe that Fright Prop uses is actually a metal pipe like the kind you get at Home Depot.

    Terra replied to a thread Pneumatic: Air Whip Help ... in Halloween Props
    It's 4 feet long and the air pressure depends on how vigorous you want them to wiggle. I had mine dialed pretty low so they didn't beat you to death and didn't over-tax my air compressor because I had 4-6 other props running off my 20 gal compressor (poor thing). I can't exactly remember the psi but it was probably around 30-60. Looking at Fright Props looks like they may have gone to softer tubing but I'd even go further and try surgical rubber tubing perhaps:...

    Terra replied to a thread Pneumatic: Air Whip Help ... in Halloween Props
    Air whips are notorious air hogs so it's important to have just as many air whips in the unit that you need. How many or what use are you thinking for it? Here's the one I bought from Fright Props years ago: If it is going to hit the legs of the ToTs think of the little ballerinas that go through and use soft rubber whips instead of these plastic ones.

    Terra replied to a thread Lighting: Best lighting color for cemetery in Halloween Props
    There are a total of four blue LED lights for the graveyard. A pair in each front corner. Each pair is nestled in a twin foam stone light holder. I got them all at Minion's Web. Here is a link of the blue lights: http://www.minionsweb.com/osStore/50-led-spot-bulb-blue-p-282.html Here's the housings: http://www.minionsweb.com/osStore/light-rock-double-painted-p-1407.html You can somewhat see one of the lighting units that looks like a casual stone next to the fence pictured here. What's nice...

    I couldn't guess neither of them but then when I saw the answer - just smacked my head. Brilliant tombstones (tea-staining looks awesome) and so glad that the tuts helped you out. Isn't tombstone making fun?

    Terra replied to a thread Lighting: Black light help in Halloween Props
    Through research I learned that T8 fluorescent bulbs are better than the T12's for two reasons. T8 reactive chemicals are coated on the inside of the bulb and since the T8 bulbs are thinner - you get more black light illumination (more powerful). The other reason is T8 lights are made for colder applications. Something to do about the starters in them. Since I was in cold Kansas - that was a consideration. The down side.... they are more expensive and a little harder to find the bulbs. But this...

    JDub - what an excellent point about overlighting it! So true - don't want your Halloween display to look like a cheerful - overlit Christmas display.
