  1. Burlap mask question

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Hello, I see these awesome burlap masks and understand to soak the burlap and place on a head and let it dry. My main question is how do you put them on? Are they cut down the side or back to pull over the head? Maybe glue some black stretchy material inside of the cut so it can close again once...

    Hello Forum, I have been off line for some time as in 2017 the local town made us an offer we could not refuse on the homestead. Long story short we relocated to a much smaller property and 2018 was our first year in the new place. I managed to get my yard set up and the neighbors and kids...

  12. In Search of Half-Skulls

    Wanted to Buy
    Hello! Anyone know a decent source for a bunch of half skulls. You know, the sort missing their lower jaw? They always convey that sense that the skull has sat around for a while. An online source I'm fond of ordering from had some for under $5-a-pop, but ran out. Attached is a pic to give...

However, the school I'm working at is doing a Halloween storytelling event, and I'm going to be doing a...
