    This is my introduction to corpsing with plastic drop cloth and a heat gun, never did it before. Took about two hours to get the type of coverage I wanted. Took two rolls of drop cloth as I doubled, tripled and quadrupled thickness in various sections, also, knotting took up a lot. You knot the...

    I'm still working on some final touches but I was able to build this guy in a few hours using materials I already had. I'm going to use him in my haunt display at a ranch where I board my horses with a life-size skeleton horse I just received yesterday. I think they will fit right in.

    Over the years I've seen the trees to use as props get cheaper and cheaper. So I'm starting to weld my own strong trees. I use rebar and cable cut into short lengths. As you can see from the pictures I've tried to make them look scary.

    Hi, guys! Last year, I attempted to make a tall, static "pumpkin man" for my spooky circus display. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get the arms and legs to stay in position. i thought that tape would be enough, but after a short period of time, his arms began to fall, and his legs bent in a...

    I am working on creating my first static character prop. I created her frame out of pvc. She obviously will not stand on her own yet though and I am in desperate need of a way to mount her to stand. I have seen tutorials around about how to mount them onto a board. However, I want to know if...

    Hi, I'm new here. My name's Lisa and I'm currently working on building a haunted tree so I thought I'd post some progress pics.

    This was by far the easiest prop I've made this season. I received the barrel already stained this nice brownish color. A friend made me the decals. A little brown and yellow paint smeared around by hand help age the decals. Fermilab is just a few miles from my house, Im hoping the locals will...

    My first statue, over 7 ft. tall, all mudded and dried, I started putting on drylock this morning, and it's cracking and pulling away I don't know if this is normal or not, the mud is very well dried for a couple of days now, in a 70 degree room, so I wouldn't think the cause is moisture. I've...

    We had a huge thunderstorm roll in today so i decided to put my free time to good use. This is the frame for my Slenderman prop. Currently it stands just over seven feet. The bricks are temporary weight until i can get some sandbags. Apparently there was a run on them today with the storm.

    Hi gang - I want to try my hand at building my first cemetery fence this year, using the popular PVC pipe and furring strip method. My question: how does one secure the pipe (vertical) lengths to the furring strips (horizontal)? Is there a "sweet spot" to put a screw through each join to keep...
