    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.

    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

    Hello so glad you stopped by my page. I just got back from Home Depot and was ready to pull my hair out! I'm trying to figure out what pneumatic components I need to hook up a new airbrush. That stuff is CONFUSING! But I finally figured it out. Now I'm enjoying a nice fruity adult beverage....
