  5. Static: Grim reaper & monster mud question

    Halloween Props
    For anyone who has built this one: https://www.instructables.com/id/Monster-Mud-Reaper/ Can it be disassembled once the burlap has been Monster Mudded?

  6. Mechanical: Wiper Motor Arm Attachment Help

    Halloween Props
    Does any one have a good way of attaching an arm to a basic wiper motor like you would get on monster guts? I need a longer arm than the ones provided.

  7. Static: Cadaver tomb

    I wanted to have a simple shroud over my skeleton cadaver on this tomb. I know many people use monster mud to get the effect but that it is also fairly heavy. Since the shroud really will not be supporting any weight can I skip the joint compound?

    Halloween Props
    RIP My poor monster met a bad end last year during a storm. He fell on his face and it got smooshed in. An arm fell off. It was all kinds of not great. Originally his face and arms were made of polycrylic paper mache. The arms survived with minimal damage and I am going to reuse them. I am...
