Here is one of the techniques I use to attain the rotting flesh look. This method involves using plastic wrap, a heat gun, wood stain, spray paint and craft paint. First wrap your cheap skulls or bones in a few layers of plastic food wrap. It doesn't matter what brand. Then take your heat gun and melt areas away until you get your desired look. Some hairdryers may be able to get hot enough to do this to. Then take your wood stain (I think i used an oak on the skull - just because that is what I had laying around.) and paints and start adding a little color. Color choices are completely up to you but i used red, flesh, dk brown, black, white, grey.

Its that time of year again and I thought I would stop in to share some of our new hauntingly awesome projects.
Super excited about our static guillotine. This project was made using scrap lumber we had laying around. The blade is from a scrap piece of wall panel that was given a quick burst of silver paint, added a couple eye hooks and some rope and of course evidence of its use.
The Haunter: The armature is just 2 inch chicken wire that we wrapped around a tomato cage, added a bamboo stake to attach the skull to, the white cloth is a cheap dollar store sheet and the black cheese cloth comes from there as well. He does look a little shiny right now but we are expecting rain and fall weather, so that will cure that before Halloween night.
Easy with Maximum impact:
I hope you can find some inspiration from these. Happy Haunting!
