    To whom is reading this. I need help with a project I am working on for this Halloween. First, a little about the prop. I build this pumpkin out of cast material. The same material the hospitals use when you brake a bone and cover the area with casting material. I started with a balloon and...
  5. Upcycling a cheap mask

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    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...

  11. The first (and probably last) Ghostbusters Halloween train!

    General Halloween
    Been working on this idea for a while. I've taken an old Ecto 1 remote controlled car with lights and siren that a guy modified to add more lights and wanted to mount it to one of my trains for Halloween. The trick was it had to be high enough to get around the other trains since I've got 3...
