    I've been reading a couple witch books in the past few days. I finished The Phyisick Book of Deliverance Dane and am now reading A Discovery of Witches but should be done in a couple of days. Any others that are good but not to "cheeky"? Historically based stuff is more my speed, rather than fantasy/romance that some witch stories might get into. I like imagination, but it needs to be grounded a little. Know what I mean?

    Seems like the Secret Reaper thing has gotten so big that I may need it's own forum.

    I'm at the end of my harvest here so I'm just letting the final pumpkins orange up. Thanks for the advice though. I'll keep it in mind next season.

    Terra replied to a thread Other: Tombstone paint question in Halloween Props
    Latex enamel has ingredients in it to make the paint level out more and not leave as many brush strokes plus they are usually gloss/semi gloss. That's not important for making stones so just stick with the cheap exterior flat latex paint.

    I read the book and it was great. The end kind of faded IMO, but up until he came home it was awesome. He was a great man.

    We've also been cooking tomato sauce like crazy. Currently near 5 gallons. :eek: I'm about out of freezer space.

    My count is currently at 14. Two of them cooked down and in the freezer for pumpkin soup (et. all) already as they were a bit soft. I'll cook down any others that show signs of softness. I still have 5 on the vines, though the leaves on my remaining vines are beginning to turn white with mildew. I'm very satisfied. Don't know if I'll do it again next year as the three plants I had took over my flower beds, bushes, and small trees, but it was a great time.

    That does look like a sea sponge to give that dappled effect. Yes, you can tint Drylok darker. Either just use some black artist's paint or bring it back to the paint counter and ask them to do it.

    Ah, now I see how those are done. Super impressive and that artistry of the dragon head is amazing as well. Hope you don't mind but I embedded the video for you. You use the filmstrip button in the posting box.

    What an awesome thread and perfect timing. Just had gone through my parents pictures last week and found a picture of a tiny Terra: My mom made this costume. The broom is sewn on the robe and just had to pretend to hold it ;)

    Terra replied to a thread Static: Help with headstones? in Halloween Props
    I use the PL300 foam board adhesive for the PVC channels but Glidden Gripper (both sides) for the flat surface of the foam board itself. You see - if there is air then the foam board adhesive would work (great for the PVC channels) but when I used to carve into the flatter sides of the board I would discover that it never dried and gunked up my carving tools. That's why I switched the Glidden Gripper for that area. I just tried sanding the two sides of the board before gluing with Glidden...

    Reapee - your tombstone build scared the hell out of me today. Tried a completely new technique and needed a damn drink afterwards to calm the nerves but thinking it's gonna be great. You are worth it :)

    This whole thing was a surprise for me but also I must stress that I'm okay with it. It got to be quite the conversation over at Facebook so I crafted this reponse which encapsulates how I'm feeling about the whole thing: https://www.facebook.com/terra.lair/posts/787169324656079 My view of Grandin Road and my version of Beloved: I am not upset but probably not for the reason most would think.

    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...
