Thanks, after studying this stone, I think I will add to it when I get some more foam scraps, I have a few ideas that will make it more 3 dimensional I think

Thought you'd appreciate this Spooky, guy is testing out his AtmosFearFX videos on a fog screen. Awesome effect.

More info on the fog screen...


It is an old Sharp Notevision projector, and the fog screen is a box with 14 computer fans that create 2 walls of air. Fog is pumped through a 4" PVC pipe in the center with a slit cut lengthwise along the pipe. I need to add drinking straws to channel the air from the fans for a cleaner flow.

well, the ass-hats at FB closed my Halloween account because I refused to use my real name (I have a personal FB for that) so I guess I'll have to just update straight to here from now on.....

This site is better then FB anyways.

Okay, here are the beginnings of a few "props", one is a column that will look like brick and the second is a groundbreaker coffin that (if everything goes right) will bang its door as someone walks by.....

The wood grain detail is very convincing.

Spooky, you really need to quit your day job and start a business selling your props.

Thanks guys!

Did some more painting today on one of my brick columns.......I keep getting asked why am I making a column that looks JUST like the column thats there, well, I cant drill holes and mount lights in the actual column, I would have a mess of wires dangling all over, so doing it this way, I can hide the wires (and this really messes with the maintenance man too, he keeps thinking I messing up the building :) )

I still have the weathering to do to it but here is the real one and my fake foam one
