    Hopefully we can find why you aren't getting a lot of sand residue using Drylok. Before use it's thoroughly stirred to get the silica distributed top to bottom in the can. I do not thin it all. It is applied with a 1 1/2 angled brush and I make sure that the final brush strokes are always downward so you start to see the grain of the sand start to develop. The first coat will give you an essence of the stone-look but it's imperative that two coats are applied. The second coat's silica starts...

    I will try to get that fixed ASAP for you. Another idea is to pm me your email address and I'll zip that off to you.

    I don't even think that Grant coming back would bring me back to the show. I loved the show in the beginning because they helped people understand that most things people experience in their homes are not paranormal. When they stopped doing people's homes to help them and just kept doing "already known haunted places" that really made me mistrust them. Everything had to be really clear and obvious in their early seasons. Later - every bump or squeak was a "ghost"! I know you all love them but...

    I don't see why anyone has to bash this. It doesn't hurt you, does it? Hardly anyone even reads the wrappers before opening and eating the candy, let alone take time to read the scriptures on the back if they don't want to. What if this was rainbow wrapper with "=" sign on it? Would you still say the same thing? If you hate those that hate or do not understand what you like, are you not the same? Be a haunter :) not a hater.

    Glad you like the Lazy Susan idea. On the head one I had installed a long, thick screw in the center of it and her head is on it like a spike. Later on I needed a base for a horse's head that had PVC for a skeleton and so that's why you also see the two PVC bases. Those easily screw on or off. For the full sized one there is a metal pipe threaded base and the dummy has a metal pipe as a spine. So, she just threads on or off. Hopefully you see that in this picture of the two bases in storage:

    Well, I dunno if Fright Props would not admit they had a problem. I find they are really helpful in trouble-shooting. Couple of years ago I had a faulty regulator - they sent me another one and that one was faulty. After we talked they realized they had gotten a whole batch of faulty regulators and got me a working one from a different batch quickly. They were great through that whole situation.

    Great idea for a thread - that umbrella frame stand is brilliant and the PVC painting one as well. Here's my two: There is a Lazy Susan on that head stand which allows me to turn the head as needed. You can also make them bigger to hold an entire prop dummy:

    Hello and welcome :) I was thinking that if you place your collection under a cabinet than you could get an under-cabinet fluorescent light fixture and replace the bulb with a fluorescent one. In addition - or alternately you could repaint some key parts of the collection with fluorescent paint. I love WildFire and they sell little kits of it: RSHD4www.blacklight.com/items/WF170005KT

    I have always opted for really easy costumes Luka a vampire or red riding hood - this year I decided to go all out and put together a costume that takes 40 minutes and 2 people to get on. Lol! I might just have to go back to red riding hood.
