    As if Chicago is not scary enough...... I have been into making custom props over the years with varied success. I've built a number of large props where most have sold. The largest I built was a shed sized mausoleum that sadly, did not sell. It was repurposed into several other projects so...

    I finally bit the bullet and tried my hand at making a chicken wire ghost this Halloween. I read one tutorial where the lady said she made hers in an hour and a half. Boy, I envy her. I'd say I spent 25 hours or more on mine, making all of the different body parts and then putting them all...

    Has anyone made this reaper or something similar? Is chicken wire necessary for this? Once the burlap is formed, wouldn't that be enough with the monster mud?

    I got 5 skulls from Mr. Chicken a while back and am in the process of finishing them. They have a coat of white latex primer. I want the look of old bone so gave a couple of them a base coat of dark greenish/brown, followed by a dry brushing of light tan. They came out pretty fair. Opinions?
