  1. Papermache 101

    General Halloween
    I stumbled across these amazing newspaper sculptures by a very talented artist - Will Kurtz. To simply call it paper mache is an insult. Even though his subject matter is very “ordinary”, that is to say everyday people doing everyday things, it has an unusual macabre feel to it. Maybe I’m just a...

    Halloween Props
    I need some suggestions on materials to use to create a large 3 dimensional skull to go in front of our steps leading onto our porch. Im guessing it would be 10|12’ tall by 7-8’ wide. My initial thought was to carve it out of some type of lightweight styrofoam or insulation but it seems like id...

  6. Cool Halloween Sculptures/Art

    General Halloween
    I'm loving some of the upcoming sculptures from Creep Baby Studio. I picked up one of their pumpkins and a gourd last Halloween. I snagged the pumpkin for around $10 and got into a bidding war for the gourd. I ended up spending about $35, but he was worth it! I'm hoping they're gearing up for...
  7. Static: Vincent Price - a sculpting project by Mr. Chicken

    Halloween Props
    Here's what's in the works currently. The plan is to have a realistic bust of Vincent Price, with silicone skin, punched hair, acrylic eyes, etc. Should be a nice portfolio piece if it works out how I'm envisioning it. I'm going for a "House on Haunted Hill" era Vincent. Step 1: armature...

  9. Static: Large, lightweight sculpture materials?

  10. Static: Oil Clay Sculpture

    Halloween Props
    So I was playing around with some clay and ended up sculpting an entire head on a blucky skull that I had covered in paper mache. I like it so much that I want to keep it. So I need some advice from the group. How do I make it permanent? I was considering painting several coats of drylock since...
  11. Static: Life Size Jack Skellington

    Halloween Props
    He's FINALLY done! And he's my favorite project thus far. =) As much as I wish this was my original idea there are several people who have made a life-size Jack Skellington and this site had a great tutorial that I followed. He's a bit top heavy and the weight is unevenly distributed so he's...
