    WOW! I've thought about doing something like that, but have nowhere to store the panels. It will be a small miracle if the door I made survives storage to make another appearance this year. lol How did you attach the panels? I just used 3M fastener tabs to secure the door panel, then peeled them off the door after Halloween. I wouldn't even know where to begin securing something on that scale! Here is the door panel Grave Grabbers referred to. It was a quick, last minute build to hide our...

    It's just blue foam board, which is super light, but did cause our door to creak, which was fine with me lol. I attached it with 3M fastener (AKA super velcro) and just peeled the tabs off the door after Halloween. Got lucky and didn't damage the paint lol. Here are the details on that project... https://www.facebook.com/pg/yardhaunt/photos/?tab=album&album_id=323095241379073

    The thought has occurred to me that this could also be used as a means of just hiding the motor and using a much longer string having the spider moving somewhere else. Hmmmmmm...

    Here's the deal. I always try to credit whoever I got the idea from. I'm not gonna backtrack and fact check every damn video I see to make sure I credit the original maker. I've had several of my ideas copied over and over without ever having credit given and never mentioned it because I'm not in it for recognition. I'm here to share ideas and enjoy making cool stuff. If you want to credit me for an idea, awesome, if not, also fine. There are much better ways to go about noting who created the...

    A friend sent me the link, too, but she also sent a thread with a recipe for making somewhat less expensive refractory brick. It's 2 parts fireclay to 1 part each of perlite, clean sand, ash, and portland cement. I have not tried it -- no first hand experience at this point-- but the person who recommended it appears to have some significant experience making forges and such. My plan is to try a few once it gets nice enough to take the mess outside. I intend to let the skull-bricks dry,...

    Kindy's has always been sold out every time I checked there. You buying them all? I try and pick up deer at yard sales for a few bucks, then yank the motors and toss the rest. Microwave turntables use the same type of motor, but it's only the motor itself without the plastic housing to shelter it from the elements. They are great if you need a smaller motor to fit in a tight place.

    Nightfisher, I love this prop! This is exactly what I've been looking for. The added light is key, especially with that led controller. I didn't know those controllers existed - I've got to get one! Do you have a recommended supplier for deer motors? Thanks for sharing this tutorial. Really cool prop!

    If you lived near me I would be all over this to help you build an alien nest corridor. Huge fan of the xenomorphs!

    Nightfisher replied to a thread Atmosphere Effects: Drawing a blank.. Help.. in Halloween Props
    Oh hell, then make it a section of alien nest! Just put a bunch of pipes and boxes on the walls, paint them a dirty metallic color, then corpse over everything with black plastic tablecloths melted with a heat gun. Throw in a couple of sparking panel boxes, maybe a yellow rotating warning light on the ceiling. You could even build up some weird biomechanical structures with your corpsing. Make it look like a ventilation shaft that is being used as the entrance to the hive/nest. Lots of work,...

    Faces would be awesome, as would a cave or crevasse. Or add a laser vortex even. You didn't mention your overall theme or where this hall leads to. Would be helpful information. I do like the high wind idea, I don't think I've ever heard of someone doing that.

    Wooohooo--- I was reaped, too! Mail carrier left it in the shed so it wouldn't get snowed on, and DH brought it in last night. My reaper did a fantastic job and I love it all. I'll try to get a quick shot soon (we're heading out shortly) and then give it all the photo shoot it deserves when we get back! Thank you very much, Esteemed Reaper!

    My apologies to my victim-- No good excuses; I just overbooked my time and didn't get any crafting done. I did have some things shipped direct (3 pkgs), and they'll more than make the reaper minimum BUT-- there is still a box of stuff I will add to the mix when I get DH's help to dig it all out!

    I love your work and I'm looking forward to seeing your new witch head corporealized! That's a beauty! (I enjoy your dry humor, too. The vulture post...yeah!)

    Stopped by to say I love the rotted pumpkin head candy holder you're making - the icky rubber "throat" will be great - very unsettling to feel when the kids put their hands in! Also the spindly legs on your spider really ups the arachnophobia creep-out factor. Very cool.

    Hello again. Another question. LOL Sorry!
    I was in Michaels today, and I couldn't find anyone to help me... I couldn't locate the Mold Builder Liquid Latex.. Could you so kindly point me towards what area/aisle I should be looking in?
    Thanks.
