    Please come back and post your progress. Would love to follow along!

    Do you have an problems with rain or moisture. Living is Washington, I'm always trying to figure out how well my props will hold up. Thank you for the information. I may attempt making a hat, but the weather always has me hesitant.

    I wanted to ask you (if you don't mind sharing your secrets) the hat on your witch--- simply put "how did you make it?" I saw one picture and it look like there was tape, but is there chicken wire/ cardboard? I'd love to know your technique.

    That is a brilliant tip. Thank you! I've got a stash of metal shirt hangers from the dry cleaners I have been snipping apart and using. They certainly won't work if I do a bigger project. Thank you again.

    Yup. That was when Fred had to update my tetanus shot information. LOL Well I am not ready for the big league... I was not sculpting my own, but was modifying a hanging Target skelly. I gave him an inner pvc skeleton, but wanted to put a lantern in one hand and have the other index finger 'pointing' the way. I did finally succeed. I somewhat replicated the wiring from your photo inside the skelly hand using cut off wire clothes hangers. Yes. That did sting. (*&%$!) LOL Thanks for the inspiration.

    Ok... soooooo I was NOT supposed to push the wire through my index finger yesterday while shaping hands? LOL :D

    I'm stalking... I mean looking through your old posts for a picture of how you curled a hand to hold a lantern. Hmmm Your photos are good stuff.

    WOW! Your props are amazing. Thanks for sending the picture and lettine me know how easy your method is :) I'm certainly going to be working with chicken wire and cheese cloth this year! Thanks again for the advice :)

    Hey GhostTown! I'm very intrigued by your method of using cheese cloth and glue as reinforcement for paper mache props. I'd love to see pictures of some of the props that you guys have built using this method. I think that you're really onto something with that and it's making me re-think the way that I make some of mine and even revisit prop ideas that I had and couldn't figure out how to do them effeciently. :)

    So when did you become the Duke of Spook? lolololol
    With regard to our previous conversation, I think Ghost Town is a suggestion to throw into the hat. :D

    Hi GhostTown! Where did you purchase the Darklight spots you mentioned in the lighting thread? From Fright Props? I think this is exactly what I need.
