Skull Archway

So I shot some gray wood stain through the gun yesterday and got most of the Great Stuff covered. Gonna shoot a little black on the "Stone" section for some shadowing and depth next.

Skull Archway

Ok, so here's what I got so far... This is half of the arch, it's almost 7 feet tall and I have made somewhere around 100 skulls for it. The yellow you see is Great Stuff that I plan to stain in gray to offset the color of the skulls. More pics to…

Insulation Foam in a Can

Posted on July 17, 2016 at 11:28pm 6 Comments

So after some experimenting and viewing a short informative video on YouTube, I have concluded that using the blue can of Great Stuff is much better than the red can when casting.  The blue can does comes out yellow, but once it's cured, I haven't noticed any shrinking at all.  The red can was hit or miss, some of my skulls shrank, some didn't.  If anyone is interested in the video, I'll post a link to it.  It also comes with a neat little trick for casting.

Spotlights on a circuit

Posted on October 15, 2014 at 11:09pm 8 Comments

Got a question hopefully someone can answer.  I want to run a few spotlights together in a circuit to be plugged into our outside electrical outlet but have absolutely no idea how to do it.  I'm tired of using up a million batteries and having to turn each one on and off individually.  Anybody have any ideas?

Vandals, Theft or Weather...

 Which one are you guys most worried about when it comes to your most cherished props?  Not too worried about vandals or thieves since I live on a Marine Corps base. I have spent alot of time this year building new props that I am very proud of but still worried about this crazy NC weather and what might happen to my awesome props.  Do you guys bring it all inside if the weather is predicted to get worse?  I weatherproofed everything with enough Drylock and latex paint that everything should…

I've been a haunter for a few years now, but still get confused every once in a while with some terms that are thrown out there by my fellow haunters.  Does anyone know of, or can provide a basic glossary/terminology for us haunters that love making our creations year after year?

Thanks for reaching out. I'm new here and want to start stepping up my game. Not sure where to start. But I like your stuff. And your step by step pics are really helpful in breaking things down into their respective parts.

Do you have photos of the serpent on the pole build? Would really like to do something like this on my 8' reapers scythe.
