    This is my introduction to corpsing with plastic drop cloth and a heat gun, never did it before. Took about two hours to get the type of coverage I wanted. Took two rolls of drop cloth as I doubled, tripled and quadrupled thickness in various sections, also, knotting took up a lot. You knot the...

    If you've worked with corpsing barber shop heads and have some photos, I'd love to see them. I have several heads I'd like to work on for my first time. Here are a few ideas I had found: http://bascombemania.blogspot.com/2011/09/gearing-up-for-halloween.html
  7. Static: Rotting Head

    Halloween Props
    I made a rotting head using the shop towel and latex corpsing method. Figured I should make yet another tutorial video while I was at it. I'm going to make a second, even more rotted head that will be missing the lower jaw. Both of mine will be impaled on a stick or stake, but you can make them...
  8. Static: Best process for corpsing a skeleton like this?

    Halloween Props
    I picked up a skeleton from Spririt the other day, but it is way too cute for my yard. I am looking into converting him into a groundbreaker and would like him to have a greyish corpse look to him similar to the below pictures. I've seen some posts about using plastic wrap and a heat gun to...
  9. Static: Black Shrink Wrap for Corpsing?

    Halloween Props
    Has anyone ever used black shrink wrap for corpsing? I am corpsing plastic pumpkins and every one I spray black before I paint and dry brush. This could save me a ton of work but not sure on the quality.
  10. Static: Latex Corpsing Question

    Halloween Props
    I like corpsing skeletons with masking latex and cheesecloth, then staining. But after a couple seasons, the latex seems dried out. To anyone who does this method, do you coat the latex with anything after staining to preserve/weatherproof it?

    I'm just finishing my "Evil scientist" lab and am getting ready to move on to the skeletons I'll need.

    Has anyone tried using grocery store bags in Tan and grey for corpsing? I know they may not go around the torso but was thinking the color might work good. And they are free.
  19. Prop Showcase: CORPSING - my first attempt and pretty happy with it!

    Halloween Props
    I spent some time this weekend corpsing some cheap skeletons I picked up at Home Depot ($30). This is the end result. The first one turned out a bit more charred looking so I used a thinner mix on the second one. I don't think they turned out too shabby for my first attempt!
