As requested I am posting pics of my first prop (before and after). I had to contact the seller and asked if the still had the pic's from the add and they did, so here they are!!!!!






Now after removing the interior, sanding, painting nightmare (too much to explain), dying the interior and reinstallation here is what we have.






Now I have to set up the lower half as a cooler (pop - beer- etc.). And make a body for the top half!!!!!!

The coffin looks great!! Very professional looking. I'm sure it took quite a bit of time to do all that.

Thanks all, had an extra 20. last night so I went out and bought Styrofoam wig head, flesh paint, and air dry clay. I will attempt to make the head for my prop later tonight, but I am so anal when it comes to what I am working on it has to turn out real looking or I will resort to using a mask.

Ok, Been screwing around trying to make a realistic head. Started with a styrofoam mold and added DAS clay. I still have to get the facial color correct , add eyebrow, nose and ear hair. But I am still not real happy with the way it's turning out!!!!!






This is Trevor my 200 lbs crash test dummy assistant, he is not much for words or help!! LOL

The only problem I can see is the nose is too "sharp" compared to the rest of the face...otherwise it looks great!

Your sculpting skills are terrific. Perhaps more winkles? I dunno, it looks great to me. By the way, love your workshop. I'm stealing the way you organize your wire spools. :)

I'd say bald. I read in another thread that you wanted that freshly buried look. I think your head so far shows that great.


If you are looking for some other ideas, check out My Pet Zombies

Here's a zombie there that freaks me out:
