  5. Static: Where to find pirate crate lettering / stencils?

    Halloween Props
    Hi all, I've tried my hand at making a pirate crate using a cardboard box and EVA foam, and have been happy with the results, thanks to the tutorials I've come across here! My dilemma is that I'm not certain how to accomplish the "lettering" or stenciling of said crate (and its forthcoming...

  7. Static: another tombstone question

    Halloween Props

  10. Static: Bit to carve tombstones with

    Halloween Props
    I've built a few tombstone and they come out pretty good but not as "clean" as the ones I see other people do. By clean I mean my letters can have some pretty rough edges, never a very "crisp" lettering. I use a dermal tool with bit and have tried a number of different bits like regular drill...
  11. Stuffing Halloween into tiny jars.

    Halloween Props
    Whenever I get stressed out and need to calm my nerves, I resort to assembling tiny little miniatures in jars. One might expect these builds to induce stress, but they have the opposite effect for me. They completely consume all my attention leaving not much thought for any other worldly...

    Halloween Props
    Finally, after 10 years, we figured we'd actually permanently put the name of our haunt on the front facade. But up until now we didn't have a god way of getting some lettering in place. Fortunately, we got pour cheap little projector, which turned out to actually be pretty good. So, we...
