  1. Static: Paper Mache and Resin?

    Halloween Props
    Forgive me if this has been asked before. I'm planning on making an alien from the film "Devil's Gate", The skeleton will be PVC but I need to bulk up some areas with paper mache, or something. This prop needs to be waterproof to stand up to fall weather in MI. Once I get the body the way I...
  2. Static: FINALLY! figured out a lazy mold making tecnique and fiberglass is awesome!!!!

    Halloween Props
    Been trying to figure out a relatively inexpensive and easy way to make molds for about 2 years now....Every time I'd look into it, the whole multiple layer then make a mother mold technique looked time consuming (and space consuming)...Not to mention the crazy expense ie: Smooth On...etc....I...

    Halloween Props
    Hi guys, I am new here. I have been learning a ton and have caught the itch. I decided to make a giant chain chomp because I want to make a super Mario world in my front yard this year for Halloween (with a bunch of boo's and badguys). I am 80% done and I have ran into a big problem. The...

    New Article="GOOD!" She is a young woman , writing for a local tourist magazine, but guess what? She got everything RIGHT! I am Very Happy with the work that she did. (Now if the photographer could have only taken a picture of the back of my head, instead of my old, scary face! ) Plain to...
  6. Other: Fiberglass resin question

    Halloween Props
    I've been using a lot of paper mache this year, but am hopeful I can find something less messy and time consuming (but still cheap enough!). I've seen a few things suggesting fiberglass resin and have a question before I consider trying it. If you put it directly on cardboard, will it become...
  7. Fiberglass pumpkin - a long shot

    Wanted to Buy
    I am looking for these fiberglass pumpkins. I had purchased 2 about 2 years ago from a local garden center and my son broke the larger of the 2 when I was putting them away after Halloween. I have looked on ebay and various google sites with no luck. I have included a picture of what the...
  8. Static: Need Some Figure Suggestions

    Halloween Props
    As always... Halloween is either feast or famine. I was about to buy a fiberglass mannequin to replace the failed plastic one we were using for our Jeepers Creepers Creeper, and low and behold... I found a guy on Craigslist who was selling four fiberglass mannequins for $65 total! So I snagged...

    General Halloween

My cemetery gate columns and fence columns are made out of plywood. I made them five or six years ago. Halloween week in Michigan invariably results in high...
  10. Other: Fiberglass Question

    Halloween Props
    I was wanting to make a skull for my animatronic project and thought it would be good idea to make a bunch of them. Has anyone worked with the fiberglass resin and that super cheep fabric that usually gets used by the ton at weddings. The fabric usually costs about $5 for the whole roll at...
