  4. Static: Help with a foam project

  6. What to do when you can't stake out your flood lights?

    General Halloween
    After a very wet spring and equally dry summer, my yard is literally baked clay. So glad I'm not doing my regular cemetery with tons of rebar to drive into the ground.

    I just got my delivery from Froggy's today minutes before I had to head into work. I have two machines I'm running, one to my Bone of Arc and the other to the cauldron creep. In a bit of twisted humor I decided to order the barbeque scent to run with the burned at the stake prop. Opened up...
  10. Static: Starting my burned at the stake...

    I was inspired by OctART's log in the burning coals prop thread and decided to incorporate it directly into my Bone of Arc prop. I wrapped chicken wire around a 4" piece of PVC that is 7' long, after the pipe was wrapped with saran wrap. Did the Great Stuff application, then cut the wire off...
