Hello Everyone. Just wondering if anyone has any idea how I can make a whole bunch of bones, skulls etc, quickly, simply and cheaply. I am thinking of having one of my skeletons pushing a wheelbarrow full of body parts and such.
There's a sconce tutorial in the tutorial section that uses sticks and adds newspaper at the ends to finish off the shape. You might even be able to find sticks that look like ribs and similar bones without having to add anything. To speed things up you could skip the paper mache and just give them a good coat of exterior grade paint. Skulls would be harder to create quickly but a few Dollar Tree skulls wouldn't add much to the budget.
down here wal mart sells a "bag of bones" for $10. it usually has some odd bones and at least one skull. You could also check Big Lots (if you have one) and grab a few budget skellys and break them down into their pieces.
