  1. Halloween Props
    I need advice here. I am far from artistically inclined, and my clown entrance looks terrible. Now, I've been considering just totally repainting it in a different style and everything, but before I do that, does anyone have any ideas on how to improve/add more detail to it? Thanks!

    I made this prop today, tried to go for the old mummy corpse look using the plastic method. Any tips to make it better?
  3. General Halloween
    Found this adorable hollow concrete cat a while back. Today I decided to paint him black & perch him on a fence post. There are strong wooden dowels inside so he isn’t easily stolen or knocked off.

    As background, I have purchased several masks from Trick or Treat Studios. I didn't have any problems with the transactions, and the masks arrived in good shape. I posted reviews of each mask on their website, in which I went into some detail. My 4- and 5-star reviews were approved, and they...

    Last year, I got a last-minute idea to try and make a Pennywise head prop out of an extra styrofoam head I had at the house. Somehow in 7 years living at my house, I had never thought to incorporate the storm drain in front of my yard! Anyway, you don't need a drain, he looked pretty neat...

    After seeing some great projects with it here I finally bought a Squawkers McCaw and the board to go with it from J-Man. The problem is that my theme is a spooky graveyard, nothing piratey. My solution is to turn Squakwers into a zombie parrot in a cage, but I'm not sure how to tackle paining...

    I have a cheap, flimsy Frankenstein mask I bought at Walmart several years ago. The paint job on it is terrible, but I always thought the sculpt was kind of cool. I decided to make it into a piece of wall art. This is what the piece looked like coming out of storage. The mask was wrinkled...

    Hi All, I have seen the various threads about water/weatherproofing props but still could use some help. Last year I made a few props that didn't last even a week in the rainy conditions of the general Seattle area. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for me or maybe pointed to what I did...

    I’m thinking about getting a airbrush unit for doing tombstones and a few other items. Up to this point I have been using tinted Drilock and washing a paint over that. The problem is all the stones basically look the same. Any good techniques or tips of using a airbrush to add some character to...

    The last time I made something out of paper mache was in the fourth grade, so I am beyond rusty. However, we love the look of props created with paper mache and we're going to increase the number of projects that use it going forward. But there in lies the tale. I'm the one who's going to be...
