Any opinions about applying MM to burlap. Whats better, dipping method or a painting on method. Also..my burlap looks rather thin. I got it at Homedepot. Is the MM going to fill in the gaps. I'm assuming so but wanted to check before I started. I'm building a reeper.

I have a little experience with MM and burlap...just got done building a full size horse. Anyway, plunge the burlap into the MM and then pull it out bewteen your figures to get off any excess. Place the burlap on you prop and allow it to dry. There will be small holes in the burlap that the MM did not fill, once the burlap is dry you can take MM in you hand and fill the holes with that. I will try to find my horse build and link it....

I put plastic on the floor and still ended up with getting some on the concrete...ehh it will come off (eventually). I'll post pics at some point. I found an oil lamp at the Dollar General and am going to rig a light in it that the reaper will be holding. The head (skull) and hands I have taken from a ground breaker that I bought from Walmart last year.
If you are going to have him holding a lights its a good idea to run the wiring through the prop before you get it all MMed. I usually run me wires out the back of the prop about a foot off the ground.

If it were me, which it isnt, I run the wire just in case. I think your going to discover that batteries dont cut it and you'll want to plug it in. If you have never wired a light I have a thread on here someplace where I wired some light that were designed to hold candals. Anyway....good luck and have fun with it!
