There's a link to the columns on this page. http://www.hauntproject.com/projdetail.asp?category=Pillars
The hands are great stuff foam over a wire frame. I welded a metal frame for the mausoleum and put foam board on it. I finished it the same way I did the columns with monster mud. I describe the painting technique in the link. Thanks, I'm glad you liked it.
Thanks! For the spiders I just used brick clips to hang them. Brick clips snap into the spaces between the bricks and have a hook on them. They don't hold too much weight but for the spiders they were perfect. I hung them from the elastic cord that the spiders come with - simple. Hope that helps.
Thank you for the compliment on my gravedigger! He was my first attempt at paper mache and there were several times I felt like throwing him arcoss the room!!! lol But, I'm pretty happy with how he turned out.. Don't forget to post pics of the projects you do!!
