Got motivated made my first ever monster mud reaper. Instead of using the regular drywall joint compound mud, I used "hot mud" drywall compound w/ the 40 min dry time. Still have to weather proof him, airbrush, and the stand he is on I will be putting in lights just like the hot coals effect but will make it look like he is coming out of lava, and putting in a fog machine in the box w/ holes cut in it so it looks like he is smoking.

He is about 8ft tall =]

Looks really nice! After 20 years of haunting, i've never made a monster mud prop but always like the ones others make. Looking forward to seeing it completed.

So did using the hot mud cause any problems ?
The only problem w/ the hot mud is that you have to move quick because it dries really fast, but on the bright side it the left overs becomes really thick adding more mud to smear on and it dries quickly. =]
