Hey there, im new to the forum and i just wanted to say hi. I have joined up with a few friends to have a huge halloween party. Im incharge of alot of decorations. I am working on a 5' 2" skull with red blinking eyes. It's very challenging but it will be worth it in the end. I am also building Wolverine Claws which you can find on ebay to get money for my Halloween costume. I will post some skull photos soon.
If you have a compressor, or a friend with one, I would suggest painting the skull with a latex sprayer. I have one and have found it to be extremely useful when painting larger pieces. It's like a big airbrush. The one I have is very adjustable, so you can go from a soft, fine mist up to a full-open, heavy spray.
