  1. Static: Toe Pincher Coffin from Pallets DIY

    Halloween Props
    After seeing some really cool toe pinchers made from pallets, I decided to give it a shot. I was able to score about half a dozen pallets from work which I put in the back yard to help age for about six months, some of them were already pretty weathered. The first order of business to get...
  2. Lighting: LED String WARNING!!!!

    Halloween Props
    Ask and ye shall receive ... sometimes. Here's a close-up shot of an LED that had damage. This is what they all typically look like damage wise. Here's a section of the strand that is even further evidence; you might not be able to tell from the photo, but this is one continuous strand...
  3. Lighting: LED String WARNING!!!!

    Halloween Props
    I'll see what I can do about closer pictures, but I'm using my phone camera, so not sure about how good they will turn out. However, after looking at the damage much closer in the daylight, I agree with you. The most obvious clue is that the damage is never at the LED, but ALWAYS on the solder...
  4. Other: Opinion needed: Old Radio

    Halloween Props
    If you were going to use it as a prop, then I wouldn't want to refinish it. You have the skeleton which suggests to much age. You have the old school songs that suggests age. Doesn't seem to me that a old-as-new radio blends in. If anything, use it in old shape until after HW, then restore it...
  5. Static: Oil Clay Sculpture

    Halloween Props
    So I was playing around with some clay and ended up sculpting an entire head on a blucky skull that I had covered in paper mache. I like it so much that I want to keep it. So I need some advice from the group. How do I make it permanent? I was considering painting several coats of drylock since...

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    LED Warning I've posted a warning about using LED lights for the "hot coals" effect. I never thought that they could be a fire hazard! Check out my post before you go ahead with this type of prop: You've been WARNED! Also, I've posted a request for how to modify the LED strings I found at...
  11. LED String - Slow Flicker Mod

    After my botched hot coals prop where the cheap LED strands could have started a FIRE, I'm wanting to find a solution. The cheap LED strands that I first attempted to use are not only a potential fire hazard, but they also aren't waterproof or even moisture resistance. So, I started looking...

    Hey guys, BE CAREFUL with what type of LEDs you use. I used to think that it wouldn't matter myself since they don't get hot. I was wrong!! Check out my post with pictures of cheap LEDs and the risk it could pose: Warning

    If the grammar is a concern, then you could do a traditional RIP with the NOT scrawled/painted in as if someone added it after the fact in regards to the haunting.
